Feels like Julius Peppers number take they money after a lackluster season..even though different situations...
Even though it hurt this year.. If he's cleared carolina should go after him for cheap.. But see other teams paying high for him regardless .. Just my 50cent ..
I think a team in our division would sign him. A guy who can play DE and DT at such a high level?!? There was no obvious pattern of abuse that I've read or heard about. It was a argument. If our ownership wants to continue to rack up PR points instead of Championships so be it. Maybe he's satisfied with the other awards other than the Lombardi. If your truly in the football business you would find a way to work things out with your best players.
As far as $. Yeah, Julius raped them if Hardy walks this could be worse. If you didn't want GH why pay him for a year when you gutted the team from last year. It only would have been smart if you were genuinely making a run for the trophy, like you should be every year anyway.
I'd like the Panthers to be more like the Steeler organization in that they would give more former players and even coaches a shot. I'll give them a ton of credit for hiring Ricky Proehl. I think they missed out on Brentson Buckner though. You got Frank Garcia in town. Rucker. Minter was hanging around. Develop and retain your own talent. For somebody that values loyalty as much as JR I don't see why you don't do that more. Those guys were successful for you and they know what it takes. You've already put millions into these guys why not retain talent that you've trained and built up. Some of those guys went to the SuperBowl.
That's why I like names like Chryst and Zampese. Theyve gone out from the organization had success got some seasoning. Why not?
You sit on a lead if your up two scores. You can't shut down your offense like he does and put it on your defense. You've got to score points in today's NFL. The game has changed. That brand of football will get you beat. Much too conservative.
He could save his job if he gets a competent OC but unless he's made to do so I see more of the same
