What Is The Colts Single-Season Record For Tackles?

32 posts in this topic

Cato june had 142 in 2006. Bracketts highest was 127 just from Googling. I'm probably missing someone else.

Some Redskin has 165 tackles..

Its a lot harder to average 10 tackles a game than it used to be because everybody throws the ball all over.

I thought Angerer had more than 137...

Oh I thought you meant Colts team record

Looking on NFL.com Jerod Mayo had 175 tackles last year which is the most 'officially' I think, it starts in 2001

Tackle stats are infamously inaccurate. Coaches just throw them around. I wouldn't look too much into it. If you replayed this season with everything going the exact same, but with 5 different coaches counting the stats, Angerer would have 5 different tackle totals

I've heard this several times.

The media guide doesn't have a listing for tackles. Some differences would be a solo tackle, primary hit, assisted hit/tackle, etc. Like others have said it is too arbitrary to count accurately. Sorta like how 10 people might say a pass was dropped, 10 might say it wasn't catchable.

Unfortunately, half of those tackles were for 11 yard loses.

i think you mean 10 yard gains. i was going to say the same thing but i have already been through this with the angerer fan club.

Well, just because the stat is not accurate, that doesn't mean he isn't playing well. Even if you ignore the tackle statistic and watch the games, Angerer has constantly been around the ball and has had a strong season

I agree with your post completely. He has had a great season for our dismal season as the team.

my problem is his tackles are 5-10 yards down field. i want my mlb making plays around the line of scrimmage. the tackle stats are the only argument people are using to say how great he is. he has been adequate and nothing more. safetys making plays down field are ok, but not a top mlb.

The problem with that has been playcalling. If the defensive coordinator calls a play that asks him to drop 10 yards each time, how can he not? If he doesn't do it, he gets benched. That's no knock on him, that's due to poor playcalling

"Stat" wise, Jeff Herrod in 1991 had 160 tackles. Bickett had a couple of 150 years. No distinction between tackles/assists in these years.

Angerer has 72 tackles, but 65 assists. 137.

Although when comparing Pat to other MLB/ILB his #'s, which everyone is impressed with, me included, really dont look very good at all.

i agree on passing plays. what i am talking about are running plays. would top dt's make a difference, yes. but people saying he is one of the best shouldn't mean he needs top dt's in front of him. watching a game, he just doesn't stand out. that's what top players do.

in comparison, brackett's career solo tackles to assist is 3-1 in the same system.

Actually, usually, LBs need some solid DTs in front of them. Ray Lewis was at his best when he had Goose in front of him. And look at him now, with Ngata in front of him. Ray is still one of the best, but he still has top DTs in front of him.

Outside of coverage I think Pat has shown to be a better MLB than Brackett. In only his 2nd year I'm sure his coverage skills will improve putting him much higher than Brackett IMO.

With all that said comparing Pats #s, while good, still don't impress compared to other MLB/ILB.

Pat Angerer has 137 tackles...in 15 games...

What the team record...?

..anybody knows?

I would guess Jeff Herrod. He used to rack up 155 to 175 every year back in the day.

Not for nothing, Angerer is tied for 6th with a bunch of other players with 8 tackles for a loss (stuffs). Interesting enough, Kavell Conner leads the league. Here's the link: http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/stats/bycategory?cat=Defense&conference=NFL&year=season_2011&sort=101&timeframe=ToDate. Overall, the Colts have received solid LB play this year, and Angerer, while he still needs to improve his game, has had a solid year and had plenty of upside. Better DT play will lead to less tackles 10+ down the field.

you are absolutely right. i still remember the monday night game against the chiefs when he was complaining about getting double teamed. that is why he isn't a truly great player in my opinion. great players still make plays when they are double and triple teamed. i saw lawrence taylors whole career, and double teams rarely slowed him down. great players make plays no matter what the conditions. look at manning against sd with a half hearted wayne and nobody else.

i never said he was bad. he's just not the great lb that many colt fan are saying. i don't think you can judge lb play with stats. does one great play make up for 10 bad ones? say a de gets 16 sacks for the year, but in his haste to get the sacks he gives up ten 5-20 yard runs to his side every game. he isn't helping the team very much because teams know they can run past him for consistent big plays..

True, but you can't expect a team full of Lawrence Taylors or Peyton Mannings. These are once in a lifetime players. I don't think it's fair to have Ray Lewis or LT standards for Pat Angerer. The dude has done a very good job this year, in my opinion.

i will say it again. i never said he hasn't done a good job. he just isn't a great or even a top lb like many have said.

Fair enough, and we agree that at this point he is not great. I think it is to early to say he is a great LB or a good LB...the one thing he isn't is bad. If he continues to progress, he could be great...in other words, he has that potential. I think his future success also rides on how effective the DTs are going forward. Even Ray Lewis struggled for a few seasons before Ngata came, and Willis receives excellent DT play. Using them as examples, not saying Angerer will ever be in their tier.

How can you judge the linebacker because his coaches ask him to drop into coverage every down? We don't play a scheme that puts the middle linebacker near the line of scrimmage. I think the way to judge him is by how well he makes plays when he has the chance to make them.

He's not the next Brian Urlacher or Zach Thomas. He's not a great tackler, he still drags down more than he knocks down. Still suspect in coverage. But he's a pretty good linebacker, especially for being in his second year.

we agree, except i don't think he will ever be great. he could be very good though. my standard for great is MUCH higher than most people's.

Numbers are very suspect, you can get an assist for being stood near and watching a tackle these days. Agree with what 21isSuperman has been saying though. Just because the numbers flatter him doesn't mean he hasn't been very good. Shame our coordinators have been very suspect (our normal OC in Peyton is out), and since Murphy took over Angerer has been looking even better.

    •   I think Dawkins would be fine with pick 46 in the 2nd round.     But with pick 15 in the 1st?!?       No!     Oh, heck no!!     He's a very strong candidate to be a very solid guard,  but pick 15?     And instead of Lamp at 15 who was still available?      No!    No!    No!    
    •   Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something here,  but what does this mean?     I'm cutting and pasting......     PFF Offensive Line Rankings- Colts Ranked 25th Overall- The most interesting bit of information from this was that they felt Castonzo had a really strong year, and that our original starting 5 were far superior to ANY combination we used when we had to account for injuries.   If that implies that our OL toward the beginning of the season graded out better than our OL the last 7 games of the season did when the C/RG/RT was Kelly, Haeg and Clark,  then I'm afraid I'm going to have to call nonsense on that viewpoint.    The OL was much better down the stretch...    and the stats including both far fewer sacks of Andrew Luck and a solid running game for Gore backs that up.   So,  what am I not understanding?     Have I misunderstood something?    Can someone throw me a bone here?   What's going on?     Clearly, I'm not understanding their meaning....    
    • I think we steal Foster at 15 if he's there. The kid was a top 5 talent and the best prospect at ILB since Kuechly just a few weeks ago. There's been a lot that's if things happen but the tape has not changed.    I think we go Reddick and maybe even Harris at 15. Conley is solid but not special. 
    •   You dont think that Haeg or Good could fix those issues?
    •   I don't doubt that all of those things are true.    But I think some NFL staffs are going to see most of those issues as very correctable.     They can be coached up.   But here's what can't be coached up.    Nearly 6'4" and 220+ pounds.    4.4 speed and about 43 inches in the vertical and nearly 11 feet in the broad jump.     And I think he did well at the various shuttles.    Those numbers are freaky.    They're likely the best at the combine.     So,  while I think most teams will likely agree with your assessment,   I think some teams (less than 8 or 25%)  will see first round physical qualities and see a late 1st round pick....   somewhere between 25-32...   Odds are he gets picked in the first half of the 2nd round...   somewhere before 50.     I just wouldn't be shocked if somehow he sneaks in to the late 1st....
