Apparently the more you bring in, the better they get....???

That's my only explanation for it. Maybe Tim Couch could revive his career there as well..... Akili Smith and Mike McMahon have looked good at times in the CFL.... maybe Dan Marino is tired of doing the weight-loss commercials.....

Honestly, Tampa, figure out what you want in a QB and get it. Otherwise you end up with a bunch of QBs who don't know if they are first-string or 8th-string....

Jeff Garcia knows he's the starter. Grads, for now, knows he's the backup. Simms is now 3rd string. Luke McCown knows he's fighting for a roster spot. Plummer knows he's not getting off his couch. Eugene and Taylor know they shouldn't get too comfortable in NFL jerseys. What's the problem?

According to PFT Detroit and Atlanta might be interested in Culpepper as well. I'm hoping he goes to Detroit, to give competition to Kitna. It would be interesting seeing C-Pep playing in a favorable system with a lot of weapons to work with. That's the only way he might ever become successful again.


That is what I had thought......

Culpepper would be amazing in a Mike Martz offense throwing to Roy Williams, Mike Furrey, and Calvin Johnson.

not necessarily, as you're only looking at raw skills, a great year in 2004, and stats.

Culpepper has great difficulty with complex, multiple receiver offenses, and making extensive reads.

in Minny, he was very one dimensional and did not advance to the next level. in Miami, he certainly did not either.

Gotta be looking at ATL for a possible destination with the Vick controversy in mind. Goodell's disciplinarian approach so far doesn't bode well for Mike's chances of playing much this season if his situation gets any worse. Don't know what Falcons fans would feel about it; he was benched for Joey Harrington last year, so a possible repeat could be on the cards, though a healthy Culpepper should be an improvement. No doubt easily drawn comparisons between Vick and Culpepper (both mobile, big-armed QB's who struggle with accuracy issues) will fuel the rumours...

I'm just hoping that having 2 former teams lose faith in him that he will have a fire lit under his [inappropriate/removed] and earn his roster spot.

i appreciate your enthusiasm and optimism.

it's not his butt that Pep needs a fire lit under, but his head. he never took his game in Minny to the championship level, even though we patiently waited for his intellect to catch up to his physical skills.

when you think about the top qb's we all admire, they all had one thing in common: they gained intellect over their careers and with it, learned how to be savvy. not only in reading defenses, but also in conducting themselves as professionals.

Pep ain't there.

The Bucs arent ging to get him. but Im starting to think Gruden believes you start 3 quarterbacks instead of 1 Cullpeper would steo in as our 8th string qb.
