#Packers OLBs coach Kevin Greene on Erik Walden (@E_Ninety3) stepping up with Clay Matthews (@ClayMatthews52) out:
"I think Erik has always let his voice be heard. I think he feels a little bit that it’s falling on his shoulders more now than ever now that Clay’s voice is really not on the field. I think Erik feels that. I think he’s stepping up and doing some things and playing well. He’s played really, really well as of late. He sees the field than he’s ever seen before and he makes those plays. A classic example was the reverse they ran at him. The Erik Walden of old, you know, when he wasn’t really so settled in his position, he would have had the vision and he probably would have tried to chase that play action and not been a factor in that reverse. He was able to see the reverse, play the reverse, turn it back into the teeth of the defense and we made the tackle and lived to play again. That’s a classic example of him settling into his position and feeling better and increasing his vision and having presnap awareness and just being a better player."
