Should we call Dante Culpepper?

If released do we make a run at him? I think he is questionable to ever be a great player again, but given the choice between him, Frye and Anderson ever being great, you would have to pick Culpepper.

Culpepper was good with a great receiver to throw to. If we were to sign him, would it then be ok to draft Calvin Johnson?

I am so confused, someone please help.

Nice to know I'm not the only one thinking we could do worse than signing Culpepper. With an average OL and a stud receiver like CJ he just might succeed, if he can ever get healthy.

You were supposed to be talking me out of this, not into it!

If the Browns are looking at drafting a QB, any QB at any round, than it would not make any sense. Personally, I think they are going to take Quinn at 3.

I think the Browns could do worse next year (than Culpepper on one leg), for instance, starting Frye.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

That's the only positive thing Edwards did.

What's that?

Nevermind.

Not only is he injured...he is too dumb to play QB.

The only play he ran in Minnesota was roll out and throw it up to Moss.

Also, heard how his pipes broke two years in a row at house in MIN after he turned off the heat and headed to Florida for the office season. Twice!

Come on, Pup, months of preaching about the O-line and you come around on Joe Thomas...now you throw this crap up there ?
Isn't it time something good happens in this town ?

Which is why they would have to draft Johnson.

I am still a Thomas pimp, but there are more holes than the o-line that need plugged. QB is a very big one. I would not be on the Thomas bandwagon as hard if I thought Russell/Quinn were legit.

I'm with Pup here. Plain and simple, I'm a quarterback guy. I think you're fooling yourself if you think you can win consistently without a good one. I'm just not convinced those two guys are worth that pick. I'm also with Pup, in the sense that if they go ahead and draft one of those two, they better be right. I would assume they know quite a bit more than me, so have at it. If I knew right now one of those guys would be a star, than that would be my pick. I'm not sold.

Ew. Culpepper circa 2007 is nothing like the Culpepper circa 2004. His knees may be shot, and that kills his mobility. And I just don't see Culpepper thriving as a pocket passer.

In addition, the knee injuries have limited his ability to push off his back foot during throws, causing his balls to float on him (hmmm... that sounds weird).

I wonder. Would Culpepper throwing to Calvin Johnson, Braylan Edwards and Kellen Winslow be the best possible scenario? Frye or Anderson throwing behind an OL including Thomas? Jamal Lewis and AP sharing the backfield to make the fake handoff more effective for Charlie and DA? I think these are the questions Phil Savage should be (and probably is) asking himself right now.
