Youth Movement vs. Cagey Vets

Post by kevlarAK on Sat May 28, 2011 4:38 pm

I am curious as to the average age of the teams in our league. So I went through the starting 11 on both sides of the ball of the Vikes and this is what I found:

Offense
QB - Parris(R) - 24
HB - Holliday(R) - 24
FB - Tahi - 31
WR - Harvin - 24
WR - Rice - 26
TE - Smith(R) - 24
LT - McKinnie - 32
LG - Hurley(R) - 22 Out for Season
C - Sullivan - 27
RG - Davis - 24
RT - Bernadeau - 26

---------------------------------------------------------------

Defense

LE - Edwards - 27
RE - Cox(R) - 21 Out for Season[/]
DT - Sims - 27
DT - Moore(R) - 20
LOLB - Carter(R) - 24
MLB - Harris - 28
ROLB - Jones - 34
CB - Revis - 27
CB - Alipate(R) - 24 [i]Out for Season

FS - Griffen(R) - 22
SS - Johnson - 27

---------------------------------------------------------------

Average age of starters on Offense 283/11 = 25.73
Average age of starters on Defense 281/11 = 25.55
average age of starters on the team is 25.64.

On a recent SportsAnomaleagers podcast, Zach stated that I "Gave up on my season" which I would disagree with. My team is incredibly young, I felt I had to gut my team since a good portion of my vets had their contracts up and I could not afford to keep them. I am looking forward to my rookies progressing in the offseason. Especially since my rookie QB has a hard time hitting wide open receivers. That, plus the upcoming draft. I got all my data from the Madden 11 franchise app on my iPhone.

How young or old is your team?

Your 3-9 record suggests that I'm incredibly correct.

I think you're on the losing half there.

"incredibly correct" just doesn't sound right.

At the risk of derailing my own thread I will say that my record is an indication of my team's inexperience plus lack of depth and injuries. Before you respond Zach, how about offering up your teams average age?

If knowing is half the battle and adjectives are the other half, where do you fit strategy in Zach? Are you up for a game of chess? l0l

I'm not sure how to figure out the age of my rookies, haha. Seems skewed if I have a rookie with going through mid-life crisis.

Check the parking lot, if there is a '65 Mustang that doesn't belong to the owner or the coach, you might be onto something! Ha

Oh, Zack. Rolling Eyes
Pretty harsh to just charge someone with "giving up" on the season. Probably "incredibly wrong" of you.

I'll have to check out the ages of mah dudes. They are all young at heart though.

My point is, you had great players that you could have easily won with. Then you decided for some reason to trade them away for younger, worse players, and like, 7 picks in the last round of the draft. Seemed to me like you were giving up on your season.

Oh, and it looks like all the numbers you have down are a year short of what they actually are.

I did have a lot of premier talent on my team. I managed to make the playoffs the first year of our Madden 11 league. As an owner, I had to consider what I could and could not afford to spend on my team. Favre retired on me. Jared Allen asked for the moon. Peterson netted me the (arguably) premier CB in the league plus top MLB. Pat Williams was not long for this world so I dealt him. Kevin Williams had his contract up and was about to ask for a blue moon. Chad Greenway was 32 and not gettin any younger so I sent him packing.

Is there a difference between "giving up on your season" as opposed to simply rebuilding?

I stated in my initial post that I got my data from EA's Madden 11 Franchise app. If it is off, then it's off by a year. I just wanted to start a discussion on team age.

QB -Parris(R) 23

That means the average age of my offense is .090909 younger than what I stated. I guess you showed me? Could it be that you may be a worthy chess opponent after all?

Zack, quit hijacking the thread to poke at the Vikings.

That was a GREAT trade for you. I forgot you had Revis until I played you. He is a game changer through and through.

Giving up on your season would mean that you did nothing to change/refresh your team. You showed effort, even if it's moves that Zack doesn't agree with.

For the Texans, I took the averages of every player on my team. I may go through again and only do my starters.

Average age: 28.17 yrs
Youngest player: 22 yrs (Earl "Bones" Bowman, HB; Arthur Costa, FB)
Oldest players: 37 yrs (Neil Rackers, K)
Total years of wisdom: 1,493 yrs

For fun, here's more:
Average OVR: 77.04
Lowest OVR: 37 (Yamon Figurs, WR)
Highest OVR: 98 (Andre Johnson, WR)

I made some plays for young talent in the past two seasons (Titus Ridder, Brandon Hiller), but my primary focus was bringing in proven veteran talent.

So while I drafted Lenoy "The Playboy" Tucker (23 yrs), my top three receivers are Andre Johnson (32 yrs), Anquan Boldin (33 yrs), and Santonio Holmes (30 yrs, and currently injured), all receiving passes from Matt Cassel (32 yrs). My most productive, youngest guy on offense is Bones, who is only 22 years old.

On defense, my top players include DeMarcus Ware at LB (31 yrs), Nnamdi Asomugha (32 yrs), Cortland Finnegan (29 yrs), and Aspha Savage (24 yrs). Hiller and Ridder are 23 and 24, respectively.

Don't be an asshole.

Every player that isn't a rookie is a year older than you said they were. Harvin is 25, Revis is 28, etc.

I'm the A-hole here? I suppose I should have put a "/sarcasm" in one of my posts but you are the guy coming into this thread just to point out minor differences. My numbers match up with my startering 11 on both sides of the ball according to both the Madden Franchise app and from what I saw on 360. If you want to continue to beat the drum of "this player and that player" at least tell me you are getting it from the National Stip Chess Player Strategy Guide or wherever it is you get your data from. /SARCASM!

That's it. I'm locking this topic now, because Zack, you're being an asshole and pushing Kevin around. Kevin, you're not dropping the topic either.

You both derailed the thread, pissed me off, and brought shame to the league. I have a low tolerance for immaturity around here, and I'm feeling that from one or both of you.
