    Dante Culpepper?

    What happened to this guy? At this time last year, he was Miami's next Dan Marino, and now he's nowhere to be found. He was supposed to be the QB of the future in Miami. And now there is all this talk of bringing in Trent Green and drafting Brady Quinn, where does Culpepper fit in? I mean he has had his troubles, but he threw for 4700 yards not long ago. He is a physical specimen with tons of potential, why is he jsut being discarded in Miami?

    Didn't seem to affect the way Brad Johnson played in place of the injured Daunte. Daunte struggled without Moss, but had shown in the past he was a good QB even when Moss was hurt. The real problem with Daunte has always been poor decision making, but when with Moss he was bailed out some of the time. Now with out his mobility Daunte will really need to learn more about reading coverages and making the correct reads instead of relying on his talents to make plays.

If he gets released because we bring in Trent Green I will be very disappointed.
    I would be disappointed as well, I think Culpepper still has a couple seasons left in him and I really hope he can come back to his old self. A lot of people feel that if Trent Green were to come to Miami that would mean Culpepper would be on his way out since we can't "afford" two starting QB salaries. Green would actually be in Miami right now if he were willing to restructure and take a lesser deal, so Miami is trying to bring him in under a cheap/efficient contract meaning that they won't just cut Culpepper straight out. Another thing with Green is that most people feel he is being brought in to start, but I think Miami is just trying to bring him in a la Harrington to have a veteran backup that is capable of keeping us in games in case Culpepper hasn't fully recovered yet. I'm all for bringing in Green, as long as he is our veteran backup and is willing to restructure his current contract.

    I think Culpepper was just kind of in the right place, at the right time. Him and Moss complimented each other extremely nicely. He did terrible in the half a season without Moss in Minnesota, plus with Miami.

    I think that he was always somewhat overrated, but after the injury, he isnt anything more then a lower tier starter.

    He will also's be considered as a backup. Unless he heels right he's gonna be a back up for awhile.

    One of the worst drafting teams, and that draft was particularly bad. 1st round pick was Troy Williamson; 3rd round pick was Dustin Fox (who never played a single play in purple).

    "The Moss effect"

    Red McComb's cheapness.
    True, but brad johnson came in and didnt do too horrible. He had a decent season that same year.

    Wow, I'm pretty shocked with that. While I may not be C-Pep's biggest fan, I certainly don't think it's a wise decision to release him at this point. I mean, he came back too early from an injury and really didn't get much of a chance to gain a grasp of their offense.

    Culpepper still has a lot of potential but he tried to come back when he was still a world away. He was probably healthy by week 8 but by then Miami was going fairly well with Harrington. Culepper will probably get cut. go to a team needing a backup and end up rebuilding his career and being very successful once again.

    I think he is done in Miami. All that pounding took the toll finally.
