Still, I believe Farrior was one of the Steelers best pickups EVER. He sure did annihilate in his prime and was the leader in the middle for our ferocious defense's all those years. He will be missed, but it's time to get younger. The youth movement has arrived and that's exciting to me.
Absolutely..... Farrior was a great leader but like you said, his prime has passed. Looks like Rooney finally realized theres no sense of holding onto the old guys!
