It's an interesting issue that will be addressed soon. But we will first open the discussion to our community in this week's "Thought of the Day."
Should starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger remain a captain this season for the Pittsburgh Steelers? He was one of six team captains voted by his teammates last year, and the Steelers will have another team-wide vote coming up soon once players report on Friday.
Roethlisberger is clearly a tough and deserving leader on the field. But his recent off-the-field behavior has caused embarrassment to the organization and led to a conditional six-game suspension that's put Pittsburgh's playoff hopes in jeopardy. Roethlisberger will be with the team throughout training camp, and it will be interesting to see if teammates back him with a vote of confidence.
But right now the vote is yours, Steeler Nation. Should Roethlisberger remain a team captain this season or has he lost that right?
