    Pats were third oldest team last year

    Below is a list of the oldest to youngest NFL teams last year at 9/7/09. I researched this thinking we were a young team last year about to get younger. I was surprised to see we are actually one of the oldest and have been for years.

    The Colts have been among the youngest in the league for years. This data shows that age doesn't matter. The Super Bowl featured the second oldest team against the second youngest team.

    I would guess the younger teams have more cap room than a veteran laden team. This explains why the Colts can afford to give Peyton Manning the richest contract ever.

    My question is would you rather have a younger team or a veteran team?

    1 Redskins 28.02
    2 Saints 27.99
    3 Cardinals 27.74
    3 Patriots 27.74

    6 49ers 27.51
    7 Steelers 27.50

    "This data is a little skewed. Junior Seau, who I believe is 62 years old made us top heavy."

    LOL Seau joined the team mid-season so I don't think his age was factored in. I agree age doesn't matter but I think Belichick likes veterans in the mix to provide leadership and to be an example to the younger players.

    Getting younger means next to nothing unless a team can hit on their draft picks.  And right now the Pats have had more misses than hits.  Hate on the Colts all you want, but Polian proves time and time again why he's the best at player personell.  Freakin Pierre Garcon?  How Poilan find diamonds in the rough year after year is beyond me.
