hops turned brown as they were drying - discard them?

We had a really mild winter in Colorado and my cascade hops matured early and some of them turned brown either on the vine, or as they were drying.
Should I pick these brown hops out and discard them?
I've googled around, and most people seem to say just use them, but some people say throw away the oxidized and brown hops....
What do you guys think?

Pictures below... you can see that the brown hops still have lots of lupulin glands that are dark yellow and look fine to me.
