Oh Captain My Captain: Dolphins name team captains

Oh Captain My Captain

The Dolphins named their captains for this year’s 2011 season today.

Offensive captains:

Jake Long (probably best player on the team) was nominated as a captain. Long is the leader of the offensive line and should obviously be a staple and leader on this team for this year and many years to come. Long is already arguably the best left tackle in the game.

Chad Henne: For the first time in Chad’s career, in college or in the pro’s, he has been named a team captain. Chad has taken on more of a leadership role this offseason and his nomination as captain is well deserved.

Two Michigan men as captains

Defensive captains:

Karlos Dansby: The heart of the defense, ILB Karlos Dansby has already made an impression here in Miami and is a wise choice for defensive captain.

Yeremiah Bell: The Pro Bowl safety is ready to roll this year.

Special-teams captains will be named week to week according to Coach Sparano.
