B. Sanders (US Presswire)
Michael Lombardi wrote on today that Colts safety Bob Sanders might never play football again. Apparently, Sanders's rehab for the shoulder and bicep issues that limited him to just two games last season has been very slow. From afar, Sanders appears to be one of the slowest healers in the NFL. In 2006, he spent seemingly the entire season on the cusp of returning from a knee injury, but in the end, he wound up only playing four games (though he was on the field in the playoffs for the Colts’ Super Bowl run).

In addition to missing 14 games in ’09, Sanders was on the shelf for 10 contests in ’08 (high ankle sprain). The one full season he has played in the last four years (15 games in 2007), he was voted NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Sanders’s diminutive size (5’8”, 206) and reckless style of play make him susceptible to injury, though many of his problems have not resulted from on-field collisions.

UPDATE: In June, Bob Sanders said he felt great. A Colts team spokesman tells the Indy Star that nothing has changed since then.

This is your logic.  You see a piece of crap.  You KNOW it's a piece of crap.  You WILLINGLY pay for this piece of crap.  Then you get mad and demand your money back because it's piece of crap.  That's the type of ignorant, backward ass thinking that's helping to destroy this country.  "Yeah, I paid for it knowing exactly what it was and I'm pissed off that I got exactly what I paid for."  Moron.

Your mother.  If you are paid to do a job and you don't do it, you should have to give the money back...moron.

Uh, yeah, he did, against the Bears.  Not only did he pick off a pass against KC in the Wild Card game, he also picked off a pass against the Bears in the Super Bowl.

JD, I feel what you're saying with the Sanders/Lott comparison, but not playing a full season and only playing 2-4 games a season is a big difference.  Bob Sanders is one of my favorite guys to watch in the NFL and I hope that this is not the end of him.

PS: While we're on the subject.  A contraction or two words with "are" as the second, does end in "e".  Such as "you're".  The correct correction to be made would have been the apostraphe between the 'u' and the 'r'.

   Ummm.. die hard Steeler fan here. I love Troy, but he has to stay healthy and play like he does for another 5-6 seasons to sniff Ronnie status. You can't even come close to comparing Sanders to Reed or Troy, they are just players that have dominated consistently for too long.
