Last year, Warren Sapp made called the Pittsburgh Steelers defense “old and slow,” and they ended up missing the playoffs. Sapp was asked on the NFL if they’re still old and slow. “Old and slow? Yes, I would,” Sapp said on the NFL Network, via NFL.com. “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?’ “And Brett Keisel, bless his soul, No. 99 in your program, No. 1 in your heart, he turns 35 the first month of the year. And three of the four secondary guys there are 32 years old or older.” We already know by now that Sapp has a big mouth and can’t control what he says.  While the Steelers may have missed the playoffs last season, they still had the number one ranked defense in the NFL and have continued to reload this season after letting veterans like Casey Hampton and James Harrison move on.

  • Warren Sapp is equivalent to: Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson, and Allen Iverson. He's just mad because he is "old and slow"
  • At least their not fat and mentally slow. You think they laugh with you on that show? Think again.
