Two players that need more playing time.....

32 posts in this topic

For those of you who watched the game, I don't think I need to really explain myself when I say that AQ Shipley and Pat Angerer need to be playing more. Angerer made 2 or 3 really nice plays against the titan, what I liked the most was seeing him chase down Chris Johnson before he broke off for a long run, he moved pretty good for a guy who still has pain in his injured foot. I'm hoping the colts hang on to angerer, his read and recognition skills are real good. As for Shipley, I like this guy, I think he can be our next Jeff Saturday or even a guard, anyone but reitz and Olsen in there at guard. what are your thoughts on these 2 players?

Lawerence guy is another player who I think has potential

Word is angerer is still hurt and just gutting it out for the team so that's probably why his snap count is down. Honestly I love our four guy mix at MLB they all have things they do will and fill a role

I'd like to see more of Shipley, but we seemed to improve with him in there. I'm all for Angerer to get more snaps when he's healthy, but Connor played pretty well yesterday.

It is possible Shipley could be better than Samson. Cough, cough. At least in the run game.

In this D, I believe opposing O-Co-ordinators Salivate at exposing Angerer downfield in their passing game.

Shipley is clearly better at blocking that Satele. That said, my Grandma probably runs faster than he does, so don't expect him to be on time for his blocks down field on.

Albeit one time, I thought McGlynn did well when he played center as well.

Shipley played better than Satele, at least in the running game which was vital for the win.

Angerer would get more snaps but I think he is injured and is still wanting to go out and play. Which is phenomenal toughness and determination to win. Which I really like to rotation of Angerer, Connor, and Freeman.

Also Hughes should get more playing time.

I think you are correct on Angerer....not so much on Shipley.

..and like P-Tiger says...who would you sit for Pat A.?

I think because we rallied in the second half there is a thought our O-line played noticeably better,..after halftime

Watching the game a second time, I did not notice that

You kidding me Mark? Shipley has outplayed Samson by a large margin every time he has stepped in. Everytime I have noticed a run making it to the second level he is one of if not the first lineman to make a secondary block.

I agree Shipley has outplayed Satele every time he has stepped on the field.Shipley hustles his butt off and finds somebody to hit on every play. As for Pat A. would like to see him get more comfortable, but can't complain about how Conner has played at all. Conner mkes alot of plays at, or behind the line of scrimmage, Pat A. is probably better in coverage, but Conner is better against the run.

Angerer will have to have surgery again in the off season. There is still a major issue with his foot that is causing severe pain.

I still dont understand why Shipley doesnt get more love....he won the Remington Award his last year at Penn St....that mean he was the best center in the country lol, so needless to say I'd like to see him more....I'd like to see Coby Fleener much more and I'd like to see Guy more because he has the tangibles to be really good.

yes, not giving up YAC is a good thing, or would you rather they run wild after the catch, an as for your next brilliant comment(I would rather he not catch it at all) it doesn.t happen that way in big boy football. So feakin predictable.

I heard luck say on mike and mike that he looks to Wayne and Satelle for leadership. Shipley is a rookie. That is why Samson gets more playing time.

Justice is one of those guys if he's your fourth or fifth best o-lineman you are fine however for us he's our second best or third best depending on who is healthy that week.

That and if you watch the snaps out of shotgun with Shipley they are low. Again that might sound like nitpicking but when you are talking about your center and your QB spends a good amount of time in shotgun it does matter.

everybody loves the guy who is on the bench....because that guy cant blow any blocks...

..and I'd be grateful if you never mention Penn State on this board again.... :thmsup:

Angerer, I believe, is still our best linebacker when healthy. In this defense, it is setup so that Freeman/Angerer will get the most tackles Whoever is playing the position. Angerer is hurt right now, so not playing well. But when he is healthy, he is a sideline to sideline tackling machine and very intense. Not sure why his coverage is criticized because he has very good speed. He reminds me of Zack Thomas, formerly of the Dolphins.

Shipley, I believe, is the better center. More consistent, mean streak, and seems to be smart with his technique. Maybe our new Jeff Saturday?

Actually don't, have to watch streams honestly.Has he had some wiffs? Sure what linmen doesn't? But the obvious jump from "Where is our oline?" to "Oh theres the o line" was brought up after he n linkenbach came in. He isn't a world beater, but he is definitely a starter in this league.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one that thought he was beastin' on Sunday. Stuffed the run on several occasions. Looked better than Moala had been all year imo.

As for Shipley.....YES. The guy should be starting over Satele. I disagree on Reitz...he wouldn't be confused for a Pro Bowler, but he's probably our best guard. We need him back. The tandem of Conner/Freeman on run downs and Angerer/Fokou on pass downs looks pretty solid to me.

Thinking about it......Right now I think our O Line should be (considering who is injured and whos healthy) IF Justice cant go

LT-Castonzo

LG-Reitz

C-Shipley

RG-Linkenbach(I dont wish Andrew dead so Im not putting Link at RT)

RT-Mcglynn(Has RT experience)

    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      According to those draft profiles, Westerman might be the guy that's more "immediately pro ready." But when it comes to ability and potential, I see the remarks favoring Clark in a big way. Talked about having top 5 tackle ability and being a guy whos likely to be big time player in this league with some good coaching. The immediate time frame may favor Westerman, but the future favors Clark. When I read those I don't see them saying what you're saying at all!!!
    • Peyton Manning was nearly a titan in 2012
      http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000665635/article/peyton-i-was-pretty-close-to-signing-with-titans-in-12 Wow. We could have played Peyton 3 times a year (assuming he took them to the playoffs) that would have been interesting...
    • Add 2 players to the Colts- 1 on offense and 1 on defense
      What if we had to pick best 2 players over 30?   Offense - Marshal Yanda Defense - Terrell Suggs (barring injury)
    • Colts' Scouts: What they liked about LeRaven Clark....
      http://www.nfl.com/draft/2016/profiles/leraven-clark?id=2555202 http://www.nfl.com/draft/2016/profiles/christian-westerman?id=2555131   Both Draft Profiles. Anyway outside of bench press for O Linemen I could care less what the other results are. Also your right that I was not sold on Ansah (as a pass rusher) and that I thought he was raw and wasn't a 1st round prospect. He went in the 1st and balled out. I was wrong, Not the first time or last time.   I agree that in general if the organization likes a player then you take him no matter what and don't look back. I'm 100% on board with that idea. As a matter of fact I don't dislike the pick at all. I don't dislike the player. I DO however believe that we could have had a better player who I also believe will be a better player long-term as well. I have no problem with them drafting Clark...None at all since they clearly were not as high on Westerman (Even though again he is the superior prospect with the exception of arm length.). I hope Clark fulfills the potential  but at O Line I would have taken Westerman who could have immediately challenged Thornton (and played out at RT replacing Reitz in the next year or so if he showed he could not drive block well in the run game at RG.....which again was a weakness of his in college).   Don't be surprised if the Bengals give Westerman a shot at C or RT at first. They have holes at both spots so he very well could see time early. Winston is winding down his career and was bad at RT last year and Bodine was bad last year at Center though is still young and has 2 years left on his rookie contract

      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.
