Delanie Walker Begins Meaningless War of Words With Erik Walden

In the most recent chapter of NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football, the Tennessee Titans blew a huge lead to — guess who — Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. The Titans were up big on the Colts in the first half, but Luck and company erased a 14-point deficit to come back and win 30-27 in the end.

The most entertaining part of this thriller wasn’t even the comeback itself. The highlight of the night was when Colts linebacker Erik Walden and Titans tight end Delanie Walker got into a bit of a tussle, leading to Walden ripping off Walker’s helmet and head-butting the tight end.

While Walden is waiting to hear from the league on this matter, that likely will end in a hefty fine and/or suspension, Walker is busy explaining why he thought the linebacker did such a stupid thing.

“What got him riled up? I was whooping his butt, that’s what happened, and the cat couldn’t take it when he was getting whooped,” Walker said, according to The Tennessean. “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.”

But wait, there’s more.

“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 … I whooped on him the whole game, and I’m going to whoop on him again in two weeks.”

Alright, I admit, I found this a bit hilarious and somewhat true to be honest. But, about the part of “whooping on him again in two weeks?” Who cares? The Colts could very well be a Super Bowl contender and, well, your Titans are not — to put it nicely.
