Most of the team's stars are at the end -- I mean the tail end -- of their careers. Wide receiver Joe Horn (15th season), heroic little guy Warrick Dunn (13th season), Pro Bowl tight end Alge Crumpler may still has some tread (8th), the offensive line averages more than 10 years with the exception of guard Justin Blalock, MLB Keith Brooking (11th), CB Lawyer Malloy (13th), oft-injured DE John Abraham (9th). It goes on and on. On a contender, the experience and leadership that goes along with age might be a plus. But that's not the Falcons. And too many recent high draft picks, like WR Michael Jenkins, have been disappointments.
