But we do have a need for #2...Walker is only in the NFL because he is an athlete. Not taking anything away from him but he is 6'0" 240 pounds, if he had been 2 inches shorter he would've been a strong safety or a fullback. Dude is a beast and can do almost anything so I love him, he's our utility guy, does anything and everything asked of him. Hell if both Willis and Bowman went down in the same game I bet Walker would become the back up LB, he's the same build as Bowman. But that is neither here nor there because he is a fairly solid TE.
But whoever mentioned New England is right, that is the offense that Harbaugh runs. 2 TE set with multiple looks, very little need for WRs, it's why we won 13 games with arguably the worst group of receivers in the league.
In the end it bit us in the ass because no one other then VD was able to do anything but I'd trade our 2011 offense for a group featuring a VD and Fleener or Dwayne Allen combo with a compliment of Crabtree, Morgan, Meachem, Draft choice(Stephen Hill, Brian Quick, Dwight Jones, Juron Criner), Ted Ginn, and Williams/Bogan/rookie.
