I don't think he's lying at all.... but maybe his idea of open isn't the same as Schaub's idea of open & his is the one that counts. Besides, 76 may not be able to post video, but he's mastered the art of the screen shot & has the photobucket account to prove it.
I really wanted to post some screen shots, but I really don't have the time that I like to have.

At this moment, I should be watching to see which guys might make the roster instead of engaging in this debate.

Walter will be doing the same thing he's been doing for the Texans this year.
Next year, we don't know yet.
It's too far off in the future to make any kind of prediction on an old veteran whose health may not hold up with all the wears and tears that go with the territory.

It's a good guess that he also had good hands in 2008.

He caught more balls in that time period than McCaffrey whom some of you guys thought to be really great.

And the first half of the Titans game I just broke down shows that Walter did get open. (And this happened in every of the 9 games I watched with the All-22 view and the end zone view).

He could have had at least 5 catches at the half easily.
I just don't see that as a definitive evidence personally. I think you want to believe that Walter is able to get open and make all of these plays. Sometimes people see what they want to see.

I just wish this thread would die at this point. Walter is going to go into the season as the #2 guy. I think he'll slowly get phased out of the offense though. Either way, I'll root for him and every other Texan to play well. Especially the young WR's that keep showing praise.

Default Re: Kevin Walter can go sit on the bench..

The thing with Walter is: he can be really good receiving wise in a couple of games and then disappear for the next couple of games. I dont know if that`s because our QB isn`t looking his way, or if it is a motivational issue on his part, or if he just can`t beat certain kind of DBs. Whatever it is, it`s frustrating, and that`s why so many people want to replace him.

But he is very valueable beyond his catching ability. His blocking, his experience, his leadership and not to forget he is a WR that is never complaining. The ultimate team player. But I don`t think Kubiack would be mad, to put Walter at WR3 with a real receiving threat at WR2. But so far none of our young guys have proven, that they are mature enough and can do all the little things besides receiving. If Martin or Jean can develope into that player, I think everyone will be happy.

Did anyone see Walter block Kyle Wilson into the endzone on Foster's TD run?

TBH, Walter is looking a lot better in general this year than I expected. Thought he was getting a little old, but I guess last year was just not his best year for some other reason.

Kevin has played well so far this year in his role. When Jean comes back its gonna help out big time I think. We need another threat to help out the crew.

Schaub has been looking a lot better this year. Stretching the field & finding open receivers every where. He's got AJ, OD, & KDub and he's using them all on any part of the field.

Schaub is focused and hungry this year. Someone said this last week and I think they made a good point. Having to watch TJ finish the season and play in the playoffs was murder on him. He wants his turn.

I think Kevin has played pretty damn well this year. The guy is consistent with great hands. None of the "kids" have stepped up yet, so Kevin, Andre and Daniels are still carrying the load for the most part.

Is it just me or does Walter seem to have gotten MUCH better at bursting off the line and getting separation? He'll never be a speed demon, but he's been a legit deep option for us this season. Good news.

The CB was biting on all of Walter's double moves. I've never seen Walter do that...

It must have been film study because Jimmy Smith has been known to bite on the double moves, and give up a bomb. Good job on Walter's part for studying his opponent beforehand.

Shoulda had two TD's .... Schaub missed him on one and had another one way off target that Walter bailed him out on after getting .... all alone wide open.

He worked the double move beautifully today. This is what we need to see from KDub on a more consistent basis. I can't remember when he had a better game.

I don't expect him to play like this every game, but it would be nice to see this more times than not.
