    Dolphins | Team still pondering Culpepper trade
    Sun, 12 Mar 2006 18:28:07 -0800

    John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban is still contemplating a trade with the Minnesota Vikings for QB Daunte Culpepper. The Vikings aren't as adamant about asking for a second-round draft choice that could upgrade to a No. 1, but they want a second-round draft pick. One problem is the Vikings won't let Culpepper have a doctor's visit with the Dolphins, only allowing him to talk on the phone with Miami. In the next 24 hours, the Dolphins quarterback will be either Culpepper or free agent QB Drew Brees (Chargers).

    Looks like the Dolphins are the team to beat in our division for a while. Saban has done a nice job so far. The next few seasons should be interesting. What's deal with Rickie Ganja? Is he gonna be able to play? :rocker:

    Please let them take Culpepper!

    Just to continue their ineptitude at the position.

    Those are my thoughts too. But if the Vikes don't let Culpepper take a medical exam with the Dolphins first, it would be a shock for me if Saban doesn't go after Brees instead.

    If Saban is seriously looking at Culpepper, then I have to think his NFL player evaluation capability is suspect enough that we don't need to worry about Miami.

    people are trying to build Saban into a genius before he has proven it. Mora Jr. went to the NFCCG his first year and missed the playoffs his second year.Plus that miami run was against pretty bad teams and were all pretty much close games. tougher schedule this year as well. instead of the browns and titans they get the chiefs and steelers.

    I guess I would have to be in that group. I think Saban is a damn good coach already...even if he coaches a team that I dislike.

    Culpepper isn't as good as he was hyped up to be a couple years back, but he is still a good QB who is definitely an upgrade over Frerotte/Rosenfels/Lemon. I don't think adding him would hurt them one bit.

    as bad as culpepper looks sometimes
    it would still be an enormous upgrade at the position for them
    although i would kill for brees if i were them and i really hope he goes to the nfc, where he would instantly become the conferences best qb

    Minnesota's GM has over-played his hand on Culpepper and he's being foolish in not letting other teams give Culpepper a physical. I am pretty sure that the league can void any deal in which an injury is not disclosed properly.

    Both Culpepper and Brees are injury concerns and it would be absolutely foolish for Miami to bring one in as their #1 QB without checking them out physically.
