    A short news release issued Tuesday night said Culpepper "is expected to be ready to participate" in training camp next July. But recovery time for his injury is generally projected for nine to 12 months, and a specialist in the field said last week it will take 18 months for Culpepper to return to his previous physical condition after so significant an injury.
    I hope he doesn't take the full 18 mos to recover.

    The QB job belongs to brad as far as I am concerned. Daunte can compete with Shaun Hill for the back up role and if he aint' happy with that, I say we send his jiggly butt packing to green bay and get farve and go 16-0 (according to michael irvin).
    Yeah uhm...maybe you shouldn't do this whole 'posting' thing

    Re: Culpepper surgery complete

    Thought this was interesting, from a Star Trib article.

    Although he is not treating Culpepper, Clancy has an extensive background in sports medicine and is considered one of the leading knee surgeons in the world. Based at Orthopedic Associates of Aspen and Glenwood, Colo., since August 2004, Clancy spent the previous 15 years working with Dr. James Andrews at the Alabama Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Center.

    Andrews, whose office declined to comment for this story, will perform the surgery on Culpepper's ACL, MCL and PCL early next week in Alabama. The only ligament Culpepper didn't tear was the lateral collateral ligament.

    All of these joints work together to keep the knee stable. The MCL supports the inner portion and the LCL the outer; the ACL and PCL provide support in the center.

    The ACL and MCL must be fixed. Culpepper could run forward without an ACL, but he couldn't stop and change directions; the MCL prevents the knee from collapsing inward, meaning if Culpepper tried to cut with a damaged MCL he would simply fall.

    The PCL, though, has to do with flexion and not rotation; therefore doctors don't know how crucial it is for athletic performance. Clancy pointed out the decision could be made not to repair it. "If somebody has an isolated tear of the PCL, 90 percent of most athletes are going to be able to play without any feeling of instability or anything," he said.

    Clancy points to Detroit Red Wings veteran Steve Yzerman as an example. Clancy, who performs many of the surgical procedures for the hockey team, said Yzerman has been playing without a PCL for 20 years.

    like booby miles from Friday Night Lights.

    I love to watch the locker room scene in FNL where preacherman gets all pumped up, and then the coaches speech about perfection. That gets me pumped up more than anything. I get shivers whenever i watch it.


    Other things that give me shivers:

    The Nike comercial about high school football, where you here all the pregame peptalks

    Remeber the titans- almost every talk Boone or Yoast gives the players

    Brian's Song- When Sayers is talking about Pic to the rest of the team

    What's wrong with someone posting anything against Culpepper? What is wrong is other members putting that person down and saying they shouldn't post anymore, or that they're a troll, or they're no a real fan, etc.

    I could say that THESE people should not post anymore becuse they are trying to censor the board, but I won't because it's not right and that's their opinion.

    This should be an open forum where fans can express their open minded opinions freely and without retribution from others that disagree.

    Props to michaelmazid for speaking his mind.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Ok :smile:

    guys,

    I was just joking. I guess I need to start inserting some smiles when I make a comment like that. I do think that Daunte will be a better passer than he was before because of this injury. Everyone knows that pockets passers win super bowls and not qb's that run around all over the field.

    p.s
    thx jimmymac for having my back. just to stirr it up a litte, I leave with this quote "Randy Moss was the best thing that ever happend to us. He gave our team a personality and I miss his antics and no sorry ass nate burelson will ever replace or even come close to moss. Nate only had a good year cause everyone had to triple team moss"
