As a vikings fan and a burleson owner,

I really like what this does for the vikes. This will make us more of a team now. We wanted to get rid of Randy and we did, I'm excited to see what will happen next year.

yeah, i'd like this. but as a cpepp, moss, collins owner I feel like this may hurt me a little. Cpepp loses a little, moss stays the same and collins goes up, but i really didn't care that much about my backup qb.

I have a hard time figuring out who did worse - the Vikes trading away Moss or the Raptors trading Vince Carter? :-? that's a tough one.

At least the Vikes got the 7th overall pick - of course by the time they make their minds up, it will be the 12th overall pick...

I think that the Vikings went from a great offensive team with a horrible defence to a good offensive team with a mediocre defence. Another 8-8 or 9-7 season looks imminent.

I think the Packers are the big winners from this trade, I'm thrilled to have someone who has taken the Packers apart as frequently as Moss has out of the division.

Funny quote: Bob Slowik - former Packers DC and DB coach and current Broncos DB coach - "I just can't seem to get away from him" :-b

That Slowik quote is great, where did you find that? Could you post a link to it? Thanks!

I think Moss wanted out as badly as they wanted him gone.Now he doesn't have to get embarrassed by Peanut every time they play the Bears vaunted D!

Here you go Carolina Culpepper:

Slowik Quote and Such

A couple of other quotes I read:

Ron Wolf, former Packer GM - "I should have taken that guy"

Dick Vermiel, upon hearing Moss was coming to the division - "That's just great"

And Porter is happy about it too. I was kind of wondering if he knew when he re-signed.

Porter says he welcomes the addition of Randy Moss to the Raiders but didn't know about his planned acquisition during recent contract talks. "I feel great about it," Porter told the Oakland Tribune. "I welcome him with open arms. ... I know a lot of teams in the AFC West are going to draft defense right now. They changed their whole draft board."

Are you nuts? Culpepper is easily or best player, and is one of the most talented QB's in the league. He had one of the best seasons in NFL history, and would have been a lock for MVP if not for Peyton Manning. He had a 70% completion percentage! That is unheard of! Why in the world would we want to get rid of Culpepper? There is no way we could get a better QB.

And if you think Culpepper has an attitude problem like Moss, you couldn't be farther than the truth. Culpepper is one of the best people in the league, IMHO. Have you seen his Beyond the Glory special? This guy is a great person. He bought his birth mother a house, despite the fact that she didn't raise him. He isn't one of those locker room problems. He is a great player, and a LEADER. That is what we need.
