The McNair pickup was crazy based on how much we paid him, not the pickup itself. The same could be said for Willis. Neither guy had people beating down the door for their services, but we overpaid for them IMO.......but thats water under the bridge at this point.

I have to disagree with you on the best days are behind him quote. He is 29 just had the best season of his career. He still has 3 to 4 more years of preduction remaining.

Holy canoli, Peppers best days are far from gone, y'all. The man had 14.5 sacks in 2008, his best season total ever (only 1.5 sacks fewer than our beloved J. Harrison for gosh sakes). Compare that with any of our Steeler DEs. 40 solo tackles, not his best year there but close. He'll just turn 29 tomorrow so he'll certainly play at least a few more seasons.

Now to be sure, the Steelers don't have to have him, don't have space for him, but to say Peppers' best days are behind him is very premature and reckless in my opinion. He had an off year in 2007 but came back strong this year. The man is a weapon and far from overrated. In fact I say he is underrated. I hate the Cowboys too much to even think of Julius ending up there. Steeler fan should hope he stays in the NFC if he ain't coming to da 'burgh.

Peppers is not a Steeler type of player, as great as he is. He is a 4-3 end not a 3-4 end.

He would move to OLB, he's way to small to play end in a 3-4.

Here I thought the "(Insert name of overpriced disgruntled player/FA here) would look great in the B&G if he comes cheap" threads would at least wait until our season's over.

How was I pwned? My post makes sense and is truthful. They overpaid for both players, not that they weren't/aren't any good. When McGahee wants to play, he has a great game.......as you'll hopefully see tomorrow....

Default Re: Peppers?

Why would we even be interested?

We have the reigning Defensive Player of the Year at one OLB spot, and a future DPOY at the other.

We don't need Peppers. He wants to go to a 3-4 team and play OLB? He can go to Cleveland, and they can go through the growing pains as he adjusts to rushing from a two-point stance and droping into pass coverage.
