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.

LOL I guess they looked away during their offensive possessions.

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.

    • Haeg went in the 5th 155th player picked. Our pick I liked least was Morrison in the 4th making him the 125th player taken. I saw him go undrafted in some mocks. NFL.com had him a 7th - proirity FA. I was surprised.   There were a lot of options on the board at 125 I do recall that. Judon was one of them Ravens took him 21 players later the 146th player picked.  I was hoping for D. Hall CB or Robinson CB LSU I liked Judon and RB Dixon there as well.  
    • That doesn't really conflict with what I saw.  I am not quite as optimistic overall because we really need to win early as our second half of the schedule is brutal so it's critical to be at least 6-2 the first half if we have sights on a great season, though reading this I just saw the Mewhort isn't gone for season? That's big big news and really changes a lot once he's back.  Of course it seems usually when the Colts say 2-4 weeks, it turns out to be 6-8 weeks, but let's hope for once their optimism is true.     I think Castonzo is a serious problem.  Not sure how you fix him as you'd think it is a mental problem rather than health because it has carried over across last season until now.  Philbin has his work cut out.  
    • We need to take a page out of the Patriots notebook.  Their line was very average last year, yet the offense put up great numbers.  If your offensive line has trouble pass blocking and can't run block, you need to turn the short passing game into your running game.  Short, quick drops and dump it off or throw darts on quick slants.  Patriots kill teams doing that.  We did beat the Broncos with less talent on offensive line last year so I'm still hopeful Chud will game plan better against good defensive teams like the Eagles during the regular season.
    • Still don't know how Walden is still on the team, not even a pay cut.
    • I'm with Kaepernick. Sorry to all who may be offended. I'll spare you the diatribe except to say that we have (and have always had) a serious problem with our criminal justice system and it's a national disgrace. Nothing Kaepernick will ever do can disparage our union nearly as much as crime and punishment statistics do.

    • Hello Colts Nation   I am a long time reader of this forum but never really participated in comments but hope to join in this season.   Been a Colts fan since the 'move' when i lived in Carmel.  Actually liked the Colts before that when i was younger but it was the uniform that appealed to me.    I am wondering how do I start a topic in a forum?  Do I have to have so many replies before approved?  I tried to find the rules topic on this but no luck.   Thanks   Edit: I finally found the section on the rules to posting.  :-)
