He's seen playing time, dingbat.
Based on his preseason, you would have at least thought he'd be making some noise. He hasn't made any. With the lack of playing time he's getting it doesn't give anyone confidence the kid can play.
Even if he's still suffering from lack of stamina/inability to finish games, the universal solution for that is to get him out on the field early in games and see how long he can last, taking him out before he starts to get severely pushed around. Sprinkled in with a lot of visits to the team nutritionists and an exercise regiment. If that's happening, it isn't getting the team any return.
So no I am not expecting Julius Peppers, but I was at least expecting more than what we've seen. Not unreasonable to expect.
