Sanders the difference in San Diego?

I'll tell you why San Diego signed Bob Sanders: Because the Chargers don't have a difference maker on defense and because he was available.

Sanders not only is a difference maker when he's healthy; he can make such an impact that he was named the league's 2007 Defensive Player of the Year. But that was then and this is now, and now Sanders has nine games of regular-season experience in the past three seasons --  which tells you he's almost never healthy.

So why sign him? Because there's virtually nothing to lose for the Bolts. By adding him with a one-year deal they're hedging their bets, taking a chance that maybe, just maybe, the guy can give them enough games to make a difference in 2011. Me? I don't buy it. I think his body is so beaten up that you gain little from him anymore.

But why not take the chance? There's little or no downside. The Chargers may have had the top-ranked defense in the league last year, but it was short on big plays when it needed them -- and Sanders is ... was ... a big-play defender. San Diego hasn't had a difference maker in years. Now it might.

I'm just glad that Sanders didn't sign with the Jets because all we'd be hearing about is how they now had THE best secondary in the HISTORY of football and how Rex Ryan would produce some kind of magical snack to cure all of Bob's ills.Wink
