I’ll have what he’s having.
Yesterday afternoon, New York Giants safety Jabrill Peppers displayed the type of energy that is needed for the typical paper-pusher to complete those TPS reports and power through that weekly Monday morning sales meeting.
Peppers didn’t need a couple pots of coffee, a can of Red Bull, or some booger sugar to energize though. He just needed a coin flip to go his way.

Jabrill Peppers: “BOOM! We want that ball! F*** EM’”

Prior to the overtime period in the game against the Saints, Jabrill Peppers and New Orleans’ Malcolm Jenkins met at midfield for the coin toss. Just before the referee tossed 25 cents into the air, he asked Peppers to call “heads or tails,” as is customary for the visiting team.

“I’m confident, I’m confident,” he added, as the the coin made its way to the turf.
Peppers was right to feel confident. The coin landed on heads, giving the Giants the choice of kicking or receiving. And that’s when the hot mic caught Peppers bursting with all the energy of an Ultimate Warrior ring entrance.

Peppers’ excitement carried over to the rest of his team. On the sixth play of overtime, New York running back Saquon Barkley found the end zone, giving the Giants their first win of the season.
Peppers and the Giants took care of their own business on Sunday. Now about those TPS reports…
