    Daunte"looking forward to going back to Minnesota"

    Vikings bringing back Daunte Culpepper, sort of

    I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to a voicemail message from the Vikings inviting me in for a visit to Minnesota, Culpepper told us via e-mail. I have to admit, I have been waiting for this call from the Vikings! I am honored to be selected as one of the 50 greatest Viking players. I am looking forward to going back to Minnesota for the celebration this coming weekend and the game next Monday Night (wherever it is played).

    What a sad history of Vikings players when Culpepper makes our top 50 players ever, but it's true.

    Remember, Chester Taylor #10 all time in career rushing yards and carries as a Viking.

    Another good QB that ran too much and got hurt.

    Michael Vick is now on that same road.

    Tragic.

    Don't you mean another QB that stood in a perfect pocket for 10 seconds until he found a wide open receiver? notice when that pocket and Moss left, Culpepper played like crap.

    Like I said, he got hurt running too much.

    He didn't get hurt until halfway through that season. He sucked for that entire season.

    I really really really really really hope that Favre is one of them. For Marrdro's sake.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    I think he would be on most teams top 50. His career here was short, but while he was here he was incredible. 163TD as a Vikings.

    Peterson is much higher on the list after only 3 seasons. That's crazy.

    Yards per game, he's at 95.5
    Next closest is Chuck Foreman at 69.6

    Average yards per carry for runningbacks with at least 100 carries,
    Tied for #3 with 4.8ypc

    Onterrio Smith and Mewelde Moore both have 4.9
    Robert Smith is tied with AP at 4.8

    on a side note, Joe Webb is #4 all-time for average ypc in vikings history! :laugh:
