what impact did Peppers walking have on Jerry?

Everyone has played armchair cardiologist about the mental effect Richardson's heart surgery has played on his decisions making process, but what about Peppers walking on him?

It's no secret Jerry thought highly of Julius, exemplified most notably by basketball outings and publicly calling him out to take a larger role in team affairs.

It's also interesting that during the fox era, the Panthers have kind of been run like a small time, family business. Loyalty has played a premium over ability and cost effectiveness.

Maybe Richardson finally had a harsh wake up call when someone he thought so highly of basically betrayed the trust he'd placed in him. Maybe Julius walking is what has spurred this recent and radical change in team philosophy.

maybe...pstall is gay

Peppers is actually the heir apparent to the team when the Big Cat passes and his leaving is only a test to see how "other" teams function, much like when Amish youth go out into the world to learn how their way of life is different. While Julius is away, the team is restocked with fresh players to be too loyal to.

Peppers is actually one of the final cylons and will be reborn in Carolina after his gay lover poisons him.

Its not peppers fault that JR tried to low ball him. All he wanted was an extra million a year. Now he's taking his cheapness out on guys like Brad Hoover and naill diggs. I tell you JR is out of control. He must be stopped at once no matter the cost

Meh! You're just jealous because I took your number one "bad guy" spot from you. Granted it wasnt intentional but its still nice to know you envy me so much. :)

Seriously how the hell did Peppers backstab JR? You couldnt be anymore ass backwards if you tried.

Fiz is probably going to frown and sigh at his return.

Never considered the possibility before you mentioned it.

My Dad ran into JR and Peppers in the stadium not long after he was drafted. He was a photographer at the time. Richardson was driving him around on his golf cart showing him the stadium and he stopped and introduced Peppers. He said you could tell how happy Richardson was to have Peppers in Carolina. Like a new father showing off a child.

I would imagine it has had an impact on Jerry. However, my line of thinking is more that JR is coming to grips with his mortality after the heart transplant and is desperate to leave the Panthers in a good position after he is gone. Maybe even bring a Lombardi to Charlotte before he bites the big one.

Maybe he's acquiring some of the personality of the person whose heart he acquired. It is known to happen.
