I think just making the association that without Moss Culpepper is nothing is a little too simple. Look at what kind of weapons Culpepper had when Moss left:
RB: A committee of inconsistent and at best slightly above average RBs.
WRs: Burleson, Troy Williamson, Marcus Robinson, and Koren Robinson. Not the most frightening bunch, no true #1 WR.
Moss certainly had an effect, but Culpepper had no major threats to work with on Minnesota last year. Now look at Miami:
RB: Ronnie Brown. He's unproven, but has all the tools, the talent, and so far as performed well enough to become an true featured RB.
WRs: Chambers + Booker are better than any combo Minnesota could field last year.
TE: McMichael is an upgrade from Wiggins too.
Basically, Culpepper has done well when he's had weapons, and Miami may have more firepower than he's ever had to utilize. It's not at all illogical to assume he returns to solid play, if not comparable to his Moss days.
