For the millionth time, I just don't get it. Watch him on D in the final stages of The Game. (O)

: I was one that liked to mock Peppers as much as anyone else.

: But...I do think he is very talented. And with the right team, in the right role, I do think he could be a great player.

: Problem is, not sure what that role is.

He doesn't take on blocks. He doesn't break down. His level is high. He is a track guy. Never have I seen a more over-rated player, in any uniform. Watch the Samuel 3rd down play in the 2nd OT. He cuts him off, then does nothing. Had he made Curtis avoid even a driving swipe, that play is a disaster for us. Again, I have never seen a hype machine like this.
