VIDEO: Pick six by Green Bay Packers linebacker Julius Peppers earns him award

A week ago the Green Bay Packers put a historic beating on their division rivals the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Night Football. How bad was it? So bad that the Packers’ playoff odds jumped 16 percent according to Nate Silver, and the Packers now lead the league in passer rating differential (as they did in 2010.) One guy who made a serious mark on the game was linebacker Julius...

Peppers Has Been A Bargain

Julius Peppers isn’t the disruptive force he was five years ago, but he’s been Green Bay’s best linebacker through five games. That’s pretty impressive when you consider the former North Carolina star is in his 13th season and plays the same position as Clay Matthews, the team’s perennial All-Pro. So much for the notion that GM Ted Thompson overpaid for Peppers. At $8.5M...

Peppers: Not sacking Aaron Rodgers changed my career

Julius Peppers believes he would still be a member of the Chicago Bears if he had sacked Aaron Rodgers in the final game of last season. Peppers nearly brought down the Green Bay Packers quarterback on fourth and 8.  But fullback John Kuhn chipped Peppers, allowing Rodgers to hit Randall Cobb for a 48-yard game-winning touchdown at Soldier Field. “I was pretty close. I was pretty...

Packers Should Let Julius Peppers Stick to Pass Rushing

After two games there has been a lot of talk and a lot of questions about the play of Green Bay’s big free-agent acquisition Julius Peppers. Through two games, the ultra-talented Peppers has just eight tackles and no sacks and at times has looked a little bit lost. That is because the Packers have tried to play him at outside linebacker, when it’s clear he needs to stick to...

Claudia Sampedro is who Peppers will be eating bratwurst with after the games this year, so I’m sure that will make the Green Bay trade easier to stomach for the big man. Just so you know who she is, here some of her best pics floating...
