    God bless him, and his speedy recovery. Even though the Vikings are excelling right now, it just doesn't feel right without Daunte. I know a win is a win, but it would just feel much more gratifying with Pep. Anyone else have that feeling or know where I'm coming from?
    I know where you're coming from. My heart goes out to the guy. I mean he loves the sport so much and for him not to be out on the field with the guys must be so hard for him. I now know who the Vikings biggest fan is. I know he probably will never be the same again, it would probably take a miracle. I pray that God will give him that miracle and that he will be on the field next year. God bless you Daunte and get well soon!!

    Re: Pepper breaks the silence!!!

    I wish Pep well and hope to see him back. It's impossible to give a prognosis on anything at this point on how he recovers. Although he's strong, remember there is a lot of weight going on that knee. Sure others made it back like Terry Allen and Willis McGahee but they are shorter, lighter and more compact than Pep. That does make a difference. Pep would have to change almost his entire style of play. He still hasn't perfected the style he's had his whole life. That's why I worry about it.

    I wish Pep the best and hope he proves me and many others wrong. He's a great guy to have with awesome talent. My prayers go out to Pep and wish him well in his recovery.

    Re: Pepper breaks the silence!!!

    I obviously wish him well ... and think any true fan of the game wishes anyone well that undergoes these types of harships ... I can't imagine laying there wondering if my career is over!
    But I still am not a huge fan of this press release at this time. Tice gets asked plenty of questions about Culpepper and can very effectively update everyone, this seems very much like a "I know we are doing great and I hope they stay hot, but don't forget me" gesture ...
    Just relax and get better Daunte ... whether we are anti-DC or love ya (I am in that later boat) ... none of us are forgetting you.

    Because of the severity of this injury, and the rehab required, I doubt we will ever see Culpepper play at 100% again... if at all.
    I am pretty sure you think he will die :lol: but that is ok ... we will give you some nice crow to munch on when he is doing just fine ...

    The official vikings website has the full transcript of Culpepper's statements:

    As for Culpepper's rehab and return, who knows? It's pretty much useless to predict how it will affect his future play. There are cases of people who return 100% and there are cases of people who retire. At the end of the day, the statistics have zero ability to influence how C-pep will play.

    I for one hope he heals incredibly well and uses his time to bone up his QB IQ. I also hope he keeps an agressive attitude to play. Many people are psychologically affected by serious injuries like this to the point where they become apprehensive in their game play. He a survivor though, I think he has the character to make it back from this. But no one can assess whether he is fully recovered until he's back on the grid iron for a while.
    If I know DC at all, when he's not able to play, he'll be studying film for hours per day. We don't need to worry about a lack of effort.

    I'll believe it when I see it. Culpepper is a tremendous talent, but not a superbowl QB. I hope I can eat my words. Next year will be make or break for him. If he doesn't improve, he needs to ride the bench. And the Vikes need to begin now looking for the QB of the future.

    Best of Luck to Culpepper anyway. I hope he takes the next step.
    Down on C-Pep eh?

    Ya, I wish the best of luck for him and I hope hes ready for training camp in the summer. Maybe, hell come out out and have a better year than every before. It will all play out in time...

    oh and vikes I love the avatar



    Thank you Josdin for the sig

    could you imagine pep coming back like he played last season, having k-rob, williamson, burley, and wiggins steppin it up. memo runnin the ball. our defense that has been gellin together and our bomb a$$ special teams? i think we'd be some serious contenders for the sb next season, if it all happened. it might even happen this season, minus pep of course. i guess it doesn't hurt to dream
