    It's Official - Culpepper to start against Vikes

    http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/10473405
    One thing that has gone right for Daunte Culpepper this season is timing.

    When Oakland starting quarterback Josh McCown broke his toe earlier this season, it came in time to give Culpepper his first start with the Raiders in Miami against the team that released him earlier in the summer.

    Now that a thigh injury and poor play have cost McCown his job for a second time this season, Culpepper moves back into the starting role in time to face his original NFL team, the Minnesota Vikings.

    "When you go to a place that you played before obviously emotion is going to be a part of it," Culpepper said Wednesday. "But the main thing is I have to try to keep an even keel even though I know it's going to be crazy. But I'm looking forward to it..."

    Where are all the Culpepper crotch sniffers?
    :-\

    I thought they'd be lapping this one up.

    Granted McCown is hurt and the Met Dome is not an ideal place for Russell to make his first start, but it sounds like Ziggy & Al Davis working out a deal under the table to prevent a blackout.


    The logic here is that releasing the news of Culpepper starting this far in advance will incentivize Vikings fans to attend a buy tickets for a game that is not worth the price of attendence.


    Inasmuch as I love the Vikings, I will be cheering for Culpepper this Sunday.
    This game is more about Childress vs. Culpepper and it is hoped the outcome will result in the final rights read over Childress's coaching career in MN.

    How cool would it be to have a new head coach next year that would actually entertain the thought of bringing Culpepper back.
    I mean Tarkington was traded because he couldn't get along with Norm Van Brocklin - why should Culpepper's situation be any different?

    Holy crap, Culpepper couldn't even hold a roster spot in Miami so he is traded to Oakland where he gets spot duty filling in for a mediocre QB when he is injured and people still want him back here? lol

    I would stand by Childress and TJ alongside Marr after a loss before I would say bring back Culpepper lol.

    It is convenient that it happened but it certainly isn't the first time in the NFL that circumstances played out so conveniently.

    No way...opening possession he'll drive 78 yards and fumble it on the 2, we'll recover, lol.

    if he is anything like the old daunte, I predict some crucial fumbles, a couple of nice runs and an interception toward the end of the game when it counts the most, securing a loss for Oakland.

    Poor Oakland, luckily we didn't give them the chance to snatch up someone like TJack
