Peppers had only 2.5 sacks last season and none in the first two games. But -- even before the sack -- there had been a noticeable improvement in Peppers' play over last year. He's been much more active and energetic and I saw him come close to getting a sack on at least two plays in the first half. On both of those plays, Peppers hit Frerotte just as he threw the ball.
