Default Team Captains Named

Steelers Name Four Team Captains

The Steelers selected four players today to serve as team captains for the 2010 season. One new player joins three holdovers from the 2009 season as team captains through a vote of their teammates.

Wide receiver Hines Ward was voted a team captain for the sixth consecutive year (2005-10) and will be joined by tight end and first-time offensive co-captain Heath Miller. Ward registered his club-record sixth 1,000-yard receiving season in 2009, when he also ranked eighth in the NFL with 95 receptions. Miller set a team record for tight ends with 76 catches in 2009 while earning his first trip to the Pro Bowl.

Inside linebacker James Farrior was named a captain of the Steelers’ defense for the seventh straight year (2004-10). Farrior led the Steelers with 126 tackles in 2009, his seventh consecutive season with at least 100 tackles.

Linebacker Keyaron Fox was named special teams captain for the second consecutive season. Fox led all Steelers with 27 special teams tackles (17 solo) in 2009.

Probably for the simple fact that he won't be there for 4 games. If he hadn't been suspended, I imagine he would have been a captain.

Nah, they'll keep Heath 'n' Hines at the job. No way a guy suspended for four games (unjustly, and without evidence, I might add... but I digress..) would get picked for captain as soon as he gets back. Plus, I think Heath will be amazing in this new role.

Ben not being named a captain is part of his punishment. Hines and Heath haven't had off season scandals splashed across the headlines. It's just another reminder to Ben to keep his act together.

Should have clarified. I guess my post does say "when Ben comes back". My bad. I was talking about Next year because you obviously cant have another vote for this season, done deal.
