    I know on your horse shoe football board it's 'cool' to sniff Peyton jock strap and get orgasms from being choked by Marvin but here, there is something you lemmings clearly don't get it....it's ok to have a different opinion.

    If everyone here agreed with everyone else it would be well....Colts Freaks. And all we'd do is just call opposing fans 'fag'.

    No he is not. He is a good player who benefits from playing with sanders. Great 5th rd pick though..

    An interesting comparison from here on our would be grffin vs michael huff his former texas teamate who was the 6th pick in the 06 draft. Huff has been solid but couldn't beat out bethea or 36 year old john lynch as an afc alternate to the pro bowl.

    Note the longevity of safeties. Lynch 36, sharper at age 32 was the nfl starting SS. Brian dawkins made the 07 pro bowl at 32. Because safeties have good longevity and because they usually get on the field right away as rookies there is great value in drafting them. How the best safety in this draft made it to pick 32 is beyond me. Now the giants will be even better on defense.

    Antoine Bethea >> Bob Sanders. Sanders is asked to do basically one thing, and that is play near the LOS and make tackles. He does that perfectly. The thing is, though, he cant cover for his life. He is easily and clearly the worst coverage guy in their entire secondary. Bethea allows Sanders to do what he does. Bethea drops back every play and is very solid in coverage. He is a good tackler, too, and is useful in run support. Anyone who says that Bob Sanders is the best in the league either 1. doesnt watch football or 2. Has never heard of Kerry Rhodes, Adrian Wilson, Ed Reed, etc.

    Sorry, its the other way around. Sanders benefits from playing with Bethea. Antoine does so much more in that defense, while Sanders just plays near the LOS and makes tackles. Have you ever seen Bob Sanders make a legit INT? It doesnt happen.

    well, he's only had 4 career INTs so you don't have many to pick from.
