Mr. Scot

Did Star and Short wear down?

I don't know that any fan could answer that question, but I remember hearing a NFL coach say that all rookies hit the wall.

 

Natural.  Beyond the fact that the competition is worlds tougher, they've never played through a season that lasted this long.

 

With a more exhausting job that lasts longer, it's bound to happen.  Some handle it better than others.

Even with less game snaps played, the work in the weight room is brutal. Rookies get really sore and are forced to continue lifting through the pain.

I would think the wall hit them

Actually I think they are the wall, and they hit the rookies.

Going from 12-13 college games to 16-19 nfl games is a huuuugggee difference... I'm sure they slowed down a little but idk

I thought they played pretty well for the season (up until the playoffs). So if they did hit the rookie wall, then next year, now that they have the experience, they both should be monsters.

The rotation did them a big favor, I'd love to keep our DT's in tact.

Odd question... As two rookies playing D Tackle in the NFL for the first time Im sure a long ass season wore them down.. but Im totally glad we have them. They will be 2 great DTs for years to come.

Lets make this simple.

 

Rookies wear down and hit a will because they played 4 Preseason, 16 Regular Season and 1 Post Season game. 21 total games. That's like playing two seasons in college in one year.

 

in other words. Dem playerz dun gotta adapt to da longer seasons.
