I can't wait to see Suggs and Kruger getting after the Manning Bros in a few weeks. Key the highlight reel!

So, who do teams start double covering, Suggs or Kruger???

Along with having to account for number 92? Sucks to be the opposing offensive line.

Krueger is stepping up at the right time...

If he can continue to be a force on that side... it will free us up to deploy Upshaw as we see fit. Reminds me a little of how we used Adalius Thomas.

Kruger (hopefully Mcphee can come back healthy) and Suggs is starting to get in football shape.

We deploy Upshaw and our pass rush may be peaking at the right time!

im worried about our offense now, our D is playing lights out, our D will only get better now,

Now why would you be worried about the offense, we are winning are we not?? The fact that they didn't score any TD's against the Steelers #1 defense shouldn't be cause for alarm, after all they were able to score 55 points at will against the Raiders 24th ranked defense...there is nothing to be concerned about....SMH and rolling my eyes


pfffft - 60 minutes of football and we couldn't get 1 lousy TD out of our offense - WAKE UPPPPP!!!!!!!

I was almost ready to write Krug off completely but these past two games he's been solid. He still missed a bunch of big plays against pitt but the hustle was there to disrupt the play. Sizzle is finally starting to rub off on him a bit.

Kruggs is a pass rusher more then anedge setting LB. We may need to utilize him more like Pittsburgh uses Woodley and Harrison.

IDK... but I like the fact that we are developing another pass rusher to compliment Suggs...

To tell the truth a team really neds three great pass rushers... so hoping Mcphee, or Ngata or Upshaw can become that 3rd guy!

I really like Kruger .
He plays hard and fast.
When he's on, he is definitely on ... and makes a big difference in the game.

If there is one "negative' thing to say about Kruger (and I had to dig deep to find this)that is ...

in my opinion, he tends to occasionally over-persue on his way to the QB; which in turn puts him way behind the quarterback and possitions him in an awful place to make a play. But that is why there is 10 more players on the field!

Krug's given a task to do and he has been doing it well.

keep up the good work, Paul! ;-)

Paul Kruger's coming on strong! The question was would he be able to become as effective as Jared Johnson was?

Well, Kruger's bringing HIS tools to the OLB position, playing HIS game withing the Raven philosophy and he's getting into a groove! He's providing pressure, making sacks, and more importantly, setting the edge on runs better!

Glad to see him getting into a comfort zone!

I really had a problem with Paul for four years thinking he has not big enough to play his position but I must recant he is one of the best defensive lineman I have seen and getting much much better he is so good he should make the pro bowl You agree?

Kruger's progression gives us a much needed boost in our pass rush department. He should continue to progress, which should hopefully jumpstart the rest of the D.

"It's where I feel comfortable," Kruger said of his current role. "Guys are getting comfortable with the scheme and [u][i][b]coaches are kind of figuring out the personnel.[/b][/i][/u]"

^ it's about time that the "coaches" figured out their personnel. smh!

let's go Ravens!

Kruger is playing his heart out! He is playing for his future as a Raven! Now I want Joe to play like it is his contract year too, especially on the road! Come on Joe, we still believe in you!
