Sapp calls Steelers 'old and slow'

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Warren Sapp, now an NFL analyst, had some not too-kind things to say about the Pittsburgh Steelers after their 35-7 mashing last Sunday at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens.

According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Sapp said on Showtime's "Inside the NFL" that the Steelers are "old, slow and it's over."

He went on to say that his 13-year-old daughter would be able to cover Steelers receiver Hines Ward "in a heartbeat."

Sapp also had criticism for safety Troy Polamalu, the NFL's Defensive Player of the year from last season, saying the Steelers star could not get close enough to make a play on Ravens tight end Ed Dickson.

The Steelers, who have eight defensive starters age 30 or older, didn't seem to put too much stock in Sapp's yaps.

"Once you get a certain age, you get labeled as old," defensive back Ike Taylor said. "That's understandable."
