Walter runs very crisp and precice routes which is a big part of the reason they use him in combination routes that free up other guy's.

Her didnt hesitate .... Schaub made an errant throw and Walter made the catch anyway.

It looked like he slowed his run to me. either that or the corner got faster for a brief second.

yep. Looks like some fans are finally starting to figure out our offense. The no. 2 WR plays a specific role. Just because two players are wide receivers does not necessarily mean that they are used the exact same way in the scheme. The folks complaining that Walter could not just step up as no. 1 when AJ went down always seems confused by this Kubiak offense. When we eventually lose Walter, they will be shocked when Kubiak tries to find another no. 2 WR just like him simply because that's how this offense is designed.

He already found a no. 2 just like him. It's my firm belief he drafted Posey for the specific purpose of taking that role in 3 or 4 years. So we can make the transition without a hitch

Even so, people like the OP who are/were at the least anti-Walter fans have been quiet, and I haven't heard any peeps about him getting benched for Jean even when he's 100%. I like Jean but some people have gross overassumptions of what he really is, which is probably at best a contributor that can make some plays, but is likely not going to be a superstar and maybe not even an NFL starter.

Man Im not looking forward to that .... But then again , maybe some who have been on Walters ass for the past year or two will finally realize just how important he is to the success of this offensive scheme and in every facet.

He's on pace to have his best year since 2008 which was the last time he had over 800 yards receiving.

There's been rumors and talk that maybe he's been playing with and through injuries the past couple of years. If that's true and if he returns to 2008 form, that could be huge because 2007/2008, KW was a clutch, go-to, move-the-chains receiver. 2009/2010/2011... not so much.

Regardless. If Everyone in the organization "knew" KDub was capable of a game like that, he wouldn't have been asked to take a paycut. He would have restructured or exteded his deal. As it is, He obviously plays better than he practices & Kubiak went on faith & put in a few plays for him to "stretch" the defense.

He looked like a #2 receiver. A prototypical productive #2. Reggie Wayne to Marvin Harris, Torry Holt to Isaac Bruce, Torry Smith to Anquan Boldin.... ok, he looked better than Boldin & Smith combined, but you get my point.

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

According to spotrac, KW received a $1M bonus in 2011 to bump his overall salary to $3M.

I try to compare his contract with other #2 receiver on 15 other teams (starting in alphabet order: AZ, ATL, and so on,) I found that there's only one team with two receivers having a better contract than KW (the Bears with Edwards and Hester.)

KW's contract is actually better than that of the #1 receiver on some team.

Paycut or no paycut, he's still very well compensated.
