    Not you again :roll: Aren't you the Culpepper/Moss man-love guy?

    Read this post that is based on quotes rather than blind comments.

    This is what he said:

    "It just became a deal where I didn't feel like it was the team, I felt like it was 'me,'" Childress said Monday about Culpepper. "I went through a big 'me' situation last year with a guy who was all about 'me.'"

    Put that in context with "Childress' comments from this excerpt:

    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.'"
    The comments may not have been wise, but were true. No team concept and wanted money. T-ho's attitude = Culpepper's attitude at that point.
    apparently all that fumblepepper saw in the word team..was the letters.. ME.

    Right on Del Rio. Someone else who agreed with me!

    Re: Childress ends talk of Culpepper

    Great thread, folks. Both about Pep and Harris.

    I agree about giving Harris a chance at MLB this year. I distinctly remember watching him in his rookie year in a later game on CBS, and seeing him rack up the tackles and thinking "Theres ANOTHER young stud defensive player, why the hell can't the Vikings get guys like this??"
