    Re: Vikings may have financial decisions to make on Culpeppe

    I must say that was a very well written article - thanks for the post. However, I do believe its a little premature to be discussing operations decisions of this magnitude. The Vikings have always been good to their players and I am sure they will do the right thing for everyone in this case.

    Bottom line is no matter what, it appears Daunte will still be on the roster next year if the surgery goes as planned. Be it honor his contract, restructure his roster bonus into a signing bonus or ask him to take a paycut.

    Re: Vikings may have financial decisions to make on Culpepper

    well..i would i like to see pep get paid...however, what if he cant play at the same level...im not sure if id want to pay him that kind of money...this isnt baseball or the NBA...it is unfortunate but why would the vikes handcuff themselves with that long of a contract of he isnt the same Pep we all love...

    peace...
    peace...

    Re: Vikings may have financial decisions to make on Culpepper

    I didn't really even read the first post, but if you ask me..

    When a player signes a contract, I'm sure there is well documented clause that say wheathe he gets paid or not, during devestating times like this..

    If the coantract says he gets paid, even in times of injury, then pay him.

    I also believe, Daunta will be back.......Let's hope the best for him..

    Re: Vikings may have financial decisions to make on Culpepper

    He'll be back......it is hoped. We will all have a better idea once the surgery is done and the extent of the damage can be better assessed. Pep may become a Warren Moon type......but let's not forget that he is a great passer. A good player like Pep adapts...if he does not have his legs he will adapt and learn to better read defenses....thats human nature. Look at Rich Gannon. His shoulder injury while with the Redskins forced him to adpat - he was still mobile in the pocket - but never the scrambler he was with the Vikings. Pep will learn to adapt and join the QB elite in the history of the NFL....pending the extent of the injury. It is hoped and i stress hoped it is not career ending.

    Re: Vikings may have financial decisions to make on Culpepper

    I just don't see how we can trade Daunte. Look at all of the other teams out there that have tied their futures into a high first round pick QB only to be left helpless when he turns into a bust. We're really lucky that we have the most important position nailed down with a very good player. True, he costs a bunch, looked awful most of this year, and may never be quite the same player after this injury, but we'd never get equal value in a trade. I don't think it would be out of the question for the Vikes to ask him to take a paycut, but what if he says no? Can we really cut him? I don't think so. More than likely, Daunte stays here with the same contract he's got now. Let's hope the rehab goes well!

    Re: Vikings may have financial decisions to make on Culpepper

    Thats right.....he will be a different Qb.....but he will be fine. Just a diferent Qb - more of a passer if he can learn to read defenses.
