    Re: Would still be winning with Culpepper in...

    Hard to say if they had not changed the offense to Brad's talents we might have not won any games and if they had changed the offense for Daunte we might have won more games earlier.

    Re: Would still be winning with Culpepper in...

    I don't think we would have stuck with the run in some of the games if Daunte was still playing. Really, who cares. We are winning and that is the most important thing. Granted I'm upset that Daunte is hurt, but we are doing fine without him and we have to root for whoever is QBing the team anyways.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I really wanna see what Daunte could do with Koren Robinson and a more experienced Troy.
    Definitely, he looked like he was already clicking a little with Troy anyways ... next year Troy could already be the number one receiver on this team ...
    I dont think Troy will be our number 1, maybe Koren will be.
    I still think Nate will be either our one or two. and Troy will still get plenty of playing time next year as well as travis. Marcus will be in there in the red zone. Troy and Travis will most likely splie time in the slot.

    Pretty much what I think the feeling all around should be. If anything Daunte is learning a lot from watching a vet like BJ manage games and I think that Daunte also knows he can make ALOT more plays with his arms and legs than BJ, but needs to learn to play within himself and the offense.
    Tice is also learning that you can stick with the run even when it is not working perfectly and it will open things up. I think everything we have learned lately will benefit C-Pep when he returns.
    Also, to be fair ... C-Pep played some EXTREMELY good opponents in his 2-5 start (those 5 losses are to teams that are 38-17). BJ is 4-0 and I love it, but he is in the "nice part" of the schedule ... the four wins over a combined 17-25 pending the Giants' outcome tonight.

    I like Daunte. But, the reality of the situation is that we had a 2-5 record with him as our starter. Brad came in and we are now 4-0 (with the same patchwork O-line). The "maybes" the "mights" the "what-ifs" & the "what-coulda beens" are great, but they don't win games. Neither do QB rushing stats. Brad is our QB and he is undefeated as our starter so far. He is calm, smart, experienced and has a Super Bowl ring. I'm glad he is our QB right now and I'm very happy how the team is performing with him at the helm. The only regret I have is that I just wish we wouldn't have lost so many games early in the season. But, other than that, I'm living in the present and loving it.
    Wurd, it must be this New Mexico water. I agree, might i add that Johnson doesn't try to do to much, he's not forcing things and throwing INT's and putting the defense in bad situations leading to early @ss kickings and the team falling apart. BJ has not had great protection, today was great but the first time you could really say it stayed consistent all game. I'm just hoping Culpepper is at home learning from johnson.
