    From columnist David Climer …

    Titans defensive lineman Karl Klug scored his first touchdown since he was a high school running back in Caledonia, Minn.

    The score came when the Jets tried to complete a screen pass but Klug bolted into the backfield and trapped rookie quarterback Geno Smith before he could make the throw.

    “I was able to get to him and he fumbled it right into my hands, so that was nice,” Klug said. “When I tackled him, I felt the ball kind of graze my arm so I knew it was out and I scooped it up. I was kind of lucky.”

    As Klug approached, Smith tried to switch the ball from his right hand to his left and it came loose.

    “I guess I reacted trying to switch the ball and it didn’t work out,” Smith said. “I fumbled the ball. I’m extremely disappointed in the way I took care of the ball.”

    he constantly makes plays in very, very limited action.

    Don't understand why we don't play him much.

    The guy is ALWAYS around the ball.


    Honestly, increase he snaps at DT by about 15/20%. Its not like anyone outside of Casey is taking advantage of it.

    I like KLUG a lot, but the reason we are having a good year (and we are with 14 sacks so far) is the rotation. Not much drop off who ever is out there. Ropait Pitoitua for instance is freaking HUGE, the guy is 6-8 and at 298 and is a force.

    Taking snaps away from Wimbley. That has to be good.

    Oh I agree, keep all the guys fresh. Just give Klug a tad more. And Pitoitua, has been the most underrated FA we brought in. An absolute force.

    Klug definitely needs more snaps and I think he will get more snaps. I love the attitude and effort he brings to the d. Very happy for him that he got the TD yesterday!

    The Jets are a joke... I thought it was hilarious all the retards who picked them to beat us.

    I said Geno would turn it over at least three times. He did. I said we'd win 27-13... and that was being modest, apparently.

    Jets are garbage. Experts were fooled by their record. Ummm... what teams did they beat? Bucs and Bills? Oh yea... big accomplishments right there.

    They're going 4-12 at best. And yes, I still stand by my statement that the Steelers are better than them. Just wait... you'll see.
