Steeler Nation, the Steelers hater is at it again. If getting proved wrong in 2011 and 2012 wasn’t enough for Warren Sapp, he is still sticking with his statement of “old and slow”. When asked on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” earlier this offseason if he still feels the same way towards the Steelers defense he responded saying this:
Old and slow? Yes, I would,” Sapp said. “Because seven of the 11 starters are 28 years or older, and that’s around the time, in this league, they go to questioning, you know, ‘Where’s his legs? Should we look for the backup?’
The question that presents itself is: does old age bring with it slow play? One can’t argue with Warren’s point that these players are old, because that is fact. The point where some people will disagree, comes with the “slow” part of his comment.
Fans and Warren Sapp could go back and forth all day on what they think of the Steelers defense, but the only way to truly end this argument is to look at the one thing that will never lie, game film. In this five-part series, I begin the Warren Sapp Files with Exhibit A, linebacker Larry Foote.
