  • Culpepper signs with Raiders

    I can buy that. Play him the one year while Russell learns, I think this would actually be the team that could use Culpepper given his situation the most, I'm not sure if this is where Culpepper would be best off for his own sake though. Being a backup somewhere else may make him look better than playing with an offense that was as bad as Oakland was last year.

      Somebody should tell Daunte that Moss was traded...

        Haha

        My quick, suprising prediction
        If Culpepper goes to OAK, he wont beat out McCown

          They should just stick with Josh McCown while JaMarcus develops.

            They could have saved themselves the first overall pick and just gotten him in the first place; Very similar skillsets if you ask me.

              Well except for the fact that Culpepper's knee went through a shredder, he's 30 years old, Russell has more mobility, and Culpepper's future is in question whether he will actually ever be able to play again.

              Yeah, other than that, yeah, I see the resemblance.

              Oldie but a goodie.

                What they said, I really dont think Daunte is a starter anymore

                  LOL. Reminds me of Shiver post on Gaines Adams/Mario Williams.
                  The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                    Mccown has never been nor will ever be a starter.
                    "We're only going to score 17 points?" Brady said before chuckling about it. "OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points."

                      I think the Raiders would be better off passing on Culpepper. All they need is a caretaker quarterback until Russell is ready to start and there is a decent chance that it will be this year anyway.

                        I would welcome him. With there being trouble getting Jamarcus into camp and it seems like it could be a while before his contract gets resolved, he wont be ready to play much this year. And it looks like the Raiders are trying hard to get some competition at the QB position, not just give the job to McCown. We brought in Cody Pickett the other day and with Walter continuing to struggle and Russell still in Alabama, Culpepper could be a nice addition and he could very well help this team. But I would say we should only sign him if we are extremely confident he is healthy, in good shape and would be ready to start the season opener if we asked him to, and it would have to be a 1 year deal or 2 at the most because the job is Jamarcus' next year.

                          He started for the Cardinals for parts of the '03 and '05 seasons, and most of the '04 season.

                            it doesn't matter who the raiders stick under center before JaMarcus, because they are just there to keep the seat warm and take sacks until he's learned enough of the playbook to step on the field. Much like Kerry Collins for the Titans.

                              Yup, we should've drafted CJ and just brought in a average/decent QB (Drew Bledsoe, Jeff Garcia, Tim Rattay, etc) during free agency and look for a franchise QB next year or so. . . I'm still not sold on Russell being the franchise of our football team. Only time will tell, though.
