    Cool Steelers announce 2012 Team Captains

    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.

    I would have specified that the beard itself is captain, but Keisel is fine by me

    Basically a no brainer on offense,I'm fine with Da Beard on D. Normally you would like your Middle
    Linebacker as the vocal inspiration and for barking assignments etc... but Brett seems to have alot
    of respect from the D and they'll prop up when spoken to.

    Captains are really a cosmetic title anyway. They are the ones that go out for coin tosses and such but nothing changes on the field during the game.

    I like that Ben made it again and Da Beard is a great choice on defense as he is one of the elder statesman now.

    I agree 100%, They needed a vet to step up and be a leader,Brett is a excellent choice. Troy didnt want the title rather lets his on field demeanor lead. Its strange not having Hines on the team or captain, Ben is best choice too.
