Default Cpep out for the season.....maybe more.

Torn ACL, MCL, and PCL, total reconstruction is brutal. Think he'll be ready for training camp?

I doubt he would have done much to salvage Minnesota's train wreck of a season had he been healthy anyway.

Mike Tice should be on his way out of Minny this year....maybe they can get some sembelence of order restored for last year - what they have achieved with the talent at their disposal this year is borderline criminal.

this sucks for him, despite his teams woes he has been a star in the league for a while. hopefully he returns to form sometime next year. big ben was about an inch or 2 away from suffering the same injury.

culpepper was always a scrambling qb. as was donnovan, vick, kordell, young etc. nice thing with ben is he always seems too look for the pass 1st (sometimes to a fault). he seems aware of the people around him when he scrambles. hopefully he keeps his head on a swivel and protects those knees.

just saw the replay again and he shouldve slid. he's been in the league long enough to know the extra yard or 2 isnt worth a year off his career. sure the decision is hard to make in the line of fire but rule of thumb is to slide.

they traded the wrong player. culpepper better hope the number 7 pick develops into a beast so he can throw the ball and they better draft lendale white or reggie bush cause they gonna need a good running game for next year

I feel sorry for him. I really think this will take away from his total game, he may never be the same runner again

he will be like terrell davis running the ball now. these scrambling qb's have got to become accuswtomed to throwing from the pocet at some point anyways. like r. cunningham i think culpepper can have success way down the road.

Have to admit, I have a soft spot for Culpepper. I was living in Orlando while he played for UCF and saw him play a few college games. He's a good kid and I hope he recovers and the Vikes put a team around him worthy of his talents.
