Best game by the O-line...ever

30 posts in this topic

Against one of the better D-lines in the league..Luck had time to throw which turned into a record breaking performance..didnt do so great running the ball but we were able to close out the game by pounding the rock..salute to the O-line they came up huge today!

Yeah I thought this was realy the first game the O-line performed pretty well in pass blocking. You saw what Luck could do when he didnt have guys draped all over him all day.

If we can get healthy on D this team just might pull it off and go from worst to playoffs.

And even when he did have people draped all over him he still came up with huge first down throws. The only mistake he made was when he should have been picked off

I'm just completely astounded by Luck's pocket presence. No rookie should have that type of awareness. His ability to extend plays is just wow. The o-line did pretty well today. If we can get them to play like that more often, we will be set.

I cant say I thought Miami was one of the league's better defensive lines...that was hype.

..and we didnt run for even 100 yards

...but I was happy because our line was shorthanded and make shift..

....this was a great victory and we now real are playoff contenders

At full strength and well motivated, we have a very workable O-line. Reitz played well at LG, and Justice handled Cammy Wake admirably. Best game for our O-line I have seen in a long time. Only hope Satele and Justice will be healthy for next week.

I gave a small smirk, not that Satele is bad, I just get so much of a better feeling from Shipley. He plays hard, and makes me feel like he has such a high ceiling.

Miami having one of the best D-lines in the league is not hype it is a known fact..and we were three yards short of 100 so that's good enough for me..

I don't know what happened to all those impressive third down stats the Dolphins were supposed to have. Guess they ran into a real offense, and a real quarterback for a change!

^^^^Another Quality Center

It was almost like our O looks more fluid with Shipley out there.

Reitz did pretty well too, outside one penalty and that eternal crawl for a fumble he could not recover. Thank goodness for Dwayne Allen.

This was the best game from the O-line this year... in regards of the passing game. They didn't allow much, besides a sack and a few pressures, but the pocket was there. It's even more impressive that this was against a very good D-line with pro bowlers.

Run blocking wise, it was a bit of struggle. I don't think it was the best performance from them all year, but it's up there.

The Dolphins if im not wrong has one of the best running defenses in the NFL

I was in that boat with you. Don't wish for injury to Satele but I wanted to see Shipley anchor the center spot, he just seems stronger to me.

I'm not worried about Satele, Shipley has done wonderful. Now Sowell playing for Justice has me worried even though I told his wife that he played well yesterday (they sat in front of us) and I suppose he did alright, but I'm not comfortable with him

It was one of their better games, improving each week. I'd like to see them hold the pocket a few seconds more, Luck was getting some serious heat, of which he handled with amazing skills. Looking forward to Thursday more than usual.

Miami fans are complaining that our O line just held the whole game and thats why they lost. Guess they never seen a Colts game the last few years with Freeney and Mathis getting held every play.

They need to look at 98% of Freeney action photos.....the guy is held everytime he isn't blowing past the O-Lineman.

I know right. You could make an instructional video for refs to show what holding is with just plays of Freeney rushing the QB

I agree even after Satele left they kept up good play. Just have one question. Carter is a much bigger, physical back than Ballard, he averaged 3.9 with one good gainer for 9. Ballard on the other hand averaged just 3.8 but that included the 16 yarder where the O line carried him for a first down. Just feel Carter would have been better in short yard situations. Maybe Ballard is a better pass rush defender, but Carter is 35 lbs heavier and has good speed.

Well, you sort of have to look at the bigger picture here. If you look at who they've played thus far you'd see that, besides the Texans, we're one of the best run offenses they've played yet.

Call it parity or luck of the schedule, but they're untested at best. The numbers are deceiving in my opinion.

That being said, I think we've played each game a bit better than the previous, but we're getting to the part of the schedule where we'll start meeting the veteran teams. That's when we'll really see how much we have progressed. Playoffs can still be there for us but we have to continue to play more consistsntly. i don't expect the Pats, Lions, or Texans to commit the same errors that Miami and the Titans have made the past couple of weeks.

-d.

    • Defensive expectation for Indy in 2016
      I guess Denver and Carolina had some pretty crappy offenses with a couple of crappy QBs.
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      I love our QB, I think he stays healthy, love our SPTeams with Vinny/Pat, and like our WR core with TY/Moncrief/Dorsett. Everything else is still shaky. Hopefully our Draft will solidify the O.Line, I am high on Kelly. Our Defense as a whole is shaky period but we can still win 9 or 10 games if they play just Average if Andrew stays healthy.
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      As far as depth goes and ONLY depth NOT starters   QB-D RB-C WR-D TE-C OL-D ILB-C CB-D OLB-D S-C P-A K-A   Our depth is not unlike a lot of teams, A lot of unproven players or players that really have shown they have no business seeing meaningful snaps
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      Its easy to say Clark did not go a round to high knowing we drafted him in the 3rd. For all you or I know however he very well could have went in the 4th however had the Colts not picked him up. Again however I would have waited till the 4th. I think he would have still been around in the 4th. If only drafting an O Lineman based on raw tools meant he was a good O Lineman but alas it don't and it doesn't make it a good idea to pick O Lineman based on raw tools either...Ill take intelligence and fundamentals in the 1st 3 rounds over raw tools (At least as raw as Clark). Now in the 4th or later Ill take O Lineman with raw tools but lacks the basic fundamentals (example lining up in a 3 point stance, Proper hand placement. All correctable things of course).   He wasn't who I would have drafted in the 3rd. I had him as a 4th rounder simply because he was/is so raw. He does have good raw tools to work with of course but O lineman have went later than him that have had BETTER raw tools than him. Khaled Holmes is just the first name that comes to mind who went in the 4th round. Hugh Thornton is another name. Christian Westerman went in the 5th and he has better raw tools that Clark. The truth is we don't know how many of the 32 draft boards made by NFL teams had him as a top 100 pick, Its entirely possible (even likely) that 1 team did not have him in their top 100.  Just because you did and some analysts did don't mean 32 NFL teams did   Do I dislike the pick? Not really. We could have had a better prospect than him however in the 3rd. Hell Ridgeway was a better prospect at another position that WE DID GET than Clark  was at his but fell do to conditioning and injury concerns, I had him as a 2nd rounder who had a shot to go in the 1st minus those concerns
    • Position Depth Comfort Level
      It speaks volumes that you only got down to position 5 before my initial reaction was 'oh my God'.   4 position groups where I'm generally happy - including Special Teams and a O-Line that was an apparent weak point last year and has only had a rookie center brought into the starting group. Eek!

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London 
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
