Those were our captains of our 2009 Miami Dolphins and by the looks of this offseason we won't have one returning captain playing for us in 2010.
So how do go about having a team with success without having vetern leadership on the team? I don't think it is possible and IMO I think this was a big part in why the team lost the final three games at the end of the season. We have all heard about Porter's antics late in the season and the problems that caused for the team.
So who will our new Captains be? Who will be leading our 2010 Dolphins to the playoffs?
Leadership is one of those things that you can't measure or time. Either you have it or you don't and right now we are a very young team and you and I don't know if these players have "it".
Is Chad Henne ready to step up and lead this team? Maybe
Is Ronnie Brown someone who you want to put in charge of rallying the troops? Maybe
Or do the Dolphins go outside of who we already have on the roster by resigning Taylor and looking at getting some more vetern leadership in FA like Darren Sharper or maybe trading for Boldin.
These are just thoughts but if we stay status quo who would be our captains?
Brown, Henne, Bell, Crowder ????
I don't know and that IMO is why this is what really needs to be addressed this offseason.
