Is Big Ben Ready to Be Captain Again?

As final cuts were being made and Crezdon Butler was being swept up by the Steelers in the West Cardinals, the Steelers named their team captains for the year.  The captains for the 2011 season include Ward, Farrior, Arnaz Battle for special teams and Ben Roethlisberger.  After Big Ben’s brush with the law and resulting suspension by commish Goodell, his teammates decided to leave him off the captains list.  This year, Ben is back on the co-captains list – but is he ready or deserving as such?  Last year was a very productive year for the franchise quarterback, and he appeared to experience some redemption on his part for his actions during that previous offseason.  Like most in Steelers Nation, I feel that Ben is an elite quarterback on the field, but his persona off could use a bit of improvement – and he is making strides in that.  He is a great commander on the field and is a captain in his own right, but should that extend to that right of passage for the team?  For those voting ‘no’ – why not?

Should Ben Roethlisberger have been named a captain for the Steelers?
