    Re: Can Childress Rebuild Culpepper?

    I was very disappointed when I heard Culpepper will be back as the "Franchise" QB next year. I don't imagine us ever winning with him. He played like a high school QB when he had to face adversity without Moss to lean on and no more single coverage. His play was awful and he did not play smart; throwing the ball up for grabs or taking huge sacks instead of throwing it away. Even when Moss was here and the offense was potent, you just get the feeling that Culpepper was gonna put it on the ground or do something dumb eventually. I never got that feeling with Brad.
    Very dissapointed indeed. Oh well, go Vikes.

    Never in a million years would you get that for Pep. His stock is worth a player and a 4th.... MAYBE a 3rd, but i doubt it.

    Re: Can Childress Rebuild Culpepper?

    A year ago, Culpepper was the franchise player. Today, he's the franchise problem.

    But if the Culpepper we saw this year is the real Culpepper, the Vikings should do everything they can to rehab his image and knee, then trade him.
    I couldn't agree more.

    So what did you want him to do when the O-Line broke down? You don't want him to keep the ball and take the sack... yet you don't want him to throw it away. Yes, his play was awful, but bad coaching decisions and a Birk-less O line need to take some of the blame.

    Really? I dindnt get that feeling much last year. Oh wait - we had a great OC and a solid line last year. hmmmmmmm.

    I think keeping Dante as the starting QB is the best move we could make. It isn't a knock against Brad, who we know can still play, but IMHO Dante is still one of the best QBs out there.

    If Pep does not learn to quick read a defense and execute a 3 step drop and shoot he will not be playing here. You have to be able to do both to play in a west coast offense. As yet I have never seen Pep be able to do that.

    I said "instead" of throwing it away meaning he should be throwing it away.

    There's not a QB in the league that wouldn't be a potential Pro Bowl candidate playing in that offense. It's when adversity sets in which separates the the QB's with all the "tools" from the ones that don't necessarily have the proto-type size, arm, etc., but smarts and game savvy. I think we know which of the 2 give us the best chance to WIN.

    What I don't get is how he didn't improve from week to week last season. I don't know that he can change that much.
