The Big Game: Age vs. Youth

Sports

Another day of Super Bowl preparations continued down in Atlanta.

As the Patriots make an appearance for the third-straight year, and 11th time total, the Rams are back for just the fourth time total.

Todd Summers gives us a more in-depth look at the drastic differences in both age and experience in the upcoming big game.

Let’s start with the Coaches: The Patriots Bill Belichick 66 years-old.

The Rams Sean McVay just 33.

Belichick, going for his sixth Super bowl title.

McVay the youngest ever to coach in the Super Bowl.

Both are great minds of the game and both ready to take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

“Obviously a lot of attention has been made of your age only 33 getting to this stage?”

“Is that right? I hadn’t hear that. I solely focus on trying to win the game against an excellent team that’s been doing it as well as anybody over the past handful years.”

“Sean as a head coach is responsible for the overall team. He’s done a great job and they are a very good team in all three phases of the game.”

And then there are the quarterbacks.

The Patriots Tom Brady, 41 years of age and maybe the greatest of all time.

And for the Rams, Jared Goff at 24 was just 7 years old when Brady won his first Super Bowl.

“My  role is to play quarterback, that is where my energy is focused. That is probably the only thing I can do well for this team.”

“Tremendous player and a guy that I have so much respect for doing it for so long but I’ll be looking forward to playing their defense, just like I’m sure he will be looking forward to playing ours.”
