OP, man, I follow athletes and enjoy sports as much as the next guy,

but you're like worshipping the dude. Do you realize how weird it is for a grown man (I assume) to be devoting so much time and effort to defending another grown man on a random message board?

meh....he quit. he said he wanted out. he shut them off and whined about getting tagged. it was obvious he quit and wanted to leave. they gave him what he wanted, a year late imo.

and then he turned into a weasel. he couldn't even own up to the fact that when the let him walk, they were just giving him and that lame ass agent of his what he had been bitching for. he had to make it sound like he was open to coming back, but we all know the deal. he quit on his team and wasn't man enough to own it.

Can we hit 20 pages on the topic of the most anti climatic career in franchise history?

They made a last ditch effort, by then it was too late. Regardless, whether Peppers wanted to stay or not really doesn't matter, maybe he felt it was time to move on, maybe he didn't like the fans and media in Carolina talking garbage about him, etc.

http://articles.chic...l-carey-chicago

"I think back in Charlotte, I had been there so long that everybody got used to me. I mean, I got attention there and all that. But out here in Chicago, it feels a lot more genuine.''
Peppers' words and body language imply that his desire to bolt Charlotte wasn't all about leaving Carolina PanthersPosted Image blue behind for the green in Chicago.
"Truth be told, that's really one of the small reasons that I wanted to get out; because everybody knows your business in Charlotte,'' he says. "I wanted to try something different because out here in Chicago, Jordan was here. Pippen was here. They've got Urlacher. They've got hockey. They've got the baseballPosted Image. In Charlotte, it was all about the Panthers.''
Peppers pauses then finishes the thought.
"I live on a small town on the lake, and I mean people would get on their jet skis and just post up in front of my crib, trying to see who was there in my house.''
Peppers' initial impression of his new home is that it mirrors Toronto and New York, his favorite getaways. Here in Chicago, he believes he can live in obscurity.

I used to love the guy and I won't take his game play away, he was great but the way he left really changed my perspective...I still have his jersey and haven't worn it since the off season before he was franchised. I just have that mixed feeling about him, I do think its time to put that jersey to use, RAG bytches

he's worshipping a quitter and a weasel.

and before he or anyone says I'm putting just as much effort or energy into it, I've committed maybe 5 minutes of my time and no further thought than the moments I've spent actually responding to a multitude of links to a ton of crap and quotes and youtube videos that i didn't look at and don't intend to because he deserves as much effort as he put into trying to stay here.

in fact I've given him, this thread, and this peppers hero worshipper more attention than deserved. am i mad? nah....just not going to waste anymore time on this big eared clown.

yeah we all remember julius crying because he was the biggest thing going in charlotte and panthers fans loved him to death. i'm surprised you brought that up considering you posted this several pages back:

The media in Carolina made that crap up about Peppers and some of the stupid fans bought that crap up, I think that is a major reason Peppers left, because he didn't feel appreciated in Carolina.


also you need to read the article because it identifies the "last ditch" offer as being the third one made by the panthers. basically you are stupid and should stop posting.

by the way, it's documented that hurney was trying to sign peppers to an extension as far back as 2007 which was anticipated to make him the highest paid defensive player in the league:

god damn are you getting owned. you're posting peppers' barely coherent doublespeak whereas i'm coming out with archival news articles that are stuffed with hard facts that slaughter your stupid arguments. how embarrassing!

also as for you bringing up the mystery illness in 2007 over and over:

Peppers denied that an illness that sidelined him for much of last year's training camp played a role in his play last season.

"No, I don't think it had lingering effects,'' Peppers said. "I was only sick for maybe two weeks. I will say during that time I lost weight and a little bit of strength and probably a little bit of explosiveness. But during the season, I wasn't sick at all.''

imagine how dumb you would feel if you were making an argument over and over again and then some really smart, handsome guy with a great avatar came up with a quote from the person you were attempting to speak for that 100% refuted everything you had said up to that point. wouldn't that be awful!

Peppers doesn't like to make excuses, he did miss a lot of training camp in 2007 and suffered from an illness and lost weight and strength. And just because his sack numbers were down doesn't mean he didn't have an impact, he had 3 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, 1 interception, 5 passes defensed, and 2 blocked kicks in 2007 while only playing in 14 games that season. Regardless though as stated in a prior post, Peppers isn't the only player to ever have a bad season.

Here are just a few players who have had bad seasons.... there are many more.
