    Seems kato is having trouble coming to terms that Peppers is simply an overpaid DE who has been outplayed by a rookie (drafted out of the SEVENTH round) in his last two starts. Stats below...

    David Bass (Salary - $405,000) - 3 tackles
    Overpaid DE (Salary - $9,900,000)- ZERO defensive statistics

    But hey, maybe he'll get himself turned around and at least make an effort to show up on the stat sheet. Then again, maybe not...

    JPep will be just fine.

    He could buy and sell every ABCER (and their downtrodden, long-suffering families) several times over...whether he plays another down, or not.

    Yep: JPep gone be fine. Do a backflip into your gigantic pool of CASH, JPep..loloLol

    another observation on dr. punt...

    If imitation is the highest form of flattery, kato is flattered to the point of giddiness.

    Back on topic.

    Regarding active players, JPep is widely recognized as a sure-fire future NFL Hall of Famer...

    First-Ballot Locks: Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning

    The only reason these players aren't in the hall already is due to some silly rule about needing to be retired before induction. Lousy technicalities. They have the rings, they have the records, they play the most valuable position in the game - I wouldn't be surprised if the Hall already had busts in the basement, just waiting for these guys. Let's move on.

    Practicing Their Speech: Reggie Wayne, Tony Gonzalez, Julius Peppers, Champ Bailey

    Players of this caliber occasionally have to wait a year - see Michael Strahan not making it in this year - but they shouldn't be kept waiting too long. Gonzalez is arguably the best tight end of all time, and helped redefine the position into what it is today. Wayne's candidacy will be helped by a productive season or two post-Manning, helping prove that his success was due to more than just his quarterback. As for Bailey and Peppers, they've combined to miss five pro bowls in seventeen seasons, and are moving up the career interception and sack lists - they'll both be top-25 by the time they retire, with Peppers having a shot at cracking the top-5 sack list. They'll make it in without too much trouble.

    What happened to kato accusing Dr Pwnt of bringing up Peppers' being thrown under the bus by UNC or bringing up issues with Peppers' transcript? LOLOLOL seems kato has been caught up in his own lie.

    Back on topic (since katard can't seem to keep his mind off the Dr)..

    "Peppers' ineffectiveness in Week-1 against a backup left tackle (Anthony Collins) could have been due to the fact that he took just 14 snaps all of the preseason and was still not quite in football shape, but in the end he finished with no quarterback sacks, hurries or even a tackle against a backup."

    If only being a future candidate for the Hall of Fame could have helped him notch a tackle against a BACK UP this year. Alas, it did not.

    The topic = Julius Peppers

    The headline = He is a shoo-in for the NFL Hall-of-Fame.

    The substory = Approaching 34, he is winding up a stellar career.

    (and if you read between the lines, dr. punt's flattery of kato continues)

    LOLOLOLOL what's wrong kato, don't feel like addressing the lie I just caught you in?

    Back on topic (JPep's production, or lack there of, this season)...

    Julius Peppers, who will turn 34 at this season's end, has struggled mightily through the team's first six games - registering a combined eight tackles and one sack. He hasn't appeared on the stat sheet for two straight games.

    In other words, the Bears have paid a player over $1 million the last two games and he hasn't even appeared on the stat sheet. What's going on with this overpaid DE?

    Sure hope he can turn it around.

    nor can they stay on topic, apparently.

    So lets try and help it get back on course...

    *Where is Julius Peppers? The 33-year-old defensive end is off to a quiet start. With Chicago's defensive line banged-up, the Bears need more from him.

    I'd say ESPN is asking a valid question here, where is Peppers? Because he definitely hasn't been on the stat sheet the past few weeks

    If I was JPep, I'd be spending a fair amount of time with my financial planner and my accountants.

    Sitting on a fat wad of cash like he is after so stellar many years in the League, he's going to need some help determining how to spend/invest it all, provide for his family for generations to come, etc. etc.

    And all of this has what to do with Peppers not carrying his weight this season?

    Back on topic...

    Julius Peppers posted another dud last week with no tackles. Peppers still demands a double team, but he is no where near the player he was when the Bears acquired him in 2010.

    I'd say that's pretty obvious. The fact that your "star" defensive player is posting multiple duds is a problem. Not really sure how anyone can disagree with that.

  • uncpwnsyou Oct 16, 2013

    Yep.

    JPep gone be Just Fine.

    I hear his house was featured on "Cribs" a few weeks ago. He probably finds enough spare change in his sofa cushions to buy Dr. Punt and his entire family several times over rofl.

    JPep rollin', son! (whether he plays another down of football, or not.)

    It took you all day to come back with THAT response? Bahahahah you could've just said "yes, Dr Pwnt, you are correct in your assertion that Mr. Peppers has been greatly overpaid for his efforts this season." Or you could've just said nothing at all...

    Back on topic (since uncpwnsitself can't keep from blabbering about another man's "crib")...

    It's been a rough year for the highest-paid player on the Bears.

    Julius Peppers, who will turn 34 at this season's end, has struggled mightily through the team's first six games - registering a combined eight tackles and one sack. He hasn't appeared on the stat sheet for two straight games.

    "Listen, we all have a job to do," Peppers told the Sun-Times on Monday. "We all get paid to do our job. And when you're not doing it, you've got to be held accountable."


    At least somebody else in this equation realizes how vastly underwhelming his performance has been this year...

  • Dr. Pwnt Oct 16, 2013

    Well, since you brought it up...

    "Asked one-by-one, Trestman said cornerback Charles Tillman was held out of practice Wednesday, but is "expected to play" Sunday against the Redskins. Tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) was also held out, but did some side work and went through walk-throughs. Defensive tackle Stephen Paea (toe) and linebacker James Anderson "were out there" and "they look good."

    But what wasn't mentioned was the status of defensive end Julius Peppers, who did not practice, despite being dressed in full pads inside the Walter Payton Center during the portion of practice open to the media."


    That doesn't sound good. However, I have full faith that if anyone will get Peppers back on track, it'll be ex-Wolfpacker Marc Trestman....

    For the first time in three weeks, Peppers actually decided to make an appearance on the stat sheet. While he registered 7 tackles (3 solo), Peppers' overall play was underwhelming yet again. The Redskins pretty much had their way with him...

    @Redskins - #Redskins RB @Trey_Deuces rumbles 21 yards for the first down! He pushes DE Julius Peppers backward for the final 5 yards. #HTTR

    @AdamHoge - Alfred Morris just straight bulldozing Julius Peppers down the field.

    @Rich_Campbell - Bears lost every block on the front side of that TD run. Started with Pro Bowl LT winning against Julius Peppers.

    @RealMikeWilbon - First Julius Peppers then Peanut Tillman looking inept on that series...long time since Bears D looked this helpless....

    @b_mccaffrey - My favorite Bear since he arrived, Julius Peppers, has become just a guy.

    Though he is still the biggest waste of money on the Bears roster, it was an improvement. It's important he keeps improving each week and with a bye next week, hopefully Peppers can take some apparent much needed time off and be more productive when they return.

    "Corey Wootton is a maximum effort guy. He is putting it all on the line every week, despite playing out of position at defensive tackle, but he needs help. Julius Peppers was around the ball more in Week 7 (seven tackles), but where are the impact plays? Where are the sacks? Where are the forced fumbles?"

    ESPN makes a great point, Peppers simply isn't producing. They need more impact players on the DL....

    "But with limited salary-cap space, general manager Phil Emery isn't in a position where he can do much tinkering with the roster."

    And who's taking up the most salary cap space? None other than the underperforming Julius Peppers...
