NFL.com story on training camps...

Peppers has been the star of training camp and his presence has raised the level of his defensive teammates. The effort has quickly allowed him to become one of the defensive leaders despite a quiet demeanor. In speaking to several coaches about Peppers' impact, they were effusive in their praise for his professionalism, energy and work ethic. Peppers has been so impressive, he will likely be named one of the team captains.

i think those expecting pep to have a 3-4 sack season are sadly mistaken. i wouldn't be surprised to see him have a career year.

As long as he doesn't show up for the Panthers, like he has in the past, I'm fine with him having a record breaking year.

I still think his inconsistent effort and result will resurface during the season.

Peppers had the ability to dominate....when he wanted to. It just seemed like he seldom wanted to.

the guy is simply unbelievable. do not think 20 sacks it is out of the question this year ecspecially with him working with marinelli as the d-line coach.

Peppers a team captain.... lol

Pepp has always looked good in camp. He looks good just until a bit of adversity hits him.

My thoughts exactly Zod.

He was called out by Richardson one season here to step-up and take a leadership role. And what did he do......he wilted like a little bitch. He could not handle the pressure or expectations.

They better hope he comes out and has an All-Pro year. If he puts forth the inconsistent effert that he did here, the Chicago fans and media will crucify him.

Peppers will have a good year if the Bears have a good year. If the Bears find themselves to be 3-5 by the bi-week, Peppers' effort will probably drop dramatically. Let's see how he handles the constant double teams.

I still think Peppers will have a good year just because of the fact that it is his first year on a new contract, but I don't think he will match his best year as a Panther.

Watching Peppers get layed out by Smith on a block is going to be epic.

As soon as Cutler plays like Cutler, Pep will shut down as he always does when the offense sucks. With Martz and his pass happy tendencies...not gonna be pretty.

i do not believe it was necessary for richardson to do that. not all players are born to be vocal leaders, but rather lead by example. it is not imperative for a DE to the vocal leader of you defense like it is for a QB is on offense. i do not think it is fair to crucify him for that, it is not the kind of person he is.

now in chicago he has people like urlacher and tommie and chris harris to take that pressure off him. he was not born in chicago and play football his whole life in chicago, so the expectations for him to be a vocal leader will not be as important. he will go out there and lead by example and will bet my forum rights to post on this board that it will be his best year ever.
