KW will never be a speed burner, but he HARDLY drops passes. He's a sure-handed guy who's definitely done a BETTER job of getting downfield this year. He should be a solid No. 3 but he's our No. 2 and I'm OK with that.

I've always been an a KW fan. He may not be flashy, or high profile but he can catch the ball in some clutch situations

For a guy with no speed he can still get seperation deep downfield, must run some MEAN routes.

I went off on KW a lot before the season. He is pleasantly surprising me at this point and playing better then expected. Hopefully he can keep it up.

To me the biggest difference is having AJ out there healthy and coverages rolling to him and KW has always been good at getting into holes in coverage. He's not a typical WR or the kind that you and I would want for a #2 slot on the WR corps, but he's certainly got a niche in the offense. I do think it's a matter of time before he does get supplanted and moved down into the #3 where he's better suited. I don't know if he's exceeding my expectations as much as he looks better in the role he's supposed to be in.

Overall the execution in this offense has been impressive this year in that this offense will come at you from different angles. They're a run first team with Foster and Tate, they can go over the top with AJ, OD is killing people over the middle (already has matched last season's TDs), and it seems like other people, while not consistent, are stepping up and making plays when they need it. Schaub has been pretty much like a conductor in this offense this year distributing the ball.

Thats why I said he should have had 2 TD's ... the other one Schaub made go to the turf when he was all alone. That ball thrown accurately he coulda jogged to the endzone.

KW plays amazingly well 1 or 2 games a year, pretty well for a bunch of others, and disappears for a few. This is not out of his normal production. Ravens were missing their #1 corner. He had a good matchup and exploited it. I wouldn't call this a breakout performance just yet

Kw is doing what he needs to do. Catch footballs and get open. This is what will keep him as a starter. Blocking and stuff is great, but wr's must catch footballs.

He does what he always does. He is a GREAT complimentary receiver and possession guy. No one would ever call him a #1 WR (although when he has been #1 with AJ out he has done pretty decently) but he is all you want in a #2. Reliable, great hands, in great sync with the QB, aware of down and distance and a great blocker.

Kevin Walter is still on of my favorite Texan. His kick butt attitude and catching damned near everything thrown his way will keep him on my list. Some things can't be coached or taught. Attitude is one.

To me it looked like Kubiak changed their roles up a little bit. He knows that Andre is still going to get a lot of attention, but he didn't ask Andre to sprint up field. Andre did a lot of hooks, quick outs, a lot of "possesion" type stuff. KDub.... I don't know if I ever saw him downfield that often.

We finally found a receiver that can't outrun Matt's arm, & that may be a good thing for us. If Kubiak can keep drawing up plays to get him open..... may actually make more sense than trying to get the young'ns up to speed.

Andre still appears to be high on Schaub's progression list, 9 catches for 86 yards... add a touchdown & I'd take that any day, every day.

Jean made a few plays when given the opportunity .... he's been inactive after a knee scope for the past couple weeks. I expect him to contribute when he returns .... believe it or not , he's much like Walter.

Wasn't he on the field yesterday? I think he took several snaps, especially late. I don't think he was targeted, but he didn't look bad.

That second deep ball that KDub caught in the middle of the 3rd would have been a TD if he hadn't have hesitated. We scored anyway and took waaaay more time off the clock, which worked out better in my opinion.
