    Guy played harder than his body was physically capable of handling. Too bad - the guy played the right way and kept getting injured as a result.

    It may be my anti- Hawk bias coming through, but I always thought he was a dirty player. Led with the crown of his helmet. A lot. And never got called for it.

    Very classy statement from Bob. Hope he can come back, games are more fun to watch when he is playing.

    Re: Bob sanders released

    My favorite Bob Sanders memory was in the 2002 Iowa game Hiawatha Rutland had a decent run but at the end Sanders came in and blew him up. The announcers were talking about what a monster hit and how Rutland would be best served to stay away from Sanders. The next play Rutland blasted Sanders and doubled him over on a block, breaking Sanders' ankle.

    In the NFL he just plays in a way that his body can't handle. What did he make it this year, 1 series before being injured for the season?

    Re: Bob sanders released

    He'll have plenty of teams willing to take a chance. Definitely my favorite Hawkeye currently playing.

    Re: Bob sanders released

    Bob Sanders is by far my favorite Hawkeye of all time. This guy played out of his mind at all times. You got to love guys like this.

    Re: Bob sanders released

    He's awesome when healthy. But as an owner, I couldn't justify paying him money to sit on injured reserve.

    When they released him he got hurt on the way out of the office.

    Re: Bob sanders released

    Definitely my favorite player, and now I'll have to find another NFL team to root for (never really had a legit favorite, just rooted for the Colts because of Sanders and Clark).

    I remembered reading somewhere a year or two ago that Sanders had shrunk like 2 inches since coming into the league, because all the hits had compressed his spine that much. Sounded like that's not an uncommon thing, but that Sanders was going at an alarming rate (think, that was maybe a year ago, and he's basically only played 4 years).

    He could still help a team out A LOT if he stays healthy. But I think he should give serious thought to retirement.

    It's too bad Rutland was fighting injuries all the time, he was pretty dang good at times.

    I would not mind the Cowboys taking a chance on him. If he's healthy he's a great addition, if not cut him.

    Great player when healthy. Unfortunately, the injured days far outnumbered the healthy days. I saw on Twitter that the Colts paid him $25 million over the last 5 years to basically play 9 games.
