actually i see this team being a lot like the pats defense, obviously there was bruschi, seymour, mcginest but there really was no single guy that seemed to the "face" of that defense. thats what i hope would happen here, and i certianly think we have the talent to do so.
I would say that Woodson and Dat were those guys that epitomized our defense for quite a while, now that they're gone (as well as Glover) I don't think we have a real emotional leader out there on D. I don't really see Ware being that guy. Usually an emotional leader of a defense is a guy standing up reading the offense and making calls....QBing the defense if you will.
I think Roy could be that guy but isn't yet. I think Carp is uncomfortable being anything but the leader on his defense. Once he establishes himself as a legit pro LB, I fully expect him to be the leader on the unit.
I think a leader needs to be one of the best players on a unit but also has a lot to do with their personality and I think Carp is a guy that will take over anything he's involved with.
