I'm not sure if this has been mentioned because by the time I got here this thing was 6 pages long, but I believe C-Pep had injured his knee for several games before he actually went out with the big knee injury. That would have alot to do with him not doing so well as his mobility was gone, and the stability needed to pass the ball would be affected. I'm not saying he's a god, but I think it's a bit premature to condemn him until his knee heals and we get a chance to see him again at full strength.
i don't think culpepper will be totally healthy next season.
I think culpepper is a stats stud.
In real life, I think he is a bit lacking relative to the other elite qb's, but i'd still roll the dice with him if I were a gam and didn't have manning, brady and mcnabb. ( listed him later lest anyone accuse me of thinking donovan is as good as those two)
I think of all those qbs, culpepper had a nice ratio of awesome offenseive pieces with a weaker division and conference. I think its criminal that in 2004 the vikes O got more yards than the colts in a wesker conference and had only a .500 record. Yes, your d needs to come up big, but its not like they couldn't have gone 6-0 or 5-1 in that conference with good O alone. It also seems he got stymied by the teams with good d coordinators, he made some bad decisions against the eagles imo.
But with miami, and a go to receiver in chambers, and a nasty d and good coach, there is no reason if healthy he can't produce. I am sure that d will give him short fields more of the time than minny did.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
