If you guys re-watch the play (the link below @ .11 secs) the ball was not thrown very well, it took forever to get there... Delanie was running upfield, then had to turn around with his momentum and adjust to the ball....while Amakamura was sitting there THE WHOLE ENTIRE TIME. More often than not, the defender will win in that situation.
Watching it in slow motion makes it convenient to conclude that Walker should put more effort in "attacking the ball" but by no means does that excuse a poorly thrown pass.
No I'm just talking about that particular play, but in general I do agree.
