To me there is a big difference with older free agents not based on how much they have left nut in how much they still want it. Bruce Smith was hanging on to get the sack record, not going to revitalize his career. More recently Osi U went to Atlanta to play near his home, not to show the Giants they made a mistake. Steve Smith wants to shove it down the Panthers' throats. Peppers seems, anyway to be more like the latter. I think he genuinely wants to compete and see what the challenge of a new defense brings.

In a year or two he may have nothing left but I bet he gives a short term boost much like Alan Page did going to Chicago years ago.

What I see that Capers has now is a group of guys that will allow him to pull all stops with his schemes.

Daniels has been a blessing and now has two years under his belt. Datone Jones obviously is just learning the system but now has that first year behind him. Time to cut him loose. Jolly will hopefully be back but even he hadn't been in this system for years.

Now add Peppers into the mix.

The few interior Dlinemen that can rush the QB have been young along with OLB's that have missed far to many games being replaced by....young guys. Add Neal in there taking over a new position as well. This has had to put the clamps on many things Capers would have liked to be able to do.

With more experience and adding Peppers in there we are going to see all kinds of different ways Capers will come up with pressure. I can see this D consistently coming up with sacks and pressure in a wide variety of ways because there is finally the experience there that Capers needed to put his trust in.

This is going to be fun to watch.

It's an improvement over last year. That's the big thing to me.

That's one UFA, Ted. Don't stop yet.

Yup, and any improvement in the pass rush should have a positive impact in the secondary as well. Our defense should be better. Of course they were so bad last year they could get better this year and still suck.
I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.
