Boomer isn't in his prime because he's learning a new position.

That's more of a henpicking reply than a response on my posts merits.

Do you think the youth movement's almost done? Or do we still have a ways to go.

Casey Printers is in his prime? Do you think he'll be out third string?

Well, it's his prime.

He's no rookie anymore, he's of an ideal age for a QB, so I wouldn't say he's "young" exactly.

But again, that's henpicking. Anybody have something to say about the merits of the thread.

I was just trying to contribute. This must be one of the "advanced" threads. I'm still in Football Basics 101. :)

I'm sure I could make a toasted thread even worse. I doubt I'd have to try that hard.

Not really, "prime" in your words means age when in fact what it should mean is playing experience.

How would you like to be tortured? I've already tried asking you every football question I can think of. That doesn't seem to have worked.

I am an optimist but I do not see much in regards to "now" this year unless you are DV.



:hmmm:

You forgot to start the thread with a late night thread..........

I don't think age makes a difference when quality is a concern. Some players in their prime aren't as good some aging veterns or young rookies. In that regard, I hope to see more moves this year rather than waiting until next.

Because they are "youth", the quality of their play is largely TBD. And since the youth movement is intended to get younger without getting less talented... I'd say it's too early to tell at this point.

If 50+% of our young players turn out to be starters or solid backups... then we are well underway. If 75% end up being cut in 18 months, then we have a long way to go still.
