    <img src="http://bolttalk.com/images/mccardell07.jpg" class="left" alt="Keenan McCardell" />SAN DIEGO---- Neither of these 35-year-old marvels is a household name outside of the cities in which they have played. Neither has been featured on the cover of a video game or cereal box. And, most certainly, neither has used a pylon as a putter.

    Instead, for more than a decade, all the Denver Broncos' Rod Smith and the Chargers' Keenan McCardell have done is perform consistently at the wide receiver position.

    The game Saturday between the Broncos and Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium carries no meaning in terms of playoff implications, but it is a showcase of two of the NFL's most overlooked ---- and productive ---- elder statesman.

    "We're not very flamboyant about the way we go out and do our game," said McCardell. "But at the end of the day, the numbers speak for themselves."</blockquote>
