The Tennessee Titans lost yet again yesterday, but the defensive line had one of it’s most impressive performances of the year, the highlight of which may have been the ressurgance of DT Karl Klug, who has been all but dead this year.
Klug recorded two sacks yesterday, despite having only one sack coming into the game. He was one of many terrors along the defensive line. But we hadn’t seen this in a long time. What changed?
I have no idea.
The same guy who flourished under Gray’s hands last year was drowning by the same hands this year, it seemed. I haven’t had time to go back and look at the tape, but one of the first things I can think of is that he got more opportunities yesterday than he has in possibly any of the other games this year.
His production also coincided with another odd event, one in which rookie DE Scott Solomon saw the field for nearly as many reps as DE Kamerion Wimbley. I don’t think this had anything to do with his production, but I just thought I’d throw that little jewel out there.
The Colts offensive line is a bit of a mess, but the Titans have faced similar situations this year without Klug showing up. Perhaps it was the fact that the entire offensive line was clicking. I really don’t know. Either way, I’m not complaining, I’m just wanting to know why it took so long for him to resurface. He lead the team in sacks last year, and he’s actually only a couple behind Wimbley right now, who has five.
