    Would've We gone to Playoffs if Brad Johnson Started?

    Question of the Day... I don't think anybody disputes Culpepper's fumbles and interceptions was the main reason for our 2-5 start (would've been 1-6 too if it wasn't for Edinger's last minute 56 yd field goal against Packers.) Our defense couldn't do very well because they were forced to be on the field for most of the games and the turnovers led to many a touchdown for the opposing teams which is hard to come back from. Given that the Vikes did beat Chicago and the running was so close in our division (missed it by 1 game), would the season have ended differently?

    No man.. Our D started to gel around the time Brad came in..

    And if Brad had to play the teams Pep played too thier D's are scary.. He would have done pretty bad as well im guessing

    I actually think a lot of people would dispute that. Who did Brad Johnson beat that was a good team this year? Nobody! What teams did we lose against with Daunte? Very very good teams. Playoff contenders.

    DCPologirl:Maybe Randy will make Aaron Brooks look better......roflmao Del Rio: I guarantee he will

    Yes


    It is simple why, he doesn't turn the ball over as much.

    Of course the team magically got better when he arrived. The D magically gelled, the running game magically started clicking...........

    LMAO.

    I agree DC. BJ didn't beat great teams this year. Our D just happened to start to come together at the time that Pep went down. Daunte will be back to start the season, yes . . . START the season. With our new D, and hopefully some good FA pickups and draft, he'll be a better all around QB. Brad Childress was key in the development of McNabb, he'll also be key in the RE-development of Daunte.

    I do not dwell on last year; only next year.

    Del u can't tell me u didn't see the D getting better soon after he came in..

    It isn't because of him.. But it takes a few games to get into it..

    We started getting pick after pick and got more sacks.. Check the stats and u will see.. It does have to do with the crappy teams we started playing then..But regardless the D was playing better
