same has been said about timmons, who is about 12 years younger.

just heard an excellent interview with cowher on sirius. he says for all the vets being released (or potential release) that farrior is the least expendable and the TRUE leader of the team.

im not certain he has lost any more of a step thatn london fletcher who is the same age, led the league in tackles last season, and made his 3rd consecutive pro-bowl (after continuously getting snubbed his entire career).

theyre just asked to do different things in different systems.

james by no means is washed up.
