Frank Walker steps up in crunch time

Ravens nickel Frank Walker was targeted often in the preseason and proved that he is mismatched when taking on speedy receivers with great change of direction skills. Yet there's a reason Walker remains on the Ravens roster -- he does match up well against physical receivers and he proved that once again with a clutch play in the end zone defending WR Legedu Naanee. Walker broke up the would be TD pass with 53 seconds remaining. That single play could prove to be the difference between the Ravens entering post season play ahead of the Chargers or hosting a playoff game v. going on the road.

Once, again, this guy has proven me wrong! He had a very good second half of last season and seems to really come up big when needed. Maybe he should replace Fabian Washington, who has trouble tackling as well as covering at times!
