Apparently, there has been enough talk of Julius Peppers dogging it that someone finally asked him about it.
Well, guess what. This is the preseason. It doesn’t count. Julius Peppers doesn’t play in the preseason. Julius Peppers will start playing when he feels like it, thank you very much.
That was pretty much what Peppers had to say about that. It was kind of reminiscent of this.
We talking about preseason. Not a game. We talking about preseason.
Here’s Peppers’ actual “practice” quote.
“Preseason is what it is. We’re going to get through that,” Peppers said. “Eventually we’re going to have real games for everybody to talk about.”
Yeah. That’s right!
So let’s a least wait around until the regular season to tell Julie he’s dogging it, okay?
I was really hoping the prospect of being on an actual Super Bowl-caliber team for once would result in a new found work ethic for Julius.
This does not bode well.
I agree especially because he is a veteran the young guys look up to
Lets not dissect everything this guys does. There is not much active tape to view.
Ahhh .. You tell-em hes doggin it,
I’m not telling him.
Personaly I think he knows what he is doing.
The only thing that’s a bigger joke than the preseason is the pro bowl. Lynn Fuckin’ Dickey, quit worrying. 118 carreer sacks, 8 time Pro Bowler & 3 time First Team All Pro and WE TALKIN’ ‘BOUT PRACTICE MANG!!!!
He’s a one-year experiment.
If you’re thinking he’s going to save the Packer defense, you’re misguided. The return of Hayward, coupled with the improvement at safety (Hyde, HHCD, and Richardson) will be the difference.
The dLine will still be a clusterfuck — just look at the Titan game, 2nd period 2:00min. Neal is running around, doing everything except getting a sack. It’s sad — it looks like he’s trying to catch a chicken.
At ILB, Hawk and BJones will still be liabilities — even though they’re supremely qualified at slapping people’s asses and getting them to move over a foot.
Because Thompson so seldom dives into veteran acquisition, much more will be made of the Peppers situation than it warrants.
Peppers will make a play and then disappear for awhile. The coaches will get excited and talk him up to the media while simultaneously chiding him to exert more effort. The end result: Peppers will make a play and then disappear for awhile.
I remember watching Reggie White playing in the preseason. He did absolutely nothing in these games which did not count. He would never put any pressure on a QB and he’d more or less take his time and gently put down a running back. There’s no reason for these veterans to risk their careers getting hurt when they don’t even receive a paycheck (they get paid week by week only during the season).
lets put this in perspective – if JP gets to the QB one time a game- just one- he’ll be the DPOY. If he makes it once every two games – he’ll still have 8 sacks and I’m on board with that. I don’t think anyone that has played opposite CM3 has ever had that many sacks in a season. So, to me, that also means Clay may have more sacks as well, because he won’t always be double and triple teamed..
New position, how can you say he is dogging it? He is still learning.
LOL never actually saw the Iverson video before. Now that ive watched it, I like that guy for the first time ever. JP and M3 shouldnt even play in PS. Dont need no bumps and bruises.
Julius Peppers don’t care. Julius Peppers don’t give a fuck.
Not a game, not the game, not the game that he dies for……. PRACTICE!
Who gives a flying faaaaack?!
