Andrew Perloff is a writer for SI.com. He has an article where he names an all Jumped-the-Shark Team (great players who played way past their primes). Jerry Rice's signing with Denver was the motivation for such an article, I'm sure. Anyway, he had this little comment from Paul Zimmerman about Junior Seau:

"LB: Bill Romanowski, Oakland Raiders, 2002-03 -- Doesn't exactly fit, because he bounced around during his career, but his last years in Oakland were disastrous enough for him to make the list. His multiple on-field altercations, brutal beating of teammate Marcus Williams and reports of involvement with steroids will overshadow his two Pro Bowl appearances and four championship rings. Miami's Junior Seau was my original pick for this spot because he was a much better player than Romo. But SI.com's Paul Zimmerman had Seau charted as one of the most productive LBs in the league over the last couple of years, so, as always, I deferred to the good doctor."


Here is the link for the entire article:

Comment:
Interesting that even though Seau is older, he is getting the job done. Also, he is the type of large LB that Saban prefers. Perhaps we'll have him for a couple more years.

If we don't get Zack, Seau, Taylor, Madison a ring, I will seriously feel for those guys like no other group.

Seau was playing really well in 2004. Better than he did in 2003. Sucked that he got hurt. But if there was a year to be hurt, it was last year, as we got to see the rookies.
