Why don't the Packers captains have a "C" on their jerseys?

    I hadn't even heard anything about that.
    Maybe it's just who wants to do it.

    I'm pretty sure that they only do that in college football. I could be wrong but i've never seen it.

    No it's a new addition to the jersey that is something that every team had to decide whether or not to do it. The Colts do it, I don't remember who else, but I think the Packers don't wanna do anything to change their classic, 300-year old design at all.

    He's right, everybody is doing it except Green Bay. But I think it's just a Week 1 thing, cuz they can't celebrate the 50th year anniversary thing forever.

    It would make the refs job easier and probably would benefit us possibly by allowing the refs to know whom to listen to on the field..
