Patriots midseason superlatives
Sanders wasnt the most spectacular safety during his six seasons in New New England, but he had a deep knowledge of the defense. He was steady, and thats exactly what the Patriots need right now as the parade of Josh Barretts, James Ihedigbos and Sergio Browns struggle alongside Patrick Chung. The Brandon Meriweather release was understandable he was too undisciplined to trust. But Sanders is missed, and its puzzling why he was let go when there wasnt a suitable replacement on the roster.
