    Culpepper must take some blame....

    This is my first post and i am a die hard vikes fan my whole life. I want to sit here and say that its just the o-lines fault and we need to just address that, but the fact of the matter is Culpepper threw some terrible passes today, pressure or not!! I'm not gonna jump to conclusions and say we should bench him, he's too good an athlete, but we have to be realistic and ask ourselves when is enough enough? If he performs like this in the first half of next weeks game i'm gonna have to say its time to see what Brad can do.

    I have to agree. You cannot put it all on the O-Line or the coaches. Pep has to shoulder some of this too. There were times he did not find the open Wr, or his passes were garbage.

    There were soooo many instances that Daunte could have ran the ball for a good gain and he decided to make bad pass decisions and threw picks. He should run the ball more often.

    Yea the announcer shows guys open, but do you realize how many more ints culpepper would have if there across his body and across the field to the left well rolling out right, having guys open is great if you can plant your feet and make throw from the pocket whats the point. Daunte looks more like boxer because hsifeet are always moving.
    and daunte is always one of the first to take blame if he plays bad, if anything the guy is too hard on himself. Its wierd but sometimes too much heart can be problem and i think he is too much heart and feels like he can make something out of nothing so he tries to throw through people when games get out of hand jsut make soemthing happen. he needs to calm down and he will be fine

    I think Daunte does need to take some of the blame, because he did throw the picks, but it is a team sport so others have to take some of the blame too. It wasn't just Daunte's fault.

    on some of those plays tho he had plenty of time, if you can't find the open man coming across the field you have no business being in the NFL. i know he's not used to the new coverages, and probaly not having a vertical game except for a rookie that we only play at the end of the game.
    but if he can't figure this crap out he doesn't deserve the starting job. i'm not saying bench him in favor of Johnson or Hill but he does need to get his head out of his butt, how many times did you see him looking downfield for a receiver and then get sacked and fumble the ball. i like Pep but he needs to read what is going on, on the field quicker.

    Thanks Josdin

    Re: Culpepper must take some blame....

    couldn't see the game, but the game tracker mentioned Rosenthal for quite a few false starts. Im glad the O-line gave him some more time this week, but the running game stinks. I agree Culpepper could probably run more and be just as effective as MM or MB, but his fumblitis suggests otherwise.

    I did watch the TB game and after 2 weeks i can honestly say Daunte is thinking too much out there. Against the Bucs he changed the play at the line too many times so much so he was overthinking every play trying to find a hole. And from what ive seen and heard over the past 2 hours i get the feeling he did the same thing today.

    The o-line needs some work, but Daunte needs to trust his instincts more, i think he's thinking too much and trying too hard to overanalyze things out there.
