Well you saw him play here in carolina, easily blocked by a tightend. Just tell Cam not to run towards him.

Peppers has played some of the best ball of his career since landing in Chicago.......he was better than Charles Johnson last year (despite what a sack stat column shows). Peppers dominated games last season like I have never seen him do here. And that ain't a knock of Johnson, he was a beast.

The scary issue is the have some new kid at DT causing issues.....and that make it easier for Peppers to cause issues.

I have seen Pep play a lot of good games against Vick (atl and philly). He scares me this game......it is almost like he finds motivation when these athetic QBs take the field.

I recall Pep having a decent game the last time he faced Carolina.

Peppers couldn't beat out Gross last year when we faced them (that is why his biggest plays against us came agaist our back up RT), and this year we have a healthy Otah on the right side. I really think Otah will maul Peppers, but that is just me. It will be interesting.

Peppers was the best 4-3 DE in all of football last season. It it sounds as if he is getting some DT play.....and that is scary.

I see the Pep hate still blinds some of us. Only thing Otah does is maul people in the run game.....and we are now a passing team.

I'm glad he's gone. He's a freak athlete, but that was too much money for a guy who shows up for 8 games a year. Better off giving that money to Charles Johnson, Jon Beason.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
