Scanning the Savanna

On June 2, Lions RS-WR Stefan Logan turned 30. From a strictly scientific standpoint, Logan is considered young.

From a football-playing perspective, 30 is considered … well, not young, to be charitable. But Logan isn’t concerned with that.

The 2011 version of Giants’ offensive line looks eerily similar to that of the Cowboys’ OL last season.  At just under 32 years of age on average, the Giants don’t just have the oldest offensive line in the NFL – They have the oldest offensive OL in the NFL by a wide margin, with the Lions behind them by almost 2 years, on average.

A curious thing is happening: Matthew Stafford’s stock is actually rising. The word on the street is that Stafford is having a great offseason and looks good throwing the ball. I have even started to see concerns about Stafford being overdrafted, which is really code for being dismayed that you might not be able to snag him as a high-value pick in later rounds. Some here at PFF Fantasy have been banging the drum for Stafford, to a degree, so his recent ascent comes as little surprise.
