Start Walker

Vernon is a better blocker and has looked better in preseason this year. Here's an idea, why not put Robinson in at HB and Delanie in a WR and run a HB option? Robinson could either run with Delanie blocking or he could use his QB skills and throw to Delanie as a WR.

Let's face it...Walker's the better receiver, Vernon the better blocker. We need Vernon in the run game...and both in the passing game. Given Raye likes to run and it sure looks like between Gore & Coffee he'll have a stout run offense, it really wouldn't make sense to start Walker. Delanie will get the ball...as will Vernon, but Davis is too valuable a blocker to sit on the bench.

Which is why the double tight seems to fit us perfectly but the only thing is that our RBs like having that lead blocker to read off of.

yeah I'd like to see more TE screens to Delanie out of these formations.

or have Delanie line up at FB just to receive a screen or a quick pass..... I love Vernon as our starter....but I also wish we would/have use Delanie more in the past....and hopefully this year.

or we can also just use Delanie as a slot WR in a normal set......I mean he came out of college as a WR.
I'm sure he'd be a better downfield blocker than Zeigler

No way. I drafted Vernon in my fantasy league. Expecting big things from him this season. It's the first time I have ever really believed in him.

you're quote is bitter sweet! "it's the first time i have ever really believed in him". 4th year guys. 6th overall... he needs to start playing his worth!

If Davis is one of the best blocking TE in the game, then he is just a better Billy Bajema. Delanie Walker is a better playmaker until Vernon proves otherwise.

Based on . . . .???

catching the ball and moving the chains! vernon was never suppose to be a blocker! his intent in the league was suppose to be a catch balls! vernon looked good in the preseason so far. but overall. delanie walker has shown more in the regular season when he isn't injured. td's matter buddy!

They sure DO, buddy!!!

VD, now with 350% more touchdowns than DW.

both have played... but honestly who gets more playing time??? he prolly gets 350% more playing time as well. i'm not saying delanie walker should start. but vernon needs to get his ass in gear and start looking like tony gonzalez, and antonio gates real soon. he's had way too much time and years to not be called a probowl STARTER!

Dude you got owned and now you are backtracking

Exactly. Walker is good receiving TE but you need to block well too.

Delanie Walker is a converted juco receiver. He isn't good enough to start at tight end in the NFL.

vernon makes how much? delanie makes how much? delanies playing his production to his price ratio... can you say the same for vernons 4 years? cmon man.

you said delanie started 13 and vernon started 38 and delanie gots 359 yards and vernon gots 1,132... don't you see something wrong with the numbers? vernons not as productive buddy!

Look at the numbers Vernon is more productive than Walker.

Im not saying Vernon has been a Tony Gonzales or an Antonio Gates, but he has been better the Walker, and thats what this is about Walker vs Davis.

Davis is the better overall TE compared to Walker.
Does Davis need to pick up his production? No Doubt
Davis gives us the better chance to win because of his Overall skill set

I like Walker and he is doing exactly what he should do as a backup TE

Walker will get his chances, cuz like a previous poster said i think we will be using a lot of 2 TE sets, but he is nothing more than a sold backup pass catching TE
Haha

Walker starts TE for me in Madden.....But only cuz i have Vernon at Fullback.

Walker is good but Vernon is a beast at blocking and once he masters catching the f**king ball he will be unstoppable especially with Hill at Qb. Alex will also feed him nicely if he ever has to step in becasue that's whose Raye's offense is going to utilize besides Frankie G.

Any Objection?

You can utilize both. There are such things as two TE sets.

yes there is but why not walker and pascoe. they can catch better than VD which is proven and as for blocking well lets say thats the only thing VD can do right....



Which just about every TE in the NFL has to be good at.
