    Julius Peppers is my favorite football player of all time, I'm glad that he came home to Carolina to finish his career, and to reinstate his relationship with his home state team and fans.

    Peppers is one of the greatest defensive players in NFL history, he's a game wrecking freak of nature that has made more game changing plays than nearly any other defensive player in league history. He wasn't just a pass rush specialist in his prime, he could set the edge and stop the run, take on double teams to free up teammates to make plays, pressure and sack the QB, force fumbles, knock down passes, get interceptions, block kicks, etc.

    But Peppers hasn't always been appreciated by the fans or the media, unlike his teammates, coaches, and front office personnel, the fans and media have said that Peppers "takes plays off" or "doesn't try hard" or "he's not a leader" all of which couldn't be further from the truth. Peppers was tagged with that unjust label coming out of college and yet it simply isn't true. Hopefully in his second go around with the Panthers the fans can appreciate what they have in Julius, one of the greatest players to ever step onto an NFL field. Here's to hoping he'll ride into the sunset, whenever he decides to retire, an NFL champion who helped bring the Panthers their first Lombardi trophy in franchise history, much like Lebron James did with his home state Cleveland Cavaliers. But regardless, there should be a bust with his name on it waiting in Canton 5 years after his retirement, when he enters the Hall of Fame on the first ballot. #90 should be retired by the Panthers organization and a statue of him placed outside of Bank of America Stadium, recognizing his stature as the greatest Carolina Panther in team history.
