lol I must be drunk, I didn't even see the poll. If I picked one on that - or even for leader of the off it would definitely be Hines.

I think that as a whole, our entire Black and gold group will give it their all to be leaders on and off the firled.. but the biggest leader will have to be Big ben. Because as the leader of the offense, he can single handedly control how the team does. If he has an off game, then the whole team will suffer. He is really going to show up this year and give it everything he has to improve the team and its players.

Well I always like for the QB to be the leader of the team. But when Jerome was here. No question he was the leader of the Steelers. I was thinking Ben was going to be the leader of this team when Jerome retired. He very well may be. But I went with Hines Ward. Reading recently how he is taking Santonio Holmes under his wing reminded me how Jerome took Willie Parker under his wing. So thats why I voted for Hines.

But the Steelers have alot of players who can step up and fill the leadership role that Jerome left when he retired.

I feel that Big Ben has been groomed to be the new leader or has groomed himself to be that. When Miller and Holmes each were drafted the last two years, Big Ben was one of the first people to call them and welcome them to the team. He's out running and pushing everyone during the runs this training camp, despite his injuries and is constantly raising the spirits of his teammates, this year and previous years. He'll be the man in charge for a while although J-Peezy, Ward, and others are all very helpful as well.

I'd straight up say Ben if it weren't for Hines' seniority. The reigns may have been passed to Ben but I just don't see Hines all of a sudden changing who he is - a leader too.
