Culpepper,,,, another dagger of doom for my beloved franchise. Thanks, Nick Satan for bringing this guy in... (NOT). Dante was done before you gave him the $$$. You were just such a poor evaluator of talent to know.

He is delusional.

The league didn't share his optimism, not because he represented himself, but because he is washed up.

He also thinks he wasn't given a chance to "compete" for a job, yet the Steelers brought him in for a tryount and they also thought he was washed up.

He didn't decide to retire, nobody would give him a job.

Unfortunately he had an inflated sense of self-worth and a moron for an agent. Typical

D. Culpepper never got a fair chance to play a whole season. It wasn't Saban's fault or his fault, it was just the nature of injury. I think he also needed to grow in a good system with Offensive lineman that could block. The dolphins never had a good OL, I don't care if Marino was still back there, you see what happens when an OL is terrible-and after years of aging. I applaud Culpepper for his classy side and for his constant rehabilitation and dedication to try and play for the Phins. I had a herniated disk in the US Navy and it bothered me for all most 6 years, so I know how a serious injury can feel and trying to get it back is all most impossible sometimes. Yes, it's a completely different injury then he had, but it takes quite a bit of time trying to come back from any serious injury like that. I think he could still play for Miami, I think he is better than Beck, maybe even Pennington, but I don't think he was Parcells kind of player. Good for you Dante, have a safe and good life, we appreciate that you atleast tried to help us before going to the Raiders.

Boo hoo... If he could still play, he would be on a team. Quarterback is the toughest job in sports and he's not up for it anymore. No one is going to pay him what he wants so he can carry a clipboard all season.

Go to and read the email written directly from CDUMB himself. It is filled with run on sentences and mispelled words and all kinds of garble. Looks like a 6 year old wrote it in Class.

I read it and now I have a headache. Calling all Cops if you see CDUMB on your highway in FLA. Make sure you light him up.

he is done and should be proud to ahve played at the level he played. He stuck his nose up at back-up roles and now regrets this. He is a warrior without the sword and the Phins rushed him back and it back fired on him. Too bad but its the NFL and there are 32 clubs, x53 per roster to think about. This was just a cry to say look at me, I am mad, sad, and this is not fair..Cry a little tear for me Daunte

The reality is the guy wanted starters money and or wanted to only be a starter. He refused to lower his price. Therefore no takers for a crippled player. He is not what he was. And he better understand even if he lowered his price he is not going to make that in any other walk of life.

Better ignorant and arrogant behavior. The guy should try the real world.

Yeah I saw it on PFT, they have a story on Duh'ta everyday. This guy has a mental problem. Stomp's his foot and plays the victim card, what's next the race card, oh that's right he and PFT has already done that. And he wonders why teams don't want him around. Because he's an asshole. He could have picked up a free check and be a back up, but no he thinks he's better than everyone else. Good luck at the car wash.

"Culpepper implied that teams around the league were blackballing him because he chose to represent himself rather than appoint an agent."
Or could it be that ever since his fall out with the Vikings he's been a problem with his attitude and his ego.
And the fact that he expects everyone to think that it was only his doing in the years where he would just throw the ball up in the air for about 50 yards and just let Randy Moss run out there and fight for it.
You know...
Just like Chad Penington used to do when he had Moss while playing for Marshall.
The truth is this...
Culpepper = selfish.
And the only way some team will take a selfish player is if he had some superstar talent to go with it....

"The NFL has become more about power, money and control than passion, competition and the love of the game"

Just one more example of why representing yourself as an agent is a bad idea. Penny wise/dollar stupid. At least he can say he has total control now, which is what he wanted. Cameron handled the situation horribly, and Culpepper handled it worse. He sabotaged himself, but still has multi millions to break the fall. My heart bleeds.
