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)

    • Became diehard lifelong Colts fan in 2004 when Manning and the Colts put up galactic numbers and torched opponents in the regular season.  It was the first year that NFL games were available on TV in Hungary, my small country oversees. Unfortunately it was also a time when Brady and Belichik ruled the playoffs so I still have to face a lot of arrogant Pats fans over here with jerseys in the wrong blue color.  Nevertheless, just to give you an idea: soccer being the most popular sport in Hungary, the championship game of our tiny american football league draws a larger crowd than the total of the 8 soccer games in a regular game day of our national league.  I couldn't make it to London this weekend, my heart broke, feel devestated. Been reading this forum and other Colts blogs for many years and somehow the time has come to become more active in posting. One last thing I wanted to tell you. Part of it me becoming so fond of the Colts were you guys. The optimism, the supportive attitude and the patience toward the team, it was clearly perceptible not only in the Colts organization since the Dungy years but also in its fandom. I always though that these traits clearly distinguish the Colts fans from those of all other 31 teams and honestly from anything we used to see here in Europe where the popular soccer teams change their coaches every other year. I recognize the tone has become more unpatient around here recently also, I mean these complaint threads dedicated to Pags and Grigs pinned on the forum... but maybe it's a good thing to contain our sudden emotions and reactions. However I promise I'll try to keep my cool even in difficult times, rather put away my anger by means of humor and irony so that our message boards remain indeed smarter and more sensible than those of any other team. Can't wait to chat with you guys on this forum and Go Colts in the Wembley!
    • Tankersly I think has a first round grade from Kiper and perhaps McShay....     So, I would't be confident that he'd last to our pick in the 3rd round....   Also,  the problem with those 3 picks is that there's no running back.     I'd hate to wait until the 4th round to take a RB.      This is a great class of backs,  I'd prefer to take one of them on Day 2......   Oh,  and I think there's little chance that Freeman lasts until our pick in the 3rd round.       Believe he'll be gone before the end of R2.      
    • I respect what you're trying to do with the mock and plug holes and of those that I have knowledge on, I don't dislike any of your picks.   Although, I would be very hesitant to give away 2 2nd round picks just to get a higher 2nd round pick. Too many holes to fill and ageing vets to replace to start trading away high picks.
    • Figures, Heath Evans probably has the Jags beating us by 30. I will stick with 27-20. I predicted the Jags would be a .500 team this season and were overrated but they always play us good for some reason even when they are bad. I say we win by 7.
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
