Peppers and Carl Carey just sent Prisco a present. He better not open it without putting it under water.

Our defensive line is getting...... seasoned.....

if they say production for a DL slows at 30 we are in some serious trouble.

Julius Peppers 30

Tyler Brayton 30

Maake Kemoeatu 31

Damione Lewis 31

Hollis Thomas 36

our line is our most veteran group.... other than kicker.....

Loved how other coaches and team personnel have the same impression....he dominates when he wants to , but takes plays and games off.

That is his true negative.

I think the article was implying more about pass rushing DEs. Besides I see none of the players except for lewis starting next year. But thats just me.

CJ>Brayton, Leonard>Kemo (same injury concerns so don't use that), arguably even Tyler or Draft Pick>Lewis. Thomas while a great bandaid was just that a bandaid on a broken leg. Hell maybe a CJ and Brown combo could relatively begin to replace Pep. I am firmly on Richardson's corner on this one, it should have happened last year.

if we sign some guys to replace him then I'm fine, but mannnn i will be pretty discouraged if we handle this like jenkins. We need to find someone to replace him, we don't have the talent on the line to replace him.

Do not forget we will get compensation for him next year in way of almost assuredly a 3rd round pick. All this for a guy who is entering a time where most likely he will be losing effectiveness and has been a pain in our side for 2 season.

I for one will not miss him. Even if he goes on to succeed I will not care as I think we have a good enough group to take his place. And I have confidence in Hurney to draft a guy or 2 if we lose him. This all could have been avoided if we had just let him walk last year. I think our season would have been a lot better off with all that extra cap space.

im down for letting him walk if someone is brought in to compete.if not i will lose all faith in this fo.i still believe some sort of compensation can be given for him to us.

Nice article, hard to argue with that kind of data... I honestly think we will end up letting him walk, will be tough to tag and trade at that price and don't want to get stuck with him at that price either.

The numbers say that when your DE turns 30, you start looking for someone else. My heart wants to see Peppers stay, my head says we should let him walk.

from a physical standpoint Peppers looked in the best shape of his carrer this year.So I still think he can give you some solid years.

I would hate to see him coming towards me as a OLB in 34
