    I had high hopes for him, and Reiss talked him up before and during training camp. I saw him on STs but haven't seen him take many (if any) snaps on defense.

    After Wilson and Harrison went down, Scott and Hawkins were the first guys in (although Scott started at CB, then Hobbs came in.)

    If one of those guys went down, I'm sure we'd see Sanders in one way or another.

    I think BB is still grooming Sanders, but feels Scott and Hawkins are the better option at this point:

    After that missed tackle on Walker against Denver on the sidelines, he just kept running and no one has seen him since.

    Sanders is looking more like Dexter Reid and Gus Scott than Lawyer Milloy. Too bad. Along with LB, DB is definitely a "need" position for 07.

    Me too. I saw number 36 on a couple kickoff coverages, but am surprised at his lack of playing time. And now BB signed a FA safety. I don't know what is going on.
