Dont you love how he says that nobody gave him a chance to compete?

Looks to me like the Dolphins and Raiders both gave him chances...along with other teams who worked him out.

It kills me with guys like him....everything is always someone elses fault.

Heres a news flash for ya Dante, without Moss...you suck.

This is the NFL...not UCF, you cant run over people in this league.

Please go cry some place else now.

Let's get him now while his value is low. He needs to get an agent.

Dante Culpepper found success in two fashions. He threw a beautiful deep ball to, arguably, the best deep ball reciever in the league(Randy Moss). Also, whenever he was pressured behind that great offensive line in Minnesota, Culpepper could scramble for yardage.

Once he left Minnesota, he no longer had Randy Moss who not only has great hands, but has always known how to maneuver his body against the defender to put himself in the best position to make the reception.

Once his knee got banged up, he no longer had that great ability to gain such yardage on scrambles.

Culpepper was never terribly accurate anyways. Once more, the man has health issues, which brought suprise to me when I saw so many people on here screaming about signing him. He's not healthy. We have enough health issues.

Culpepper could and would outplay every QB on the Ravens roster which would throw a huge monkey wrench in their plans. In 2004 he threw for over 4700 yards, only 700 went to Moss. We need a QB, He's easily the best thing available.

Amazing what a reciever like Randy Moss can do for the career of a q.b. not that Culpepper had no talent , but he was not the superstar people thought without a great reciever like Moss. But than again you could say that about most q.b.'s! Shame when a q.b.gets an injury early in there career and don't fulfill their potential because of it! Seems like Dante' is a quality guy , wish him good luck in his future !
