Mike Minter Defends Peppers???

38 posts in this topic

I'm not saying Pep wanted Minter to do this, Im just saying that maybe Minter is trying to figure it out too just like we are.

Maybe he does have it figured out and just said it. Minter was always a standup guy throughout his time at Nebraska and when he played for us. He worked hard and was a good leader. He wouldn't lie or sugar coat his words to try and cover up something. Buckner on the other hand...

Minter is right.. I've been sayin it all along. Pep fulfilled his contract and wants to go somewhere else. OMFGZ!!! OH NOEZ!!! Please, the dude can't be crucified cause he hasn't done anything wrong.

agreed..it's honestly a shock to me to see fans of the Carolina Panthers disrespect Pepp the way they are...got me quiet on here. Julius Peppers is the best defensive player that the Carolina Panthers ever had...to the dude that said it before...mmmmmuch reeeeespect!!!

A reasonable and sound judgement on the whole affair coming from a former teammate and a player all fans acknowledge as being a true Panther.

If he understand then why do so many fans not?

Many fans are angry at Peppers because probably like me, it appears he checked out of here two years ago and has been just going through the motions. He did what he needed to do this year to just show the rest of the league he could produce in order to be able to get a deal somewhere else.

Well really if any of us played for Trgo do you really think we would stay? He might have inside info and knows Trgocrap is staying.

better off without him even if he walks as a free agent. if we are lucky enough to get a pick for him we should thank our lucky stars. if we tag him and offer a contract for 17 million pep will fly in to sign it, why the hell not? 17 million in guarenteed $. the other teams know that! it's just OK to let him walk and keep the $ for free agents and the future. SCREW PEP!!!!

I wouldn't really have expected anything negative from Minter.

Mike Minter is a great man. The team misses his presence in the locker room. If you go to the Mayflower Restaurant in Concord, NC you will see a photo of Mike Minter framed right before you pay your bill at the register.

Mike Minter was a classy, hard working company man. You are exactly right.

Really my point is this, Peppers doesn't need an excuse made for him because he isn't doing anything wrong.

Maybe he does have it figured out and just said it. Minter was always a standup guy throughout his time at Nebraska and when he played for us. He worked hard and was a good leader. He wouldn't lie or sugar coat his words to try and cover up something. Buckner on the other hand...

This is my take on this coment:

"He's honored his contract," said Minter, who played with Peppers for five seasons before retiring in 2006. "He stayed here after signing that first contract, which it seems like you never see with a player of his caliber. He's had the opportunity to be the highest-paid defensive player in the league, but he didn't restructure his contract. He did what was on the table for him, and you don't see that very often."

First, I don't blame JP for wanting to go somewhere else. He feels he wasn't used to the best of his abilities in Carolina. I think most of agree that, that is not true.

Second, Yes, he honored his rookie contract without a holdout. But why? The FO offered him a new contract at the beginning of the year and he said "No." Why? Because he didn't want to be here anymore. So he had one of his best seasons, trying out for a new team, not the Panthers. Like I said that's fine. But Minter is trying to spin it, in that he did the honorable thing by not holding out. And in my opinion, that's not true.
