Fast Lane: The Issue with Cleveland Browns receiver Dwayne Bowe and More!

What's going on with Dwayne Bowe? What does the coaching staff think about Manziel and the Seahawks? Get the answers to these questions and more in our Premium Member forums!

The issue with Dwayne Bowe isn’t as simple as a player simply not playing up to expectations on the field, writes Lane Adkins, in the very latest of his Random Thoughts from the infamous Fast Lane forum.

Of course, the hamstring injury suffered by Bowe didn’t help, but were there expectations of special treatment assumed by the expensive free agent? Did he work as hard as other players on the squad? Get the answers behind the continued benching of Bowe here.

Also answered in the Fast Lane:

How does the coaching feel Manziel will do against the Seahawks?
