But I agree from what I could decipher....Bob Sanders is the Defensive MVP this year! and lights people up..."Lights out!"

I really believe that this year colts team are a much better team now that won the super bowl in 2007,, also the patriots are even a better team than they were a year ago !! so do you think that the colts can go to new england & beat them @ there home field to win the AFC championship ? I really think that the colts can get the job done @ new england as long were healthy then we can get the job done there !!

Bob Sanders does not wear a normal football helmet, he wears an Awesomeness Container. Bob's calendar goes straight from March 31st to April 2nd; no one fools Bob Sanders.
Bob never retreats, he just attacks in the opposite direction. Big Henry loves him some Bob Sanders.

The extension is well deserved. What amazes me is not only how he plays but how he inspires the entire defense and commands respect from the opposing team. You never see any trash talk back and forth.
Sanders plays the game the way it's meant to be played, unlike Rodney Harrison who is a rapidly aging cheap-shot artist.
I realize this season isn't over by a long shot, but how good will this defense be next year when Freeney, McFarland and Morris are all back and healthy? It seems like every young guy the Colts add to this defense runs and hits like crazy. If NE wins this year, they better enjoy it because their defense will be buying Medicare supplement plans by this time next year.
I swear, Junior Seau is going go into that jab-the-air-to-show-my-intensi ty routine some day and his dentures are gonna come flying out!

Colts make a good move for the future of this team by signing Sanders to a long term contract. With the regular season behind us the real Colts will play to win in the playoffs including Marvin who we have missed! Go Colts!

Bob is awesome and everyone in the country that watches football knows it. I sure hope he wins DPOY.

Darrell Reid is playing like a force, too. Wow Darrell, great game last night. You da' man!!

Go Colts!!

Totally agree! Sanders is either #1 or #2 safety in the AFC, possibly the league. As already been said 'he inspires others to play as hard as he does.' Here's hoping he stays healthy throughout his contract.
I want to see him put lights out on Moss, Walker or Brady!

- 70% of the Earth is covered by water....the rest is covered by Bob Sanders.

- Bob Sanders can win a game of Connect Four in only three moves.

- Bob Sanders invented black. In fact, he invented the entire spectrum of visible light. Except pink. Tom Brady invented pink

- When Justin Timberlake brought SexyBack, Bob Sanders was already there, and he hit Justin so hard he now goes by the name Kevin Federline.

But that was a lie created by Bob Sanders himself to lure more Bears to him.

- Bob Sanders frequently donates blood to the Red Cross.
Just never his own.

..and this one is a TRUE quote:

Bob Sanders - "I always thought that if I didn't feel it, the other person was hurting more. But I've realized over time that if I hit somebody and it hurts me, it hurts them even more."

After the contract extension, Bob is "Indy's favorite son" now. Or at the very least he is closer to it. This is worth reading:

- "To be successful in football...never let your team get old"...hope this does not apply to the Colts with the long term contracts of key (and deserving) players.

- "Speak respectfully of the past. Speak optimistically of the future." Therefore, respect Mr. Unitas and do not compare his records to Mr. Manning's records. Mr. Unitas was clear that he did not wish to be part of the 'Colts' when they moved to Indy.

Jim Sorgi Peytons backup for years look liked a rookie qb playing in his first game, how do the colts put with that.

Jim Sorgi looked like a rookie qb playing in his first game, no scratch that; he looked worst because troy smith looked way better in his first start. To think that Sorgi has been in the colts system for how many years and not only that has Peyton to learn from the entire time since he has been there, how do the colts put up with that

Ronny Respect - Johnny Unitas' widow has said that he really enjoyed watching Peyton Manning and was pulling for him to break his records. I'm sure Mr. Unitas felt that way in 1983 when the Colts moved to Indy but I'm sure over time he softened his stance.
