My favourite exerpt
Silver: I'd say your 72-yard touchdown run on a reverse against the Steelers (on Nov. 5) pretty much settled that question. Did your ability to pull away on that play surprise you?
Walker: I'm not gonna lie to you: When he called the reverse, what I was thinking was, Man, I don't want to get hit. Any way I can avoid a tackle, I'm gonna do it. So that's what I tried to do, and I got all the way to the end zone.

Man, I hear ya Javon.
I don't wanna get hit either. :~ohyah!:

Yea, he says that... but he's a physical mofo. Every game, you can count on him powering out a first down on a play where most receivers would have been brought down... not to mention his nose for the endzone.
Honestly, think about our offense without him, this year. He's made the biggest plays in AT LEAST 4 games. This team could be .500 without him. Seriously.

Here is a little blib I got from somewhere.
Was there a better trade this year than the one the Broncos made for Javon Walker?
Javon Walker to the Broncos for the 37th overall pick in the draft. How do the Broncos keep getting disgruntled superstars for scraps? Remember when they got John Elway for Mark Hermann, Chris Hinton and a first round pick the Colts used for Ron Solt? Javon Walker is the comeback player of the year, no doubt, after suffering a serious knee injury while a member of the Packers. But before the injury, too much credit was given to Brett Favre for Walker's success, saying he was a receiver who thrived in the Packers' system, a player who benefited from Favre's ability to get the ball deep, but Walker was always much more than an extension of Favre's arm and he's proving that more and more every game with the Broncos. With all the inconsistencies of that offense, the one consistency lately has been the jaw-dropping play of Walker. If the Broncos get back to the Super Bowl, this will go down in NFL history as one of the all-time trade steals.

Even if we don't, it'll be one of the better steals of all-time.
Such a no-brainer, too.

If we are paying anyone 40 million over 5 years they will play nose tackle if told.
