"Old and slow" rant.....

I just can't take it anymore.....

I just got done reading the 10 billionth article that has referenced how Warren Sapp labeled the Steelers "old and slow". This has been said and written so many times this offseason that it's driving me nuts. My main issue with this is that he is somehow being given some kind of credit for calling the Steelers out. But let's have a little history lesson.....

After game 1 of the 2011 season, Sapp said of the Steelers defense "they're old and slow....and it's over". All they did the rest of that year was finish 12-4 with the #1 defense. The following year, they finished 8-8 with the #1 defense with Ben getting hurt. We all know the wheels came off last year but how in the world is this buffoon getting credit for saying something that was blatantly wrong? I'm gonna go ahead and call the Seahawks D old and slow right now and 3 years down the road maybe I'll look like a genius.

And while were on the topic....why is it such groundbreaking news that the Steelers are getting younger? This just in....players do get older and need to be replaced in the NFL. On every team.....all the time.

Ok, I'm done. Thanks for listening.
