Steelers Name 2007 Team Captains

PITTSBURGH ? The Steelers named four players today as team captains for the 2007 season. One player was selected as offensive and defensive captains, and two were selected for special teams. The players were selected by a vote of their teammates.


For the fourth consecutive season, LB James Farrior was named defensive captain. WR Hines Ward was named offensive captain for the third straight season. LB Clint Kriewaldt was named special teams co-captain for the third time in four seasons and will be joined by fellow LB James Harrison, who received the honor for the first time.

nice. here is a link to our prediction thread.

http://forums.steelersfever.com/show...=team+captains

i thought it would be ben and farrior or a. smith.

i think tomlin made a good choice and happy to see ward cool his sniping to the media a bit and act like a coach on the field that tomlin recognized.

ben and big snack are the undisputed leaders, and now weve got the captains. lets roll.

i like the pick of Harrison as a special teams captain. He will play i think in every specail teams set besides field goal block that means we will need timmons/woodley to spell him to keep him fresh

I think it's safe to say that expectations are high for silverback. I believe Harrison is an upgrade from a physical standpoint over Porter, I just hope he has been learning well. I thought Harrison looked a little over anxious in pre-season, caught overreacting on a few plays.

I anticipate big things from silverback, and that is a good choice of captains. The team chose them and I believe they all represent STEELER football, blue collar, hard nosed and physical.

So I guess Faneca made a locker room speech prior to the voting that if nominated he would not run and if elected he would not serve?

Glad to see Alan did not have to tearfully decline a captaincy due to the ongoing injustice of his contract negotiations. He presumably will have some analysis of the results as he holds court at his locker.

My bet is this voting was overseen under the "guidance" of Tomlin.

while it had always been steelers tradition for the players to nominate the captains, tomlin is on record saying he is not a big fan of tradition, and announced he would be the one to appoint the captains, not the players.

i think tomlin has an accurate guage of the team and appointed those who woulda been elected anyways.

The story claims there was a "vote" (sort of like when Saddam would be "re-elected" unanimously?)
