- From profootball.scout.com: "Inconsistency has plagued him and Bowe dropped a ton of catchable balls last season."
- From warroomreport.com: "Bowe had a rather up and down career at LSU. He never seemed to dominate as one would expect."
- From mymockdraft.com: "Has had a lot of trouble with dropped balls...Needs to show better concentration."
Are you starting to get the point?
Bowe's light could be bright in 2010.
The light may have finally come on in Bowe's head, however. Despite missing half the workouts, Bowe has been attending Larry Fitzgerald's wide-receivers camp, working with some of the NFL's former and current wide-outs.
Two of those former players, Michael Irvin and Cris Carter, had apparently been contacted by the Chiefs "administration" about keeping an eye on the spacey receiver. Bowe apparently got the message once he showed up.
"Can you imagine your first day coming back to 14, 100s?" Bowe said of the grueling start. "Man, it was like college again. I've never done this intensive competing, conditioning and technique in one day."
This coming from a guy that showed up to a Todd Haley training camp overweight in ‘09 and spent much of the first week struggling to pass a conditioning drill. Bowe apparently adjusted quickly to the rigorous schedule, prompting Fitzgerald to praise the Chiefs receiver on his twitter account.
Has Bowe turned the corner?
"Bowe should put up huge numbers this year in K.C.. He's been working his tail off up here."
With the Chiefs' only other true wide-out threat being 31 year-old Chris Chambers, Charlie Weis, Matt Cassel and the rest of this Chiefs offense needs Bowe to step up his game. If Bowe does not become the player he is capable of becoming and finally live up to his first-round status, this 2010 Chiefs offense is doomed.
Or is it?
Many fans have been pointing to the Week 17 victory in Denver as a sign to be optimistic about the Chiefs offense. In a game where the Chiefs had their best offensive showing of the season, 524 yards (207 passing) were put up, with "The Show" only contributing a total of 6 yards.
