San Diego Chargers strong safety Bob Sanders joined "The World of Sports" on XTRA 1360 this week.  Here are some of the quotes from the interview. 

How much change do you need to make going from the Indianapolis Colts to the San Diego Chargers?

I've been in the league seven years now and it's tough going from a different team, but really everything, a lot of it is the same.  You know the terminology is different, you know the way we move around is a little bit different.  It's just getting back to doing the little details and making sure I'm sharp in my alignments and my assignments.  It's still football, but it is tough being away from it so long.

How different are the two organizations?

A lot of the things are similar, some little things here and there may be a little different but, you gotta expect that.  You gotta expect things not to be the same.  You've got different personalities, you've got the way things are handled by the team, you know the leaders of the team, the captains, those things so, there are some similarities, but there are differences and you've got to be able to adjust. 

When did you discover you were going to be a hard hitter?

It probably started when I started playing little league, when I was about 12 years old. 

About the Chargers being a finesse team

Being here now, I know firsthand we are not a finesse team, that we are physical and that we are going to be physical.
