Let me start out by saying I do not think our new number 93 will be a pro-bowler this year. I just said that so you'd read my post. I am however, about to say something that is most likely going to make most of you laugh.
i am really excited to see Erik Walden play. Yeah sure, his contract is a bit crazy. And yeah sure, he isn't going to be racking up the sacks. But..... I have been watching a lot of his game film recently, and as a SOLB run-stopper, and dropping into coverage, I think he will be really awesome. Rotated with Werner on passing downs, obviously.
My second point is that we all know players can flourish in different environments, and I just have a teeny sneaky feeling that Walden is going to really flourish in Indy. Pags knows how to get the best out of people - on and off the field. I also think that guys in the locker room like C-Redd and Mathis will really bring him along. I can't imagine there are many guys in the GB locker-room like that (although I do love Clay).
So, that is all I have to say really. Most of you will probably think I'm some loopy British fan who has no clue (you will probably be right), but I can't wait to find out!
See ya, Colts Nation
