    Don't follow your logic. The ball was all over the field yesterday. As others have noted, he was late to the party on most plays. He makes poor reads a lot. Check the Moss TD...he was lining up Welker (already covered) for a hit instead of helping out (Bethea?) against Moss.

    He is a lot like Ray-Ray...runs all over the field looking to make plays. That is fine, but it leaves your teammates exposed. I don't necessarily blame him since I don't know what Dungy asks him to do. He is not a complete player yet, but his highlight plays overwhelm that perception.

    Psst, here's a hint: The Colts run defense didn't start getting better because Bob Sanders came back from injury last year, it's because the Colts starting having their interior defensive linemen hold on every play. Go watch the tape, you'll see that they're always grabbing the interior offensive linemen around their shoulders by the jersey, and twisting them away from the play. When you see an offensive lineman's shoulder dip while he's playing inside, he's being held. But never would the oh-so-great Colts get called for it.

    That, and the fact that he is a lability in coverage.

    Watch what you say here, AquaWorkhorse4Ever. Next March when Sanders walks you will be telling us he wasn't all that good anyway, and will be repeating everything we are now pointing out to you, and lying about what you said about Sanders when he was a Colt.

    But then, I guess you can always amplify your voice so the truth cannot be heard. Seems to be the practice in Hoosierville.

    I was villified by Colt fans last week for calling Bob Sanders the most overrated player in the NFL. I explained in detail why this is absolutely true.
    Bob Sanders won my argument for me yesterday.
    As I counted he made one play, stopping Maroney in short yardage when he was unblocked, called upon to blitz between 2 defenders that were occupying players.
    Other than that, he did nothing.

    Correction: I saw several shots of him flexing and showing off his tattooed bicep.

    He's like the 21st-century Paul Orndorff.

    Sanders is, imo, the best run support safety in the league; he's one of the best blitzing safeties in the league (behind Rodney of course); but he is so easily manipulated by QBs in the passing game. He bites on more play-actions, and is influenced by more pump fakes than any MVP OF THE LEAGUE should ever be.

    Obviously I'd still love him to be a Patriot though.

    Hey, that's not fair............ I saw him flying in on a lot of plays. Of course, they were already over, but he got in there. :rolleyes:

    In his defense, it was a magnificently tattooed bicep.

    He is THE KING of hitting players when they're already down. I'm surprised as to why he doesn't get flagged more often for late hits. He did it to Moss on the 55-yarder and hurt his shoulder.

    DeOssie was talking about Sanders last night. Said Sanders was overrated and didn't deserve the praise.

    My pleasure. I'm just happy when I get a) the opportunity, and b) someone who knows what the hell I'm talking about. :D

    Trust me I got it too and loved it but I didn't want to log on just to say "that was awesome" and not contribute anywhere else because I don't have elaborate on Sanders, Sanders got exposed

    But that was the perfect reference at the perfect time. Awesome job

    Well, if you're going to talk wrestling, here's a somber note: The Fabulous Moolah just passed away at 84.

    Bob Sanders is pretty much a lock to exercise the option to void the rest of his contract after this year. Someone will pay big money for the hype.

    Sanders was rather quiet.

    Antoine Bethea is underrated, though. Not a huge S, but he tackles well, has great range and seems to always be around the play. For a small-college player in only his second season, he has quickly become a pretty good player.

    I'd like the Pats to look at him if/when he reaches FA.

    YOu mean the guy beaten on both the Moss and Stallworth long passes that set up the 4th quarter TDs?
    Nah, they can keep him.
