    Trading Johnson for McNair? Sounds like a good deal to me. McNair is a tough sumbitch.
    That's about the only scenerio I can imagine being ok with...I like that guy

    Is this attractive to McNair, who more than likely has a VETO button in his contract, more likely to have that language in his contract than BJ would.

    BTW, thanks DCpologirl!!!!

    This is not a bad idea, insted of just saying c-pep is our guy why not have him prove it. Dont go by past stas just go by current production. It is the most fair solution.

    Now he may not get a starting role on another team, but there are teams who he could get one.

    All I am saying is he obviously wants to start. It could happen hell you have all the teams you listed, plus the raiders, the Titans, the Lions......I mean there are possibilities. I think the Vikings will let him EXPLORE thos possibilities.

    Which is saying he can seek a trade. He can test the waters and if no one bites he remains a starter/backup for the Vikes. If he can better himself and start somewhere he should be able to I think the Vikings will feel the same way.

    A little birdie told me Mcnair was going to be out of there.

    I don't know that he would enjoy being a backup to Pep, but I get the feeling he won't have much say in where he lands.

    Re: Brad Wants to Start

    Had to figure he would want to start. He is a good and very experienced QB. There are a lot of QB's out there who do not deserve a starting gig; Brad could easily beat out a lot of them.

    Re: Brad Wants to Start

    Man, why does Brad have to make this more complicated than it already is? Even if he is better than Daunte right now, it hurts the Vikings future to have him start all next season. Now all of a sudden we have to trade him and find a different backup.

    I don't think putting Daunte on a short leash will help his game at all. He struggled this year because he was expected to do big things and was trying to do to much with the ball, forcing throws and such. The added pressure of the chance to be benched if he has a bad game will likely cause him to play the same way. If we don't start Daunte next year we might as well trade him and then start all over again at the QB position when Brad retires.

    Simple. Trade Culpepper if there is the slightest interest. Draft or pick up a QB to develop over the next two years under Brad. In two years, Brad wins a Superbowl and retires and the Rookie is ready to play having learned from one of the best.

    Culpepper goes on to set an NFL record for interceptions, fumbles and sacks taken with another team. And the Vikes save what, $6 million by not paying Daunte his bonus next year?

    I wouldn't be opposed to trading him to the Titans for McNair...they would probably love to unload McNair's salary and we have the cap room to handle it.

    Was that birdie named Dyson? McNair wouldn't come in as a backup to Brad necessarily...the Vikes could have an open competition for the starting position...and let the best man win! I don't doubt that McNair would beat out BJ if both were healthy...McNair has the veteran savvy that Brad has PLUS when healthy he has the superior skills to win games on his own. No dis on Brad...but I really would LOVE to have McNair for just one season...he would definitely shine in our offense!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
