YOUNG AND OLD

The weekend’s NFL playoff games are a study in age-ism.  In the NFC, there’s two 40-year old QBs in Brees and Brady, plus 38-YO Aaron Rodgers.  In the AFC, the oldest remaining starting QB is…wait for it…Baker Mayfield!  Yup, it’s true, he’s 25, five months older than Patrick Mahomes.  Both Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson are 24. It’s great for the NFL, not great for the AFC, which is gonna have steady, top-flight QBs for the entire next decade.
