    Bad move by Daunte IMHO.

    Just think what we would have if we still had Culpepper and Moss! (Sarcasm off)

    Q: At your age, can you handle a full season?
    A: I m 37, number one. I took my family to Perkins a couple of days ago, and they didn t hand me a senior citizens discount card, so I feel pretty good.

    I know it is water under the bridge but I'm pretty sure the Vikings traded daunte because he and chilli couldn't agree on where he should rehab during the offseason.
    I don't blame Daunte for asking for more money, he wasn't gonna get it, but I don't blame him.
    I am one who appreciates all great vikings for life, not just while they are with the team. Daunte played hard and I have many fond memories of him scoring TD's and breaking records, for that I am eternally grateful to Daunte and Moss.
    If in 5 or 6 years Peterson gets traded are you gonna turn on him too? I will not.
    I never turned on him.
    In fact you will very seldom see me ever say anything bad about a player (past or present).

    I do not blame any player for wanting to get more.

    I am only pointing out an error in what the original poster stated.


    The way I understand it, the rehab issue was just that an issue. Our medical staff didn't believe he was rehabing correctly (Strip mall) and wanted him here.
    They also wanted to see what shape his knee was really in before they even started talking money.


    If memory serves, Daunte is the one that started balking at that point.

    As you said, water under the bridge.
    Good luck to Daunte and all the rest of the players and staff that used to be a member of this storied organization.

    Sure wish some of the current staff and players had the support that some of our past have.

    No, if memory serves, his inept agent was trying to renegotiate his contract PRIOR to the 2005 season. There was even talk of him holding out. I can't recall if he held out & missed part of training camp or not.

    Wilf threw him a check to prevent the holdout & promised Culpepper & his agent that they would talk about it after the season was over. That's the money/contract Culpepper went in for at the end of the season, but unfortunately, he not only had a bad season, but had undergone major surgery as well.

    At the point, he had little going for him to merit the renegotiation.

    Thanks for clarifying my friend, however, that was meant to be a joke centered on Daunte being his own agent.

    I failed miserably, for that I apologize.
