We really need to not compare Peppers/Williams/Kearse to Reggie White and Bruce Smith. I brought this up in the HoF thread, but White and Smith were complete anomalies. Nobody before or since (including Deacon Jones, but he was playing 14 game seasons) have really come close to matching their career sack totals. We were tricked by the fact that they both played at the same time and they started at about the same time that the NFL began keeping official sack statistics; but 200 career sacks is very much an aberration.
If I'm "only" getting Peppers and his 112 sacks, I'm running the draft card up to the podium some time in January.
