    Logical choices, except I would have Silas Redd ahead of Marcus Martin. A returning 1K RB over an OL who lost his job in 2012.

      Martin has become probably one of the nations top centers… and silas has been overshadowed by madden and justin davis….

      also silas didnt go for over 1000 last year… get your fact rights Helen

        Leaders have a history of success to draw upon. Martin hasn’t taken a single snap at center so don’t call him “nation’s top center” until he proves himself. Redd hasn’t been overshadowed by Madden and Davis, he has been injured. “1K RB” is an adjective to describe someone capable of running for 1,000 yards; no he didn’t quite get there in 2012 due to injuries, but he is a 1K RB.

          Redd was overshadowed by Madden? He was out all year. Sweetie, get back to servicing the Cadre.

          In a 13 game season, even an average RB can rush for 1000 yards. If he was so great, the talk would be 2000.

            Bill, can I get extra bacon on my breakfast platter?

          That Dementia is some nasty stuff, you’re all confused.

          Take a few weeks off, we all need a break!

      WTF? You know more than the entire team about who should be a captain? I’m guessing the players voted for the guys that (they felt) earned the honor. A leader of stats doesn’t make you a leader.

      Focus on servicing the cadre, please!

    Is there some sort of surprise that a QB wasn’t selected? No reason to even mention that tidbit, just more trolling

    • Bill

        Bill, can you get extra eggs with the new breakfast platter.

    For the first time in its history, the Cadre selected two Captains, one woman, one man. Congratulations to:

    ALL WELL DESERVED! Where is Dion Bailey?

  • CardinalnGold

    Would’ve been great if the team would’ve selected one of the QBs as a captain & forced Kiffin’s hand a little.
