The "slowness" that we suffered from only in the 7th game was due to fatigue. That fatigue was cause by players having to play more minutes to make up for their injured teammates.

Tampa has been remarkably healthy all year, we did not have such luck. If our guys were going out with bad backs, muscle strains etc. then I could say yes they may have been caused due to old age, but broken hands, forearms, jaws and concussions have nothing to do with age. More a result of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
