Culpepper leaves a whiner

43 posts in this topic

MIAMI (AP) - Daunte Culpepper, who starred for the Minnesota Vikings before a major knee injury in 2005 curtailed his career, retired from the NFL on Thursday.

Culpepper completed 64 percent of his passes in a nine-year career, with 142 touchdowns. He tried to resuscitate his career with the Miami Dolphins in 2006 and the Oakland Raiders last season, struggling in both of those stops, and wasn't in training camp with any teams this year.

"Since I was not given a fair chance to come in and compete for a job, I would rather move on and win in other arenas of life," Culpepper said.

He was revealed as a spare after not having Randy Moss to run under his long passes.

A headcase, and a no-tallent hack has no place in todays NFL.

After his injury and his recievers going else were, he was reveled as what he was. NO GOOD.

And some people (including Chris Carter) said the Vikings made a HUGE mistake letting him go.

Not even the lowly Dolphins or the Raiders could use him. Even when Denny Green was stil coaching in AZ did he want him.

He was never that good. The rest of the team made him look better than he was. They even made Cunningham (who was past his prime) look like the best quaterback in the NFL.

I thought he was awesome for the first couple years.

I loved it when he ran over people he was a double threat for a while anyway he did have arguably one of the best seasons a QB has ever had and I don't totally attribute it all to his teammates.

Then came the TURNOVERS, Fumbles, bad attitude and the injury which pretty much ended his career.

Plus he serves as his own agent. How many thousand dollars and how many second chances did that cost him?

Yeah that dummy should have had someone that specializes in selling people to teams give it a shot. He's too proud or full of himself, good riddens. He had a couple good years with the vikes but the fumbles, and turnovers cost him. With no mobility he's a below average QB and that doesn't cut it in the big show.

He had plenty of trouble reading the defense as well. Much like our current QB.

He did Sled, but honestly he was throwing to Chris Carter and Randy Moss in their prime and handing off to Robert Smith in his primed and doing it all behind the best line in football at the time. Oh and did I mention the other recievers and tight ends were also studs. MANY MANY QB's in the league could have produced that year.

Good Riddance to a big whining baby...

he claims he "wasnt given a shot" that is a bunch of [PoorWordUsage]. the packers offered him a one year, one million dollar deal. He would have been competing (but losing out in the end) to rodgers. There is no question that he should have signed there, from both sides. Green Bay would have rather had one other experienced qb on the roster instead of having to rely on matt flynn or brian brohm if rodgers goes down

I would take a million dollars a year to sit on the bench and hold a clip board

Whiner or not, he got his money. I guess he was talking about his time in Miami where he didnt fully get his chance? But he got his revenged last year when he played well there with the Raiders.

On the subject of talent, I dont just think it the players around you who needs to be talented. You yourself have to have talent also to complete the team.

ditto. shows what being greedy will get you. he wanted more money and to be "the guy". must be nice though to be able to turn down that kind of money.

Once these pro players get their big contracts, they feel they deserve nothing less in future contracts, regardless of their performance. crazy

Cpep didn't want to play all that bad if he's turning down $1M offers. He's got no one else to blame for his retirement than himself.

I don't think he had a lack of talent. He could run over linebackers in his prime. He could throw the long ball when he was confident. His short game was good too.

His attitude was terrible. He would not admit any wrongdoing in the boat scandal, which really got the management/owner [PoorWordUsage]'d. He was cocky when he should have been working to improve his game (remember that ridiculous arm rolling thing he did?) I never saw him working to get to the next level, which is something all great QBs have to do. If he could have improved his defense reading ability and tried to improve his instincts on when to move out of the pocket, he could have been a great QB. Small hands is why he fumbled so much?!? The guy was 6'5" and built like LB! Such a waste. It's entirely his own fault he's sitting at home this year.

Maybe he will go into the agent business now, being he did such a good job with himself. Yeah, right.

Thanks Badger, let him keep flappin his jaw because I bet that so called washed up QB will have better stats this year then what the Queens have taking snaps.

I'm still waiting on him to show us the stats for the 1st 2 years of both QB's

He probably will have better stats then T-Jack, and I bet he will be better stats than Aaron Rogers too! Whats your point? Your quick to pull the trigger on the vikes qb, but you forget about your unproven quarterback leading the cheeseheads.

    • Went out today in the metro areas without any luck. Didn't even see any ramps in the usual spots, and I thought they were earlier than the morels. 
    • Day 4 Morning   I think we were both tired of trying to call birds across private fences, so we decided to try going for the distant gobbles I heard when I shot my bird.   There was actually a decent gravel road that went into this area and allowed us to have an easy walk into where I felt the birds should be.   We got in early to try to get there ahead of any other hunters, but it didn't seem to matter.   Forest roads were abundant, so walking was easy.  We went right to the spot I had a bird gobble from a few days prior, and waited.     It didn't take long for the flock to start making noise, and we only had to move a little ways to get close to them.   As usual the turkeys all came down and went away from us.  They set up shop on a long ridge and seemed content to just stay there.   We had no easy approach so set up our own position on the forest road we were on which was covered in tracks.   Other birds were gobbling in the distance the opposite way, and when one sounded close we chose to go for him.   Nothing came of that little walk other than the loss of a $65 custom call...  On the plus side we found a nice deer skull.     Back to the flock, one gobbler would respond to a crow call, so we knew they were still up on the hill.  We made a painfully slow walk straight at them since they were high enough up they hopefully wouldn't see us.  When we got to the timber they stopped responding, so we guessed they went over the top.  We worked our way up and found where they had been feeding.  Just shy of the top we set up to call just in case they were over the lip of the hill.     We received an immediate response to some lite hen yelps and clucks.  A hen with the gobbler was not at all pleased that we were there.  We got into a bit of a yelling match with her.  She was coming closer, dragging the gobbler with her.  When I heard drumming I motioned for my uncle to get the gun up since he was still calling.  In a few moments I saw a tail fan cresting the hill.  He angled left, looked around, went behind a tree.  I heard him go into strut and drum...   BANG!           
    • Day 3 Afternoon   We went for a short walk into the area I thought I heard the birds gobble in the distance when I shot my bird.  We couldn't find any birds and were nearly done with our walk when I glassed across a cow pasture and saw birds up in some trees!   I quickly checked the map and found that they were dangerously close to public land.   We made a dash for the car.   The walk in to this spot was pretty short and very close to houses and the farm that had the cows.   We ended up close to the fence and I felt the turkeys we saw should be just below us.   Some whitetail deer spooked and then turkeys started filing past along the fence.  I counted four or five hens, but no gobbler.  We stayed a bit and crow called thinking maybe a flock got busted up.  In the end we just backed out without spooking the hens off.

    • I agree.   I have said in the past, i learn to be a better hunter when they aren't easy.  Turkeys seem to become an obsession if you allow yourself to let them get in your blood! Love the chase.
    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
