Default The best leaders in the AFC

Every team in the NFL, even the ones at the bottom, has great leaders. In fact, it was impossible to identify just one leader on each team. After talking to players around the league, team personnel and reporters who regularly cover the teams, I narrowed it down to the two or three leaders on each of the 32 NFL teams.

Also, in addition to identifying the leaders on each team, I found one "glue" player. The glue guy might not be the most vocal or visible leader on the team. But he's the player who holds everything together. People outside the organization might not always recognize it, but the guys in the locker room know how important he is.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS

The Leaders
Hines Ward: Heart and soul, he's the emotional leader of Pittsburgh's offense.
James Farrior: Inside linebacker has the ear of all his teammates. Leads with words and actions.
The Glue
Alan Faneca: Quiet leader of one of league's best offensive lines. One of game's best guards.

In addition to those Steelers mentioned above, I'd have to add Ben and Peezy as team leaders, as well. I see Ben encouraging his teammates both on the field and the sidelienes and he's obviously a locker room leader, as well. You can just feel the respect the team has for this young man.

Peezy is more the emotionally vocal type of leader - he's also known as a huge lockeroom influence.

Peyton Manning: Commitment, work ethic set the tone for entire locker room. No one works harder. (And no one is a bigger finger-pointer - it's more manly to point a finger than to cry in public).

Ray Lewis: Temporarily lost the team last year and in the offseason but has mended the fences and regained his status as Ravens' go-to guy. I think I'm going to heave. If you need a new Ginsu, Ray's your man. Does the Ray Ray rump kissing never end?

Keenan McCardell: Veteran wide receiver is source of wisdom for young players. Offers advice and leads by example. Encourages a "why-not-us?" attitude. They're kidding right? I hope he doesn't offer his delusional "wisdom" of imagining that opposing team players are calling and threatening him. Putz.

Drew Bledsoe: Veteran quarterback won't hesitate to get in a teammate's face (just ask Keyshawn Johnson). Bwa ha ha!!! TO - are you listening?

Re: the Cardinals - I'd definitely have to add Kurt Warner to that list.

A veteren WR with Superbowl experience does help out our young players. If you watched any of the 6 Days to Sundays with the Chargers, he always helps the younger players. He is a great mentor for Jackson and Parker. And I don't know about the calling and threating him, guess I missed something.
