Julius Peppers getting flak for lack of sacks

Julius Peppers' teammates predicted this would be the season he'd challenge the NFL's sacks record. If he's going to do it, Peppers better get moving. Through three games this season, Carolina's All-Pro defensive end is stuck on zero. Although he's credited with six pressures, Peppers has yet to finish off a quarterback. And that lack of sacks is what many outsiders are blaming for the Panthers' 1-2 start this season. (Raleigh News & Observer)
