    On both sacks Morgan was getting pressure from the outside, so Clemens had to step up, not forgetting the DBs and LBs had to cover their guys.
    Getting a sack is rarely a one-man-thing.

    Casey has flashed the freaky one-man-army-getting-sack skill that we last saw with Fat Al. He just needs to be more consistent.

    T-2nd (with Geno Atkins, who won't play more this season) in the league for a DT behind Jason Hatcher. - So yeah, it's pretty good.

    Im guess he's thinking with 8 games to go if he averages 1.5 sacks a game he'll hit 19.

    We've seen him get 2 sacks in 2 different games so far, so 19 sacks is not too far out there to possibly happen.

    When he gets past 8 sacks, which he certainly will, that is the mark of an ELITE DT.

    Yea he's already proven to be in the top ranks as a DT. At least as a pass rusher.

    Unfortunate thing... A DT is our best pass rusher... That's a sure sign of a broke ass DL

    Haynesworth had 8.5 sacks his last year with us, are you saying Haynesworth wasn't elite before 2008?

    Here's a real question for fans; is Jurrell Casey the best DT we've ever had as the Titans?

    Haynesworth game was way different. He destroyed the line and collapsed the pocket. He was more of a center piece and not just a pass rusher. He created more sacks than he got.
