It does make sense, but there are still clear and evident flaws in your arguement. Those stats should not be paid much attention to, because the NFL does not run the same type of defense throughout the league. Sanders does one thing. He plays at the LOS and makes tackles. This he does very well. But, he is a one-dimensional safety where as players like Polamalu, Dawkins, and Rhodes are more hybrids, where they can cover and tackle. These guys make a bigger impact than Sanders because they do it in more phases of the game. PLayers like Sanders (and Troy P.) to an extent, need a stud safety behind them so they can roam near the LOS. If Sanders did not have bethea, he couldnt do what he does. And yea, he is overrated. He should not have won DPOY over Allen or Haynesworth. Heck, Mario WIlliams was more dominant than Sanders last year.
