Ouch for the Colts

Quote:
Colts coach Jim Caldwell wouldn't say whether Bob Sanders will play Sunday against Jacksonville. He does expect the 2007 NFL Defensive Player of the Year to be back on the field within five weeks.

Let's hope he misses our game. Will help our chances.
Dang, that poor guy can never stay healthy. to be honest he reminds we a lot of just a better version of michael lewis though.

yea sanders is a bit smaller and more active but theyre both slight liabilities in pass coverage and theyre both good against the run.

Not overrated, just hardly ever plays. He's missed 35 out of 80 career games, but when he's played he's been great. He'll probably be ready for our game, but if he were to be out and with their lack of depth at dt that would be a good omen for our ground attack.......stopping Manning on the other hand that's another discussion for another day.

Granted he's missed a decent amount of games... But overrated?!

I'm not saying he's not a good safety but Bob Sanders is absolutely overrated. He's now become the DeAngelo Hall of safeties.

Bob Sanders is closer to Michael Lewis than he is to Ed Reed or Troy Polamalu.

Sanders is undersized, fragile, and not that great in pass coverage. And I'm not opportunistically bashing him either. I said this when he stole the DPOY from Jared Allen and Patrick Kerney.

The Colts defense will barely skip a beat with Bethea and Bullitt. They should have traded Sanders while his value was high.
