Packers tackles vs. Peppers

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

Here's an interesting stat via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Veteran Packers tackles Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher have allowed Julius Peppers three sacks and a forced fumble in five previous meetings.

Here's what Packers offensive line coach James Campen said told the Journal-Sentinel about Peppers:

"He's a darn good football player, there's no question about it." "But the other kid (end Mark Anderson) is a pretty good player, too. He gets up the field. And we have very high regard for (end) Israel (Idonije). The guy plays hard."

Hey guys and Bumsteaders, here's a poem I wrote about
Julius Peppers. Hope you like it.

Julius Peppers picked a peck of pickled peppers;
A peck of pickled peppers Julius Peppers picked;
If Julius Peppers picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Julius Peppers picked?

Peppers, smheppers. When the Bears released Alex Brown, they gave up their best defensive lineman after Peppers. This stupid/cheapskate move has cost them, as no one else is generating any pass rush. Any team can take out any one player if that's all you've got. Peppers might have the worst year of his career if the other linemen don't start putting a lot more pressure on opposing QBs, because he'll be facing double- and triple-teams all season.

Alex Brown may not have faired any better.

Brown was a solid player, especially against the run, but merely an average pass rusher. he averaged about six sacks per season with the Bears, even when Ogunleye and Harris were at their peak.

There is no reason to believe that he would have any sacks, either. In fact, he still doesn't have a sack through three games as a starter with the Saints.

Anderson and Izzy and playing well against the run, which is what Brown would have done.

No evidence Brown would have changed a thing.
