    This should also be enlightening on expectations for contributions from rookies. Basically if you have two rookies come in and start the year (32 starts) you are going to be over the 10% limit with injuries elsewhere. Don't count on 3rd round and beyond players coming in as rookie starters and in the ensuing off-season don't be disappointed in their slow development to get on the field--that's the way it goes on most teams.

    I thought it was interesting that of the seven teams last season that crossed Kirwans 10% rookie starts, three of them were in the AFC South. The Texans, Jaguars, and Titans all were starting a pile of young players last season and really the Colts weren't particularly old either with 28 rookie starts.

    I bet we're a 3.5 to 4 by the time 2005 is done too.
