LB Anthony Walker Jr. (10.21.21)

On RB D’Ernest Johnson’s success in today’s game:

“That is what it is all about. You talk about trusting the process, ‘Slow Grind’ – his mantra – and he has done that. You stick to the script. You fight and claw your way. I think he has played in every football league there is. He is seizing his opportunity, and you cannot be happier for a guy who puts in the work every day, never complains and does whatever the team asks. He got the opportunity, went out there and seized the moment.”


On what the win says about the team with numerous injuries:

“We said it early this week and Head Coach (Kevin Stefanski) said it, but ‘Who cares?’ It is the NFL, and guys are going to get banged up. How are you going to respond? I am proud of these guys. Nobody flinched in our locker room and everybody stepped up – next man up. Guys made some huge plays out there. We are a bunch of competitive tough guys in the locker room, and I am proud to be a part of this team.”


On the defensive performance in the first half:

“We do not want to be a first half team. We want to play a complete game. We had some good moments in the first half, but we want to finish games better.”
