    Daunte plays the full season and he'll be comeback player of the year.
    Too bad he isn't with us anymore.
    He won't play the full season.
    JaMarcus Russell will be starting by Week 10.
    You really think they are going to go to Russell if they are putting up 35 points a game and wining with Culpepper?

    They are tied for the division lead right now.
    Yes.
    They will go to Russell as soon as humanly possible.
    Then why not now?
    He'll only be marginally more prepared in 6 weeks.
    There won't be much of a difference.
    they go to Russel in week 10 if they are 3 or more games out of the division.
    If they are tied or in the race with an above reasonable chance of making the playoffs and the offense is doing well - Russell sits.
    It's not humanly possible now.
    He doesn't know the offense.
    By Week 10, he will.
    You don't draft a QB #1 to sit on the bench.

    The Bengals did.
    It is working pretty well for Carson Palmer, right?
    Or do you disagree?

    I would think after mini-camps and a couple weeks into a contract he knows enough of the offense to simplify it for him.
    Kind of like the Bills are doing for Trent Edwards...

    The Bengals aren't run by Al Davis.

    I don't thinkthat even Davis is THAT stupid to start Russell over Pep IF Pep is doing well and the Raidahs are winning.
    But then I COULD be wrong...I was wrong ONCE before in my life...it could happen a second time.
    NAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

    Oh, I "kaka del rio" you.

    Have you been watching the Vikings games at all this season?
    We get into enemy territory all the time. It goes soemthing like this: AD, AD, AD, Shanicoe, AD, Wade.... Longwell/Kluwe.
    Having a Quarterback that can get your team into the endzone makes all the difference in the world...OBVIOUSLY.

    Crediting one player with a win or a loss is dumb.
    So I wasn't not giving Fargas any credit.
    Just saying that the team that gains the most yards doesn't always win.
    The team that gets the most points, however, always wins.
    Culpepper deserves the majority of the credit.
    Although, without his team mates making plays, they wouldn't have done anything.
    Of course this is true of every team, every week.
    Unfortunately, I've watched the Vikings games.
    But it hasn't exactly gone like you said.
    It's gone more like this when we get in scoring range: incomplete pass, incomplete pass, incomplete pass.
    And our failures to score when we get close haven't been from as close as the Raiders had it yesterday.

    Look, it's great that Daunte got 5 TDs.
    He ran a bunch in and he threw a few.
    Good for him.
    But there's a big difference between a QB doing that from five yards out five times and doing it from 30 yards out five times.
    The rest of the team made it easy for him.
    Culpepper didn't make great plays.
    He made plays you are expected to make, but he made them repeatedly.
    That's good.
    But the reason they won the game so easily is because they were able to move the ball down to the five over and over again, without throwing the ball.
    That's great, and the O-line deserves a lot of credit, as do the running backs.
    Culpepper, not as much.
    the "...." was meant to imply the 3 consectutive incomplete passes.

    Culpepper got into the endzone.
    And has now accounted for more touchdowns than our entire team.
    Thats what matters.
    Does Fargas and their O-line deserve a lot of credit - of course.
    As does their defense.
    However, somebody doesn't make those efforts pay off and they are worthless, completely worthless.
    Culpepper's Scores were the 5 most important plays of that game for the Raiders and to not give him his just due for it (the majority fo credit for the win) is insane.
    When it s all said and done, you ll have to admit we re number 1!

    I'm glad to see that Daunte is doing good. I do agree we should have let him go, but I dont' agree with who we let go before him..... Anyway congrats to big butt Daunte and his never ending fumblitis.
