The Tennessee Titans took a early lead in the game but weren’t able to hold on. Both sides were getting physical in the game. One on play, Titans tight end Delanie Walker was blocking Erik Walden, and doing a good job. When Walker was letting up, Walden ripped his helmet off as the play ended.
Walker wasn’t thrilled and was clearly jawing with Walden as he confronted him, sans helmet. Then Walden head butted Walker, while wearing his helmet. Walden was flagged for the play, but Walker felt like he should’ve been ejected.
“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 didn’t shy away from the fact that he threw a punch in retaliation.
“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 isn’t letting it go either. Walker plans on giving Walden his best the next time these two teams meet.
“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.”
