    In a related story, it's been discovered that the sun is hot.
    The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

        big blow to both teams still, however
        The Colts are used to playing without him and have a starter-quality backup, otherwise I agree with you.


        When being a fanboi goes too far.

          That starting caliber backup helped contribute to the Arian Foster show. The big joke here is the Colts always relying on Sanders to be their big run stuffer...as a safety....and oft-injured safety at that.

            I believe this is the same injury he suffered in week 4 or 5 last year, apparently that was the other arm. He was on IR almost instantly, so maybe they're thinking he can be back by January with an extra month before playoffs.

            He's signed through '12, and I have a feeling he'll have to restructure or be released. Bullet's contract is up after this year, and has potential to demand 2nd-3rd tier safety money. I just can't see the logic of letting Bullet go, for half the price of Sanders. Keeping both and sinking that much money into the safety position doesn't seem viable either.

            Really giving him this contract in the first place was not wise, given his injury history at the time.

                  His body is not as tough as his mind is.
                  He plays like a 300-pound warrior, but he's a 5-7, 200 pound little guy.
                  I feel bad for him, but he's too tough for his own good.
                  Today's NFL is so damn violent.

                  The Eagles & Packers each lost 2 guys for the season in that game, plus 2 Eagles got their heads knocked out and are concussed, probably will miss some more time.

                  And that was on natural grass, not concrete turf.

                    Jeez I can't believe injured again. I had high hopes for Sanders this year, actually thought maybe he could stay healthy (foolish me).

                        Death, taxes.....and Bob Sanders seriously injured. Such a shame.
                        Injury bug hit him early this season.. Last season wasn't it game 6? Hmm, should have got his injury bug shot over the summer.

                          The guy has missed more games than he's played. That says it all.

                              That's mostly what I was getting at when I said they always make the mistake of relying on him to be their run stopper. They traditionally go undersized for speed in their front 7 and when they get a tough runner, they move Sanders up to stop him. Take Sanders out, that stops working, and you end up with a guy running for 200+ on them.

                              If, at any point over the past several years, they drafted a legit 4-3 NT type or more of a thumper at LB, it would have helped with this considerably.

                                True, there was also no one to stop Vonta Leach.
