chambers or javon walker?

Postby gravyfries » Wed Jul 21, 2004 12:33 pm

what do you guys think?

i know everyone says that boston being there should free chambers up, but what about the flipside, i.e. boston takes receptions away(don't forget the miami qbs suck, so there might not be that many yards/tds to go around).

also, news out of miami has the management trying to get a deal done with chambers before the season starts. does this lessen his drive? it was supposed to be a contract year.

There are a lot of question marks around Chambers, namely the effects of Boston and Feeley, but I have to take him over Walker. I'm not as high on Walker as a lot of people are, he's going too early for me. I'd rather take my chances on a later-round Driver or Ferguson. There are too many intangibles to make distinguishing these two easy, but I'd prefer Chambers.

I gotta go with Chambers here. While I think Walker will definitely be the first guy in GB they still will spread it between Driver, Fergie, and javon. In Miami at least he will get half of the Wideouts balls pretty much

Chambers. Too many weapons in Green Bay.

I think Walker would be a better option, because of the ? surrounding the Miami qb. And because of that 3rd year thing.

Obviously the situation could change, but currently Walker is the #3 receiver in GB behind Ferguson and Driver.

thanks for the feedback.

sounds like walker might not have as much upside as i've been hearing.

It's not that he doesn't have upside - it's just that his upside is only upside at this point. Chambers is more proven and managed last year with the Fiedler/Griese pile of sludge at QB last year.

Walker

Postby Bears_Fan » Wed Jul 21, 2004 2:25 pm

Chamber and Walker are both young with lots upside, but chamber has been good 2 years in row with great td numbers. ALSO, GB is a running team with ahman green and unless green gets hurt or favre is behind they won't air it out enough for Walker to have great wr #s.
