I've been here before to share full interviews that I have had with Tommie Harris, Quan Cosby, and Pat Angerer. I also was here to share an article I wrote about covering my first NFL game (Colts v. Redskins). That's when I met LB, Pat Angerer. It was his first NFL start, and we talked after the game. He had 11 tackles, and one sack, and was a really nice guy. I will tell you that I was a sophomore in high school at the time, so he found it pretty confusing why I was in the locker room, but it started our conversation. Hope you remember me as I'm a high school senior and I work really hard to interview NFL players. I'm here to share a more-focused interview I did with him after this past season.

Strauss : What was it like to change your defensive coordinator mid-season?
Pat Angerer : My linebacker coach ended up taking over. It actually wasn’t too big of a transition. I think he mixed it up well. I think the main thing with him was that there were no questions. Sometimes before, I thought that we didn’t always know what to do with Larry Coyer. It was based on formation, but with Murphy, we had it all covered.
Strauss : To highlight the Colts win against Tennessee, it was one of your best performances of your young career. What do you think about looking back on it?
Angerer : It was a fun game. I think it was much-needed. It kept getting kind of tough going from week-to-week losing. Finally, I feel that all the hard work just paid off for everybody. It was pretty cool. I was pretty lucky to get some plays out there. I just think it was one of the best we played in. We played with a lot of emotion. It was just one of those good games.
