Was Beason a Defensive Captain this year?

and with Peppers on the way out will become the guy to focus or D around?

I think so

He's been the focus for at least a season. Peppers has never been a leader.

Peppers was never a leader. He's a quiet guy who does his job.

I don't know if Beason was the Captain, but after Minter retiring, I'd wager he was.

I don't think there will be a drop-off in talent or play if Pep leaves, but if he does I think they might build the team a bit more around the LBs since they have talent at that position.

I believe you can build defensive schemes around a guy like Jon Beason. He's pretty special.

But I guess that's up to our DC. Whoever it may be next year.

Beason is the leader. Harris is a very close second and I think Lucas really tried to fire up the rest of the CBs. I'd like to see Davis become more of a leader he seems like a pretty badass dude much like Beason.

Yeah I think Beason was a captain this year, but even if he didn't have the little C on his jersey he was still the leader of the defense.

Besides being the MLB... what hdevonxz said. He was the leader on the field. That doesn't necessarily translate to the leader in the locker room, but it's good if it does. I have the impression (right or wrong) that he's quickly becoming the defensive leader in the locker room. Even as a rookie, he was a dominant personality on the defense. That's a very, very good thing.

He was the guy receiving plays from the DC on game day. I've venture to say he was team captain. Most interviews point to that being the case.

When building teams around your LB core you have to have dominate DTs. You see this in Baltimore and Chicago and almost any team that runs a 3-4 defense. I can be risky however as I believe Denver also tried this and failed big time. Not too many teams build their defense around the LBers that run a 4-3 recently but in the past teams have been successful doing it. The only thing I question with the Panthers doing this is can Fox coach a defense that is built around the LBers. When he has been successful both in NY and Carolina it has been with a stud DE bring pressure.

Yes, without question (whether Peppers is gone or not) Beason is the true leader of our D and should be.
