And why aren't captains selected before the season?

With the COLTS, they werent sure who was going to be here, with all the trades and adds and cuts. It looked like my crappy fantasy team(always looking for better players). :funny:

Preseason fight was whether a rookie should be captain.........I guess the young man has earned the respect of his teammates!! :thmup: :thmup: :thmup:

BTW....I voted for Captain Crunch on ST, Captain Kirk on offense, and Captain America for Defense.

Captain Caveman is on the PS (So easy a caveman can do it)

Captain Radar O'Reilly on IR....had to be a part of our MASH unit. :) GO COLTS!

All of these guys are definitely worth getting captain status.

Luck & Wayne have been the main guys on offense.

I still think Bethea should have gotten it but Redding & Mathis are both veteran guys.

Mcafee & Lefeged definitely deserve to be special teams captains.

Redding probably got it because in every video hes motivating the other players, getting them in the mood.

Bethea is more quiet I think

I hope Andrew doesnt put his C on the back of his uni, cause then he would be CLUCK and we all know he isnt chicken behind our line. :lol:

Congratulations to them. Redding is definitely the motivational speaker & Mathis is the motivational performer on Defense imo

Radar was a Corporal. Need to work in Captain Beefheart, Captain Steubing, and maybe Captain Ibrahim...

Can't disagree with any of these choices, they've all pretty much been the defacto captains as it is.

I'm surprised that some of you are surprised that Redding is captain.

Indeed, aside from being one of the more consistent players on the D, he does seem to be a good motivator of other players.

Not as greatly as this guy (although perhaps that's not the reason he's smiling).

I'm a little surprised Adam V. didn't get one of the ST spots and that picture is awesome.

Excellent selections....the players made the choices, and they know better than anyone who should be captains.

Colts have selected their captains, only the players voted

Mike Chappell@mchappell51

Arians: captains elected--lefeged/mcafee on ST; redding/mathis on defense; wayne/luck on offense.

Those are both odd selections on special teams.......Adam Vinatreri?

Rookie quarterback Andrew Luck and 12-year veteran wide out Reggie Wayne were named team captains on offense. Linebacker Robert Mathis and defensive end Cory Redding, who are both in their tenth year as a pro, were named as defensive captains. Punter Pat McAffe and safety/kick returner Joe Lefeged have been named as captains on special teams.

I like a lot.

Good stuff. If Angerer had remained healthy all season, do you think he would have kept the captaincy? And can you see Jerrell Freeman attaining a captaincy if he continues to play as he has all season?

I was kind of surprised that AV didn't get chosen captain again. Oh Well :sigh: He's been captain for many years. :(

    • Eh, There hasn't been a lot of details coming out about the injury other than a reported broken bone in his foot. This opens the door for a very raw TJ Green, but I think we can survive for a couple weeks if Geathers isn't back for week one. I'll be curious if Pagano addresses this in the presser today.   Throw TJ in the fire and see how he does. It certainly isn't going to hurt him
    • I would like to see the Raiders win the AFC West; hope you're right about that.   I just don't see the Cowboys winning the NFC East, though. They have too many issues: Greg Hardy, (unless he's already cut); Elliott being accused of assault, to name a few. Then there's the idea of Romo staying healthy, which isn't  a sure thing. I'd be surprised if they do take first place.
    • This hurts. No pun intended. Safety was a big concern going into the season even with a healthy Geathers. It sure sounds like Geathers is going to miss some considerable time. We are not in good shape with the safety position.
    • I don't agree.  If they're back ups with potential to start in the future, they were good picks.  Not every draft pick is going to start or even make the team.  The hope is that they improve the team, and quality depth definitely improves a team.   Besides, do you really want more than one rookie starter protecting the franchise?
    • Varga was a nice kid. I talked with him last year at training camp. He just seemed like a normal dude, like one of my good friends. Being in the NFL never "got to him" per say. He made the right choice after reading his statement on his concussions. I couldn't imagine looking for apartments all day and then leaving and not even remember what the apartment looked like. Scary. His health is worth more than playing football.
