Terry Bradshaw, appeared on ESPN Radio and was asked about his former team the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bradshaw said “The Steelers are old.”

He continued to go on about Troy Polamalu and James Harrison’s injuries, but also focused on the offensive line and the key injury to David DeCastro.

Polamalu, just back from injury, couldn’t put any weight on the leg as he limped off the field. Last week, when it looked like Polamalu was coming back, ESPN injury expert Stephania Bell said there was a risk of tearing the calf muscle more and making it a bigger injury, which could sideline him for multiple weeks.

Now his health is up in the air, much like the Steelers season.

Bradshaw continued, the Steelers are trying to be an elite team while rebuilding, starting with the interior lines.

As a Steeler fan, I think it's my duty to respect Bradshaw. After all the guy has 4 rings and was a huge part of the success in the 70's and bringing Pittsburgh into the elite teams in league history.

He's just been annoying though ever since he left Pittsburgh. The remarks about Ben and his overall feel towards the team just irritates me. I know he has to be unbiased being in the media, I get it but at least call it like it is and not how you see it.

The Steelers are hardly old...he must have been hanging out with Warren Sapp.

Even Merril Hoge can talk about the Steelers objectively on ESPN but still be proud to sport a black n gold tie on TV and have his terrible towel on his shoulder.

Oh come on man, Ryan Clark is like 32, Ike Taylor is 32 and Polamalu is 31. They all need replacing very soon and with the age clustered so close together, it might be all at one time.

Do you ever have anything good to say about this team?? Why the focus on age when you should be talking about how well they can play. Granted those mentioned age wise may be considered old, talent wise they are starters for just about every team in this league. Troy is definitely having issues and this could be his last or next to last, but when healthy he is a force to be reckoned with. Clark and Taylor still get the job done at a high level, and they are mixing in the younger guys into the defense. JUst because someone is younger does not make them better!!

What do you want to do, get a bus on the north side and ship them somewhere? We are rebuilding and getting some young blood in there.. Please get off the Bradshaw cool-aid!

Unlikenyou, I love and support this team no matter what. I don't give a da#$ if we finish 2-14.

If you don't have anything nice to say, maybe you ought to not say anything

Um ok, in 2 years time when they all can't be starters or are not in the league then yes we can insert RYAN MUNDY to start.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO R TO THE Y TO THE A TO THE N ITS RYAN MUNDY WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

The defense is already being transitioned to a younger group. They have a good mix of veterans and youth, including several players well under 30. The problem is that we've been injured too much. If we could field the proper starting D, we'd be a much better team.

we need a young promising safety, we don't have one. and the ones in next years draft will be out of our reach and not that strong talent wise after.

Robert Golden doesn't show promise ? He's 20 years old and on the roster not the practice squad .Id say that shows promise

Well we have the 25th oldest roster assuming this guys calculations are correct.

We also have the oldest starting defense but our starting offense is very young.

I know. I've been saying that since before this year's draft.

The issue the Steelers have isn't their age, but who is behind there older players:

Ike is 30+ but except to one game last year had is most productive season last year.
Options: Lewis, Allen, Brown: I would take Taylor over either of them
Harrison is 30+ but has the ability to impact a game like no other.
Options: Wouilds, Carter, Johnson: Wouild seams to play better on the strong side, which in the youger Woodley side. carter dosen't hold the point of attack as well as Harrison (Most LB done). haven't sean enought of Johnson for form a opion.
Da Beard is 30+ but appeartley Haywood isn'r ready to be a ful time starter.
Options: I love Da Beard, but I would like to see Haywood role expanded. Woods is a spot player
Big Snack is 30+ but McClendon should be getting more playing time, on passing downs or when team try to spread the Steelers out.
Options: McClendon, Hood, Haywood: see comments above
T.P. is 30+ and one of the best in the NFL when healthy, but health is a issue now.
Options: W. Allen, R. Mundy, and Golden. I would place R. Clark at SS and use one of the other choice at FS
Foote is 30+ but is really only 28 because of the wear and tear his body was saved from these pass few years.
Options: S.Stevenson. and B. Johnson

when age is what is keeping them off the field, its a problem. the older they get, the more likely they are to injure themselves. like with troy, a no contact injury? he's been getting hurt more and more over the past couple of years. you cant tell me his age plays no part in that. as a football player i love troy, i think he's one of the best ever. but at some point you have to make the determination that his body is worn out.

Well, as we saw this offseason, I'm certain next offseason there will also be some turnover as well. Hampton, Harrison to name (2). Steelers have one of the youngest offenses in football, and they are getting younger on defense. I would target a safety in the draft or a blue chip OLB who can play right away.

Bradshaw? Eh, just his opinion, who cares what he thinks? I don't.
