RG3 Named Team Captain, Should Wilson?
Thu Nov 15, 2012 4:00 pm
  • Just saw that RG3 was just voted a team captain for the rest of the season. http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8634642/robert-griffin-iii-washington-redskins-voted-team-captain

    Obviously the link itself is not Seahawks-related, but I was hoping to turn the discussion to the Seahawks.

    It got me thinking that maybe the Hawks will do the same with Wilson. The Hawks have only used 1 of their 2 Captain spots on Offense (Unger) and I guess you can name someone a captain at any time.

    I think it would be a great sign of respect for the team to do this now that is looks like Wilson will be the starter the whole year. I understood not naming him one in the beginning since no one was really sure how he would play, but now that he looks entrenched in the role, and he also has taken a leadership role with leaving notes for the receivers, etc....this is something I would love to see the Hawks do.

    Would you like to see the Hawks do this? Or do you think we should just wait until next year?

  • Honestly, I'm surprised it hasn't happened already. Only took him a month at Wisconsin...

  • Why would Wilson be named captain of the Redskins?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought MRob was also a captain.

    Yup. Officially, on paper, he's a Special Teams captain.

    We have used 2 on STs, 1 on D, and 1 on O. You are allowed 2 in each of the 3 categories.

  • here is what I was able to find from the beginning of the season..

    Seattle voted on its captains for the season, electing center Max Unger on offense, defensive end Red Bryant on defense and Michael Robinson and Heath Farwell for special teams

    Isn't it obvious?

    Russell Wilson is such an enigma that he is capable of bending the space-time continuum, therefore being able to be named the Team Captain of the Hawks next year, this year, and LAST YEAR, as well as being named the Team Captain of the Redskins this year.
    Next year he will be named Team Captain of the Colts, as well.

    Also, Russell Wilson is a Bawse.

  • Max Unger is a very deserving offensive captain. However, I think he will have know problem at all passing the torch to his QB next year. The QB should always be the offensive captain, especially if hes worth a damn.

  • I too was very surprised when he wasn't named captain at the start of the season, especially after every media person shouting for months about how he was named captain at Wisconsin only 0.06 seconds after he met his team. I took it as a sign that the offense wasn't confident he would keep the job for the whole season - from a pure ability standpoint. Now we know that he's going to keep the job, barring injury. Seems like it would be a little obvious and unnecessary at this point; I doubt it affects the locker room. But really? The QB, who has leadership qualities that no one will shut up about, and works harder than John Henry, etc. is not a captain? I say do it.

  • Captain or no Captain. It wont change Wilson. It is just a title. He will go out and lead the same way he has been. The team will hand of the "C" next year.

    Agreed. He's still going to improve and lead the offense out there no matter if he has that 'C' on his chest or not.

    It's a good question though. I'm surprised RGIII was named captain in the middle of the season. In the Seahawks case, I don't think it's necessary.

    I agree with the above two. If he's leading the team, it doesn't matter if he has the C to go with it. The players know.

  • It would be a nice honor, but I'm in favor of only changing things in the course of a season that need changing. By that, I mean fixing things that are preventing the team from winning. Now, if the players take it upon themselves to petition the coaches for Wilson's "C" right now, then let the locker room have its way.
