Julius Peppers Announces Retirement

Recommended Posts

remember when peppers made sure we couldn't trade him by listing the only teams he'd sign a contract extension with and stating he wanted to play OLB in a base 3-4?

then he went to none of the teams he listed and played in the same defense?

good times.

I remember those days :/

His work ethic really went to poo around 2007. You’d also be lying if you said he still wasn’t one of the best players on the field even with half assed effort 

in 2007? he absolutely was not. 

but beason always flashed more on the field than peppers did. but sure peppers was better than the tyler braytons and kemoeatus of the world. 

to be fair, if you go to the bears forums right now this thread is probably even harsher on him. he's generally considered a massive bust there.

My memory on it is a little foggy but I remember some fans souring up on him the year after we fell short of making the super bowl

mills, smith, nor davis ever took a whole season off to force a trade.

No, instead Thomas Davis was a drama queen who got the best GM in panthers history fired. He went back on his word on every single thing he said over a 4 year span. Steve Smith demanded trades and punched teammates. He threw rookies like keary Colbert, jimmy clausen, and cam under the bus. He also went on a rampage of bashing the team for a couple of years. I have nothing bad to say about Sam mills.

spar me on the Julius peppers leaving Charlotte story. It didn’t help when morons with half the talent like Jon beason would go on local radio and throw Julius under the bus. Or when creepy sexual harassing owners blindsides Julius publicly demanding he be more of a vocal leader when that isn’t the type of person he is.

As I recall, his departure came after Beason and someone else kind of called him out on the radio the day after a crazy performance by Jared Allen.

This is accurate. Beason is a moron. He went on wfnz and started talking about how peppers should be mor like Allen.

I don't think the Panthers were going to bring it back if he did.

Writing was on the wall when you saw they weren't bringing Thomas Davis back.

I knew when Davis wasnt being signed, Peppers was gone too. This is the year of the Veterans not returning.

Fighting back tears watching that video. I fell in love with the Panthers as a ten year old kid, and the first season I can actually remember was Peps first. That Super Bowl run in 03 is one of the best sports memories I’ll ever have. I don’t know the NFL without Julius Peppers. Thank you, number 90. God bless

    • A team might have a lot more injuries than the opposing team. Keeps a fair balance.
    • Its purpose is to ensure a level playing field. Say you have everyone active but Team A has five players injured while Team B only has one. Team A now has a perceived advantage because they technically have a deeper roster. Forcing both teams to sit 8 players is meant to nullify that possibility.
    • It all comes down to Rivera.   Are the Panthers good enough to go on the road and win a game against a so-so team that sucked last year and has a rookie QB in his third ever game?  Yes. Will there be any sign that this coaching staff understands how to do that? That is the question. Backs against the wall, staring down 0-3 and the increasing likelihood that if this thing goes south in a hurry heads will roll... I’d like to think we’ll come out 1-2, but... I still think the Panthers will go into AZ underprepared.  They will underperform.  Maybe it will be close at some point, but I just see the little mistakes adding up to some truly unfortunate momentum changes in this game. On the road, every mistake is magnified. AZ has nothing to lose and will be relaxed and focused.  Panthers will start out looking like they could win this thing, then there will be lapses in focus and suddenly AZ has the ball in good field position. Plus...and I mean this for real...the best narrative for the NFL is the rise of Murray and the decline of the Panthers.  I find that games like this often favor which ever story is the best narrative for the corporate interest.  What helps the NFL more: Kyle Allen leads a mediocre Panthers over and even more mediocre Cardinals, OR Murray balls out and puts up a highlight reel as the lowly Panthers trip over their own stupid feet? The second one. Probably another grinding loss. Panthers 20 Cardinals 27
