I wouldn't be suprised if our 6th round pick this year has a promising career on the other side of the ball.

He had character concerns and tbh they have shown a few times. He's a ticking time bomb. So far he's only blown up Drew Brees and Matt Ryan.

 

And Carson Palmer

If peppers had half the tenacity and fire of Hardy... What could he have been?

 

He could have been Greg Hardy.

I liked what Dwan Edwards said...

"When you first meet him, you think to yourself, 'hmmm, he might be a little off'. But after you've had the chance to get to know him and work with him, then you say 'yeah, he's a little off' :unsure:

Silly post, Peppers is far more talented and that should not even be up for discussion, Hardy's drive is what makes him special, Peppers pure athleticism and talent is was made him special.

Take Jordan Poyer this year for example. One of the best corners in the nation, projected anywhere from the late first to early third, was coming off an injury and had concerns, and ends up going undrafted or something.


Yup. Poyer is gonna be a steal for the Eagles.

Hurney sucked but I will give him credit here. Sure a 6th isn't any risk and he was probably bpa but to some extent the Panthers had faith in him.

A player with character concerns does not work out often, but when it does the players are beasts on the field. You just pray they don't fug up and do something like kill themselves on a motorcycle.

Hardy is more athletic than you think he is. He's was the first guy down the field as a gunner on ST. He may not have his pure speed but if he's 8/10's of what  Peppers raw talent is then he could still end up being better than him. His mentality and is drive is far more valuable than Peppers ability to pick up 3 sacks every other 3 weeks against garbage teams.

The big difference between Peppers and Hardy is the want to. Peppers could've easily dominated against any team he wanted to, he just didn't always have the drive. I don't think Hardy has anywhere near the same amount of physical ability, know-how, talent, etc, that Peppers had. But, what he lacks there he makes up for in constantly going 110%, something Peppers never knew how to do.

The draft is filled with talented players who drop for all kinds of reasons. That's why the day after the draft every fan is convinced his team got half a dozen guys who "could have" been 1st rounders. Most of the times these players are scrubs but sometimes you get a Hardy.

please for the sake of public health please shut up, your stupid is contagious and we don't need it spreading to anyone else.

Trying to argue at this point that Hardy is better then Peppers is mind boggling consider Peppers first season(and not even peppers top 3 seasons) by itself was better then anything Hardy's done to date.

Only way I can figure you even trying to reason this is if you were a kid in peppers early years with us and just don't know better.
