Peppers

Just as I have suspected... I think Pep was hoping for us to go all the way this year, and if we did, he'd give us a chance. We didn't and now he's looking to go to a consistent winner or big market. The article doesn't say that, but that's what I've always felt. I'm just ready to see what we can get out of the picks for him because if he wanted to stay he would've already made that clear. Dickhead...

adios. I wish him well but he isn't worth the investment now. He is invisible at key moments too often now.

I hope we at least franchise him and trade him. Try to get a first rounder back or something.

Julius Peppers;

On head coach John Fox's message to the team after the game: It's been a great season. Again, we would have liked to have gone further and accomplished more goals, but it didn't happen. Next year you've just got to see if you can get some of those things corrected and win the ultimate goal.

On if there need to be fundamental changes to the team: No. This is the right team. This is a great bunch of guys. There's a lot of talent in here. Young guys, old guys. The right people in the locker room. Today it was just a bad day. If we play that team tomorrow or we had played them yesterday it may have been a different outcome, but today they were the better team.

Is Peppers worth $100 million.

If we can get picks for him, let him go. He's going to be 30. Is he a force, sure, when he wants to be.

We need draft picks and cap room.

Sometimes, i wish the Panthers would follow the Patriots, when a 'star' hits 30, send him on his way. Let some other team deal with the cap hit.

He isn't worth the money it will take to re-sign him. He will demand a boat load on the open market. I say franchise him and get the first rounder + More for him. Hopefully it is an AFC Team. Maybe Oakland :-)

After all this talk of continuity, it's not outside the realm of possibility that both Peppers and Delhomme will be gone next season.

If we had the patriots coaching that would be a great plan.

BINGO. The Pats, Eagles and Steelers are the best at that.
Funny how they are always good.

I would love that, but do you really think any team would give that up for him?

I think a 1st and a 3rd would be generous. The Chiefs got a 1st and two 3rd round picks for Jared Allen, I don't know if Peppers has the same value as him.

I would also. Dont know if a team would give that up though.

Not sure how the whole thing would work. How much could the Panther's get from a team when Pep is franchised? Meaning, what kind of leverage would the Panthers really have? Does a team they trade him to only get Pep for one year? Would there be some kind of deal made that the trade would be contingent on Pep signing a long term deal , etc.
