A casual observation on JPep's 3 complete seasons with Chicago...
Year 1: First Team All-Pro (4th highest vote getter for Defensive POY)
Year 2: Elected to Pro-Bowl and led team in sacks (surpassing 100...one of 28 players in history to achieve that mark)
Year 3: Second Team All-Pro and first Bear to have back to back 11 sack seasons since Richard Dent
When in doubt, dr...you should punt.

^^^Not doubting your #'s kaydo...."surpassing 100" what in year 2?

Perhaps TuesdayThursdayMondayFriday should attempt what is commonly referred to as "reading"...
then again, that is obviously asking too much.

^^^I did...missed "w/Bears"....sorry.
Dr. Pwnt Oct 14, 8:29 p.m.
If only the management in todays game cared about what happened 3 seasons ago. Alas, it does not. Unfortunately this is a "what have you done for me lately" industry in which Peppers....has only 8 tackles, 1 sack, and 3 games without a single defensive statistic to show for it.
But like I said earlier, next week provides an excellent opportunity for him to rebound from his woeful first half of the season. I'm sure the Bears would be delighted if he actually started earning his paychecks this season...
Dr. Pwnt Oct 14, 8:45 p.m.
"The lack of pass rush is basically embarrassing at this point. Julius Peppers failed to record a tackle on the night, while Shea McClellin and rookie David Bass each made two tackles."
Outplayed by a rookie? For the second time this year? Ouch.
Bass has almost half of Peppers' stats on the season despite only playing in 3 games. If only former NC State coach Marc Trestman had more players like David Bass, who don't take entire parts of the season off and take up less than a tenth in salary cap space, he might be able to get a decent pass rush.

dear punt dr...
JPep = 2nd Team All Pro LAST season.
Dr. Pwnt Oct 14, 9:01 p.m.
This ain't LAST season, katard. Do try and keep it current.
Back on topic (seeing as some on here only like to talk about the way things USED to be)....
"Peppers still looks a step slow, and has not been quick to adjust when he's been beaten on his initial move all season, and Thursday night provided several more examples of that lack of second-chance push that has become his calling card this year."
Hopefully the big fella can regain that step and actually be an asset to his team, unlike the first half of the season..

Biggest waste of money ever, him and Mario Williams anyways. Dude gets busted for PED use his first season in the league and without the juice he just aint that good.

dr. punt wants to talk current but floods this thread with his references of past dates/times/years...
From pg 1 of this thread: "Peppers hasn't been the same since his dear old alma mater threw him under the bus, then backed over him last August (2012)..." (and brings up transcript references from 1999)
From pg 2: "The Bears may have thought they were getting a "likely Hall of Famer" (JPep began his career with Chicago in 2010...making All Pro and/or Pro Bowl all 3 completed years)
From pg 3: "I loved him when he played for the Panthers" (like when he was Defensive POY)
From pg 5: "what have you done for me lately" (as in the just completed season...All Pro)
