Interesting. :hmmm:

I'm not ready to put the Dolphins in the Superbowl, but I do predict that they will be a playoff team in 2006. Sabin is an awesome coach.

Culpepper is my early bid to be "comeback player of the year."

Think of it like this, They won six in a row after they were 3-7, they have 3 good receviers, including a Great one in Chris Chambers. They have up and coming RB in Ronnie Brown, and Good coach in Nick Saban, if Daunte is restored to 2004 form, they could deeep.

I agree as well although I thought you could get him for a 3rd. Hopefully Kubiak as equal success as Sabin in his first year.

I guess I cannot get the images out of my head of Culpepper fumbling like a high school tailback and badly overthrowing receivers. The few Vikings games I caught ... besides the one where he torched our silly Fangio defense.

I remember his numbers back in the day but I didn't really watch the games enough to comment on his skill or the possible resurrection thereof. If you say he can do that same thing again, well I guess we will just wait and see.

And as for the Dolphins, 5 of those last 6 wins came against nancy teams, with NE (I believe, if I am remembering this correctly) resting their starters most of that one "legitimate" game as they had already clinched the division.

Do not get me wrong, Saban is a very solid coach and the Dolphins have a lot to look forward to, but I hardly see them beating the more solid, well-rounded, deep AFC teams this year or the next, for that matter.

Great move by the fins, and Brees list of suitors just dropped to one, especially since the Lions signed Kitna. I have a feeling they balked at Brees stupid high asking price, and that led to them pulling the trigger. Easy playoff team this year now, and a dangerous one at that. See what good coaching, and a couple of key moves can do? :yahoo:

Looking forward to seeing Culpepper & the Fins here this fall. Should be an interesting game with Capers coaching the Miami defense, and ex-Dolphin DC Richard Smith coaching ours.

Wonder what the Vikes will do for a QB? Is Brad Johnson really the answer?

Saints | Six-year deal reached with Brees
Tue, 14 Mar 2006 10:45:18 -0800

Jay Glazer, of FOXSports.com, reports the New Orleans Saints have reached a six-year deal with free agent QB Drew Brees (Chargers). Financial terms of the deal are not yet available.

From that same article:

The trade is contingent upon Culpepper passing a physical, and takes Miami out of the running for free-agent quarterback Drew Brees who also agreed to terms with the Saints on Tuesday in a six-year deal.

Drew is going to Nawl'ns.

dont forget it was Sage Rosenfels that led them back to victory over Buffalo in week 13 with two big TD passes!!! AND a big win over the Jets in week 15 with a 50 yard TD bomb!!

guess ole CC is smarter than we think. Sage is the man!

I would like to know is who is gonna QB the Vikes now? Do they have someone on the bench or they gonna try and trade up to grab one of the 3QB's coming out of college? Inquiring minds want to know........:spy:

The Vikings will likely look at second round QBs or whatever QB that may slip, but that is a far fall. This draft just got more interesting and the top picks just lost a slight bit of value.

The Vikings have Brad Johnson(Rob Johnson....... they've got a johnson) that helped make their season respectable. They aren't hurting for a QB.. not yet anyway.

They have Brad Johnson. They will be just fine. Remember, he is the old man who took the Bucs all the way a few years back. I would rather have Brad QB the vikes than Culpepper the turn over machine.

Culpepper will be better in Miami though.

After last season, and his cap count, yes. Brad has football smarts. Carr is taking longer to progress due to the expansion team, and other various factors.

Im kind of in the same boat. I know it sounds stupid, but I'm not a big fan of drafting QB's. the success rate seems pretty small for the price you have to pay. its been proven you can make it to the playoffs and even win it all with a QB who is not a superstar.

honestly, if you told me we traded Carr for DE Abraham, drafted D'Brikashaw to shore up our line and signed somebody like Brees or even Kitna I would be fine with it. It just seems like you can find a veteran QB that can get the job done provided your GM does his job and puts a good team around him.

It's a nice position to be in when you basically know you can have Drew Brees or Daunte Culpepper, so they weren't too worried about giving Brees the farm to come play for them. I am a little surprised they got Culpepper for just a 2nd round pick, I figured a future conditional pick would be in there too so the Vikes get compensated better if Culpepper has another year like he did in 2004 (I doub that ever happens agin, but somewhere in that neighborhood) and somewhat protect the Dolphins in case he never fully recovers.

Looking forward to seeing Culpepper & the Fins here this fall. Should be an interesting game with Capers coaching the Miami defense, and ex-Dolphin DC Richard Smith coaching ours.

Wonder what the Vikes will do for a QB? Is Brad Johnson really the answer?

I'm sure they'll look for a younger, capable QB in free agency or else they could look to trade up for one of the top three in this draft or look for Omar Jacobs or Brodie Croyle in the 2nd round and sit them behind Johnson for a year.

It was funny...he was on ESPN last night, and he said that he didn't want to stay in Minnesota because he was looking for some "clarity", and he couldn't see that in Minnesota. Something tells me he didn't see enough $$$$.

Vikings | Childress says Culpepper all about the money
Fri, 17 Mar 2006 21:41:42 -0800

Harvey Fialkov, of the Sun-Sentinel, reports in Friday's edition, March 17, of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, first-year Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress said what QB Daunte Culpepper was seeking was more money and lots of it. "Somewhere there is a buy-in factor. I just didn't think that was the case," Childress said. "Right from the beginning. As I mentioned, I never had a conversation with him about this football team. It was always about what he needed financially and money. I never heard team, I always heard me and I and, 'I need $10 million. I'm a $10 million-dollar-a-year quarterback.'"
