Veteran Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel believes his team will rebound from last year's dismal performance, but he looks at it as something that requires a substantial input from the young players. "We do have some really good young talent that needs to step up and start making more plays in order for us to win," Keisel said at an appearance in New Orleans with Los Angeles Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson as the new Head & Shoulders "Mane Man" (via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) "I'm talking about all the guys -- our young group of wideouts, our young offensive line, some young guys we have playing in the secondary. We need those guys to play 'A' ball, and, when they're out on the field, we need them to make plays in order to win. "It can't just be the old dogs, if you will; we need some splash plays by those young guys." The emphasis is definitely on youth, as many veterans may not be with the team very soon, with GM Kevin Colbert promising to overhaul the roster. "You have a year like we did, with expectations like we did, there has to be changes, it's the way the business is," Keisel said. "We'll see what happens. Obviously, I love being a Steeler, I love those guys in the locker room, but every year you lose some guys that you're brothers with. I'm sure this year will be no different. "They have a tough job. Obviously, everyone knows we need to get some guys in to help us. That's a tough thing to do. You have a draft to do it in -- they pride themselves on building the team through the draft."
