First of all, we’ll get this out of the way. We love us some Julie Peppers.
Hottest girl in high school, as my boy Kelly Hayes likes to say.
Doesn’t always show up, but man… when he does decide to show up, it’s a fuckin’ party!
Dude is 36 years old and turns in a season where he plays part time and has 10.5 sacks.
But like the hottest girl in high school, Julie giveth and Julie taketh away.
As such, he admitted he was out of position on Larry Fitzgerald’s 75-yard catch and run on Saturday.
He rushed the passer and vacated his zone, which was the zone Fitz caught and ran in.
Jules is under contract with the Packers for one more season and I think we can all agree. We’d like to have him back for that one season.
“We’ll talk about that when it’s time,” Peppers said.
We’re not sure what there is to talk about.
Guy can still play at a high level. What else is he going to do?
And even if he was totally to blame for the Packers’ loss on Saturday — which he isn’t — we’d still take him back.
