So long


I greet the news of the trade of Daunte Culpepper to the Miami Dolphins with mixed emotions. On the one hand, he is a man with incredible physical gifts and I was convinced after the 2004 season that he was going to be one of the top 3 quarterbacks in the NFL for a long time. The potential is still there. On the other hand, he has demonstrated over the past year that he is an immature flake as he didn't just burn bridges here, but detonated them with several thermonuclear blasts. The point of no return was passed last week, after which I guess that it was a good thing to get the divorce over with ASAP.

But who is going to play quarterback for the Vikes in 2006? I sure hope that they are working on a better answer than Brad Johnson.
