I'm not saying anything about the quality of the receiver here.
All I'm saying is that Walter was covered by 3 guys.
And when that happens, the QB would never throw the ball to you.
I'm not saying that it happens all the time either.
But there are several factors combined to explain why his production was reduced.
It was not because he can no longer get open.
It was not because he dropped too many balls.
There's no diminishing in his level of play is the point I'm making.
