Walden’s Big Day Got Even Better

By Kevin Gibson

Erik Walden’s big game in Green Bay’s 10-3 victory over the Bears last Sunday helped propel the Packers to the playoffs this weekend: Following the game, Walden, who was signed off the street in October, was credited with 11 tackles and two sacks.

After reviewing game tape, the NFL credited Walden with 16 tackles — and his performance earned him NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.

If Walden manages to repeat his performance against Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday, there could be a lot of happy Cheeseheads.
