Peppers = Phony

Wow. The Gaston Gazette is not taking a light stance when it comes to the about face that Julius Peppers made when he quickly said he would have no issues with coming to a long-term deal with the Panthers.

They wrote a rather scathing take on the subject in today’s edition:

Peppers’ ploy to get out of Charlotte backfired – badly. The decision to go public with his feelings has turned out to be a PR nightmare as now he has to swallow those words. The idea that Peppers may now consider signing a long-term contract with the Panthers — wow, he suddenly loves playing for Carolina! — makes him look like an even bigger phony.

Granted, the Panthers twisted his arm and ultimately he had no choice but to sign the tender.

But the question remains: Can this marriage work when deep down we all know one side doesn’t want to be in it?

Remember, Peppers made it clear after the season he didn’t want to play for the Panthers ever again, that he’d “maxed out” his potential with the team.
