We knew the Redskins had aged this offseason. With fewer draft choices and fewer good alternatives in free agency, that's not a surprise.

But their starters will still be younger than the famed Over the Hill Gang. Spurred by Comcast SportsNet, which determined that Washington's projected 53-man roster would have an average age of 28.5, we decided to compare it to the original "Future is Now" unit. Considering the Allen family is involved in both seasons, it's appropriate.

Our projected starting lineup has an average age of approximately 29. They'll start six players over 30 on offense (Artis Hicks, Donovan McNabb, Mike Sellers, Santana Moss, Casey Rabach and Derrick Dockery) and only four on defense (Phillip Daniels, Andre Carter, London Fletcher and Ma'ake Kemoeatu).

The original Over the Hill Gang starters in 1971 had an average age of 31. They went 9-4-1 and reached the Super Bowl a year later.
