    Defensive Captain

    We all know who the captain is. Anyone think the role should go to someone else? If so, who and why?

Obviously guys like Nicks, Cruz, Snee, Hynoski, and surely others are buying into some sort of leadership example and perpetuating it. I don't see the same thing on the defense side. The defense seems like a whole separate culture where things are more outspoken and undisciplined, unstable, vague - and pehaps chronically injured. Anyone else see this difference between the offense and defense?
    what you say has merrit. There is no "Eli" on the defensive sid eof the ball. They dont seem to have that person who inspires confidence and calmness like Eli does. I cant say that for sure of course but it does seem that way.

    it wasnt because he was calling the plays.....dont pat your self on the back to much you may hurt your arm....

    The only Defensive player qualified to be Captain......and the only one who SHOULD BE Captain, is the one with the dot on his helmet calling out the defensive plays!

    Anyone other than THAT guy being Captian is irrelevan to the performance on the field.
    These guys are men in the NFL, not members of the Racoon Lodge.....motivation should come from within!

    Why do we insist on applying childish terms to grown men in the NFL? If they still need a "Captain" to give them incentive, motivation and someone to look up to, they're in the wrong league.

    I don't know where you got the idea that the captain has no bearing on what happens on the field. If that were true no one would bother selecting a captain in the first place. The captain sets the tone in practice and on the field. The captain demands accountability. The problem is..when the captain takes games off he loses his authority.

    I don't care if Jack Sparrow is the Captain...who the captain is has no bearing on what they do on the field.
    Making someone else DC is going to make them rush the QB better?
    Uhhh...yeah.
