Nick Scurfield, over at houstontexans.com, pointed out the other day that should Matt Stover and John Carney remain unsigned, Texans punter Matt Turk will be the new king of the geriatrics:â†µ
â€œI hear it, but itâ€™s all in good fun,â€ Turk said. â€œI think Iâ€™m still young at heart. You have to have that young mentality to play this game and you have to keep it fun or it will get old really fast, especially if youâ€™ve done it for as long as Iâ€™ve done it. I still try to go out and have fun and mess around with the guys. I rib them right back. When I get the old man jokes, I usually will find something to rip on somebody else.â€â†µ
Of course, when Feagles retired, it ended the Tecmo Super Bowl era. When Turk retires, it will end the much less prestigious “unnamed punters in Madden during the pre-licensing days” era.
