For the past 9 years, Peppers has been my favorite player on the Carolina Panthers. From his first season, he has dominated for our team, and for that I'd like to say thank you. A few years back when Carolina played the 49ers in SF, I went to the game in a Peppers jersey. After the game, several Panthers people signed a football I brought with me. Ricky Proehl, Muhsin Muhammed, Brentson "Boogie" Buckner, Kris Jenkins, John Fox, hell even Mark Richardson signed it. The one I was bummed about not getting was JP. As the team bus pulled away, I saw Pep behind the tinted windows because his seat light was on. I pointed at the 90 on my chest and gave a thumbs up (kinda lame I know), and Julius Peppers got up and stopped the team bus and came out and signed my ball, jersey, and took a couple pics with me and my lady. I was ecstatic.

So for all the stuff I hear about being a quiet recluse, just wanted to post a good memory about Julius Peppers from a fan stanpoint.

That being said, don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. I'm a Panthers fan first.

Step it up Everette Brown, I'll be buying your jersey the minute they sell it as a tackle twill.

Sorry guys, had to make one last thread on this guy before I'm done with him. No homo. :)

I agree.

Panthers first.

We loved you while you were a Panther and are sad to see you go.

But we will move on and deal.

The part I will remember of Peppers is that he never "reached his potential". We as a fan base saw a player who in his first three four seasons better than the player we have seen the last four. Whether he was held back, coaching, etc, whatever ----- the player Peppers could have been never materialized. I for sure do not want to see that accur somewhere else. Peppers does have the right to want a change of scenery. I am just dissappointed Fox/Hurney didnt see this when he didnt sign the long term deal after '07. We are all entitled to make mistakes.

Peace out Pep. I have a lot of good memories so I can't really complain but it was time. Now it's clear Beason is true captain of the defense. Beason will have this defense focused and ready to take the next step.

I thought id be pissed at peppers for leaving, but its more bittersweet like he said in the charlotte observer interview. We move on as a fanbase of the Panthers organization and this reminds us that no one is bigger than the organization. It was fun Pep. I just want him to be remembered for his years in Carolina not somewhere else.

I'll add to this, I appreciate what Peppers did for us and I enjoyed watching him play all these years.

I would have liked to see him retire as a Panther, but it didn't work out that way and I wish him all the best.
