Thanks to medical advances, athletes nowadays are able to play at a higher level for a longer period of time.
The following is a list of 10 of the most memorable seasons/performances by the "old guys."
It is difficult to put a list like this in any kind of order, so this is just 10 of the best performances overall.
It is with great remorse to say that the great Morten Anderson (kicker for the Saints, Falcons, Giants, Chiefs and Vikings), who kicked in the NFL until the age of 48 and holds the record for most field goals and most points, did not make the list.
Sorry Morten Anderson fans.
