    Re: In 1998-2004 Was it Possible For a MN QB to Fail?

    dont forget we had a pro bowl TE as well (chamberlain), and one of the leagues best o lines in that period as well as having the best receivers in the league..we also had a running game among the leagues best around that time..so yes it was impossible to stink it up at QB in that period
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Also, when Moss moved to Oakland the team may have went 4-12 but Kerry Collins passed for 3759 yards, 20 tds, and 12 ints. To put this into perspective, this year's Super Bowl winner Ben Roethlisberger only had 2385 yds and 17 tds this year.

    Heck, if Collins wouldn't have been benched 3 games before the season ended he would've probably broken 4000 yards, something Culpepper's only done once in his entire career- in 2004.

    It just goes to show you that building the right team and putting a decent quarterback in the mix is a better idea than using all of your picks to move up and draft a top tier QB. Use the picks to build the team and get a qb that can manage the offense.

    To be fair Johnson did play 2 games with Moss in 1998 before getting injured, and in those 2 games he passed for 747 yards, had a 65% completion rate (11 yds per completion), scored 7 touchdowns with 5 interceptions. Johnson didn't even get to finish the 2nd game.

    If he had kept this up for the whole season and not gotten injured he would have passed for 5967 yards and had 56 touchdown passes (both would have been all-time NFL records.)

    Dont forget the Jay Fielder game in which he lit it up against JAX. Then there were all of the other JF games. :lol:

    Lets also not forget that in 2001 and 2002 we went 5-11 and 6-10. That is failure. As for the stats and going to three pro bowls, Pep can light up a stat sheet as well as anyone. There are a lot of QBs that could have won a lot more games but not had nearly the same stats, even with the same team Pep played for. Of course the recievers were good but Pep deserves a lot of credit for his stats, he's just not a winner.

    I year in whicj the ultimate goal (Super Bowl) is not met is failure.

    Saying otherwise is sugar coating.
