Bob Sanders was one of the best safeties in the NFL during his prime playing days, serving as one of the true defensive stoppers on those mid-2000's Colts teams that always seemed to lack a dominant defense.

Injuries were also always a problem for Sanders, who played just 50 games in his eight-year career. One of those injuries came shortly before a "This is SportsCenter" commercial he starred in was set to air, so that ended up going on the shelf. This week, it was finally released.

Playing off Sanders' knack for reading plays and predicting where offenses were going, the commercial was perfect. The series of "This is SportsCenter" commercials gave us some real gems, and Colts fans would have loved this one.

Getting a chance to finally see this commercial is a ton of fun, and also a nice reminder of just how good Sanders was when healthy.
