Although pretty much everyone else is looking for his replacement in the Green Bay Packers starting lineup, safety Charlie Peprah has some other ideas about where he’ll be in 2012.
“My goal personally is to go out there and try to have a Pro Bowl season,” Peprah said. “Just be a leader on the defense, leader on the team and lead by example and help turn this defense around. We went from a top 5 defense to the last in the league. So I’m looking to help turn it around.”
Peprah made the comment while on the Packers Tailgate Tour during a stop in Sturgeon Bay.
That’s a lofty goal for a guy most consider the weak link of the Packers secondary. Although he had plenty of help stinking things up in the defensive backfield in 2011, Peprah certainly did his share. He missed 12 tackles and gave up eight plays of 20-plus yards.
Peprah will have competition for the position once held down by Nick Collins, this season. The Packers drafted Jerron McMillian in the fourth round and have youngsters M.D. Jennings and Anthony Levine looking to take the next step. There’s also the possibility the Packers could move cornerback Charles Woodson to safety.
It seems like Peprah better worry about keeping his job before he worries about the Pro Bowl.
He better not plan on going to the Pro bowl, that’s the week the Pack will be practicing for the Superbowl.
He means with the Vikings. The worlds shittiest franchise will continue its policy of building its team via the Green Bay waiver wire. On that team of turds he may just indeed look like a probowl player.
Either that is the scenario, or he is talking about actual bowling.
I am guessing Woodson will be all over the field with Jennings and McMillan getting plays in there as well. I am excited to see how all of the competition will play out.
His season was very up and down. At points it was open season on him & Tramon. That San Diego game was a rollercoaster
Making a big deal out of nothing. What do you want him to say? I’m looking to be a mediocre player this year?
LOL. Right? “Hey folks, my job is on the line and I like making millions. How about I don’t stink up the joint this year on some plays. If I talk like I give a fuck maybe the bosses will think I’m interested in being good at my job.
I wonder what his goals were last year
That is a good attitude.
Unfortunately, we need to see it on the field.
What i saw on the field was Peprah’s missed “shoulder” tackle of Hakeem Nicks 66 yard td catch. Wanna feel ill? Watch that lame attempt of a no hands failed tackle. (in a playoff game no less) If i was TT, i would have called down to the sidelines and released him right then and there.
