New Orleans and Indy are both 27.4, does that make it the magic age??

among the 15 oldest are 9 playoff teams, both superbowl participants and all 4 conference championship participants.
among the 6 that didn't make the playoffs, 2 of them were 9-7 and one was 8-8.

To say 'Return' is incorrect, because a year or two ago we were THE oldest team in the NFL.

Big difference, this would be a return to WINNING with vets.

We have a lot of older players with a chip on their shoulder and a lot to prove. I'm expecting great things from this group. It's so ironic that another Allen is in charge.

We had an old team in 2000-ish, but that was nothing like the "Over The Hill Gang".

Nothing wrong with experience as long as they're healthy.

Yup, and apparantly there is a possibility we might wear those George Allen jerseys with the gold pants.

I had a lot of fun with the "Over The Hill Gang". It was that group that brought a winning brand of football back to Washington that had been missing for a long, long time. They were the rallying force that revolutionized fan interest, enabling us to once again take great interest in the Redskins........httr

The average age of those teams were off the charts. You'd be hard pressed to find a player on those teams under thirty.

I like this team. Although we are old we have a good mix of young guys in there to. This team could be special.

Philly's skill position guys are VERY young. If Kolb turns out to be the real deal, their O will be excellent for 5+ years.

i find it amusing that people make a big deal about this.

the difference between the youngest team (25.9) and the redskins (28.1) is slightly more than two years. the average, middle-of-the pack age for a team is 27.2. So the Redskins are, on average, about 10-1/2 months older than the average NFL team.

who the heck cares? Ideally, ever team would have a mix of veterans and young, promising players at every position. The only position where i think having a lot of younger guys really comes in handy is running back, and thats only because running backs generally stop performing at a high level when they reach 27 or 28. At pretty much every other position, id much rather have veterans anyway.

[quote=RedskinsfaninBaltimore;698981]Yup, and apparantly there is a possibility we might wear those George Allen jerseys with the gold pants.[/quote]I always liked that look. For that matter, the throwbacks that we wore for the 70th anniversary season were very cool too.

I'd like to return to this after final cuts in Sept. We could get younger or older depending on how the cuts go.
