Dwayne Bowe Underperforms

Dwayne Bowe Underperforms - In perhaps Dwayne Bowe’s most forgettable game of the season, the Chiefs perhaps saw Sunday how valuable the fourth-year wide receiver is to their offense. Bowe had zero catches against Denver, and Kansas City’s offense struggled. There’s a correlation there, the same as there is when running back Jamaal Charles has an unproductive contest, rare as those have been. The Chiefs need Bowe – and quarterback Matt Cassel, for that matter – to be in top form each week, and they’ll need both of them at their best next week at San Diego.

Speaking of that game…

The Chiefs didn’t have an especially passionate performance against a struggling Broncos team, and that’ll have to change next week against the Chargers. There are four games left in the regular season, but there’s no doubt that next week’s contest will have a major impact on the AFC West race. The Chiefs remain in control of their own destiny, but they’ll need a far better showing next week than they had at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.

Where’s Tamba Hali been?

The team’s best pass rusher had a terrific performance Sunday, sacking Kyle Orton twice after hitting a dry spell the past three weeks. His second sack was his most impressive, when he beat left tackle Ryan Clady, one of the league’s best linemen, to reach Orton; Hali forced a fumble and recovered it, too. When he’s on, Hali is a terrific pass rusher, but he’s also mostly all the Chiefs have to get after quarterbacks. He’ll have to continue carrying a full load until Kansas City gets him some help – which needs to happen sooner rather than later, right after the team signs Hali to a contract extension.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
