Who is our defensive leader? I was under the impression it was Nick Barnett, but Bozz said it's Collins and Zero said it's Woody.

my memory is fuzzy. now that i think about it, i think the article (i don't even remmber the article) said that Collins was the leader in the secondary. sorry for misrepresenting what i heard. i don't even remember if it was from a credible source, so take it for what it's worth; not much.

I think it's Barnett more than any other single player, but it's spread out. Other leaders are Kampman, KGB, Pickett, Harris, and Woodson.

Tough to pick. I think it's better to look at the leaders at each position.

D-Line: Kampman

LB: Barnett

DB: C-Murder (Woodson)

Yeah i definitely agree with this, the great thing is they have awesome veteran leadership in all the key areas on defense. I dont think there is really any one person, but as a group the defense is filled with great leadership.

Nick Barnett would be the comprehensive leader of this defense.

That's why he'll be wearing the headset this season.

Players and Coaches say its Charles Woodson.

edit, Nick Barnett is wearing the helmet because is durable and never leaves the field, when the defense is on the field.

So by that reasoning Collins is the second leader since he's the other player whose tried out the headset?

I think the headset thing is more so because Barnett as the MLB can afford to roam around a bit before the snap, communicate with the D-Line and DBs.

Kinda hard to have Woodson with the headset when he's gotta worry about WR motions, etc.

Also kinda hard to give the headset to Kampman when he's gotta maintain his technique and keep good pad level to do his job properly.

The MLB is a convenient position to have the headset on.

Woodson and Barnett from what I'm hearing Barnett kind of takes charge with his personality and the defensive backs look up to Woodson more than anyone. Again this is just what I heard on the radio and elsewhere too. I would say that's a pretty good duo.

Guys like Harris, Kampman, and Hawk kind of lead by example.
