He doesn't have to be a captain to be a leader...and we have seen that he is a natural leader on the field!

With the Steelers they have traditionally made captains out of vets who they feel have earned the right to be recognized..not the best player or the leaders of the team...its a respect for years of service type of thing.

I was wondering that myself...and if the Steelers usually choose people that have been around a while and proven themselves, is that common for other teams as well?

I'm just going on what I've heard in the past - their fellow teammates select the captains. Don't know if that is fact or not, so don't quote me on it - LOL!

Thanks HTG. If that's the case then that's kind of how I thought they did it.

I beleive that is correct. They have a team vote to choose their captains.
