    I've watched him specifically, and he's not playing at full speed. It's like he's playing bitter because of Lovie.

    Watch him play for a quarter, or the whole game... He's dogging it!

    Don't come at me with paper stats. Yes, his stats are average, and have a couple of peaks, but he's not Peppers like we know him.

    Where is his VETERAN leadership? He should be more vocal. He's winded and quiet..

    I think he's done!

    A lot of us have been saying that all year. He is not playing well.

    Give me all the double team talk you want. He has been double teamed his whole career and excelled.

    How do you play the cap and his contract based on the lack of production?

    I didn't see a lot of double teaming today. I don't remember it much last week either.

    I see more and more players dogging it, but I expect peppers to do more.

    I've been saying this all year. After this season, they need to dump Peppers and McClellin to bring in some new blood. And play CornWash, damn it!

    not being effective is one thing but not giving full speed, and its obvious is another.

    how can you play at half speed and get away with it? Clearly the staff sees this??!?!

    Players, even the best players, get old. Peppers has been playing injured, and in this particular game he was playing injured according to the injury report this week. Nagging injuries seem to mount up with old players, so maybe this is one contributing factor.

    Players can't help getting old. Walter Payton, Butkus, Sayers, hell all of them eventually got old. I don't believe he's not giving 100%. It's just that his 100% isn't what it was when he was younger and injury free.

    So excuses are

    Week 1-injured
    Week 2- sick
    Week 3- sick
    Week 4- double teamed
    Week 5- Old

    Time to stop the excuses. He has been a dog this year
