What Daunte's current state of availibility?

IMHO a veteran QB to back up Arod should be a priority.

still looks like some decent big boys out there.


:scratch: See Williams on the list and wonder if GB would have any interest in getting him back? After his rather desparing remarks after leaving; probably not. There certainly is a goodly number of big boys GB could bring in for some try-outs.

There was a report somewhere saying that Culpepper was now open to any role where he can contribute and not just look for a starting role.

If that's the case, he would be worth a shot. I am having doubts about Flynn and Brohm im not sure either guy is ready yet.

Since the end of the 2007 season, Culpepper has been unwanted.

He hasn't helped himself. In April, he turned down a $1 million offer from Green Bay, which would have put him in position to lead the Packers if (when) Aaron Rodgers gets hurt.

More recently, he refused a one-year, $730,000 offer from the Steelers, in part because he wanted to compete for the starting job. Against, you know, Ben Roethlisberger. Since then, Culpepper has recognized that it's too late to try to be a starter in 2008, especially in a city with a guy who just signed a $100 million contract.

"I initially hoped to have an opportunity to start," Culpepper recently told USA Today. "I am now looking for any team that will give me an opportunity to contribute wherever I am needed."

Apparently, he's realized that waiting for a starter to break a leg carried with it no guarantees that his phone would ring. Who'd take a chance on a stranger to the offense with a suspect leg of his own and a growing reputation for drama when a backup already is on the roster?

The deeper problem here is that, by representing himself, Culpepper is the guy who has to contact teams and sing his own praises. Agents (the good ones, that is) have the relationships and/or persuasive skills to talk a guy up much better than he could on his own.

Then, once a team is interested, Culpepper is in the awkward position of trying to drive a hard bargain with the very people with whom he'll be working. He also has no one to tell him when he's making a mistake by walking away.

Like when he turned down $1 million from the Packers. Or when he passed on $730,000 with the Steelers.

The other problem is that, by going it alone, Culpepper has given every other agent motivation to privately bad-mouth him. Typically, agents spend their time saying nasty stuff about each other. But when a player thinks he doesn't need an agent, he's a threat to all of them. And you can bet every agent who represents a quarterback looking for a job has been telling scouts and other front-office execs that anyone who takes a chance on a loose cannon like Culpepper risks getting himself fired.

Still, in a league with not enough capable arms to staff the depth charts of 32 teams, a guy like Culpepper should have a job. He's nearly three years from his knee injury, but only four years from a single-season passer rating of 110.9, the fifth-best showing in league history. At age 31, he can still play, and he at least deserves a shot.

But, until he gets an agent, he'll continue to spend his time waiting for the next chance to come.

I found this article! I say they try to get him just in case Rodgers gets hurt GOD FORBID it happens but you never know.

:magnifyglass: Bozz 2006 seems to think that Harrell will come back hale and hearty. I wish I had that kind of confidence in this guy. In my opinion Harrell is definitely a worrisome player. Doubt he'll ever make it through a whole season and when he does play rarely plays up to his hype. I would be much more comfortable if Ted Thompson picks up an additional wide body with a bit of push to harass opposing QBs.

Question - Do we have a 6'4" WR that can run a 4.29 40 and outjump half of the NBA?

Answer - No.

Thus, just say no to Daunte Culpepper. Hate to break it to you all, but he's not that good. Culpepper will not get us very far in the Playoffs, so if Aaron gets hurt, we're better off letting Brohm get some hands on experience. The season is lost anyways.

I disagree on that one. I truly think Daunte can excel on a good team,
neither of which was the case in Miami or Oakland. He finally has had sufficient time to heal. As for Arod looking over his shoulder, too bad, unless of course it is not "all about the team" as he so vehemently states.

Pick up Daunte now, before someone else does.

There's a reason we offered him only $1 million. Ted Thompson did the right thing by insulting him.

I'm just hoping our OL holds up, so this whole thing will be a non-issue in '08.

A Rod wouldn't twitch a moustache hair over Culpepper peering over his shoulder.

Well, I think we need better offensive guards. Our tackles are getting on in years also. We have question marks at center. The QB is unproven, the starting RB has really only a slight bit over a half-season of work, our full-backs aren't anyone of real merit, the DT position is in total flux due to the injuries, I'm not sure our DE's can continue to perform at such a high level, the safeties have been called burnable by most, the cornerbacks are geezin', Poppinga has coverage issues historically, AJ's hurt, Chillar has been underwhelming, but our kicker looks real strong. You know, the usual concerns....

If i said that Harrell would be back at 100% and contribute for the last ten games of the season as if no injury ever happened, excuse me. that's not what i meant to say. What I meant is that because cohesion and "being on the same page" are so important to Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy , i don't think they'll bring anybody in to be a stopgap, because a new player typically can't contribute right away, specifically because they haven't been given time to gel. DT is a position that can contribute relatively fast (i'd say they could start really contributing around 6 weeks), but by the time they start to contribute, Harrell is expected to be back and contributing. OL is probably the slowest position to gel, because you have to work as a single unit with four other dudes. a brand new OL takes forever to gain consistency, and i don't think Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy think that a new OL would be any more consistent than someone who is already on the roster and has spent time working with the rest of the OL unit.

When Harrell's ready to come back, Mike McCarthy needs to take away his Wii.
