Default Daunte's ego

In case anyone doesn't know, I absolutely detest that despicable Yahoo sports blogger-moron, otherwise known as MJD, but this article made me laugh.

It's kinda like dragtruk saying he likes the Patriots*, but I'll post it anyway.

Daunte Culpepper still has lofty career goals
By MJD
When Steelers backup Charlie Batch's collarbone went "snap" in the Steelers first preseason game, the team immediately brought in Byron Leftwich and Daunte Culpepper to audition for the spot on the depth chart behind Ben Roethlisberger.

Both men were said to be impressive in their workouts, but it was Leftwich who got the contract. Why? John Clayton says it's because Culpepper's holding out for a starting gig:


The reason the Steelers picked Leftwich over Culpepper is because Leftwich felt more comfortable with the role the Steelers were offering. Ben Roethlisberger is the starter and Batch is expected to be the backup when he gets healthy again. Culpepper was hoping for a chance to compete for a starting job.

You know who that reminds me of? Clark Griswold's cousin Eddie. There was nothing between the ground and his brain but a piece of government plastic, and every time Catherine turned the microwave on, he'd urinate on himself and forget who he was for a half an hour.

And he wasn't employed because, as his wife explained, he was "holding out for a management position."

I don't know, Cousin Daunte. Call me crazy, but maybe the fact that you're still a free agent on August 11th should be a hint that no one's going to bring you in as a starter. That's an educated guess.

Now, maybe some team should. No doubt, there are a lot of quarterbacks out there who have NFL jobs that are worse than you. The Dolphins alone have at least two.

But for the sake of your career, it might be time to suck it up, realize that you're not going to get a starting gig in '08, and jump at the next roster spot available. Because if you're unsatisfied with the job market now, wait until '09 and see how it works out for you when you've got the same résumé you do now, but you've also been out of the game for a year.

Does Daunte have a dog named "Snot" too?

This is exactly what I was thinking when I heard why we didn't take Daunte. I guess its good to have high aims, but he's gotta look at this realistically.

Don't look for him to go to Cleveland, we already have Dorsey for 3rd string.

IF Culpepper was smart he would take a 2nd string job and do his best Tommy Maddox impression. When it's your turn come in, do your job, and if you do it well then you'll earn that starter spot and eventually help a team get a "BIG BEN" type QB.

I mean think about it Daunte...you get a few years of being a starter and then you get to help a team to a pathetic record only to get the best QB in the draft after two other teams pass him by for the media hyped ones....

WAIT A MINUTE, what am I thinking there will never be a second coming of BIG BEN!!!

Sorry Daunte, your screwed!

Daunte needs to get this be a starter thing out of his head. His perfomance before the knee injury without Moss wasn't good, then he didn't do anything with the Dolphins or the Raiders. Nobody wants him as a starter right now, and he needs to just get over himself.

Otherwise, he could always sign with the UFL when they start play in 2009.

actually daunte had his best year when moss went down and missed half the season. pep put burleson on the map and turned him into a high priced free agent.

That performance of Dorsey's against the Jets may have been the worst I've ever seen a QB play at any level. Simply awful...

Well, if he wants to be a starter, why doesn't he see if he can catch on with a less successful team that doesn't have an established quarterback, like the Dolphins or the Raiders?

Oh. Wait.

Yeah, good luck there, chief.
