The game that ended Decker’s tenure in Denver was the Super Bowl.
He disappeared when the Seattle Seahawks played physical with him. Decker finished with one catch and was a non-factor. Just like he’ll be today against his former team.
Compare that to Sanders, who finished with 11 catches for 149 yards against the Seahawks.
Sanders wants the opposing team to play physical with him. He views it as a challenge. As a way to prove he’s better.
