Could either work really well for us or really awfully against us in these next few years..

When is the last time you could say that? LOL. For the last decade they've been calling us old. To our credit you go to 3 super bowls with that old team is pretty damn good. We all knew this time was coming though, out with the old and in with the new. The good thing is that there is still a good solid group of veterans who have played in multiple super bowls and have that experience in big games.

if your playing up to speed and in shape who cares how old you are...

our old guys were slowing down they are retired now. simple.

I have to admit if Ward ,Smith,and Hoke played this year it would have been a disaster i'm confident that the young guys can do the job . The Rooney's never embarrass themselves .Too me there is only 3 question marks albiet big question marks .ILB,O-LINE, AND NT

Don't forget that the old guys were getting season ending injuries left ,right and center

We have a solid crew of 30-33 year olds... Harrison and Hampton are 34

But look at the ravens they have some old wood too.

Boldin, Anquan 31
Cundiff, Billy 32
McKinnie, Bryant 32
Kemoeatu, Maake 33
Reed, Ed 33
Ayanbadejo, Brendon 35
Birk, Matt 35
Lewis, Ray 37

We still have our playmakers....Ben, Troy, Antonio Brown, Woodley, Harrison, etc....getting younger on the lines, adding speed to the backfield, and getting the younger guys in the secondary some playing time is nothing but a good thing IMO..........

I love ESPN bill polian said that the Steelers don't have the personel to improve the running game meaning the backs

Mendenhall coming back from a torn ACL

Redman still has to prove if he can take the pounding every week of being the guy

Dwyer looks like his usual out of shape self

Batch coming off a torn ACL

Rainey won't offer much in the running game

Yea I would agree there is many questions surrounding the Steelers current RB's.........

I will say Redman is not as dynamic as Mendy but he is more than serviceable especially if our line performs well this year.Dwyer wasn't out of shape last year and has vowed to change his ways so i'm sure he will also fill in nicely.With a decent O-Line any back can surpass 1,000 yrds there are many examples so i'm not concerned . We will make the playoffs in 2012 .Personally i think the Ravens are in worse shape than us at this point but it's early

average age by squad

Defensive backs----26 yrs

Offensive line-------24 yrs

Running backs------24 yrs

Specials p\k--------27 yrs

Quarterbacks-------30 yrs

Wide recievers------24yrs

Defensive line--------25 yrs

Linebackers----------25 yrs

Tight ends------------24 yrs

this is the average age of each individual unit on the 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers

I guess you missed the photos of Dwyer looking quite round coming into OTA's......He isn't known for coming into the best of shape.....Sure he is talented but really how can anybody feel confident in Dwyer being an NFL RB until he proves it on the field.....Some Steelers fans think he is the second coming of Bettis....lol

I like Redman and I'm anxious to see what he does as the starting RB but still can he hold up to the pounding every week as the starting RB........

He should'nt be in the same sentence as Bettis but he's better than any back we could have drafted in rd's 5 to 7
