    Also interesting that WRs are still fairly productive until age 31, but for RBs...its completely downhill after 27. And it appears that most WRs have a breakout rookie year, but a "sophomore slump" their second year.

    how much of this is b/c the players are on the verge of being replaced I wonder, or have already been replaced but not actually b/c they can no longer play. Look at a guy like Gore or Thomas Jones and you see in a rb that if they were not over used they can be very prodcutive after 27, same w/Forte, but these are guys who were never overworked early in their careers.

    Its not an absolute, these are simply averages for players league-wide.

    Wish I would have had it to 34 to tell it the stats are right or not.
