Has there been a worse NYG player to wear the ďCĒ captain

MtDizzle : 1/14/2020 8:50 pm
Patch than Alec Ogletree? Iím having a hard time coming up with one other than Antoine Bethea.
Captains like that are why fragging was invented.

was named Captain in 2014 and 2015 and I think he played in like 5 games between those two seasons
Why not just have 1 Captain. Or maybe 2 (1 O, 1 D)  
DC Gmen Fan : 1/14/2020 9:06 pm : link

Ogletree Solder Bethea

Absolutely trash. Cut all of them.
Related note- there appear to be a couple or teams

Patriots being most prominent, thanks to BB that don't believe in that designation on a uniform. Sorry I cannot link because of the subscription issues you can read into it. Usual BB knows better than everyone stuff.

Google a Brady pic and you'll see what I mean. Not sure how to find a pic while in the middle of this thread. And spare me the Boomer shit.

Funny considering itís a player only vote so I think it does have some meaning. If players are voting for who they feel should wear the C thatís definitely meaningful. I guess your one of this ďlabels donít mean anythingĒ kind of people. Thatís cool too
Having Captains  
I Love Clams Casino : 1/15/2020 9:39 am : link
is stupid..

you have leaders, or you don't....slapping a "C" on their uniforms to say, "this is a leader" is stupid.....

This isnít hockey. Having a C on their Jersey doesnít mean a whole of a lot.

Do you guys really think who the 10 captains are (a joke in itself) has any bearing on the character of a team? Come on..
I actually think the Giants won a lot of the coin tosses this year  
Jimmy Googs : 1/15/2020 10:15 am : link
so there's that...
The ďCaptainĒ designation  
ZoneXDOA : 1/15/2020 3:18 pm : link
Has nothing to do with how you play on the field. Itís not a stat trophy. Itís something the team votes on and just means that they see the ďCaptainĒ as someone who is a leader and is approachable and puts the team first. That they lead by example as far as work ethic and responsibility are concerned. I also believe Ogletree will be better in 2020 with a DC that will scheme according to a playerís strengths instead of forcing confusing assignments down their throats.
Ogletree is not going to play better in 2020  
Jimmy Googs : 1/15/2020 6:05 pm : link
no matter who is coaching him...
