So while his drops and even fumbles at times leave a lot to be desired, he does sooo many other things well. I would say he is far from OVER-rated because most fans only look at his stats and don't rate him highly at all

The role Walker plays for us is very hard to upgrade. TE/WR/Blocker/ Sp teams? I don't think the Jack of all trades backup is a position you can really upgrade. I think the starting TE position really can use some help. We are really blaming Walker for VD's shortcomings. In reality VD needs to be more productive to where we don't need to give Walker that many looks.
I disagree. My primary complaint is with Walker's hands which is something that has little to do with VD's production. Moreover, the reason why Walker is even in the game is because Williams and Manningham went down.
