I don’t know about you, but these opponents, against our HEALTHY starters… chump change. Definitely a year of our Lombardi.
When Frank Zombo got hurt the Packer nation let out a collective groan. Zombo was our back-up’s back-up. Now who was going to fill that spot?
Turns out, recently acquired Erik Walden would, that’s who. Walden is the 4th player to fill in right outside linebacker. A position that continually sapped at our depth chart. Erik Walden was just signed Oct. 27th, but has already made an impact in the games he’s played in.
Take the game against the Bears for example, Walden had 10 solo tackles and 2 sacks on Cutler.
Walden wants to take full advantage of the opportunity he has at Green Bay.
Expect to see great things from him this week vs the Eagles and Michael Vick.
Green Bay Packers Corner, Charles Woodson was surprised to learn he was chosen by his team mates for this honor. But the team made it clear, Woodson is a special player and has a flawless work ethic.
Tramon Williams said of Woodson:
“He’s always there on Sunday, and when it’s all said and done, that’s what really counts,” Williams said. “Obviously everyone respects a guy who comes and gives their all for the team, even when they’re hurt, and that just says a lot about a player and a person off the field, the character he has.”
Congratulations to Charles Woodson!
