I picked Kuechly but I believe he has a harder road with Davis and Beast being strong leaders on this team thats why I have him replacing CJ. As far as Gross goes its just time.

I think it would be best for the team if Cam was voted Captain over Steve Smith.

 

However I think it will be  Steve and Gross,

 

Beason and the suddenly very vocal Godfrey on defense.

I can see the media poo storm now if Cam is given the patch by either Gross or Smitty....

"Cam Newton, while not earning the patch, was simply given it by _____" etc


No thanks.

They would have to influence the team to vote for Cam and move on from them...

They wouldn't tell Joe Person...hey, I got the team to vote for Cam bc they wouldn't of done it otherwise

Yeah I didn't think about it that way. If one of them were to mention it prior to voting it would be okay. Just wouldnt want it to be after a vote and the media catch on.

Anyway I can't see it happening.

Gross or Smith need to pass the torch....make it known they want Cam to wear their C.

IMO.

Best of both worlds if it played out like that.

 

I could see this as possible...but not probable.

 

But, it is not really Gross or Smith passing the torch.  The captains are a team vote.  It is not for a person voted s captain to turn it down and pass it to another.

 

This team knows that not having Cam as a captain is somewhat of a distraction based on how the media portrays it.  That may be enough of a reason for the team to pass the torch and make the move.

 

Still think it is a long shot...but you never know.

Cam--the QB needs it--the team needs to show support for him.  Nobody else dictates whether we win or lose as much as Newton, and this team would be winning 2-4 games a season instead of 6-7 with Cam.  This is important if Cam is to take the next step. Reward his maturity.  NOT giving him a patch could be counterproductive.

 

If you do not give a C to Cam and you give one to Beason, then you have a Marty Hurney approach to this team.  Beason has played 5 games in 2 seasons.  He was nearly cut before agreeing to a pay cut.  I love Beason, but the C would stand for "Coach" more than it would "Captain."

 

I do not understand how you all have 2 offensive captains and 3 defensive. Assuming you can have 3 offensive, this is easy.

 

Cam Newton

Jordan Gross

Steve Smith

 

Luke Kuechly

Thomas Davis

 

Jordan Senn

Sounds like we have great leadership candidates on both sides of the ball, too many for the allotment of captains patches.  That's a good problem to have folks. 

 

I don't think we should underestimate the quality of veteran leadership.  It wasn't that long ago that a certain #90 openly shunned his opportunity to be that guy.
