Default Steelers Name Four Team Captains

Steelers Name Four Team Captains

PITTSBURGH ―The Steelers selected four players today to serve as team captains for the 2008 season. Two new players and two holdovers from the 2007 season were selected by a vote of their teammates.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was named a team captain for the first time in his five-year career, and will serve as an offensive co-captain along with wide receiver Hines Ward. Ward was voted a team captain for the fourth consecutive season after earning the honor in 2006-07.

Inside linebacker James Farrior was named the teamís defensive captain for the fifth consecutive season in his seven years with the Steelers (2004-08). He served as defensive co-captain from 2004-06.

Steelers kicker Jeff Reed was voted the teamís special teams captain for the first time in his career. Reed, now in his seventh NFL season, joined the steelers as a rookie free agent in 2002 and currently ranks third on the teamís all-time scoring list with 616 points.

and props to jeff reed too. not only did he lead the league in fg % (his only 2 misses being a 65 yarder in denver and a 40+ yarder vs miami in the slop) but it appears his cellphone pics of his stick being spread on the internet only bought him respect amongst his peers.



(nice to see the guys doing the right thing and backing ben AND hines)

Wow....I missed that pic.

Edit: Gotta love Google. "Safe search is off".

Personally, I think a ST captain should get some dirt on his shirt and get hit now and then.

I was thinking maybe Tyrone Carter and Anthony Smith would be excellent diplomats.
