But we still would have stuck to our two TE sets, with KW as WR2

With Hilton... given the fact that he was hanging on to the ball in Indy... it looks like he would have stepped up. Which would have led to more opportunities which Martin didn't get because he didn't step up.
Exactly. Kubiak and Schaub also looked early and often to Hopkins. There is zero reason to believe Walter's presence would have kept another WR from being targeted or that Walter couldn't be jumped on the depth chart. We also ran more than 2 WRs over 50% of the time and that was with Keshawn not catching 2/3rds of the balls thrown his way. There is no reason to believe we wouldn't have run more 3+ WR sets if our 3rd WR was catching 2/3rds instead.
