Guess we can finally put to rest this talk that Roethlisberger's teammates don't respect him..LOL. That's been long gone if you ask me but I know we've had many discussions on here in the past about why he wasn't a captain every year previously.
The Steelers selected two players to serve as team captains for the 2012 season, the team announced through a vote of their teammates today.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will serve as the offensive captain, while defensive end Brett Keisel will serve as the defensive captain. Roethlisberger has been selected as an offensive captain for the fourth time in his career (2008, ’09, ’11, ’12). This marks Keisel’s first selection as a captain.
The Steelers did not select a special teams captain for 2012.
