    The Vikings?

    Are you joking?
    The Vikes have multi-year veterans at every starting position except for QB, RB, WLB and #2 CB.
    That's hardly youthful.

    You could argue RB as well depending on how much of the split CT gets this year.

    Re: Vikings Training camp Postcard:SI.com

    Cornerback Cedric Griffin might be the most improved starter. The third-year pro struggled to finish pass plays last year in his first season as a fulltime starter. He would be in position or around the ball, but finished the year with only 14 pass breakups and no interceptions. In camp this season he looks a lot more comfortable and is making plays on the ball. That's a good thing, because with standout Antoine Winfield on the other side at cornerback, the former second-round pick is going to see a lot of footballs.
    This is fantastic. I think C Griff and McCauley are our CBs of the future.

    I would say we're a solid mix of veteran talent and youth. If you want youth look at the packers.
    And yet, last year I made a post that compared the teams with respect to roster and age and we were 1 year older than them.

    Bet if someone were to do it again we would see that we are about the same (with in 5 years or so). This year they lost Lord Favreee and we lost T-rich.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
