Jarrett, Peppers and Panthers

As controversial wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett recedes into the Panthers' rear-view mirror -- my column on his second DWI charge and resulting cut from the Panthers Tuesday can be found here -- the Chicago Bears are looming in front of them.

The Bears (3-1) are coming off a 14-point loss to the same New York Giants team that beat Carolina by 13 in Week 1. Their biggest concern is their offensive line, which allowed a whopping 10 sacks against the Giants and had its first two quarterbacks knocked out of the game.

Today should be interesting, as new Bear Julius Peppers does a conference call with the local Charlotte media. Peppers has routinely declined interviews from Charlotte-based media since leaving for Chicago after the 2009 season.

I'll post some thoughts on Peppers' comments later this afternoon.
