Not saying it's going to turn into AZ's offense but couple that with the absence of Gonzo now and Bowe should at the least see a nice spike in targets. I would expect atleast a repeat of last year with another 100-200 yards and 2 or 3 more scores.
Another thing to consider though is that a lot of teams used their best cover guys on Gonzo rather than Bowe and that will all change now which could hurt him a bit. It'll hurt not having another good target on that team I think...
Well I don't think most #1 corners were on Gonzo each week, although you have to admit he made things so much easier for Bowe, guys like Gonzo, Witten, they open up things for the #1 WR not the other way around...So Bowe could struggle, but his targets will increase alot, and he was already at the top of the league in that department so it's a good look for him.
I've heard some things about him not having a great work ethic recently, but I don't know what to make of that because he's shown up and produced since day one, I think he can take that next jump to elite, if he could catch near 100 balls that would make him even that much more valuable.
Well I do know for example that Champ Bailey would regularly be on Gonzo and I know there were others as well that spent a lot of attention on Gonzalez moreso than Bowe in last season and past years as well. Gonzalez was their leading receiver last season and losing him will hurt Bowe more than helps him I think.
