34-year old still too talented to judge him a bust this soon, but his play was indifferent
I didn't tune in until after Peppers day was over. It is not unheard of for players with more than 10 years of service not going full tilt in the preseason.

Titans 20, Packers 16 - Julius Peppers gets 10 snaps as three starters sit out Packers' preseason opener
"It was just a matter of getting him going," an executive in personnel for an NFL team said. "You're not really going to see much from him now. This is the warm-up to the warm-up."
On Peppers' first play, veteran tight end Craig Stevens slammed into the 34-year-old with determination and controlled him as the running back ran by for a gain of 4. Peppers gave Stevens a piece of his mind after the play.
A few snaps later, Stevens confronted Peppers again in a run-block situation. After gaining a stalemate, Stevens found himself thrown to the ground by Peppers.
"I saw that," another NFL personnel man said. "(Peppers) looked tough against the run early. Star players don't like the way Stevens plays. He's a finisher."
Heh, could use a little more of that attitude when season starts against Seattle, Detroit, New York etc.
Edit: Thought we were playing the NFC East this year. Guess New York doesn't belong there #-o
