The Culpepper Conundrum

Just 6-7 weeks ago, we didn’t know how the hiring of Cam Cameron would affect QB Daunte Culpepper. We didn’t know if Culpepper would be a Cameron guy.

I think a strong case can be now made that Culpepper isn’t a Cameron guy. Either that or the team does not believe he will be healthy enough to play in 2007 because they wouldn’t be kicking around the idea of David Carr (who has since signed with Carolina) and courting Trent Green, who played for Cameron some years ago in Washington.  

Culpepper has not seen things on the field clearly for two years. He’s been severely lacking in confidence, and has been late with many of his throws.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
