Guys, I really don’t want to take Brad Childress’s side in the Culpepper trade fiasco, but Childress had commented multiple times how excited he was to come to MN because they actually had a winning QB on the roster. He referred to us as “one of the best situations” available for a new coach to take over that year because we did. Dante did not reciprocate. He didn’t want to talk to Childress on the phone, refused to rehab, or even so much as check-in, with the team, He showed no interest in learning a new west coast offense, and acted like he hit the jackpot when he was shown the door. Also, by any metric, he flat out sucked in almost every NFL game he played after that. I agree that it’s a shame it went down that way, and I take your point that the QB you have, if he occasionally runs in the top half of the league at his position, is almost always better than an unknown (it’s always blown my mind how many idiot Cowboys fans would try and ship Romo every offseason) but I think we were lucky to get a 2nd round pick for Dante under the circumstances at the time. Although I might well change my mind if I saw who drafted with it…
