So Angerer is pretty much done for the year. Why dont they just put him on IR

We're only going into our 5th game. He could be out for three more weeks and he'd still be able to play half the season. Is freeing up a roster spot for the next couple weeks to bring in a backup for some other position worth more than Pat Angerer playing, say, 8 games?

I mean, by your logic, we should have put Bob Sanders on IR in 2006.

Pat is the Last of my Injury Concerns. Don't get me Wrong, he's a Good player & he's a Colts. But Freeman & Connor are holding the Fort down. I don't want him rushing back just because it's killing him to miss each game. I want him back 110%. Let his replacements hold the Fort down until he gets to that 110% mark.

GREAT this guy is going to turn into another Bob Sanders - great potential but never on the field. :(

can you tell me Angerer's games played/total games ratio and how many games he actually missed. I'll do it for you. this is his 3rd year(2 full seasons plus these 4 games) he has played in every game but these 4 this year so thats 32 games played/36 total games. would you call that Bob Sanders like?

It's not hard to lead a team in tackles when you tackle them 6/7 yards already down the field.

:number1:

I still don't see what other people see in Pat. He's an average AT BEST LB. He's a good guy to have as depth, but as a starter right now? No thank you. They need to keep rolling with Freeman/Conner/Fokou and once Pat gets back slide him in with Fokou on passing downs.

He's average at passing coverage. I thought his specialty was run stopper because Edds was the coverage guy at Iowa. I might be wrong, but Pat wasn't great at coverage like Gary was.

average at best? the dude would have been a pro bowler if his team wasn't so bad last year. 236 tackles, 3 forced fumbles, 5 pass defensed, 1 interception, 2 sacks in 2 years for your weakside LB(he didnt even start his rookie year until late in the season) and Mike LB. numbers never lie(for a linebacker). numbers lie for defensive backs

Half of his tackles were assists last year. As much as the defense was on the field last year he should have had inflated stats. He's a slightly more athletic Rob Morris. It is what it is.

He's also the most proven LB we have. If someone wants to take the 4 games Freeman's had and declare him better than Angerer, so be it, but he's a different level of player than Fokou and Conner. No knock against those guys, but Pat's the Pro Bowl talent out of the bunch. I still think he's better than Freeman, but Freeman is playing well right now. He should be the starter along with Angerer.

Some more numbers:

2011 rushing defense: 4.3 yards per carry allowed

2012 rushing defense: 4.7 ypc allowed

We're giving up 7 yards per game less only because teams aren't running quite as much, but they're averaging nearly half a yard per carry more than last year.

Since, for some reason, people are downplaying Pat's production because our overall run defense sucked, shouldn't they be doing the same for Freeman, Conner, and Fokou?

There is all of this speculation on Angerer, but wasn't he on the PUP? Doesn't that mean that even if he is 100% healthy, he can't come back until after week 6 which is AFTER this game???

I don't think he was on the pup but I don't know for sure.

I'm not sure what his situation was but he didn't fall under that scenario. He was going to play in the Green Bay game if he didn't have a set back during the practice week.

    • We def need it. I’m not disagreeing there. I just don’t think he’s the answer. I wholeheartedly agree it’s needed tho
    • I don't see this as such a huge loss or a draft mistake either.  The guy had a lot of potential, worthy of a 4th round flier, and probably still needs a ton of development for that to materialize.  He was beaten out by Jake Fromm (state farm) and had to transfer to start again in college.  He definitely has his limitations.     I will root for him to succeed as I do all colts but I think this team will be fine at the qb position.  He was never going to be the starter here.  
    • Its simple, IMO.  We can't play C2, C1, and C3.  The players that have the variety of high level talents and skills needed to play multiple coverages are simply not available at a reasonable price.  A D can't go switching up personnel to play the different coverages.  Most players need to stay on the field and be versatile.   Pick a scheme and play it 80% of the time.  Learn to coach it well to lessen the scheme's warts and have a persistent pass rush that helps the secondary.   I don't know who in the FO isn't seeing this.  If its Flus at the core of this, well, its been an issue for about 3 years so Ballard must be blind then.  I'm not in a position to know the priorities of such decision making so I can't say they don't know what they're looking at, but it sure is hard to see how the players fit into any type of consistent defensive scheme.   That goes for the DEs too.  Lewis is looking better, but Ben and Turay never seemed like good fits like Paye and Dayo do.
    • So you don't think you need a cover type safety in those schemes?    Cover three begs for it, and usually C2 has a good one too.  He wasn't bad in C2 he was well better than average and was improving.
