He'll be alright, Culpepper is a strong man and hes been through worse. Its good to hear how hes doing. I'm even more pleased to hear about zigy and fowler both reaching out and helping him.

MARK MY WORDS!!!!!

Daunte is gonna be a better QB when he gets back on the field. This injury will make him more of a pocket QB and we know what pocket QB's do. They win Super Bowls

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.

I was most impressed with hearing about the owners stepping up and doing everything they can to be there to help daunte out. They have plenty to be happy about and celebrate and it is so good to see them not leaving a man behind and doing what they can to help DC. I really hope to see him back on the field next. I miss that smile of his

I agree its really nice to have some quality ownership for a change. I hope CP's recovery goes well and we see him back in purple next spring.

i agree, another example of how zygi wasn't just talking about being a world-class organization, he is showing more in his first season than red showed in all of his.

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.

Willis Mcgahee had the same injury.. And he is at 100 percent I would say.. It might slow him down a lil.. but he isn't know for his speed anyway.. He is just a big guy and runs when its there

Pep will be fine guys!

The official vikings website has the full transcript of Culpepper's statements:
http://www.vikings.com/news_detail_OBJECTNAME_CulpepperStatement113005.html

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.

At least the surgery seems to have gone well, we can only hope the rest of his re-hab does too.

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!!

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.

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.

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 ...

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.

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
