Thu, 29 Apr 2004 13:20:00 -0700

James Royer, of DetroitLions.com, reports the Detroit Lions are in the envious position of possessing youth on the entire offensive side of the ball this season. "We are going to be very young on offense," head coach Steve Mariucci said. "The two oldest guys will be Cory Schlesinger and Matt Joyce. Every one else will be 26 or younger." Mariucci believes third-year QB Joey Harrington will have to assume the leadership role on offense now that he is one of the team's veterans. "When you talk about the skill players on offense, (Joey) is the veteran now," Mariucci said. "You have Charles and Roy, Pinner and Kevin, Casey FitzSimmons — you have some players who are younger than he is. They are going to look to him for veteran leadership. He will be the coach on the field."
