If this franchise knew how to make consistent, good player personnel decisions, I wouldn't be at all scared to see him go. But as far as I'm concerned, what we'd get for Peppers, valuable as it may be, would probably be mishandled with the scouting department and whatnot.

the aforementioned Steelers and Pats organizations can get away with things like that, that's why they're on top of their divisions almost every year, they know how to work the system.

Here are some options.

Dunta Robinson
Albert Haynesworth
Bertrand Berry
Rocky Bernard
Eric Barton


we could possibly get on maybe and i mean maybe 2 of these guys. ah would be the priority but i just dont see that happening. he would command as much if not more than peppers.

His production isn't solely his fault. He came out this year and had a GREAT year. Coaching goes a long way. You have to put your players in position to succeed and John Fox and company didn't do that. I think he wants to stay in Carolina but he also wants to win. He's a low key guy so money doesn't matter to him as far as I see it. He just wants to win a CHAMPIONSHIP and I don't blame him if he wants to leave because of that.

Like he said, everything was right this year. And Fox STILL couldn't get it done. All he has is extra talent around him, the only reason he's considered a GOOD coach.

If Pep wants to go that cool we will get good compensation for him. The thing is though, what team will he find that has a better chance of returning to the playoffs next year and also willing to give up so much for him. I think he will get tagged but will sign a deal my self.

I wouldn't be surprised if NE swooped in if we don't franchise him assuming they have the cap space..

We have had some good drafts in the past. Our worst round is the 2nd.

Oh no they haven't been bad at all. I'm just saying, out of all of them, IMO, Peppers has been the best draft pick we ever made.


Now a solid organization would take the value he's worth now and end up exceeding it with what they take, I'm very doubtful this scouting department could match or exceed the talent they currently have with Peppers.

And we've shown signs of improvement there....Richard Marshall, Ryan Kalil, Dwayne Jarrett (hey, he shows promise).

As good as Peppers is what is is with out an upper tier DE on the other side? We all said last year that Sacks dont tell you how good a player is and now it seem that we defend him with them. He has not played like old in a while and seems like he has hit a wall. IMO Beason could very well be the next Ray Lewis and we dont even know it yet. He is just amazing to watch.

Well, I'll go WAY out on a limb and say Pep WILL re-sign with the Cats. I think he'll stay. Trgo gets the axe, and Pep will love the new DC.

I say Peppers stays as well. Hopefully next year with the draft coming up we can go all the way.
