Started lifting weights at 15 for football, and never stopped, 40 is not old when it comes to staying in shape.


Older Guys Can Still Make Gains
University of Oklahoma researchers compared people of different ages who followed the exact same program for eight weeks. They found that guys between 35 and 50 years old built just as much muscle as those between 18 and 22 years old. DEXA (duel-energy x-ray absorptiometry) scans showed that the college-aged men gained around two pounds of muscle, while the middle-aged men put on 2.5 pounds of muscle. Moreover, strength gains in both the bench press (7 pounds for the college-aged men and 14 pounds for the middle-aged men) and leg press (55 pounds for the college-aged men and 40 pounds for the middle-aged men) were similar in both groups.

Seriously doubt a guy like Tom Brady thinks he needs any help from drugs.
Dude, he’s using PED’s

Staubach led NFL in passing yards the season he retired.

He actually finished 7th in yards that 1979 season. It was the most yards he had thrown for in his career. Dan Fouts threw for a record 4082 yards that season. The 6 seasons prior to that Staubach finished in the top 5 in passing yards each year. During his final season(final 2 seasons actually) Staubach finished number 1 in passer rating.

Ben made throws that Terry routinely missed. Terry didn't need 2 win games by himself. At times, many times, Ben did. Terry did what was needed. His best game passing was the Rams SB in 1979. Never seen him more accurate than that game. When Terry beat Dallas in the 2 sb games he relied on circus catches..50/50 balls. I don't blame him for it either. Swann Stallworth Cunningham etc. Then he could turn around and hand it 2 Rocky or Franco. Ben had good players but not on the level Terry did. I give Ben the nod..but its close. What a blessed franchise to have 2 great winners like them running the show on the field. Ben has the mentality of a killer...wants to choke you out..has 0 fear. Thats what makes him great..he's an alpha dog. Kudos to Ben.

Then you really are a truly shallow person.

When you cannot separate being a fan from being a human being, you are in trouble.
this is strictly a football related message board. You need to stop harassing me. Deal with it. Yes what he did was terrible, but thats between him God, his family etc. Unless u are Christ himself, you are no better, nor am I. Have a Blessed day. Have a cookie.

Best QB they've ever had.

This type of thing saddens me only because it means I'm getting old.

I remember him sitting in the green room at the draft miffed that he was getting snubbed.
Had an collegiate worthy HOF career with Miami - Ohio Redhawks.

Was a great qb. Not a hofer though imo. Only won 2 superbowls because of the refs.
