I have been having a debate over at the "other site" about whether Culpepper should be cut or if he should stay as our QB next year assuming he is healthy.

Most say they should cut him for various reasons.
Mainly they believe he can't lead a team, he can't read a defense, he can't hold onto the ball and he is no good without Randy Moss.

My opinion is that he wasn't totally responsible for this years problems and I think you can't cut a pro bowler becuase of 4-5 bad games in which the entire team played bad.

What are your thoughts? I want to know if I am the only one that thinks he should stay. It sure seems like it based off the opinions at the other site.

I have mixed feelings on this. First off, I don't think he is going to be completely healed by next season. Even if he says he is, he will be even more tenative then he was this season and that was one of his main problems. He thinks too much. As for cutting him, I think we should keep him because he will eventually become a fantastic qb. The problem is that I don't think the fans can wait another year while he gets into the groove again and I think it is going to take that long before he is going to be comfortable playing. So when it comes to cutting him I would say no. The problem that management has is that to keep him as a gimp for a year is going to cost big bucks and I am not sure they will be willing to pay out money for someone who is not going to produce. Tie that in with a new owner and it makes the decisions the Vikes are going to have to make in the off-season even more difficult. They have a lot of decisions to make for next year from management, qb, running backs, offensive line all through the club.

I can tell you one thing. It sure is going to be interesting.

Granted, he may be great one day but I would get rid of him. The problem is that he is worth nothing right now if we wanted to trade him. No one is going to take a "gimp."

Culpepper has all the attributes needed to be a great qb. He is much too valuable to cut, which would never happen. He may be dealt for, but I believe the Vikes would be foolish to do so. Furthermore, He is not the problem for the Vikings. Tice has got to go. I am sure he is a nice person and all of that. But, in 41 years of watching Viking football, I have never seen a more UNDISCIPLINED bunch of professional football players. And you have to blame this on the Viking leadership. Look at the jumping the snap last Sunday. Lord, this was the 14th game of the season and they looked like pre-season. You have to lay this on Tice. Granted, he is the lowest paid coach in the NFL. He looks it. Wilf has to get a top notch coach, and with the talent (including Culpepper) the Vikings have they will excell. A word about Brad Johnson. I know him, as he lives in my hometown. He is a wonderful man and a fine qb. But, all good things come to an end. And, he is close to the end of a great career in the NFL. So, you have to work with Culpepper and he needs better coaching than he has had since being at Minnesota.

The last post echoed alot of my feelings. If you want to upgrade talent the easiest way to do it is through the coaching staff. You are not going to be able to find a QB significantly better then Culpepper.
Tice seems like a good guy but I think we can upgrade at his position. Billick may be available, I would like him to come here there are also several other quality coaches that will be available.

We need an NFL coach not a glorified assistant. Give Culpepper the proper coaching and watch him take off in a big way.

DO NOT GET RID OF CULPEPPER!!!! Don't you see? Before McCombs left, he stripped this team of any chance of competing by selling EVERYTHING to the lowest bidder. We have the least paid coach. The least paid management. The least amount of money for players.... everything. This is not Culpeppers fault. We need a new coach, some new players and new management to compete. McCombs knew the team was going to be sold and he spent the least amount possible to keep the team running. Well, this is reflected in this years team. We need some professionals in there. Since Tice hired outside help, the team has been doing much better. There are still massive discipline problems though. This is purely the coaching effort. Like the past post said, the team is playing like a pre-season team.

It was a nice run with Culpepper, and with Johnson, but this is not a team I would pay to go see. Now the Bears are a football club I would spend a $100.00 to watch.
I guess that's because I love a team build around the D. I want the meanest, big hitting, hard nose, football players around, and that starts with the D.
For me, the job of a quaterback is to hand off the ball to a running back, and any rummy should be able to do that.
Give me a team that comes up and hits you in the mouth and says "do something about it", that is what make a football team.

I know he doesn't icefish. I heard he does some "fishing" on soft water though, out on Minnetonka ;-)
