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

    • If they sign the current Cam to a new contract they’re delusional at best 
    • The pessimist view is that Cam is pretty far along in his career to be going through a development process.  The optimistic view is he is already well used to the NFL game, the speed, what to expect from NFL defenses, etc.  That learning curve is not small, and he has already absorbed it. Every running QB (vs. a classic pocket passer) has gone through this to one level or another.  Some make the transition, some don't.  The reason is you want a QB to last 10-15 years. RBs last a lot less.  It is not that they become uninspired, the reason is physical.  Cam (he and his body) is not an exception to this.  This may be especially true with his weight loss.  He can't play like a fullback and run over LBs with the same proficiency when he is 15 lbs. lighter or so. The prototypes for this are Steve Young, Warren Moon, Randall Cunningham, etc.  To one degree or another, they all made the transition from run first to run when it is time to run. But, the question is whether or brain trust has already beaten him up enough that it is simply not possible.  From what we are told and what I have seen, he is capable of doing it if the OL doesn't get him killed again.  But, he could be one injury away from proving me wrong. I have no idea what will happen, only the large number of possibilities of what could.  Put me in the "cautiously optimistic" category.
