    About this time a year ago Carolina Panthers linebacker Jon Beason was calling out teammate Julius Peppers publicly, raising an issue of Peppers� perceived �intensity.ï&i
    quest;½

    Now he would be very, very happy if Peppers left any intensity back in Chicago when the Bears go to Charlotte to play Peppers� former team.

    �I think Pep is going to go down as one of the best ever,� Beason said. �Truly a specimen and he�s an addition to any football team, any defense. The difference is, now that I�m playing outside [linebacker], that things are more clear to me how important it is having a big dominant D-end.�

    Indeed you sometimes don�t appreciate what you had �til it�s gone. So it is with Peppers and the Panthers from whom he�s gone now after eight seasons in Carolina.

    Beason, suffering through an 0-3 start then and an 0-4 one now, subsequently explained his comments about Peppers� made to a Charlotte radio station. He has gained an even greater appreciation of what Peppers was facing week after week.

    �I was able to witness it first hand for three years the different schemes Pep had to deal with every Sunday as far as sliding offensive linemen his way and backs chipping in before they went out,� Beason said.

    �It was tough on him but if you�re playing opposite him, you should definitely be excited about it because he will definitely command that attention.�

    Some players take plays off. Pep would rather take seasons off. He played when he wanted to for Bunting, quit on the Panthers and now da Bears.

    Wow.

    How utterly embarrassing...

    And

    Rather typical, of a pansy.

    "In October, one of his teammates made headlines when he told a Charlotte radio station he wanted more out of the former North Carolina standout. "The pressure is what you want to see ... the intensity," said linebacker Jon Beason. At the time, Peppers had one sack and the Panthers were 0-3."

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/ross_tucker/02/19/Peppers/

    Found this quote to be quite telling as well...

    "Here's hoping, both for Peppers' sake and the sake of his soon-to-be new team, that his next team has vocal leaders capable of getting the best out of Peppers. Clearly, he isn't always capable of getting the best out of himself."

    Again, he takes plays off (or entire games, as is the case with this season), even your own fans admit it. I'm just pointing out that he hasn't performed anywhere near how his team needs him to this season and the amount of cap room he takes up only amplifies it.

    I watched the game and don't agree with fat dumb Biggs

    I think I'm gonna go with the guy who doesn't just "watch the game" but studies it on film. Which, in this case, would be Biggs.

    Very similar contracts, but

    ...Mario's paycheck >>> Peppers' paycheck.

    End of story.

    It seems Phil Simms was right...

    http://www.chicagobears.com/news/article-1/Trestman-gaining-confidence-in-depleted-defense/25e789a3-13db-4925-8a21-d706af0c3979

    Of course, not all the defensive stars in Sunday's win were inexperienced players. Veteran end Julius Peppers recorded a career-high 12 tackles along with two sacks and two tackles-for-loss.

    "He's obviously gaining strength and momentum," Trestman said. "Really his energy level was consistent throughout the game. We all had a sense during the week that this was going to be a game that he was going to turn it up. It was good to see.

    "We've chatted in my office a couple of times, just to catch up on things. I just feel like he's got a lot of pride in this football team. He doesn't want to let it down. He's done everything he can to get himself ready and I think we've managed his practice time very well.

    "Mel [Tucker] and Mike Phair have managed his practice time very well to make sure that at this stage of his career his best is on Sunday. He's going to know what to do and how to do it. But he's ready to give his best on Sunday and we got a little bit of that [against the Ravens]."

    Peppers is still as dominant as he ever

    Keep telling yourself that. Meanwhile, according to the facts...

    See prior above posts, and I'll throw in that I overheard Phil Simms say this past Sunday during the Bears Ravens game that he talked to Peppers and Peppers told him he feels much more rejuvenated on Sundays lately because he hasn't been practicing every day and wearing his body down during the process. I look forward to seeing Peppers dominate the rest of the season, and make his 9th Pro Bowl at seasons end.
