Joe Montana: 2 mediocre seasons in KC after 35, with a steep drop in production
Drew Bledsoe: Out of the league at age 35
Donovan McNabb: Production stopped at age 35 (last season)
Dan Marino: Never threw 24 TDs or 60% completion after age 35
The track record for previous top-notch QB's after age 35 is not good.
Tom "Lady" turns 35 this summer.
Peyton Manning is already 36
"Father Time" loses to no man. Production WILL start to fade. But when?
35 has been the line in pro sports, even earlier in pro football, where playing well after age 30 is an accomplishment.
Tom will remain in his system, with his familiar suspects around him.
Peyton will be at a disadvantage, leaving the dome in indy, and starting from scratch in a new city, playing in a outdoor stadium with less than Hall of Fame-caliber receivers.
When do these two future Hall of Famers hit "The wall" EVERY pro athlete hits, and start to begin their retirement plans?
