Okay maybe two if you count the fact that they were captains on the NFC East champs.
No. 10 dazzled the nation behind a lethal concoction of speed, accuracy, and an infallible will to succeed. No. 59, however, displayed his typical blue-collar work ethic that has far succeeded his undrafted status.
Griffin III symbolizes the Burgundy and Gold’s offensive style while Fletcher does the same for the defense—in age that is.
Recently, ESPN’s Mike Sando conducted a study of every team’s starters to give an average age collectively.
The Redskins average total age of the starters ranks as the fourth highest in the league. This is due to the second oldest defense skewing the numbers towards the top (or the 13th youngest offense bending it in the other direction—just depends on how you look at it.)
While the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year proved that age is just a number in the league, it doesn’t hurt to have one of the oldest teams in the league. Six of the 10 oldest teams were in the playoffs last year.
On the flipside, only four of the youngest squads were playing past Week 17 last year.
So with that being said, what are your thoughts on the ‘Skins combination of seasoned veterans on the defense and young guns on offense?
