    If your life depends on his accuracy you will die! He looks really bad. I cannot believe how inaccurate his passes are. He had very happy feet in the pocket. The dolphins will not win the division with this qb. He is lucky he didnt have more picks tonight.

    Am I imagining this or did some Dolphin fool post a thread comparing Culpepper to Tom Brady? This guy is a washed up, over-hyped dog.

    Whatever "it" is, Culpepper doesn't have it. The guy is a bum, I'm sorry.

    At one time I though that Culpep/Moss was a good 50/50 combo. I was so wrong. It was 25/85 Moss. If not more.

    I don't think all of this criticism is fair. Culpepper before he got hurt had some of the greatest seasons any quarterback has ever had. Moss or no Moss, it takes talent to throw 39 touchdowns. He's big, strong, and MOST of the time he's been an accurate passer.

    What I saw tonight was a completely different player. His mechanics were terrible. On the first interception he was throwing off the back foot; same with the throw into the end zone that Taylor should have picked off. And he couldn't run at all. Imagine Michael Vick having to adjust to not being able to run; this is a tough adjustment for this guy.

    He looked bad tonight, but you have to chalk some of that up to injury and confidence. The pre-injury Daunte Culpepper was a hell of a player. It's a little early to write him off.

    Actually, i think you are off on a few things. Dante's decline didn't start with this injury. It started about the end of his 2004 season. Yes he had 39 tds that year, but he should have been the same qb at the beginning of the 05 season. He wasn't even close. Why? Moss, Moss, Moss. It wasn't that he lost 500 yards passing, his percentages flushed, his decision were bad, and he couldn't think through a game.

    When I saw him 2nite, the brain wasn't there. Physically, he looked great. Thin (255) and little to no limp. His play 2nite was not an injury rust. something is wrong.

    Well more to the point.

    This guy looks washed up. Looks like my statistical analysis was right on about Culpepper declining into mediocrity.

    Culpepper IS dangerous... to the Dolphins playoff hopes. And to the state of modern quarterbacking.

    lets not forget one thing
    his whole career (well not his rookie year, but he didnt throw a pass his rookie year) he had one offensive coordinator-scott linehan, who was actually in miami last year, too bad for miami that he went to the rams this year

    a new off coordinator and no moss were his downfall
    i was VERY unimpressed with culpepper tonight
    and i see him prob havin a bad year

    BUT, i do see him bouncing back if he and the team are patient with him prob next year, not to the qb he was a couple years ago, but better than he was last year

    Looked like the same guy in tonight's game that we all saw last year. Inaccurate, staring down his #1 WR, throwing balls up for grabs, etc.

    He was awful on every level imaginable.

    You guys are ridiculous. Good god, 1 game and you are putting out his fire already. He really didn't do that bad. He had a couple of under throws and forced two passes late in the game when he could illafford to take sacks. He will bounce back.

    My God... he certainly didn't look "great" physically. Not one good run, and did you see the outs he was throwing? He was just floating them out there, couldn't plant with his front foot at all. Does anyone here remember the healthy Culpepper? The guy had a cannon arm. Threw a good deep ball and a GREAT out. Culpepper tonight was just floating them out there -- he really should have had two of those sideline patterns picked. It was almost like he couldn't reach the sideline without lofting the ball. Definitely not the same guy.

    actually he looked to be in great shape and didnt limp. what is the last time you saw him that thin? after a surgery like that i expected him to be chubby, but he was fit. i wasnt talking about his mechanics or accuracy issues. he has worked hard to get back onto the field. you cant criticize that.

    You know, in the first 50 minutes of the game, Daunte was pretty good. The Steelers made a great play on defense to get one pick and then he forced one pass when the Fins needed a play. I don't see how you generate these crazy conclusions from 10 minutes of football.

    Pep was good in the first 50 min is true as he had no preassure in the pocket or

    mentally. When crunch time came Pep didn't follow.

    Sorry, just an honest observation of the game.

    First read with protection Pep is good, after that it's 50-50, maybe.

    I think you guys are being thick headed about culpepper. Im a die hard patriots fan and i bleed blue and red but Culpepper is a good qb. He isn't 100% no matter what anybody tells you. His knee probably wont be back to where he wants it til half way through the season.

    I live in Chicago and i saw alot of his vikings games and Im not going to disrespect Culpepper and say he sucks when I know he's a good qb.

    He just isn't anywhere near Tom Brady. You guys can flame me now if you like but these are just my opinions.

    *edit* Plus i really was impressed when he moved around in the pocket to avoid pressure and hit that big pass to Booker in the 3rd quarter. Thats the Culpepper i expect in the future. *edit*

    I wouldn't be shocked with that but Culpepper has made big strides in his recovery. I dont think it will take a full two years but maybe a year an a half through this entire 06 season.

    C'mon, let's be fair guys, Daunte Culpepper is not as terrible as he looked tonight. He faced a great Steelers defense on their home turf, and it's his first full game playing with a new team with high expectations. He still has what I believe to be a better arsenal of weapons on offense at his disposal than he did in Minnesota a year ago. He will have better days and the Dolphins will be better for it.

    With that said...

    Part of what made him such a deadly QB to face every week was that he could gun it to Randy Moss at any time, and if that weren't an option, he was a major threat running the ball. A dual threat with an arm to get his man down field. He doesn't have that same mobility this year, and while Chambers is a tremendous vertical threat, he's not in the same class as Randy Moss (as many Dolphins fans would like you to believe). Moss is a unique talent and has a 5-inch height advantage on Chambers. That, and Culpepper has a tendency to be careless with the football (124 turnovers in 81 career regular-season games).

    Culpepper is a freak...he needs direction, but if he has THE guy he can always depend on for positive yardage
    , he can be one of the greatest power QB 'sin league history


    I'm die hard Grogan...that's my mindset.I'm proud of it...and I'll back down from no man...but I gotta teell you guys...I think Saban has made a fundamental offensive set mistake. I can't stand Mc Michael...big mouth, hyper critical...but I can't see hoW YOU CAN GAMEPLAN STOPPING mC miKE MAKING SEVEN TO TEN YARD GAINS THAT MOVE THE CHAIN.WHAT??? Where was he tonight? Look I hate the phiuns with a 40 year passion..Mc Mike is easily ahatable Phin...but I ain't no dope...Mc Mike is a 100 times tougher and easily a bigmouth thta can back it up...What the hell happened? THey got beat by Batch? and Mc Mike was a total non facto...jezus thta's a real bad coaching game plam


    I have to admit..it looks like if we get home field, we GO BOWL AGAIM

    Sorry, as far as he goes, it is not 1 game. This was the same type of performance he gave last year.

    And you are kidding yourself if you think he played well for 50 minutes. He was missing open guys, he was forcing the ball to Chambers, and he seemed to not have enough zip to throw the out patterns consistently. The Steelers had him picked several times but dropped the ball including 1 in the end zone that was a decision/throw that would embarass Aaron Brooks.

    His mechanics looked all messed up. During crunch time, he wasn't stepping into his throws and was putting too much air under the ball. Not sure if this is injury related or just the way he throws it...but from my vantage point...he was throwing off his back foot and muscling the ball forward.

    I'm sorry to disagree with you on this one but, Culpepper has never been a great QB. He's had some very impressive years statistically but has NEVER produced in a big game. Last year the Vikes were picked to be a playoff (some thought SB) team. It was also his first year without Moss and he was absolutely terrible. He was so bad the six games leading up to his (BEFORE) injury. People forget about that stretch, they just make excuses like he's coming off and injury.

    Bottom line is he is horrible when the game was on the line, I'm not surprised!

    Good luck Fin's, you still have a great chance of making the SB (LMAO)!
