How much would it take to convince someone your leg cramped up? Seriously does it take a college MBA to be able to legitimize a leg cramp?
I don't know about dumb, but he sure as hell didn't sell it very well.

sanders totally faked it. it was pretty obvious.

he overembellished it as if a shark took his leg and then he's back from something that severe after a sip of pedialyte and a to second rubdown?

i was embarrassed when i saw it, it was such a blatantly bad job of acting. the only thing that woulda made it more worse is if another teammate mistakenly fell down "injured" at the same time.

Steelers notebook: WR Sanders will appeal $15K fine

By Mark Kaboly
Published: Saturday, November 10, 2012



Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders was helped off the field at Paul Brown Stadium in Oct. 21, 2012. Sanders was fined $15,000this week and is now appealing the fine

Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders will appeal a $15,000 fine the NFL levied against him for faking a leg injury late in the team’s 24-17 win at Cincinnati on Oct. 21.

“We are going to appeal it, and that’s it,” Sanders said Saturday.

The team was fined $35,000 because the league says it holds franchises accountable for their employees’ conduct. The Steelers had no comment whether they plan to appeal.

Sanders said he is in talks with his agent, Jordan Woy, and the NFL Players Association on a plan to appeal.

Sanders met with NFL vice president of football operations Merton Hanks at the team’s South Side facility Nov. 2.

Sanders said he had no indication a fine was looming.

The NFL typically does not announce fines unless they are requested by a player’s name. However, the league issued a news release detailing fines against Sanders and the Steelers.

Sanders wouldn’t say whether he believed the league was trying to make an example of him and the team.

“I don’t know what they were trying to do,” he said. “That’s not for me to think about. We are going to appeal it, and we will deal with it then.”

Willie Colon backed his teammate.

“Emmanuel is a stand-up guy, and he is going to do what he needs to do, and everything is going to work out,” Colon said.

INJURY UPDATE

Receiver Antonio Brown was ruled out for Monday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs with his ankle injury. Also ruled out were Marcus Gilbert (ankle), Troy Polamalu (calf) and Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring).

Running back Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) is listed as questionable.

For the Chiefs, defensive end Glenn Dorsey (calf) and quarterback Brady Quinn (head) are out.

With Brown out, Sanders will return punts. He prepped Saturday by catching punts during practice.

“It is all about repetitions,” Sanders said. “I prepared myself to take advantage of the opportunity.”

STAYING TOGETHER

The Steelers’ offensive line led the league in a dubious category last year: most combinations (26).

That’s changed significantly through the first half of this season, and it’s showing in the line’s performance. The Steelers have had only five combinations, with most of the turnover coming at right tackle.

“When you keep that five together and everybody is healthy, the sky is the limit,” Colon said. “We know that, and by God’s grace, we have been OK.”

The same group — Colon, Max Starks, Ramon Foster, Maurkice Pouncey, Mike Adams — has played the past 132 offensive snaps together.

REDMAN LIKELY TO START

Running back Isaac Redman said he took the majority of first-team snaps during the week, which indicates he will start against the Chiefs. Jonathan Dwyer is also expected to see plenty of action.

This is actually an indirect result of the media trying to make up stories around Ben. Now, as we see in the clip below, Sanders falls, and Ben is concerned for his team mates health. He quickly realizes this is a very painful and serious quad cramp. He signals the coaches to let them know, as he's a team player.

Now, as we all know the media wants to make us all think Haley and Ben hate each other. Goodell buys into this, so when he reviews the tape of this incident, he thinks he just saw Ben point at Haley and signal him to kiss his ass. So he doesn't see the evidence that this is indeed a life threatening situation that Sanders is in. Boom, fines are levied, and everybody loses. Sanders could have been killed out there.

It was a pretty blatant fake by Sanders, but I still don't get how you fine the organization 35k.

Losing a TD, cash don't compare to Sanders' loss in 2011

November 11, 2012
By Dan Gigler / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It has been a rough few days for Emmanuel Sanders.

After a practice Thursday, he was razzed hard by his teammates for getting taken down by the punter on what should have been a touchdown a week ago in a win against the New York Giants.

"Slow Money," cornerback Keenan Lewis quipped about Sanders, a reference to the "Young Money" nickname of the Steelers wide receivers corps.

On Friday, "Slow Money" became "No Money" after being docked $15,000 by the NFL for what league officials felt was a feigned injury that allowed the Steelers to stop the clock without using a timeout in a late drive in an October victory at Cincinnati. On Saturday, Sanders said little on the matter other than he will appeal the levy.

But relative to where he was a year ago at this time, if this counts as a tough week for a third-year wide receiver -- one in which he prepares to start Monday night against Kansas City in place of an injured Antonio Brown -- he likely will take it.

He spent the second half of the 2011 season mired with injuries -- first a knee injury that cost him two games, then a foot injury that forced him out for three more.

Personally, he suffered the worst kind of loss. His mother, Stephanie, passed away suddenly Nov. 1, 2011 at 41.

"I had a lot of ups and downs and tough times with my mom passing away, and not being able to play," Sanders said. "The thing is -- it's life. Unfortunately, I thought it would never happen to me, but it did and it's a situation that -- I've got two [younger] sisters -- I had to handle."

Football became therapy as much as it was his livelihood.

"When I came to work, it exited my mind off of it," Sanders said. "I was always taught that once you cross over those lines, everything that's going on in your personal life -- forget about it and just singularly focus. This team, and playing football, helped me throughout that whole process."

His father, Joel, moved in with him in Pittsburgh not long after his mother's passing to help him cope with the loss and, as a professional cook, keep his son's training table up to snuff.

"He's like my personal chef -- he prepares meals for me, makes sure I'm eating the right stuff and keeping my weight up," Sanders said.

During training camp Sanders said he felt like a new man, no longer nagged by injuries and ready to come into his own. He has consistently produced at the third receiving spot, averaging 12.6 yards per reception over 24 catches, with his first touchdown reception coming against the Giants. He hopes to improve on those numbers starting in the No. 2 wideout position for Brown.

"He's been ready," Mike Wallace said. "He's a great player, he's always been ready -- I'm excited for him get his opportunity."

Standing out in the "Young Money" receiving corps is no small feat. Brown has exceptional hands. Wallace's speed is well-documented. For Sanders, it's being technically sound with his pass routes, something that fellow receiver Jerricho Cotchery noticed while still playing for the New York Jets, before joining Sanders as a teammate.

"When he came in as a rookie, you saw a guy who was pretty polished -- guys like that catch your eye," Cotchery said. "Everybody knew that if he was to stay healthy, he'd be a guy that would make plays and that's what he's doing right now."

Said Sanders: "I've always taken pride in perfecting route-running. In college, I used to study all the guys -- even guys that I played with. When I got here I studied Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes and Mike Wallace. I studied guys like Jerry Rice. I took pride in it and it all pays off. Once you do something so many times, it becomes part of you.

"It's attention to detail -- it's like playing golf -- you've got to be locked in and focused on every shot. So is route-running. You've got to take it one play at a time, one route at a time to be fundamentally sound.

"Nice crisp routes. It excites me when guys are like, 'that's a great route' -- I like to hear that."

Sanders showed he's a scoring threat on special teams, substituting for Brown as a punt returner last week, even if he did get caught by punter Steve Weatherford after a 63-yard fourth-quarter return.

"I got took down by a very athletic punter," he deadpanned.

Sanders will return punts again Monday but said he hasn't analyzed Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt's tackling ability.

"That, I don't know. But hopefully I can find out."

NOTES -- In addition to Sanders' fine, the Steelers also were fined $35,000 for the incident but offered no comment. ... Isaac Redman will start at running back for the second consecutive game with Jonathan Dwyer also ready to go after a quad injury kept him inactive last week. Rashard Mendenhall is listed as doubtful. Linebacker Chris Carter is questionable; safety Troy Polamalu, wide receiver Antonio Brown, tackle Marcus Gilbert and linebacker Stevenson Sylvester are out.

That a boy Goodell, keep screwing us over. We'll still be in the playoffs dispite your efforts. Go manage a chain of convenience stores, you would suck at that too.
