How Long Does It Take Julius Peppers to Make $100,000?

Here's a cool article by the Wall Street Journal on how long it takes athletes to make $100,000.

According to the latest figures from the U.S. Census Bureau, it takes an average U.S. citizen a shade under four years to earn $100,000. Alex Rodriguez does it in six pitches.

So using this logic... Follow me for a sec...  The NFL average snaps per game is about 126, or 63 snaps per team.  Let's assume Julius Peppers sees 50 of of those snaps (it's probably slightly lower, which would actually inflate these numbers).  With his 16.7Mil salary, he makes about 1 mil per game.  That means he makes about $20,000 per snap, or $100,000 every 5 snaps.  So there you have it.  Every 5 snaps Julius "Goofy Grin" Peppers makes what we on average make in 4 years.

Ya think as a society we got our priorities mixed up a bit?
