Will you miss Peppers or Delhomme more?

88 posts in this topic

Funny, Peppers puts up All-Pro numbers every year (except one) while Jake's last name has been used as the epitome of failue, yet you're going to miss Jake more? It's amazing how sensitive our fanbase is when a player expresses wanting to play somewhere else.

stats and numbersdont tell the whole story though. during his career, PROBABLY 85% of peppers sacks came in just a few games a season. usually against bad teams. julius also didnt have really good numbers in the playoffs, but jake raised his game in the playoffs, and for years had the highest playoff QB rating in the league, of course until 2008 messed up his average.

jake didnt have the numbers that peppers did, but the truth is that jake was a warrior on and off the feild. the whole team went out and gave they're all for jake when he got them fired up. his leadership will be missed more than peppers numbers will be.

This shouldnt even be a debate. Peppers all the way! I care more about production than I do character. Jake single handedly destroyed this team last year while Peppers still played at a pro bowl level.

Thanks for making my point.

Yeah like bring the team to multiple playoff victories and it's first Super Bowl appearance and playing lights out in it, only to be let down by the defense.

See what I did there?

What was your point? That most americans would prefer a DE that gets you 10 sacks a year instead of a QB that throws twice as many INTs than TD passes.

You're right....Shame on them!

Jake is a great guy, but his production (or lack there of) is going to be easier to replace.

Replacing peppers production, and mere presense on the field will be impossible.

Yes Jake did alot of good things from 2003 - 2005. After that he became a liability. You can go back to 2006 when he threw 4 game ending INTs at the end of the game which cost us a shot at the playoffs or him throwing more INTs than TDs in 2008 (including the playoffs) and in 2009. The fact is he was causing more harm than good.

Peppers was so good his sacks should have over come anything Jake did. Where was he in the Arizona game? Where was he in the Dallas game? The Buffalo game? on and on...
