29 posts in this topic

Read on ESPN that Culpepper is reconsidering retirement and would wan't come back if offer more then 1 year is out there.

Just wondering your thoughts on maybe Vikings getting him next year or any other team?

I am sure his agent could get him a great deal. That agent of his has managed to get some top notch deals for him the last few years. One of the best agents around I am sure.

Oh, wait, he's his own agent. I forgot. That has really worked well in the past for him.

He won't play for the veteran minimum and that's all anyone will offer.

Chilly will not take him back. (It would be nice) Let him flounder with his QB situation, this year and get canned after the season.

cullpepper could do a better job for the vikes than chilly. id say hes got a better chance of being employed by the vikes next year than chilly, but culpepper sure can talk himself into a hole sometimes.

I'd like to see him get a shot somewhere. He has alot of talent and has put up good numbers. His knee injury plus a train wreck of a team during Tice's last years really hurt him.

He always put up great numbers while surrounded by a great supporting cast, i.e. a great offensive line, great WRs. He has gone elsewhere and not had those things- Miami and Oakland and not done so well. If he wants to come back, he better have those things again, or he will be on his backside all game.

There are 2 teams I can't understand don't try him out at least- the Cowboys (until Romo comes back) and the Chiefs (don't think I need to explain that one).

Just read on MSN- Culpepper will be in Kansas City on Monday for a Physical. Culpepper wants a Multi Year deal and the Chiefs are willing to talk.

And

Kevin and Pat Williams are getting hit with a 2 game suspension for testing positive for water pills.

3 New Orleans Saints are also getting suspended for the same thing along with a few other players in the NFL.

Vikes' Pat and Kevin Williams fail drug test

Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the list of players who tested positive for a banned diuretic include both of the Minnesota Vikings' starting defensive tackles, Pat and Kevin Williams.

If the suspensions ultimately are upheld, the Vikings would be without the services of both players for four games. And that would decimate the Vikings' run defense.

Glazer also reports that Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jackson is one of the names on the list.

The release of these names further highlights concerns that league sources are leaking confidential information regarding appeals that have not been finalized. Attorney David Cornwell, who reportedly will be representing some of the affected players, has recently made an aggressive call for measures aimed at ensuring that reporters don't disclose this confidential information without also disclosing the source.

Only in the NFL . These guys are taking the stuff to keep their weight down. Unfortunatly it also masks some steroids others are using to compete. I don't think either one of the Williams needs to take the roids to be competetive..

Nothing to complain about here B, they just got screwed!

If they were the Packers and some of the best defensive players in the NFL (like the Williams are) and the Pack was on a bye, you'd be complaining as well.

Well, I'm a Vikings fan, so I'm not sure why I'd be complaining about the Packers. But thanks for letting me know what I should be thinking.

What QB's has been able to put up great numbers without a good supporting cast? Look at what Peyotn Manning is doing this year, a knee injury plus a banged up O-line and all of a sudden he's an average QB at best. But he's had the luxury of much better WR's and a much better RB then Culpepper had.

Judging a QB by what he was able to do with Miami and Oaklands talent is like judging the performance of a race car if you used maple syrup for fuel.

KC is the only team I can see making sense for him right now. Dallas wouldn't make sense becuase Romo will be back in 2 weeks and they only have one more game before a bye week I believe. He wouldn't be able to get signed and learn the offense that quick just to play one game and then sit on the bench.

Since Culpepper is representing himself I heard he wants a two year guaranteed contract for about $10 million. I think many will be saying adios.

    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
