Peppers was selected as a Team Captain by his peers

Many of you had much to say about his affect on the locker room and how he would do once he returned.  Thoughts?

I'm calling for a recount.

Its good to know that the guys in the locker room know that there's a business side to football and can respect what he was trying to accomplish, despite his haphazard method of trying to accomplish it.


"This is blood for blood and by the gallon. These are the old days, the bad days, the all-or-nothing days. They're back! There's no choice left. And I'm ready for war."

Re: Peppers was selected as a Team Captain by his peers

I think it's garbage-straight up. These guys probably respect him more for holding his ground and making that $$ than anything. At the end of the day they aren't like us. They don't live and die with every play, every game, every season like we do. I think most guys get respect if they are thuggish, or different just like it was on the playground. Some don't but the majority does. They probably were smiling and saying, "Pep just handlin his business". Unfortunately what it also says is, "Well if I want that type of payday, I'll just act like he did". I'm getting off topic here but my point is this...I think he is getting more respect for the money he got rather than his love for the team, franchise and the fans.

I think they are impressed with what he does on the field and how he has brought along Brown and see his hand in JOhnson's development too.  Pep is a leader by example and that is what they respect.

You really think he acts like a leader? I mean he ain't vocal on or off the field. He didn't embrace the role of stepping up and leading the team when JRich called on him when Minter/Rucker retired. He didn't put the team first and suck it up to do what's best for the franchise/city of Charlotte. These, IMO are not characteristics of a leader. Great work ethic=YES. Strong on the field=YES. Pro Bowl player=YES. His inconsistency sickens me though. I guess he has heart but to me the bridge was burned when he said blatantly, "I don't want to play with this team". I would trip him in practice if I was on his team...

He is a leader by example as Harris, Beason, Brown, Johnson, and Brayton have all attested to this off seaosn alone.  Others have said similar things through out his time here.  Just the work he puts in alone.

If I had to guess the team is looking at it as though, he may not have gotten what he wanted but he came back and is working hard. It shows he is a team player and not just all about himself. I was one of those guys who bashed him when he wanted to go. I got over that though. While he is here, if he plays hard for us I want him here, I'm sure the team feels the same way...
