It's difficult not to be intrigued by the Miami Dolphins' roster when you consider their collective age.

The Dolphins, coming off an AFC East title, went into 2009 with the most rookie and first-year players on their 53-man roster. The NFL average was 9.6, but the Dolphins carried 14.

They were the sixth-youngest team in the NFL at 26.09 years (league average 26.61 years). Only two teams were less experienced than Miami's average of 3.83 seasons per player (league average 4.48 seasons).

And we;re even younger this year.

I'm all for youth and building your team through the draft, but there is such a thing as too young and inexperienced, IMO.

This is just a sign of what the Regime is doing with the team.......they are dropping the older players that they don't feel fit with their plans, and replacing them with young players......basically there have pretty much re-made the team with their guys, and the next step is for their guys to get some NFL experience.

I have no problem with what they are are doing. 3 years ago when they took over, this was one of the oldest and worst team in the NFL at 1-15. Now, this team goes into year 3 with a young, talented team that can contend for a long time with the nucleus in place.

I agree, we went from laughing stock to playoff contender.
:yay:
