Peppers Stands Up and Speaks Up to Teammates

Seems that Julius Peppers has seen enough of the losing, and stood up and gave a speech to his teammates about it:

Julius Peppers doesn’t say much and he’ll never be misconstrued as a rah-rah type of guy. So when he does talk, people listen. Such was the case before Carolina’s game against Tampa Bay on Oct. 18. According to teammates, the normally quite and somewhat recluse Peppers stepped out of character and stood up before all of his teammates and delivered an inspiring speech, challenging everyone on the roster to look in the mirror and really see what they’re made of. “That was on of the better talks that I’ve heard on a player talk day since I’ve been here,” said linebacker Na’il Diggs. “It was like, ‘Wow.’ Especially coming from Pep.”
