    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.

    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

    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..........
