Default New Team Co-Captains

we all know faneca said he cant be a team captain any more because he is pouting and i agree with atlanta dan that that is almost a slap in the face of all his teammates. after all, they were the ones as brothers friends and peers, who voted and elected him to that position.

fine. now, unlike in years past, tomlin says he will appoint (not annoint) the team captains for this season, and the leaders will emerge during camp.

im 99% certain he is going to appoint ben as the offensive captain. in fact, i think hes already told ben youre my qb and this is youre team. its only natural that the franchise qb is the team leader.

but who on defense? would a team vote differ from who tomlin would appoint? im thinking aaron smith or james farrior will be the defensive captain.

I wouldn't mind seeing Casey Hampton. Hampton already went on record stating that he has been a vocal voice in the past but he was overshadowed by Joey Porter. The guy leads by example and also seems to have the attitude/personality to lead off the field.

Big Snack has my vote.

I think Ben will be named offensive captain as well......As long as Ben shows he is ready to be a team captain....On defense I think Aaron Smith,Casey Hampton and James Farrior all would make fine defensive captains....But I'm going to pick Troy......

Casey Hampton definitely deserves an honorable mention.

Older article pertaining to Casey Hampton in a leadership role......

Steelers' Hampton relishes leadership role

Quote:
"I have been a leader. I have been a vocal guy in the locker room. People didn't know it because Joey was our vocal leader. That was who you always saw out front talking," Hampton said. "Now that he's gone, I'll probably step up and talk more. I know the guys look at me as a leader."

predicting who tomlin will pick on defense is pretty tough cause there are so many good deserving players of the honor, whereas in the past its pretty easy to see why the team would elect porter and jerome. i think if it came down to a team vote hampton would be the easy choice, after all they voted him team mvp a few years back, and hes definitely a man men want to follow.

watch tomlin pick a darkhorse like james harrison.

Honestly i think its going to be Hampton, the guy is a dominating force. aaron smith is good but not captain type, and lets face it, troy speaks in his play, cause when he really speaks its like listening to mike tyson. (no offense troy, its still cool) James farrior is another good candidate. its between casey and james.

Well i was watching the celebrity golf tournament in tahoe and the interviewed jerome bettis. He said that the team will lose a valuable leader on the team but also beleives that hampton will step up and be the leader. Im gonna go with jerome in this one, and id put any amount of money on it being casey.
