Who is the #1 true Captain of this team. (Players)

Who is the #1 true Captain of this team. (Players)

Phil Dawson? At least he's the real leader in age....
#1 Jim Harbaugh (he used to be a player)

Offense-Frank Gore (Team goes nowhere without him)

Defense-Patrick Willis (no explanation needed)

ST-CJ Spillman, or Kassim Osgood?

Frank Gore is our leader I doubt without him we would've gotten out of that slump we were in, our team is beat up if he was hurt I think we would've been 1-4, Frank Gore is undoubtedly the leader of the players.

It seems like you guys are picking your personal favorite player (Gore). My eyeball test tells me that it seems to be a split between Willis and Kaepernick. Whitner, Davis, and Bowman come VERY close.

nope. Frank is the leader in there. Kaep has barely played a full season. Has barely been around. Gore has been here since 2005. He has the respect of everyone in the locker room. The team knows, that without him, they go nowhere.

I'm not knocking his importance or respect. These things are well documented. That doesn't always = captain or leader though. Gore has always been quiet. When Willis speaks, everybody listens (or goes deaf). Bowman is becoming that way as well.

you're assuming though that just because someone is quiet, that they can't be a leader. Bryant Young was quiet, but everyone knew he was a leader. If and when Frank talks, the team listens. I'm not saying that Kaep isn't a leader on the team, but everyone knows that Frank is the man.

You guys know that the players vote for the team captains, right? Not the coaches. If it were Frank, he'd be offensive captain and not Colin.
I'm just glad we have this many choices. Not too long ago we had only a couple and now we have like 10. I don't know who the true leader of the team I think guys at each position step up and lead that group. Overall though I'd say Frank and Justin speak by their actions more than their words. Vocally seems like Willis has stepped up and taken the pre game speech although not sure how he is during the rest of the game. I know his first how many years in he was quiet. Vernon is vocal too. With our locker room atmosphere and the way the organization from top to bottom wants to win everyone buys into the system and takes responsibility for themselves. In the past you would have players do their own thing and play for themselves. That's the main reason you don't have players calling each other or the coaches out. Everyone is handled in person in the locker room. I don't think there are too many problems anyways because again everyone takes responsibility. You look at some of the bad teams and when you start losing consistently players question the coaches, coaches question the players, everyone's blaming everyone. People stop believing in the system and players start playing for themselves. Look at all the stuff surrounding the Bucs and all that has come out. Not to mention the staph infection outbreak which the Browns had a bad case of years back when they were bad. Shouldn't happen to a professional organization. Probably a sign along with everything else going on there that things aren't being run right.

DBs--Whitner
LB--Willis
DL--J Smith

OL--Staley
WR--Boldin
RB--Gore
QB--CK

I don't believe this is a team with one voice or leader. It seems a collection of guys who work incredibly hard and lead by example more than words.

Next generation leaders:

DBs--Reid
LB--Bowman (only three years younger than Willis...but he's special as well)
DL--? Carradine (hope springs eternal)

OLine--Boone (very vocal)
WR--? Patton, Baldwin or name here ____________
RB--? Lattimore or Hunter or James?
QB--Dani...oops...Col...oops...Kaepernick.

I've watched almost every Pat Willis Mic'd up session there is. He almost never shuts up...lol. From the field to the sideline, he owns the defense. Check out the one from the Rams game a few years ago when we damn near set a record in penalties. He was clearly upset about all the offsides penalties.
