    Gasper: Team Captains Named

    Wilfork is a captain despite wanting a new deal. Those disloyal bastard Patriots! :p

    Mayo a Captain already?? Happy for Mayo. He would retire a PAT..

    What about Sanders? Still think he is average though.

    That's a lot of size walking out onto that field for the coin toss. Holy crap.

    Mayo as a captain is great. Hopefully he assumes the leadership role that was left void when Bruschi, Rodney, Vrabel, etc. all departed.

    Interesting that we cut down from 8 captains to 5. I would have liked to see Adalius Thomas a captain as well.

    Yea, It was his 8th year in a row as Special Teams Captain.

    That's a fact.

    Re: Gasper: Team Captains Named

    Interesting that all four defensive captains are gone.

    It makes sense to have fewer than eight or nine captains as well. Devalues the role. A max of two per group - offense/defense/ST - is sensible.

    The Daniel Graham approach. Didn't work last time, hopefully second time is a charm...

    It seemed a little light, I was hoping to the the Hit Stick as a captain - there's no-one in the secondary so hopefully he'll be a pseudo captain.

    I thought of Hit Stick too. Hopefully next year (though not if it means Wilfork is gone).

    No surprises as far as the players selected. I thought that Adalius Thomas would be a Captain as well. Seems as though BM wasn't quite ready.

    I'm a little surprised that Wilfork got the nod over Warren, but other than that pretty much as expected.

    As am I; and Moss voted ahead of Kevin Faulk (the only remaining pre-Belichick Patriot) is disappointing too.

    No surprises? I'm kind of surprised to see Mayo this early. This kid has been an excellent draft choice for us so far...

    The players acknowldeged what is obvious: Wilfork and Mayo need to be the defensive leaders.

    Moss is a captain.................. does thing mean he's not on the bubble anymore? :singing:


    Yes, he was............. I still get such a kick out of that after all of the Moss is going be a cancer, Moss is all washed up...... Too funny that he is still going strong as a leader on this team.

    I hope he finishes here and goes into the HOF as a Patriot. :cool:

    Re: Gasper: Team Captains Named

    I'm kinda surprised Warren isn't a captain considering he's the most season veteran on D (in terms of years with the patriots i know adalius is older)
