I see guys like Gross and Smitty passing the Captain's reigns over to guys like Cam and Kalil. On defense I really see Gamble and Beason holding the Cs. IMO they should, anyways. ST's is a mess, the only incumbent we still have is Jansen lol I don't see a long snapper holding the STs C. Perhaps someone like Tolbert taking the STs C.

No one will have to give their C patch on offense, Godfrey will have his taken away.

Smith has always been a badass....not much of a history of being a real leader. More of a loner that gets the C out of default

Absolutely. It was apparent he was a leader by the end of his rookie season.

You can have a minimum of 3 and maximum of 6. They can be distributed however the team pleases. Doesn't have to be two captains for each 3 phases of a team. There can be 2 for offense, 3 for defense, and 1 for ST for example. Or any combination.

With that said, Cam will be a captain. Whether that means Gross, Smith, and Cam all share it on offense or Smith giving it to Cam (Smith was named captain because we no longer had a "franchise QB"). If not, I think it would be a huge mistake.

Here we go with what?

It is documented per guys in the Panthers organIzation Smitty has never been a lockerroom leader and always been more of a loner.

Nothing wrong with that. He has always set a tone with his play others should follow. That and years in the league have earned him a C at times.

Comical based on what we know that some pimp him as a great lockerroom leader.

-He has punched an alleged 3 teammates.

-In 08 his teammates confronted him that everyone has always walked on eggshells around him.

-He has never shown to be a good mentor for young players overall.

Let Smitty be a bad mofo who sets the tone with his work ethic and play.....painting him as something else is silly based on what he has shown here

Yep!

Coaches decision, if anything. It has to happen, it's part of the growth.

Rodney Peete was Captain of our Super Bowl team. A starting veteran QB is a virtual lock to be named Captain. I can't wait to see how Cam responds emotionally to adversity this season. Last year that was the only thing he struggled with.

I don't know if it was ever confirmed, but I remember hearing last year that Cam almost got it as a rookie, and it was a close vote between him and what was believed to be Smitty.

So yes, he'll get it this year.
