The 15-yard penalty on Colts linebacker Erik Walden for ripping off Titans tight end Delanie Walker’s helmet and delivering a head butt was not enough to satisfy Walker. Instead, Walker thinks it should have resulted in an ejection.
“What got him riled up? I was whupping his butt, that’s what happened, and the cat couldn’t take it when he was getting whupped,’’ Walker told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean after the game. “He got frustrated, and he should have been ejected for what he did. That’s bush league and that’s the type of stuff we don’t need in this league.”
Walker was not penalized even though he responded to Walden’s head butt with a punch.
“I threw a punch at him; I’m not going to lie about that. It’s on film,’’ Walker said. “But that was just a reaction. You head butt me in the face because I am beating you? C’mon.”
Walker said Walden better be ready when the two teams meet again.
“I whupped on him the whole game, and I’m going to whup on him again in two weeks,’’ Walker said. “We are not cool. That type of stuff doesn’t belong in the NFL.”
Aside from the incident with Walden, Walker had an excellent game, catching all 10 of the passes thrown to him for 91 yards and a touchdown.
