Rex Ryan Names 2011 New York Jets Team Captains

The media announced the players who will join March Sanchez as this years squad’s team captains.  Mark was named earlier in the summer and news game out on twitter about the rest.  They are:  Eric Smith, Sione Pouha, Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes.  All are deserving and are truly the leaders of the team.  I’m especially happy for Eric Smith and Sione Pouha who have stepped up their game, are great guys off the field and will help the younger players.

rodboone Rex named @Esmitty33 (ST), @Pouha91 (D), @Revis24 & @santonio10 (O) team captains, along with @Mark_Sanchez of course. #Jets 8/13/11 11:54 AM
JennyVrentas Pouha calls being named captain “a position of privilege,” “an honor” to know team and coaches think of him that way. #nyj 8/13/11 11:57 AM

TheJetsStream Rex on naming @Santonio10 one of captains for season: “I want him to lead from the front.. and that’s what he’s doing.” #nyj 8/13/11 11:29 AM
TheJetsStream Kudos for #Jets @Esmitty33 for being a named a captain for Special Teams for the season. Underappreciated player. #nyj 8/13/11 11:30 AM
TheJetsStream NT Sione @Pouha91 has certainly earned Rex’s respect. naming him as a defensive captain for the season with permanent “C” is clear evidence 8/13/11 11:32 AM
janesports Ryan praised Sione Pouha, said he’s been the starting nose tackle for 2 years. Said nothing ever given to captains Pouha or DeVito. #Jets 8/13/11 11:44 AM
BobGlauber But tells media first? Odd. RT @JennyVrentas: Rex told captains indiv. their selection an hour ago. Hasn’t announced to the team yet. #nyj 8/13/11 11:51 AM
