    Well the t-wolves got the respect they deserved....


    Of course being last year. :lol:

    I mean KG did win mvp right??? THere was a lot of press covering him and the t-wolves all year long last year. Not this year since they are like in the same category as the Lakers. :lol:

    Here's the answer to your question:
    The Vikes are from a small market. They give more coverage to the big-market teams because they make more money that way. In other words, they are whores. Lousy media pukes. :roll:

    A lot of it is media and a lot of it is winning. Favre is seen as a winner and he is one. Manning broke records. Daunte was up and down for a few years but kicked out huge numbers last year. If Manning didn't go crazy last year, Pep would've been up for MVP. More wins = more hype.

    Pep is starting to get more hype (commercials)...so is this the year for him to go to elite status in the NFL?

    and randy was taking alot of attention or a bad D.. Randy got bad press or awesome catches.. and the D would just get made fun of.. Pep will get more attention this year because he doesnt have a superstar WR.. and the D should hold up fine for us

    If that was true Brett Favre would not get the spotlight that he does. It's due to numbers and being a winner. Duante hasn't had consistant numbers and last year he finally won a playoff game. It also hurts that the Vikings have not been in the playoffs for years. He also is not seen as a leader. He is QB but but he could never bend Randy Moss, Cris Carter or other player into unified behavior for the good of the team. Lack of leadership really hurts a QB. No players ever cite Culpepper as inspiring them.

    Just because the media doesn't see it doesn't mean it isn't there.

    (Carryover post from HOF talk)
    Sweet Mother McCreedy!!
    Some of these Cullpepper posts????
    Hello McFly? Think McFly Think.
    What on earth would you want Cullpepper to do?
    Let's for grins say each team has 3 quarterbacks.
    I know some may only carry or suit 2.
    That is 90+ quarterbacks in the NFL on any given Sunday.
    Cullpepper is a top 5 quarterback week in and week out.
    And before the big guns come out blasting away at that, do the research.
    His has earned that position.
    Ask yourself who other than Cullpepper would you want leading this team?
    I think you would be hard pressed to put ANY more than 4 other quartebacks ahead of him.
    And maybe just 2 or 3.
    This guy has helped changed the postion.

    We are BLESSED to have Cullpepper.
    He is so THE REAL DEAL!
    And as of 2005 better than Farve. For the first time.
    And that is sweeeeeeeet as Cartman would say.
