It's official: Meet Bob Sanders, the 2007 Defensive Player of the Year

Yessiree, Bob:

Some good news for WISH-TV sportslocker analyst Bob Sanders.

24-Hour News 8 has learned that the Colts safety is expected to be named the NFL Defensive Player of the year. That announcement is expected later today.

Sanders has been the main force on a Colts defense that ranks third in the league.

Bob Sanders is the only Colt to ever win this award. The defensive resurgence with this club started with Dwight Freeney in 2002. Bob's addition in 2004 added another special player to the mix. Now, Bob is the unquestioned leader and best player on this defense. While MLBer Gary Brackett is the defense's heart and soul, Demond "Bob" Sanders is the defense's skin, bones, and muscle. Give it up for Bob: The Best Defender in Pro Football!
There is no chin under Bob Sander's chin strap. It's actually another fist.
