Overheard: Bowe ready to play

Posted Aug 22, 2012

Rachel Santschi gives you a recap of what the players are saying leading up to Friday night's third preseason game against Seattle

Third day of practice down, walk-through on Thursday and another preseason game on Friday against the Seattle Seahawks - things are moving fast around Arrowhead and so is wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.

After just two days of practicing in pads head coach Romeo Crennel said Bowe will see some playing time on Friday.

Post-practice, Chiefs players met with the media to discuss the third preseason game and the improvements being made.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe on if he is ready to play Friday in the third preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks:

“I think so. Coach said I’m ready from what he’s been looking at and I’m going to play until they tell me not to.”

Bowe on what he wants to see from himself in Friday night’s game:

“To continue where I left off – being dominate catching the ball, finishing, blocking downfield and helping this team win.”

Safety Abram Elam on the how the team is preparing for the upcoming game and the season opener:

“We’re just trying to build. We know this is still the preseason and we have our first game against Atlanta coming up so we’re still in training camp mode, still installing, preparing, and correcting mistakes.”

Cornerback Javier Arenas on the team’s reaction to Romeo Crennel’s disappointment after the loss to St. Louis:

“I think it brings the fight and the dog out in the competitors. I honestly believe we have all competitors on this team. Each guy is a competitor. So when (Crennel) brings stuff up like that we take it to heart, take it personal, don’t let it discourage us, and we go out there and learn from our mistakes and get better.”

Quarterback Brady Quinn on how he is trying to improve in the quarterback race:

“I think we have a lot of different guys mixed in here and there so we’ve had a good amount of time to get adjusted to some of the wide receivers but we’re still working on those nuances. This is my first years being here with these guys so the rest of the guys have seen the different body languages of the wide receivers so they can anticipate a little bit better. I’m still trying to get a better feel for some of the guys out here.”
