I iknow yet another Culpepper thread, but this is something that is breaking news. If it needs to be moved, then fine but thought this is where it needed to be..



Culpepper: Trade me, or terminate my contractESPN.com news services


Daunte Culpepper's days in Minnesota might be numbered.


Culpepper

The quarterback, due a $6 million roster bonus on March 17, released a statement to ESPN on Wednesday that read:

"Now that I have confirmed that the Vikings have been seeking to trade me, I have asked for permission to speak to the interested teams. The Vikings have denied my request. If a trade does not happen then I am asking the Vikings to terminate my contract as soon as possible. I appreciate that the owner, Mr. Wilf, is willing to pay my March bonus. However, because of the fundamental differences I have with management regarding the approach to my personal and professional life, I think it is the best business decision for both parties to go our separate ways. If the team chooses not to honor my request, then I intend to fulfill my contractual obligations to the Minnesota Vikings."

If this is true I would drop him within the hour. Last thing the Vikings need is a whiner leader that doesn't want to be playing for them.


However, because of the fundamental differences I have with management regarding the approach to my personal and professional life, I think it is the best business decision for both parties to go our separate ways.

It appears to me that the Vikings organization has been bending over backwards to accomodate him and yet he cries. Sad.

Daunte is finished in Minnesota if this is true. I'm not even saying that he's in the wrong here....but by venting to the media...again....he's coming off as the jerk here...IMO.

Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out, your too big of a pansy to wear the Vikings armor anymore.

He always has been an emotional head case on the field now we see that he truley is a mess all around.

I would make him fulfill his contract now, only make his ass sit on the bench.

Now the question is will Wilf kiss his ass or will he tell him who is boss?

Agree, wuss.

I am really interested in seeing how Wilf/Childress handle this latest egocentric tirade. I have no respect left for Daunte, I was almost to the stage of being an apologist for him at one point. Those days are long gone. Screw you Daunte. Walk the plank.

What a shitty deal for Wilf. He buys the team after Red ships Moss out, no stadium, horrible coaching, a state that doesn't want to help funding, and about the only thing going for it was it's QB had a great 2004 breaking records and looking like a million bucks.

Now the shit has really hit the fan.

I pray to high heavens we have a fantastic draft/free agency.

This is way out of line for any player to do. Sure the organization has been jerking him around a little ... but he has not exactly been the most accesible guy to anyone he does not one to talk to.
This is a sad day in Vikingdom ... and I hope that C-Pep finds his way wherever he lands.

I have always been kind of indrefferent about Cpep. This however is the last straw.

If we do trade him I just hope that we get more then a Big Mac and a large fry.

Well i guess a Big Mac and a fry is better then cutting him.

at least the Vikes know that they can't go into the season with DC on the roster. Now they can and should go after Drew Brees with full force, because a QB like that doesn't become available everyday. I have always thought DC was a bit of a headcase, but this is some crazy stuff man. When they traded Randy, I wanted him to do well. I want Daunte to fall flat on his face, like years of his season last year. If they don't go after Brees or don't get him, they NEED to go get a higher pick in the draft and insure that they can get someone like Cutler.

What a jackass. He just flushed his trade value down the toilet. I don't even care if we get a third round draft pick now, just get rid of him. Otherwise, I agree with Del, sit his dumb ass on the bench as the third string QB, and don't let him see an ounce of playing time in 2006. Then ship him off to the highest bidder.

Jerk.

That rumor about going full force for Brees is looking sweeter by the second. I like pepp to, but this is like a T.O. situation all over for Childress. I much prefer to have Drew Brees, now with Pepp acting like this, it will make that decision so much easier for the Vikes to make now..

See ya Pepp, thanks for the few great seasons that you had for us, but now you have to try and rebuild your game, and image with another team. You only have yourself to blame for that.. Good riddance, don't let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya..

happy camper
03-08-2006, 10:08 PM
We won't get a good trade.

4th round pick maybe?

We should get Brees before we trade him. Then it's the big FA QB off the market and maybe more teams will want Daunte and maybe that creates an auction.

But then again, maybe NOBODY will bid on him if we get Brees, because they know we'll just release Daunte eventually and then they'll try to get him.

Screw it. Just let him walk.

here's a thought, do you think it would be worth it to pay him the 8mil total he is due this year and sit him on the bench while he gets healthy... then trade him next year for a first rounder? Do you think it would be worth it,....essentially paying 8 mil for a first rounder?

Del Rio
03-08-2006, 10:10 PM
We should trade him to the Jets. Because if he gets his feelings hurt in Minnesota just think what kind of great stories and press we will get to read about from the NY fan base.

Honestly I think whatever we do we should do it this year. Especially if the CBA doesn't pass tonight. Free up even more cap space to use during this talent filled free agency period.

What happened to the core of our team? Moss and Cpep. Looks like he's on his way out, but this all kinda sucks . . . in theory at least, but it looks like he's burned his bridges with this team and its fans. I miss Moss. At least his antics were amusing, not whiny.

Nope. Just had to check and see if hell was freezing over. :lol: Anyway, Del's right. We should get what we can now, while we can still get it. besides. it would free up a butt load of cap room, and we can use it to bring in more talent.

Trade Pep - if he doesn't wanna be here he won't play too well...

Aggressively land RB (Edge hopefully) in FA, look to the draft this year in the 1st round (or next) for our next franchise QB.

Ya know, a guy like Culp wouldn't last long in my racket. He starts out great, gets da big head, impresses everyone, and now he's squealin' to da press like some punk mobster wannabe who's still wet behind da ears. Guys like dat, we takes for a ride, y'know?

I know he's been joiked around by da management, but, he's doin' his share himself, stayin' in Florida to rehab, and not meetin' da new head coach face ta face, like a man, y'know? And now dis.

Well, I don't want no mug on dis team dat ain't got no poiple heart, y'know? I agrees wit' Del. Let's have a great free agency and draft! And den we won't have no bad taste in our mouths about dis Culpepper mug no more, y'know?

I'll be glad to be the one to boot him in his ass and send him on his way..

I've always supported PeP, and now he comes out with this weak statement?......

He sounds like a frigging cry baby for crying out load.

I can just imagine if wilf and the others agreed to his shallow offer of " you can even hold off on my bonus crap, I want to help the team" he would have thrown that in the teams and oweners face every time he got a chance to down the road......Smart move on Wilfs part to not take that bait.

I was truly hoping Pep would turn it around and start stepping up, but since the injury, he's done nothing but hide and feed the flames himself on the rumor mills being built out there.

I'll burn his shirt the day he is gone.....Hell, I'll do it tonight.....

Good Bye you big dick...............I'm sorry I ever believed in you to begin with..

When Moss went out I stood up for the decision, relying on Culpepper to carry the team. Watching the events unfold I feel really bad for supporting Pep and praising Moss' departure because IMO I have come to realize that:

Culpepper wanted money and to have his back rubbed by management, he was willing to hop through hoops and be a good boy to get his treats.

Moss wanted to win.

While I didn't agree with Moss' antics and his attitude all the time if I had this info prior I would be begging for their roles to be switched.

Daunte has been a baby ever since he got hurt...did not support the team...stayed in Miami rehabbing...he is a huge (injured and may never be the same) quarterback that is now one dimensional. He also has no clue how to run the West Coast offense. And why is he being such a wuss emailing the media. At least TO put in on film. Let that ship sail... :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

The best the Vikings were going to get for a 'mobile' QB with his injury was a conditional pick in '07. They might have a hard time getting even that now.

If the CBA doesnt go through, you could get Edge and Brees this offseason and sign others as well. You could even play one another off each other to make it happen.

I say trade Pepp to like the Redskins for Patrick Ramsey as our backup. If we can go after Brees and get him, let him and BJ fight for the starting position.. Or another scenario would be to get Gus Ferotte back as our backup, possibly trading Pepp for O-Line help.. Either way we need to get rid of Pepp, I never thought I would hear myself say that, but we are better off without that distraction... Plus it would rid ourselves of bad publicity over the Boat Scandal, it would make it look like Wilf is getting rid of the problems..

LAVike

That's just great. Had we traded Cpep after his MVP deserving season, we woulda been loaded with options (1st rounders, and the like). After last year's debacle, and multiple knee tears, he's worth about a $1.50. No one wants to trade anything for him now, 'cause they see the $6 mil roster bonus approaching and figure the Vikes will just release him--costing whichever team nothing. Ugh . . . just sad. I guess we'll see how this plays out shortly.

http://www.kffl.com/images/hot_sign.jpgVikings | Culpepper wants to be released
Wed, 8 Mar 2006 12:00:51 -0800

Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings QB Daunte Culpepper has said he would like the team to release him if the Vikings are not able to trade him. "Now that I have confirmed that the Vikings have been seeking to trade me, I have asked for permission to speak to the interested teams. The Vikings have denied my request," Culpepper said in an e-mail to the paper. "If a trade does not happen, then I am asking the Vikings to terminate my contract as soon as possible. ... Because of the fundamental differences I have with management regarding the approach to my personal and professional life, I think it is the best business decision for both parties to go our separate ways," Culpepper said.

That's actually pretty good idea but not really for that reason. I think most people would be offended if they were shopped around...how can you fault him for that. Back to the jets deal I like pep and hope he's around but if not cutler should be around @ their #1 and they're looking for a qb...

Man that really sucks either way.....The only problem with that is that the QB's after the top 3 this year are not that promising. I know there is a diamond in the rough, but what are the chances that we would get the next Brady? Not so hot, if we are going to draft a QB iwth the intention of making him the franchise in 08', then we need to trade up. Offer the Jets DC and our first rounder four #4 overall. Hell, throw in someone else, just get someone who can lead us in the future!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will be willing to bet that if we get Edge, McKinney is going NOWHERE!

I wouldn't cry if they packages Mckinnie and Pep together for a good lineman. That guy is always getting into trouble and being the best of the worst isn't anything to brag about. No sleep lost if he walks too.

I hate to say I told you so, but it was apparent that C-pep does not want to be with the Vikings or in Minnesota any more! I think that his wife is all over his sorry giggly butt about the boat trip and his being charged with lewd behavior! He doesn't want to come back here and his saying that he never asked for a raise is bullsh*t!

He was doing everything he could not to come back here, and for that Daunte you really disappoint me! You could have played this way different, it is not the Vikings fault, or their fans fault, that you and a bunch of other players got busted screwing around! Instead of blaming everybody else, be a man and realize that you screwed up and quit being the bbitch!

You wouldn't support the team after you got hurt, you wouldn't meet with your new coach face to face, you ask for a 10 million dollar raise even tho you might not be able to play this year, and may never be as good as you were! You did not want to come back, so quit acting like the one who has been wronged, grow up and be a man!

If we could get anything for you I would trade him, if not then cut his sorry a$$ and use the money to get Drew Breeze or trade for Matt Schaub from Atlanta!

We are not going to get a decent QB in the draft at the 17th spot. We would need to do some fancy trading to get up in the top four or five to even consider it. Maybe we could trade him and our #17 pick to the Jets for their #4 pick. Highly doubt it though...

I think we need to go FA. Brees is obviously the first choice, but Ramsey wouldn't be a bad deal either.

That's actually pretty good idea but not really for that reason. I think most people would be offended if they were shopped around...how can you fault him for that. Back to the jets deal I like pep and hope he's around but if not cutler should be around @ their #1 and they're looking for a qb...

I wont argue with you about him being justified in throwing a hissy fit over being shopped, all I will say is all his actions or lack of actions from the time he got hurt up until now have lead me to my comments not just this new information, this is just icing on the cake.

And yeah the Jets are a possibility but in the end I have a feeling he is just let go for cap space.

I've often wondered if that's why Wilf was shopping Pep in the first place. He has stated that he wanted to clean up this team, and getting rid of the starting QB (and the face of the franchise) is a strong message to send about each player's job security.

Agree and have agreed since day one whack.

The guy does not want to be here anymore and I also have felt a lot of it had to do with his wife. I think a lot of it also has to do with the Moss shadow and with the new ownership making him work for a living and not riding on the coattails of prior success like his buddy Tice did.

If this is ture... then hell yes I want him gone, our organization can't fall apart with a QB that is takin up so much money and really does not want to be in Minnesota. The only part that bothers me is... I don't want to wait around again for another "franchise".... (and dear god no one better awnser back Brad Johnson) QB to come about. I think we can have enough talent on this team next year to make a serious push to the SB. So we better get Drew... and give us a chance of a QB that can come in and make an immediate impact. I dont want to be like the Bears who last year was only really held back by not having a solid or experienced QB.

And another thing that really concerns me, is what about all the players that backed not trading Daunte. Some talked about how they came to Minnesota cause Daunte played here, and Mckinnie... sayin he would not want to play here when his contract is up, if Daunte is gone. That stuff is what concerns me the most... is how our team responds to a new QB. And will it affect new players from wanting to come here... without his face stamping our franchise anymore??? Just a little concerned...

But if we already have the highest cap room in the NFL... now imagin what we would have... :) so that is exciting!!!

But either way... I am sure we will be finding out Daunte's fate soon... cause with Free Agency... just around the corner... if we are gunna need to make plans for making a run at a QB... we will need to hop to that!
WOW the suspense and the unknown of all this crap... scares the hell out of me!!!

What's up........Dolphin fan here just checking in on the Minn fan base reaction to this latest development.

IMO, you guys are still in a very good position in all of this. With all of the cap space that you have, you can afford to sign Brees w/o cutting Culpepper and then QB hungry teams (like the Dolphins) will be more inclined to deal for him, with no other viable options on the market.

I think that a conditional 2007 3rd round pick which could escalate as high as a 1st rounder would be worth doing for both teams.

Schaub is good, he has poise. He would be a great fit as a WCO QB.. I wouldn't mind having him either. I still think the Vikes will go full force after Drew Brees though. I just think that if we get Brees, Johnson will be unhappy to the point that he will ask for a trade. I think it is safe that we go after a castoff like Gus Ferotte as well just to cover our asse$..

Ugh...we're screwed if we trade him, and we have a huge problem QB on our hands if we don't. This is one sticky, smelly situation. I think I'm going to puke. :pukeright:

But then again, Daunte is not in a good position to do this right now. He won't get signed for much. He KNOWS that any team that signs him will renegotiate for even less than he's already making, so if he's pissed off about money, this is the wrong move.

If the Vikings keep him, he has no choice but to play as well as he can or things will get even worse. The Vikes will want to pay him less and will probably trade him to a team who will renegotiate his contract for even less than they would if the Vikings released him now. That's why this move puzzles me. He's either remarkably stupid or he's bluffing his @$$ off.

I say we give him a hard kick in the @$$, a "nice try, wise guy," and one season to raise his stock. It would really be the best option for him to do a good job here rather than leave and get paid even less.

(Of course, a change of scenery might lead to a decrease in the number of his own team's fans who hate his guts).

My best advice would be if you see one that seems pointless to you, to just pass on by it and worry about the information itself.

Some people are at work and have filters that do not allow them to access certain sites, if some guy can't read the full story on ESPN but a different link is given with the same information gains him/her access then it has served him well. If it doesn't serve you well no harm no foul.

What doesn't serve anyone well is arguing about it with the person who posted it. If it bothers you alot it can be discussed via pm with the overlord.

It's really sad how this is all going down...personally, I think the media started it and made Daunte's stay in Minnesota a living hell. But regardless of what happens, it might not necessarily translate much to DC's play on the field. He always tries hard at playing. Far too often, contract squabbles like this lead to massive trades of "problem" players (even in basketball, i.e. Sam Cassell to the Clippers). This may be justified, but it depends on the context, and I think it's clear that Daunte isn't a distraction on the field. The "T.O. Model" of dealing with player disputes is not an absolute, fail-proof method. If he's an intelligent, logical human being, DC won't let this affect his play on the football field. If it does, THEN we trade him for whatever we can get out of him.

If stupid B.S. like this leads to poor play, THEN it's enough to justify a trade. But I'm already tired of initiating trades based solely on the stupid B.S. itself. Were we a better, less-distracted team without Moss? No. It was a stupid trade that had little or no justification other than off-the-field issues.

T.O. deserved to be axed because his actions and words were very closely related to the game itself. Daunte shouldn't get traded YET.

If he wants out, trade him now. Get what you can, not that any team is going to offer much knowing that he wants out, and address the QB need ASAP!!! I would hate to see the Vikings get nothing for him. At this point,maybe a 2nd round pick isn't so out of the question like it seemed a couple weeks ago.Maybe the Raiders, now that Collins is gone, would be intrested ??????What if the team keeps him?????????

I can't say that I am surprised by this news. When Pep came to MN for his knee, just after Childress was hired and couldn't make the time to meet with the new coach, I had a feeling that his days were numbered. In fact I posted as much. What sucks is by making this announcement he has killed his worth to the team and is forcing Wilf to cut his a$$ before the 6mil has to be paid. Pep has insured he will get hired by another team quickly because it will not cost them anything to pick him up. Basically he just screwed the Vikes with this announcement.

I have posted several time that BJ would be our starting QB next year. I don't see that changing at this point. I think that Pep knew he couldn't make the grade with the WC offense and with Childress. His snotty comments about the "triangle of authority" recently was a real tip off to me about where he was at with the new owners.

See this thread (http://www.purplepride.org/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=318737#318737)

Even if he does get healthym he proved last year that he can't read defenses. If he knows b4 the play where he is going, he did great, but every time he had to make actual decisions, he f'ed it up.

No team in their right mind would trade because the Vikings would release him prior to his bonus.

That is unless they were worried that there will be a lot of competition for him and miss out to a different team.

I would let him walk, no bonus no nothing. Leave his destiny in his hands. He played hard for us for a few years, I like teh idea that he gets to contact teams and make his own decision. The cap space will be reward enough.

Honestly DaunteHOF, I was with you up until today. In fact, I have often argued with other members on this forum regarding Daunte.

Yes he is one of the best QBs this franchise has ever seen. He probably still is, as I have faith he will come back from his injury. But this is it. He has officially stated that he no longer wants to be in Minnesota. Not just to the point of asking for a trade, but asking to be traded or cut. He is basically saying that he wants to do whatever it takes to get the hell out of Minny.

So let him go.

The Vikings don't need Daunte to be great.

By the way...don't think for a second that this is the Vikings' doing. Daunte has been lobbying to get traded since his injury, even though it hasn't been directly. Not meeting with Childress face to face, asking for more money and storming out of Winter Park were all measures to force the Vikings' hand in this matter. It appears as if he's succeeded. If he gets what he wants, then I say good for him.

I used to be a huge Daunte fan, and up until a month or so ago I was, but as I said in my prior post my opinion of him has dropped dramatically. He went from someone who I respected a lot and thought could mature into a great leader into someone who I now see as a cry baby and a spoiled athlete. I know he doesn't care, but he's lost a fan in this little Viking.

Dude, you are in the minority here on this thread. As if you couldn't ell, nobody but you really wants Pepp on this team anymore since he made this selfish statement. He is the one who brought it on himself. He was in Minnesota soon after Childress got hired, Childress wanted to meet face to face with his new QB, and Pepp flagged him and went back to FLA, and called him on the phone.

Pepp is a baby. He looks out for himself, and himself only. He doesn't care at all about the Vikings orginization. He shows that through his actions. He is pissed because he knows he is damaged goods, and he has just burned the only bridge that he had. He may pick up with another team, but now everyone is on to him..

The best part about this situation is that now Wilf, and Childress don't have to look like liars and a$$holes by trading or releasing Pepp. I think the Vikes already knew something when Childress commented at the combine to never say never at this time of year about letting a player leave.

It appears to me that the Vikings organization has been bending over backwards to accomodate him and yet he cries. Sad.

This is a game played out on both sides, not just DC.

The Vikes have been shopping Pep.

Pep wants to be the one and only guy.

Pep doesn't like it.

Pep does say that if they won't let him go, he will fullfill his contract.

He wants the chance to shop himself around the league apparently.

POSTED 3:38 p.m. EST; UPDATED 4:22 p.m. EST, March 8, 2006



DAUNTE WANTS OUT OF MINNY



Little did former Eagles offensive coordinator Brad Childress realize that when he left Philly for the top job in Minny, he'd leave behind a situation involving a Pro Bowl player who wanted more money and then wanted out and find himself in another situation in which a Pro Bowl player wanted more money and now wants out.



The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Culpepper has e-mailed a statement requesting that the Vikings cut him, if they cannot trade him.



"Now that I have confirmed that the Vikings have been seeking to trade me, I have asked for permission to speak to the interested teams. The Vikings have denied my request," Culpepper, who is acting as his own agent, said. "If a trade does not happen, then I am asking the Vikings to terminate my contract as soon as possible.

"Because of the fundamental differences I have with management regarding the approach to my personal and professional life, I think it is the best business decision for both parties to go our separate ways," Culpepper added.

"If the team chooses not to honor my request, then I intend to fulfill my contractual obligations to the Minnesota Vikings."



Okay, what the f--k does that mean? If they can't trade him, he wants out. But if they won't let him go, then he'll stay.



How about Option C -- Culpepper pays back some of the signing bonus money he has received? After all, a signing bonus isn't a lottery prize; it's advance compensation for services to be rendered in the future. If he wants out of his contract with eight years remaining on it, he needs to cough up a corresponding chunk of the money he received when the contract was signed.



That's precisely what LaVar Arrington did to win his freedom from Washington recently, giving up $4.4 million in deferred signing bonus money.



In Culpepper's case, however, the agent he fired several weeks back for doing a bad deal in 2003 was at least smart enough to insert a clause into Daunte's deal requiring the team to pay a $6 million roster bonus in the middle of March. So if the team isn't inclined to let him walk, the team nevertheless has to give him $6 million for the privilege of retaining his services.



Well player, Culpepper. Well, played.



Actually, we're being sarcastic, since in our view it was wrong for him to air the dirty laundry to the media. The team didn't go public regarding its efforts to trade him, and the front office generally has bent over backward to kiss his big, fat butt of late, even after he demanded a $10 million raise for 2006.



Still, we can't imagine anyone trading anything other than a conditional pick in 2007 and/or 2008, based on his ability to play in 2006 and/or 2007, respectively. The guy is a streaky, emotional player, and he's damaged goods.



We said it a year ago -- they should have traded Culpepper instead of Moss.



Now, it looks like they'll have neither.

Some serious Daunte hatred here. I like the idea of having Daunte pay back some of his signing bonus to get out of his contract early...aka Lavar.

I think Culpepper has started seeing the writing on the wall that the
team is likely to release him if it can't find a decent trading
partner. When a player feels like he's about to be released, the
first thing he usually does is ask to be released so it appears to be
his own decision.

"I appreciate that the owner, Mr. [Zygi] Wilf, is willing to pay my March bonus," Culpepper said in the e-mail. "However, because of the fundamental differences I have with management regarding the approach to my personal and professional life, I think it is the best business decision for both parties to go our separate ways. If the team chooses not to honor my request, then I intend to fulfill my contractual obligations to the Minnesota Vikings."

This was Daunte's statement at the end of his email and my thought is this:

He got caught being less than a a stellar role model and the media (in any town) will take that and run with it. It has been that way with Daunte. I will also say this...he asked for some of his treatment when he started "pouting" and not showing up to his home games to support his teammates last year. That leads me to the last part of the quote about fulfilling his "contractual obligations":

If that is all you are doing here (if the Vikes keep you) then I hope you sit the bench all year and stay our of our way of trying to win games...better yet Daunte...stay in Florida and keep showing us all what a "professional" you are. I promise that we will show you the same courtesy.

Until next time...

At this point, if he gave me that kind of ultimatum, I'd show him the door. Sorry Pep fans but he is in no condition to be like that. He's coming off an very off year. You can blame the line if you want whcih I did but the bottom line is people look for QBs that can handle that type of pressure. Plus the fact, he won't be able to play till about mid season if he's lucky. If we cut him, people would be nuts to pick him up unless he is willing to come cheap his first year.

Let's see how Pep likes making nothing versus shutting his trap and making what he could have made if he did shut his trap.

Yes, it's a two way street. Culpepper is the man that is going to the press and calling himself out.



Pep hater will keep on hate'n

This part is false. There are plenty of previous Culpepper supporters (me for one) that are no longer supporters based on his handling of issues the last few months. On page one of this thread I wrote:


Agree, wuss.

I am really interested in seeing how Wilf/Childress handle this latest egocentric tirade. I have no respect left for Daunte, I was almost to the stage of being an apologist for him at one point. Those days are long gone. Screw you Daunte. Walk the plank.

That was my first declaration of not supporting Daunte. It is my final decision now. If he ends up on the team I hope he rides the pine. The only way I would ever be a fan of his again is if he came clean and had a major change in his attitude.

BTW Josdin, it was never a repeat post to start with. It was a post on the same topic from a different source (KFFL reporting an article from the Pioneer Press whereas the first article was from ESPN). The rookie created confusion when the standard posting protocol was being followed.

I'll ask again... Is it too late to allocate his jiggly butt to NFL Europe??? Seriousally, what are the cap implications of doing that? Let him play a year there and one of three things will happen: He will begg to come back; he will get better, then we trade him; or he will suck and we cut him. Reguardless, he doesn't get the last laugh and he is not a locker room cancer. Is this even a possibility? Im not sure how the whole NFL Europe thing works...

A big thing to consider is this...DAUNTE WILL NOT BE READY TO PLAY BY THE TIME THE 2006 SEASON STARTS!

Having been around athletes a time or two and talking with them about Daunte's injury...this knee is a HUGE deal and only a miracle rehab would put him on the field (safely) before mid next year anyway...and I for one do not want a new QB (don't care who it is) on the field mid season if we are doing OK.

Please , everyone, keep that in mind. It does not matter what the doctor's hope or feel...it's not going to happen. Two words...Willis McGahee. The Bills sat him an entire year and still they were cautious when he finally hit the field. The other thing to consider is the fact that the old Daunte we loved...BIG, STOUT QB...will be gone. He will have to keep his weight down to take stress off that knee from here on out. He will not be the same Daunte. Will he be better? Time tells that but we won;t even be able to see that fully until 2007...mark my words.

Now, do we hang onto him? With the cap being what it is and the Vikes being in a great money situation I do not see why not...unless his attitude is that of what we have been reading...then I just don't want him around the guys who are there to win. His hurt leg will be the smallest of our problems. His bad attitude could be a disease that runs through the group and I don't want that. If all Daunte can do is talk about himself and what he is going to get out of it, then he's not the team guy I would hope he would be. If he is going to email the media about his feelings then I don;t want him...it smells too much like "T.O. B.O. B.S.". Do you honestly think Childress (or anyone reading this) wants that in the locker room? It took some big "uh ohs" before they finally had enough of T.O. and said BUH BYE...Childress will not wait that long.

Just remember, the knee won't be ready so all this is just mindless ramblings.

Until next time...

That is a really good point. A lot of people here (myself included) are expecting us to make a huge push for Brees now. But what if we don't get him?

I think we keep BJ as our starter, maybe pick up Ramsey or somebody as his backup, and build a super strong cast around him. We can make a strong push for a Superbowl this year with BJ at the helm. Hell, he did it before. His superbowl vistory came on the strength of those around him. I feel that we can do it again.

But all the same i would still rather have Brees. :wink:

The new era is beginning and I love it. Wilf wants a winning team and is at least willing to invest some coinage into building that team. This will be the most fun offseason, possibly ever, for Vikings fans. Most of us always go into the upcoming season with dark purple shades on and we anticipate the season with optimism. The 'new look' Vikings will be unfolding before our eyes over the next few months.

What change. BJ was our QB last year and will be next year unless we get a FA that can beat him out of the position. BJ went 7-2 and gave us a winning season with the same line that Pep went 2-5 with. With the better line we will have with Birk coming back and a good O coach I think we will be just fine with BJ. He isn't the long term answer for the team because of his age but he will do really well this next year I think. He is a WC QB and thats what we are going to play. He still has a couple of good years left in him IMO. I think he is good enough to take us to the big dance if he gets the supporting cast we need like a RB and a coordinated defense. The truth is that Moss made Daunte not the other way around. Let him go fumble and throw int's for somebody else. :wink: Go Brad. :thumbright:

Yeah, the pressure is on...but there could be more pressure. The worse case scenario is the Vikes start off the season with BJ and pick up a seasoned has-been as a backup if they don't get anything done during FA or the draft. Hopefully that won't happen, but we have a SB winning starter with BJ and you can never forget that Trent Dilfer has a ring....that means anything is possible in my eyes.

Just to make things a little more exciting BJ has to give the press a call and say he wants out. lmao, imagine that whirlpool of discussion.

However, because of the fundamental differences I have with management regarding the approach to my personal and professional life, I think it is the best business decision for both parties to go our separate ways.

It appears to me that the Vikings organization has been bending over backwards to accomodate him and yet he cries. Sad.

This is a game played out on both sides, not just DC.

The Vikes have been shopping Pep.

Pep wants to be the one and only guy.

Pep doesn't like it.

Pep does say that if they won't let him go, he will fullfill his contract.

He wants the chance to shop himself around the league apparently.

Pep and Wilf have a lot of explaining to do.

Oh well! Life goes on!

Pep hater will keep on hate'n
Pep Lovers will keep on Love'n

And when/if he is still in purple next season, the boo bird will only fly for a few games and all will be forgotten.

A big thing to consider is this...DAUNTE WILL NOT BE READY TO PLAY BY THE TIME THE 2006 SEASON STARTS!

Having been around athletes a time or two and talking with them about Daunte's injury...this knee is a HUGE deal and only a miracle rehab would put him on the field (safely) before mid next year anyway...and I for one do not want a new QB (don't care who it is) on the field mid season if we are doing OK.

Please , everyone, keep that in mind. It does not matter what the doctor's hope or feel...it's not going to happen. Two words...Willis McGahee. The Bills sat him an entire year and still they were cautious when he finally hit the field. The other thing to consider is the fact that the old Daunte we loved...BIG, STOUT QB...will be gone. He will have to keep his weight down to take stress off that knee from here on out. He will not be the same Daunte. Will he be better? Time tells that but we won;t even be able to see that fully until 2007...mark my words.

Now, do we hang onto him? With the cap being what it is and the Vikes being in a great money situation I do not see why not...unless his attitude is that of what we have been reading...then I just don't want him around the guys who are there to win. His hurt leg will be the smallest of our problems. His bad attitude could be a disease that runs through the group and I don't want that. If all Daunte can do is talk about himself and what he is going to get out of it, then he's not the team guy I would hope he would be. If he is going to email the media about his feelings then I don;t want him...it smells too much like "T.O. B.O. B.S.". Do you honestly think Childress (or anyone reading this) wants that in the locker room? It took some big "uh ohs" before they finally had enough of T.O. and said BUH BYE...Childress will not wait that long.

Just remember, the knee won't be ready so all this is just mindless ramblings.

Until next time...

Any talk about the knee is purely speculative. This has never happened to Daunte before, and I doubt that you know his physical characteristics well enough to determine that he won't be well enough by midseason. Although it might not be the most likely series of events, different people heal in different ways.

He is making millions of dollars a year playing a game. A game. He is supposed to be the field general and is crying to the press because his feelings are hurt. Poor Daunte. If that's all the spine he has, he should be digging latrines for minimum wage rather than leading the team into war.

I loved watching Daunte play and was a supporter of him for years. He is showing his true character. When times get tough the true character of a man comes out. We are seeing his true character, and I, for one, don't like what I see.

Just watched them talk about it on espn, mort thinks it will happen in the next couple weeks. Few teams hea mentioned was Baltimore, Miami, and possible the raiders if they let kollins go, he said probably not arizona this year anywyas.

I wonder about the jets, perhaps we can figure out a deal to send daunte and some other fellas and our first round pick for theirs? I am sure i am dreaming but its ok to dream.

ummm, it appears that he dismissed himself.


"Now that I have confirmed that the Vikings have been seeking to trade me, I have asked for permission to speak to the interested teams. The Vikings have denied my request," Culpepper said in an e-mail to the paper. "If a trade does not happen, then I am asking the Vikings to terminate my contract as soon as possible. ... Because of the fundamental differences I have with management regarding the approach to my personal and professional life, I think it is the best business decision for both parties to go our separate ways," Culpepper said.
Exactly right Prophet. Its not the Vikes that have asked for this. They denied his request to talk to interested teams. I thought it was interesting that he included his personal life in the statement he made. They probably told him no more boat rides and he said WTF is up with that. :lol:

What can we get for Culpepper? I love the guy but, I am a Vikings fan not any particular person on the team. The team must move on. We are going to end up in a T.O situation. We will have to sit him because he does not want to play here and cant trade him because teams will not give us what he is worth. The Vikings will say his conduct is causing distruction to the team so, we will basically end up suspending him for the season until another team coughs up a random player and a draft pick. Just my opinion.

I get the feeling Daunte, and core group of 4 or 5 others, were probably deliberately playing bad this year because they were unhappy with the management/coaches. Tice alluded to this rather cryptically a couple of times in the season: at one point saying he didn't know if the players were hanging him out to dry or not, and later on in the season saying they've found and isolated the troublemakers. It seems a lot of the players from the Denny Green era aren't happy things aren't the same they used to be. Who knows, there's a lot of bookies out there giving money away to those who will assure a certain point spread or win loss for their team also.

I have been accused of being emotional about DC.

But, I think it is all of you that say ToHellW/DC that are being emotional.

You are all hurt that he doesn't want to be on your team. You say you do't care but you obviously do or it wouldn't be such a HOT BUTTON issue.

At this point, I am not for DC, or against him. I am not taking the stand either way. This is a business thing between the 2 parties and we are not involved. Everyone is entitled to their opinions!

My team is the Vikings!

I want whoever will make them a better team to play for them and win.

At this time, I think that player is DC. There is nothing emotional about that. I don't feel that his near MVP season was a fluke. I saw the transition he made over the 2 years leading up to that season and feel that I saw something that makes him the best QB for this team.

Once he or any player steps on the field, to play for a team, all this crap gets left behind. See Rickey Williams last season and all the stuff he said about the Dolphins and what the Dolphins said about him prior to him coming back.

I am not blind, I can see the possible scenarios here and the fact that DC may leave or he may be back. But that doesn't make me want to go burn his jersey. I think we just been cursed for another 25 years or something for that burning of a Viking jersey :roll: , com'on give it to a poor kid or something :oops: .

Seriously, simmer down (pun intended)!!!

I understand why the Vikings are trying to shop him in a hush hush fashion, to see what they can get for him, but in a way, I can understand DC point also. He feels like they are using him as bait. I wouldn't want to be bait. DC needs to get an agent and get out of the business aspect. I hope he will atleast realize that.

Pepp has been there for years and these new guys come in and start changing everything. I'd be pissed too. You guys don't know how that feels. How would you feel if you had vested five or six years in a company then have a new boss come in and tell you how stuff was gonna be run! Pepp will do well and I'm starting to dislike the Vikes Tiangle Authority.
