Lions sign Daunte Culpepper to a two year deal

I guess when your desperate you'll try anything. This will be the end for DC for sure, bad move on his part to sign with this club IMO. But then again I guess no other team was beating his door down.

ESPN - Daunte Culpepper, Detroit Lions agree to two-year deal to put him at the helm

Re: Lions sign Daunte Culpepper to a two year deal

the DC story unfortunately happens in the NFL; you go from being a top qb, on the cover of madden to a journeyman "washed up" has been in a new york minute . . . . What was DC's achillies heal? his inaccuracy on short throws, did he have an injury that prevented him from throwing that great long ball or did moss n carter make him look that good?

seems like a nice, down to earth guy; never heard him shooting his mouth (like p rivers) so im happy he did get one big pay day.

just one of those "who would have thought this would happen 5 years ago" stories . . .or more like 7 years ago.

go skins!!

Re: Lions sign Daunte Culpepper to a two year deal

IF DC slimmed down a bit and the knee is truly rehabilitated maybe he can make some things happen, but I wouldn't even bother playing him this season unless Orlovsky goes down. Drew Stanton isn't ready yet to take the helm, and DC might be able to get a starting job back if he gets the chance. Detroit is a mess, so anything they can do at this point is a positive. The Lions need to build an offensiive line and a good strong back that can handle the load. Kevin Smith isnt the answer, just like Kevin Jones wasn't, but a lot of it comes down to the offensive line in Detroit. It is sort of like us with our weak pass rush all these seasons.

It's amazing how much one injury changes everything, after Miami and Oakland, was he anywhere else?

Re: Lions sign Daunte Culpepper to a two year deal

A big problem with DC is that he is his own agent and he overvalues his worth.
I think this is probably a one and down deal even though it is technically a 2 year. The new Lions GM is gonna have to overhaul the whole team Why would anyone taking that job want Culpepper to try to build around?

Re: Lions sign Daunte Culpepper to a two year deal

this signing is a desperation signing to show their fans that they are willing to brin in a (useless washed up) star. They need to realize that they have a god-awful team, and should start, instead, working to fix that long term.

Re: Lions sign Daunte Culpepper to a two year deal

This move makes very little sense, but then again it's the Lions we're talking about.

Why? He's better than anyone they currently have. He needs to get his weight down and get a full off season under his belt. I'm sure Det. is going to bring in some more QB's this off season. If anything he can be a good backup.

Because they have a couple of young QB prospects and they don't even know what they have in those guys yet. This is a team that needs to rebuild, bringing in a washed up QB doesn't really help accomplish anything. It's a band-aid move for a team that needs a full body cast.

Re: Lions sign Daunte Culpepper to a two year deal

Orlovsky has quietly done very well since taking over for Kitna. I don't think Culpepper can get onto the field this year, and there's a chance that he doesn't even make the roster under a new regime.

Maybe they should give Trent Dilfer a call.

They used a 2nd round pick on Drew Stanton last year. I'm surprised they haven't even given him a look. They've got nothing to lose. Might as well see what the kid has got.

He won't play backup.
