Do any Minny players have value w/o Culpepper

From the gamelogs it looks like Marcus Robinson might become the #1 target... I wouldn't rush out to acquire the guy, but Minnesota has a pretty friendly home field advantage and he might be one of those guys you can plug in at WR#3 every other week and get some production.

Have to watch the replay this week..

I'm a homer also and I'm sorry Culpecker got hurt, but am excited about the possibilities of this team without him, finally.
He is a good athlete that can string together some amazing stats, but he'll never stand in there and win games consistantly like Elway, Montana, Manning.....etc.
Not smart enough......Not disiplined enough.

I can't believe that someone would say to upgrade the values of Wiggins, Moore, and Robinson. That really makes no sense to me.

Generally when you swap out a veteran for a less experienced quarterback, I've noticed this about the value of his surrounding cast:

WR1: up
Other WRs: down
TE: up
RB: down

The new guy generally either forces it to the WR1 or dumps it off to the TE. The defence stacks the run and tries to make him throw.

I don't know how that applies here though, as Brad Johnson is very experienced but just lacks talent.

It's not's a quote from Mike Tice.

Mike Tice coaches Culpepper and Brad Johnson.

Mike Tice also coaches one of the lousiest teams this year and some of his players don't respect him after his antics earlier this year. Take Mike Tice with a grain of salt.

At worst, this QB change has no impact. He can't possibly play any worse than Suckpepper has this season.
