    Two interesting tidbits at profootballtalk.com - the first referencing speculation that Culpepper might not play at all this year even though Culpepper recently said he would be ready to start the season.

    The other mention's Saban being pissed that Culpeppers assertion that backup QB won't get a chance to play this season hurts his efforts to cheaply sign a starting caliber backup QB who wants a chance to play.

    While my feeling is Florio does indeed have many inside NFL sources, those sources usually have their own agenda with their leaks - in this case I'd put 2 and 2 together and guess that the "out for the year" rumor might have been leaked in an effort to undue the "damage" caused by Culpepper's assertion he'll be ready to play.

    I'd expect the truth to be somewhere in between Culpepper's statement and this rumor - that he won't start the season and might not be at full speed for awhile, but won't be on the shelf for all of 2006.

    Others - including Harrington, Ferotte or even McNair - will probably draw the same conclusion based upon the rumors and statements and will remain interested in a backup job with the Fins. Hence another illustration of how NFL personnel use PFT for their own agendas.

    When will teams learn - I guess probably never - how much trouble some of these players can cause who have amply demonstrated problems in the past. The teams simply ask for trouble when they sign these players - and they get it. It will also be fascinating to see how Parcells and Bledsoe fare with T.O.

    As a sidenote, it has been amusing to see how at least some of the Miami fans have regarded signing Culpepper as their ticket to winning the AFC East. It's probably a tossup if Miami can even finish second - but they probably will considering how much difficulty the Bills and Jets are likely to have.

    Flamed by a 89 post newbie!!! Ouch!!! ;)

    (I assume T-Shirt Dynasty flamed you as well for doing the same thing and starting a new thread on this topic AFTER he did?)

    I guess those other repetetive threads must have been bumped to another page by a dozen separate threads confirming that Seymour was signed.

    You might want to offer some repartes to them as well! :rofl:

    I think everyone here realizes that I'm way too classy to be a flamer.



    Wait.... that didn't come out right.

    Is Arizona big enough for New England Scott AND New England Mike?

    I thought NEM had that moniker trademarked!

    Perhaps its a "mini-me" kindof thing, given the fact that NEM's got about 10,000 posts.

    (insert your own "mini-me joke here)

    NEM apparently has signed a NEW CONTRACT with himself that allows for spin-offs of his name...I wonder where he buries all his millions???

    Well, that's 2 of NEM's secret $$$ sources I know of now.
    His name and those Arizona hot dogs sold at Cardinal Games....NEM-DOGS.
