    Being in Carolina I see all their games. He the best in the NFC in my mind. The Panthers have underachieved as a team this year except for his play.
    How would you compare Seymour to him ?

    they play 2 different types of DE..3-4 DE eats up blockers and is a lot bigger..4-3 ends are usually pass rushers and smaller


    Seymour: 310 pounds
    Peppers: 285 pounds


    most 3-4 DEs are built like DTs..between 295-320 pounds

    4-3 ends are 265-285 with speed

    cant really compare them..seymour would be a DT in a 4-3

    Peppers is a beast however..best DL in league..and then Seymour behind him

    I know they play a little different on defense.Peppers uses his speed. I heard he was a good collage BB player as well.

    He's very good, but I still can't forget Graham pancaking him a few times in the SB on the wham blocks ;)

    I wouldn't compare him to Seymour, different players... but I think Peppers is a rare talent, like a Merriman but bigger. If he played for the Pats they could use him at OLB similar to how McGinest was used. He is athetic enough to drop into coverage within a limited area and would create an almost unblockable front 4 (Peppers, Warren, Wilfok, Seymour). The Pats would get very strong pressure from just the front four creating free lanes to the QB for LBs and Safeties when blitzing.

    It would be truly awesome, but I digress....

    Peppers is a rare athlete. He is unbelievable fast for a guy his size. He has also played wide receiver for Carolina in some formations. I love Seymour but I would trade him even up for Peppers.

    He wouldn't fit our system though. He would be undersized for a 3-4 DE. Plus I'm not sure he'd be all that great in a 2 gap system. Maybe if he slimmed down a bit he could play the elephant role that McGinest used to??
