Looks like .36 is enough to drop a team ranking from 4-6 spots on the list presented. Punters and kickers really are an abnormality in this category. Who the hell cares if a journeyman punter named matt turk is 44 or 45 years old? I'd prefer instead the average age of defensive and offensive starters as a more accurate scale. If you truly want to focus on the "core" of a team that's how you'd rank them.

Yes I realize turk is no longer our punter but he's an extreme example...he's goddamned father time.
