Why Boone Wasn't Named A Captain

I know Alex Boone takes great pride in being vocal and following in Barton's footsteps but what in the world was he thinking when he offered up these ridiculous statements?

At least Bollman isn't just teaching him how to regress as a lineman, he's also making sure he regresses as an intelligent lifeform.

On Boeckman and the team's chances of winning:

"I don't think we missed Beanie at all," Boone said. "I thought Boom (tailback Dan Herron) played a great game. I thought he ran hard, ran physical. I thought Terrelle did a great job. Todd executed well.
"I thought it was just more of mental errors than missing anybody. I thought we could have easily won that game."

Then this dazzler on what he thought of the o-line play:

"I thought we did a great job. I thought we did a wonderful job. I thought there was some heat and some silly things. Like I said, it's all mental, that was the whole game, just mental errors, not doing what the call is telling us to do. Fresh guys were in there, Steve (Rehring) went down, and another kid came in and just messed up a little bit."

Is he serious?
