Even if Walker had jumped up, he would have had to fight Akamura for the ball and my guess is he would have lost anyway or the pass would have been incomplete. The point is the pass was off target and favored the defender.

46-Delanie Walker: He played 21 snaps and did not catch a pass. He should've tried to break up a deep pass from Smith that resulted in Amukamara's interception.
look at the picture on the maiocco link posted here---akamura is up air and walker's feet are still on the ground
i couldnt count how many times someone has posted that smith should not be so autious and should give the receivers a chance to make a play on the ball
well on this play he did and walker didnt do it
his 2nd and 3rd ints were horrible decisions and throws but this 1st one is one of the risks you take when you throw downfield, and is more likely to be a pick when the receiver fails to make a play on the ball as walker failed here
In no way is that pass off target, it was put in a spot where the receiver could make a play on it. Joecool even mentions it would have hit him in stride.
