I hope it's not too soon to start a Team Captains thread. Just curious to read your views on the matter. Also, it'd be nice to check in with our thoughts throughout this pre-season. Projections/Observations/Hopes/Nominations? Our Captains are currently: (Offense) Chad Pennington (Defense) Jason Ferguson (Special Teams) weekly selection My contentions: (Offense) - Chad will most likely not see the field. Don't get me wrong, I love Penny and don't mind a leader-by-example leader one bit. However, would it be more preferable to have a captain who will be on the field in the offensive huddle than the sidelines? Perhaps more than one captain (noticed other teams have multiples)? I pray Henne steps up during this pre-TC/pre-season and becomes more of a voice in what is now his 2010 offense. It would speak volumes if Henne could earn that patch this preseason. He has a lot to prove, but that in and of itself would tell me all I would need to know about the kid. Normally I wouldn't have an issue with multiples on offense, but in this case both would be QBs, and we don't need two drum majors keeping different times. And again, I have no problem with Penny keeping his patch. (Defense) - NOT Jason Ferguson. Half a season? No thanks. Kinda feels like it has been a long time coming for Yeremiah Bell. Anyway, let's hope Dansby rallies the troops like #54 used to. He was a captain in Arizona so it wouldn't surprise me one bit if the signal-caller (no not #52) also wore a "C". While I don't expect any of the rookies to earn a "C", I just can't find myself ruling out the fact that something like 5 out of the 7 were captains in college. And wow, despite the fact that we lack old guns to choose from in this department, it's really nice to know that we're stacked with young talent on defense.
