I am sick of hearing Charger fans, football fans in general, media types, and just about everyone else say that the Patriots' defense is "old" and that could be their weak point today vs the Chargers. By my count, there are three guys who are over the age of 33 who are "key contributers" to the defense. Seau, Bru, and Harrison. If we stretch "old" to being 30+ years old, I guess you add AD and Vrabel to that list. However, Vrabel didn't play much early in his career with Pittsburgh as he was behind some really good LB's, and he does not have the "miles" on him that some other 32 year old LB's may. So now we have five out of, say, twenty "key" contributers (say, 20 players or so) on defense who are over the age of 30. I have it but I guess that I love watching these people grasp for straws in hope of finding some way that the Patriots will lose.
