Burress had 45 catches on 97 targets. Walter had 39 catches on 59 targets. LOL, ok.
What matters is how productive a guy is based on the amount of chances he gets. Efficiency is what matters in football, not raw stats.
Plaxico was 3rd in targets for the NYJ behind Dustin Keller and Santonio Holmes last year, per ESPN
, with 97 targets.
The Jets threw the ball 597 times and completed 310 passes.
Walter was 4th in targets for HOU behind Owen Daniels, Arian Foster, and Jacoby Jones, per ESPN, with 59 targets.
The Texans threw the ball 467 times and completed 288 passes.
Where do you see that Walter was ever the top WR target for the Texans in 2011? He had less targets than Jacoby Jones. The top target for Texans QBs in 2011 was Owen Daniels by a long shot.
I'll take the guy that catches the ball 66% of the time it is thrown at him and is efficient when he is on the field, over the guy that only catches 47% of the passes thrown his way.
I also don't understand how you can even come to the conclusion that Walter somehow had more chances, or was more of a #1 receiver than Plaxico given the stats that have already been put out in front of you before this post.
But whatever, let's pick up the guy that has barely worked out for anyone and is begging for a contract at league minimum.
