Walker: Nine catches, 91 yards including a 19-yard touchdown
“It would probably have to be last year, the Thursday night game against the Colts. Nine catches, 90 yards, some great blocks, got headbutted. Before that even happened, I think I was playing great, that just added to the flames. It was a run play to the right, I was blocking [linebacker Erik Walden] til the whistle blew. I guess he didn’t like it, he yanked my helmet off then headbutted me in the face. That’s when I got angry and started having a great game in the run game, just real physical. I think that just really brought the fire out of me, being headbutted. We lost and I was very upset. Thursday night game, everybody watching, we played a great game and to lose it at the last minute that always hurts. If I play that way in a game, now you’ve always got to step up to that standard. This year I’ve got another opportunity to do that. With Whiz [new head coach Ken Whisenhunt] and the type of offense we’ve got here, I feel like we can have games like that all the time.”
