I don't think that the cap number of 16.7 is that big of a deterrent. We spent 14 million and change on him in 2008 after a 2 1/2 sack performance in 2007. Why wouldn't we be willing to spend 2 million more than last year after a 14 1/2 sack pro-bowl year in 2008.

As for Peppers playing poorly in 2009. Why would he do that? He knows that if he slacks off then every negative thing said about him would be true. Plus if no one will pony up 2 1st round draft picks after his year in 2008, why would they pony up that much with less production?

He knows that to keep his hopes of leaving intact, he has to have another career year this year as well. He saw how Gross increased his worth after being franchised in 2008 and knows he can do it as well.

Will he go? Very possible. But it won't likely be to the team of his choice or for as much money as he will make in Carolina. So unless he settles for less than what he wants, he will likely be here next year disgruntled or not.

Give the win in the Hangartner discussion to Chandler.

Still waiting to see how the Peppers saga plays out.

This topic title just reminds me of that knife fight in the Michael Jackson - Beat it music video.
