“While Bowe tries, and often tries too hard, he comes across as unreliable, difficult to read and consumed by ego,” Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star wrote Monday. “Bowe is good, but he’s not elite. Too many drops. Flawed route-running. Having no idea how his words sometimes make him sound. He should’ve hoped for, but not expected, a monster payday, and now he’ll have to wait several months for another swing.”

Bowe has always been a better fantasy player than real-life option. His conditioning, consistency, hands and attitude have been questioned over the years. Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli has committed to guys like linebacker Derrick Johnson, defensive back Brandon Flowers and running back Jamaal Charles, who are all “core” players. He doesn’t seem to view Bowe that way.

The game was electric football, a properly named toy featuring a vibrating sheet of metal that held 3-inch miniature figurines mimicking football as best they could.

Its inventor in 1948, Norman Sas, died June 28. He was 87.

His game lives on. Weird Wolf makes sure of it.

Better known as one of the Kansas City Chiefs’ most crazed fans — handed the name Weird Wolf for his outfits at Arrowhead Stadium — Lynn Schmidt grew up with electric football on his countertops.

Entering his fourth year in the league Curry looks unlikely to ever live up to his label of being the can’t-miss prospect of the ’09 draft. It took the Seahawks just two and a half years to hit the eject button on a man they picked 4th overall. If things don’t improve for Curry in 2012 you can expect the Raiders to make the same move by sending Curry on his way to the next stop of his pro career.

Even if Curry never sheds the bust label it doesn’t mean he can’t become a solid pro. The Raiders might not unearth a dominant defender in Curry but there is every reason to believe they could have a reliable starter for years to come.
