Today I dusted off the authentic Bob Sanders Jersey I bought before the 2007 season. "This is the year" I told myself. "The year Bobzilla comes back healthy as can be and puts fear into Indy's opponents."
And yet again, I was ashamed to be wearing the Jersey of a guy that doesn't even play. Now I'm starting to wonder if Bob's football IQ went out the door when he, well when he didn't play for over 2 years.
If Bob would have made a play on the ball instead of the player in the first series, he would have had a pick 6. Or at LEAST an int. Instead he throws his body around like a rag doll and hurts himself for another extended period of time. Who knows how long he'll be out. All we know he wasn't able to return.
My idea? Put him second on the depth chart behind Bullitt and make him earn his way back on the roster. Would Bob have made that interception that Bullitt did today? Or would he have hit a defenseless receiver and caused a penalty?
I'm sorry Bob, but the Jersey stays off for an extended period of time, maybe forever.
