A recent survey which focused on linemen over seven decades revealed the average lineman today weighs more than half again as much as his 1950 counterpart. Over that time, according to a recent news report, the average offensive and defensive lineman grew to just over 290 pounds from just above 190.

Even the story Peter Pan concerns a group of children who fly off with Peter, who has never had to grow up.
