Please forgive my Def Leppard reference. I’ve been trapped inside my house since the latest SnOMG has hit ( I think I got about 12 inches), so I may be working on some version of jungle fever. Again, I digress.
Steve Serby of the New York Post wants Julius Peppers in blue.
It doesn’t take much to go from pretender to contender in one year in the NFL. The Giants took the first step toward restoring the pride of Big Blue by replacing overmatched defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan with the fiery Perry Fewell. That was a mere appetizer.
Peppers would complete the meal.
Imagine a younger Michael Strahan getting after Tony Romo and Donovan McNabb. Peppers, who is 30 years old, is coming off a 10 ½-sack season
This is all predicated on Osi Umenyiora not wanting to stay in New York, looking instead for a place that guarantee him a starting spot. So, let’s get hypothetical here. If Osi leaves, do you want Julius Peppers? My answer: Hell yes. Listen, Peppers is an unbelievable pass rusher. He would instantly ignite a sagging defensive line. And, as Serby mentions, Perry Fewell would help to motivate the sometimes lazy Peppers. It seems like a match made in heaven.
So, I ask you. Pour some Peppers on the Giants defensive line?
