      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

How bad was Frank Walker?

58 posts in this topic

I didn't start watching football intently until the 2010 season. I always hear his name brought up. How bad was he? Compared to guys like Fabian Washington or Cary Williams?

I just threw up, but missed the toilet cause I didnt get my head around in time. Instead, I grabbed it before I was in position and it totally threw off the timing.

I was flagged!

Horrible. Twice against Minnesota in 2009 he did PI on Sidney Rice and he STILL caught the ball. He was a penalty machine, and still couldn't cover a guy.
He was innept.
Edit: We also had Corey Ivy, Fox, and Fabian at times while we had this guy. Our secondary could really get ugly at times.

I always called him "P.I." since he was good for one or two a game, it seemed like. Cary Williams is an average corner, Fabian Washington had a decent season in 08 when he first got here. With Walker, if a receiver wasn't blowing by him it was because Walker got called for a P.I.

PI anytime he was thrown at. It's one thing to get beat, but to grab the WR, and he still makes the catch?!? WOW... Frank Walker might be the worst player we ever had. Worse then Boller and Dan Cody combined!!!! Be happy you never had the misfortune of seeing him play!!!

Oneil Cousins' nickname was "EZ Pass". We nicknamed Frank Walker "Pass Interference".

But, you want proof? Okay.

Also, all you need to know is Fabian Washington was rightfully ahead of him on the depth chart.

Yes.

The PI's he got wernt the subtle or debateable penalties.
They were clear, blaitent, and obvious.

Frank Walker made Washington and Ivy look like All-Pro cover corners. At least Washington was fast; Walker was slow and he was a punk. He started a lot of fights after the play and he was barely average in run support for all that he tried to be a physical player.

To be fair, He really stepped up his play in the playoffs.

Yes, his regular season play was hot garbage, but he helped us out when we were down and out with injuries. I will always respect him for that.

The Yellow Flag man himself. If yourever find yourself buying game rewind watch the 09 season. The good game to get an understanding of how bad he was was against the Vikings. He made Cary Williams look like Chris McAlister. Hold on you started watching in 10. I guess Antonio Cromartie. He was serviceable when Rex Ryan was here but atrocious after.

So bad that by saying his name, you just made our secondary worse.

Yes, its possible.

He's so bad this is actually a possibility if any of our corners read his thread. Seriously, mods, shut this one down.

He was so bad that our favorite nickname for him can't even be posted in these forums. I'd have to drop a warning on myself (even though the software would probably bleep it).

Frank was so bad that he kept a yellow flag in his back pocket to throw if the officials didn't throw theirs for pass interference .
