Richardson: Heartbroken in more ways than one

I know it won't happen, but I'd really like to see Peppers wake up to reality, and see what he is leaving behind. Jangler was right in saying that Richardson is class act, and we all know it. Many other owners are no where near his level. I don't even think he was in the wrong calling on Peppers to lead the D. Sure he is a quieter guy, but not all leaders are born with that instinct. Some are forced into that role, and then that in itself motivates them to not let down their team. Pep could have done this if he really wanted to. Moving on. The past is just that now though, and the chants will hopefully be for Beason for many, many seasons.

Jangler was quoting Pat Yasinskas.

If it was Buck I bet he would have said it was Buck. I think the anonymity was likely requested.

Very good point. Buck has never been one to hold his tongue.

And to E-9's point, Buck is already very vocally on the record in criticizing Pep. I doubt he would ask for anonymity.

I do wonder if it is a former teammate currently or a teammate who will be former when Pep leaves.

Someone out there will believe that they're different from the others and Peppers will learn to love them and want to retire with them. The NFL is full of tremendous egos that way.

We'll get a good deal.

It's like the other woman who says "yeah, he cheated on her, but he loves me" :rolleyes:

And valid points that neither Buck nor Jenkins would have cared about being anonymous in their comments. Minter or Rucker might, but I don't know if they were in Tampa.

To be fair, that's not out of the question. Look at Randy Moss with New England. :rolleyes:

Like Rayzor always says and I agree...I am not necessarily going to come down hard on the FO because a guy does better somewhere else. I think you have to look at all the circs. With Moss, he was in a horrible situation there, and the new coaching staff didnt want a sulky and disinterested player when they were trying to establish themselves. It was pretty much a necessary trade that both sides benefitted from. I think this one would fit that as well since Pep's agent has made it clear he wants out.

After Brady went down, Moss was overshadowed by Wes Welker. It's been theorized that minus the big name throwing to him, Moss went back to his usual MO.

Buck has been hating on him lately and was in Tampa for the SB.

Lately? Buckner has been hating on Peppers ever since he got on WFNZ, IMO with Buckner he's got a personal issue with Peppers, I don't know if Peppers didn't give him as much respect as he thought he deserved being a Vet and Peppers being a rookie but he clearly doesn't like the guy on a personal level, and because of that I ignore him when he starts talking about Peppers because half of it is bs, and he says the same thing every time.
