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.

If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]
