I really don't think there was much choice on those O-line moves. Granted, DD was planning on starting until the injury. However, I was thinking more on the defensive side of things. And I guess I should re-phrase to say "young players" and not rookies. I believe Rooney came out and criticized the coaches for that last offseason. Anyone else remember?
