If you're a general manager, and you tune into the Pro Bowl to see your defensive end openly campaigning on national television to leave your team, how do you make him happy? For Panthers GM Marty Hurney, the answer was simple: You offer him a one-year, $16.7 million deal. That's $16.7 million in guaranteed money -- Peppers could make another $2.5 million if he reaches playoff- and Pro Bowl-related incentives.

The Giants and Ravens set a record in Super Bowl XXXV with 21 total punts. That record may well be in jeopardy. But in this battle of top defenses, Carolina's superior and more flexible offense gives the Panthers the edge.
