Discussion in 'Tennessee Titans and NFL Talk' started by TorontoTitanFan, Sep 7, 2012.
Cornerback Jason McCourty was a captain in college at Rutgers, and before that in high school. McCourty was even a captain in Pop Warner while growing up in New Jersey.
“It was all about the coin toss then,’’ McCourty said with a smile.
Now, McCourty’s a captain again. He shares the honor with four of his teammates – quarterback Jake Locker, guard Steve Hutchinson, linebacker Colin McCarthy and linebacker Tim Shaw – following a vote by the players.
“It’s a great honor,’’ McCourty said. “But I think you just have to continue to be who you are. A guy doesn’t have to be a captain to be a leader, we’ll have other guys who step up when they talk or do different things. So for each guy you lead in your own way.”
Locker and McCarthy are just second year players, while Hutchinson is the veteran of the group. A 12-year pro, Hutchinson joined the Titans this offseason after playing previously in Seattle and Minnesota.
“Any time your teammates vote you in, especially for me being new to the team,’’ Hutchinson said. “It is a huge honor.”

Would replace Hutch with Nate.
But a great group of players and guys
I'm hoping Hutch adds some of that 'tude Mawae used to.
Washington should definitely be a captain. I have seen a lot of his interviews and he always seems to be very passionate about the team, not to mention he lead the team last year in receiving yards and had 7 TD's.
I'm happy with the selections.
our McCourty is a captain too.
At least your McCourty is halfway deserving of the title.
