So, do you think....

Recommended Posts

That there's a remote possibility that Tice benches CPep in favor of Brad Johnson if Culpepper continues to struggle?

 

I bring this up as a distinct possibility for 3 reasons: First, Tice is, by far, the worst coach in the NFL. He makes Mike Martz look like Einstein. Second, CPep has been horrible. I mean, I've watched the games, and he's just off. The numbers speak for themselves, and it's not the WR's not getting open, it's CPep not seeing them, and part of that is the lack of protection he's been getting as well. Third, in Brad Johnson you have arguably the best backup in the league.

 

I still think CPep could finish up as a top 5 QB, but do you think there's any chance that Tice benches him?

I see your point, but there's no chance at all Tice benches CPep. That would be the final nail in his coffin.

I think they need to get the running game going, granted the fumbles aren't making it easy. Then if Culp still has issues then I'd consider it.

As a Viking Homer, I was watching the game with my friends. I was all about Culpepper in the past and even the first game I thought alright bad game/good defense. Yesterday, I was call for Brad Johnson to start the second half. After the fourth interception I was screaming for Brad Johnson. My buddies and I were talking about it, and what do you suppose it will take for Tice to replace Culpepper. Obviously turnovers isn't the reason. If Culpepper plays like that next week and is not I the bench by the second quarter, I will officially stop watching the Vikings this year.

How can you go from having Moss & Culpepper to having neither?

 

No way Tice sits him, even if not doing so is his downfall.

Good point...the way the Vikes are going...why not shake things up...

Give the back-up a chance....If Burleson is hurt nothing may help that offense.

 

 

Tice looks like the FIRST HC to be on the chopping block...

Would they fire him mid season?!?

 

 

I thought the vikes "D" was supposed to be improved?

they gave up 500+ yards yesterday.... :doah:

I was pretty stoked about getting to see Culpepper "in person" yesterday for the first time. Instead, I saw Akili Smith, who's apparently bulked up and is wearing Culpepper's jersey.

If CPep can't turn it around against the Saints, I can see Tice giving him the hook at some point next week, just to send a message.

 

It's not out of the realm of possibility IMO.

This might have had a little to do with it:

 

Time Of Pos. 21:20 38:40

 

If your offense is that inept, and you're on the field that much, you're going to give up a lot of yards and points.

Brad Johnson is a better QB.

Apparently there's a no-bench clause in the contract. If CPep is benched, the bet is off.

That's an injury clause. Being dressed for a game counts.

Is it just me, or does this guy talk about nothing but the Vikings on this board. You are the closest thing to Ugly Tuna on this board. I know you are a fan, but reading your rants on the Vikings time and time again has gotten tired and boring. It is one thing to be a fan, but you seem to be obsessed and only see things from your homer perspective. Seriously, it is annoying.

Tice needs to find a running game thats the 1st problem he needs to deal with...I think you will see the Vikings trade for Ricky Williams before benching Culpepper...

:D I went 0-6 last week. Good thing I'm giving advice. :D

 

But it seems I have redeemed myself. With some luck 7-0 (doubleheader in one league) this week, without luck 5-2, but that means JJ and Horn have to both suck tonight, which I'm hoping doesn't happen.

I guess I missed your sarcasm from your post. Sarcasm is hard to get across on message boards.
