Hopefully he wont fumble it away when the big game is on the line. He has always had good stats he just cant win the big game. Adam

Daunte may be able to throw up five TDs in a game but he if he doesn't win a Super Bowl he's just another QB.

So Culpepper, Manning, McNair, McNabb & Hasselback are just average QB's? bud, it's not easy winning a super bowl and it takes more than just having a great QB.... heck Plunkett,Brad Johnson & Trent Dilfer won a super bowl. Besides I always hear the saying "Defense wins championships" right?
It makes for good conversation anyways.

I would take tom brady over daunte any day he does not put up the huge stats that daunte does but he does not make half the mistakes. Unfortnately our defense is not that good so we have to have daunte put up huge numbers. yes defense does win champions again look at new england. Adam

The more media coverage Culpepper gets the bigger his head gets. The bigger his head gets the worse he plays. He could be one of the best if he could handle the hype.

Muskybuck, How do you figure?? Do you just make things up as you go? Duante doesn't have a big head.. and handling the hype... c'mon man.. 5 more TD's this week. If your going to make a statement try not to sound like an uneducated packer fan. State facts... use an example..... help us understand where your coming from.

Apparently some folks will not like him even if he breaks all the records, makes all the right decisions and gets us to the superbowl.

With the 31st ranked defense obviously the only reason we wouldn't win it was that a Daunte led offense wasn't able to score 50+ points on a much better defensive team.

Yep, Seem to make sense to me. crazy.gif

Defnintely it's the QB on this team that needs to be replaced. We'd better start shopping for ones that's better right now......I wait....There isn't anyone who's better. tongue.gif

Now the pace is 5,684 yds and 58 TD's. I think those of you who do not like him should look back to better days with, george, cunningham (1yr almost as good as this one has started), Moon, Kramer, Wilson, Johnson the list of mediocracy goes on.

By far Culpeper is in a leage of his own.

I think Culpepper and Farve are a lot alike. Neither one of them can think on their own and when things start going bad they do stupid things. I think Culpepper could very well be a MVP someday but just like Farve had Holmgren, Culpepper needs someone to tell him what to do and hold his hand, maybe both hands. As you see nobody has been holding Farve's hand the last few years and see what he has done. Its going to be along time before you see either one of these two QB's in the super bowl. Believe me, if the Vkies make it there by chance, I will be rooting for them just as loud as you. Culpepper still has too much Jive for me though. Thats just what I think boys.

Just to clear something up, Farve is not doing so good because he is old and plays for a pretty lousy team.

Daunte just passed every other QB who has ever played the game for the best first 5 games of a season.

Dauntes biggest flaw is that he does not play on defense.

Muskybuck, Too much Jive??? You need to get your roll on!

I guess Mr Herman would call it "celebrating" but if I remember right I think Mr. Culpepper has gotten two (at least) unsportsman like conduct penalties for it so far. I do not imagine Mr. Tice was too impressed with that either. Roll on.

Musky,

At least get your facts straight. There was one unsportman like penalty called one Culpepper. The reason it was called was that Kelly Campbell came off the side line to join him in his get a roll on routine. All celebrations involving more than one player will be flagged. Especially when that player comes off the sideline onto the field to do it. Even thouogh Culpepper's number was also mentioned that penalty was on Campbell. If fact Tice was mentioned that Campbell would likely be fined by the league and that he(Campbell not Culpepper) was in Tice's doghouse. Culpepper has done very little to hurt his team. If fact he's carried this team to point.

I sure hope you're not living on vikings seasons past and guarding yourself against disappointment. If you are I couldn't blame you. It's tough having your heart ripped out season after season. But if you're judging Culpepper based on his choice of celebration your really digging.

Darn it Borch, you stole my thunder! I read muskywhatevers post and was getting set to correct him but you beat me to the punch... nice work!

Musky, how can you even think about criticizing the front runner for league MVP? I just have to think your a packer fan or have some sort of alterior motives.

Sometimes the best is not good enough for some. Heck people even bashed Montana!

C pep has a really good chance of being one of the best to ever play the game at his position. Barring injury, he's on pace to break every single season record there is. How can you bash that?

Like others have said, it's not just the Randy and Daunte show anymore. He hits everyone for big plays now, a sure sign of a QB who is maturing. Daunte is young, he's got maybe 10 more years in him, maybe more. He's going to rack up some mega numbers in the years to come.

This team and organization will win a championship or two before it's all said and done and then you'll start to see the comparisons drawn between him and other great QB's. If they dont, they will be speaking of Daunte in the same breath as Archie Manning, Fran Tarkington, and Dan Fouts, some of the greatest to never win it all.

He's pretty darn good alright. Lets see if he can get three MVP's in a row or even not in a row. Then I might agree with him being one of the two or three best.

Muskybuck, you need help! You could take the fun out of Disneyworld! But I'm sure you've heard that before.

I was listening to a vikings game one time on the radio. After Jeff George made a pass completion the announcers (duckies & bunnies) quickly stated..."and that's what makes Jeff George the most prolific passer in the history of the NFL".

So anyway, I guess if you are a quarterback for the queens, then you are automaticaly elevated to top quarterback of all time status.

I've already been lobbying for Hall of Fame induction for Shawn Salsbury and Spurgin Win.

I just can't believe the clowns that continue to bash Culpepper. What does a guy have to do to get SOME, just a little, respect? All of you goofy Pack fans should give it up on your "I'll respect him when he wins MVP" or "I'll respect him when he wins a Super Bowl." Talk about pathetic! This guy has been absolutely incredible. Don't anyone go and think that Gus would have this team where they are today!

All the Daunte bashers must be racists, that's the only reason they could have such a dislike for him. He's been near perfect this year and there is no way anyone can bash him.

If you bash Daunte, you do NOT know football.

To all the other's, who can stop us this year? I know there are some issues on D, but who can stop our offense? No one.

The great thing is that things will only improve.

The Vikings are in the super bowl this year.

BF I know you are a Cheesehead so I will have to tell you again we are talking about this year and what Daunte is doing. Best qb of all time maybe in 10 yrs.

Jeff George was a QB in a series of band aid on broken arm qbs we had for several years and I do not think he was ever considered very good probably slightly above average at best. Spurgeon (AKA Nevergonna) Win was awesome but he was no Majikowski.

By the way no QB ever in the history of the game has had the #'s Daunte has put up through 5 games this year. So that would be a pretty good argument for the best season ever by a QB so far. But time will tell.

Johnny Unitas never had a 5td game, Culpeper has 3 this year.

MJR,

I've never discounted the year Daunte is having. Statisically speaking, it's probably the best ever so far.

I'm just not ready to place him as one of the all time greats yet. Get back to me in 5-10 years and I'll re-evaluate my postion.

Interesting discussion.

Daunte is definitely an above average, up and coming, probably going to be great QB. But, without sounding too negative, this hype was here last year at the same time the Vikes were 6-0. I think some people on here have memory problems. While Daunte is on track to break numerous records, a lot can happen over the next 10 games. I firmly believe that Culpepper is one of the most athletically talented quarterbacks in the league, but it's his confidence that hinders him. If Culpepper gets hurried, he gets his happy feet and stands in the pocket and fumbles. I love the Vikes but I saw Philly take it to them. So far they were the only ones able to stop the offense, unfortunately, had we played better defense against them, we would have won. It will only be a matter of time before someone learns how to slow the offense. Another real problem is that the defense has gotten worse since then. As for Brett Favre, he is a "great" and a lock for the Hall of Fame. As much as I hate the Pack, I liked watching Favre play, even if he needed oxygen like a little girl. However, a good quarterback knows when to quit. I could see sticking around on a team with a legit shot, but no way are these guys goin anywhere.

Daunte's lack of respect for posession of the football drives me absolutely crazy! He's learned not to throw interceptions most of the time, but his fumbles are enough to bald you. In the same token the guy's an absolute stud & we won't get far without him. He could be a Hall of Fame QB, but way, way, to soon to tell that, we'll know in 5 years...

Man, you guys really have a hard time accepting a guys opinion if it doesn't completely agree with yours don't you. Hey, we will take him in packerland in a heart beat. Course he wouldn't start at QB for a couple years, probably tight end or full back. Now just relax.

      Public Administration in any sphere is a complicated process. In public service, there is a high level of responsibility. Every decision may affect large groups of people. There are many challenging points in Public Administration in public service. For example, public administration servants might face a lack of clarity or conflict regarding goals. Public Administration is difficult when there are numerous parties involved. Public Administration essay in public service should also be as objective as possible. There are voting sessions in various committees that help reach the objectiveness. However, if a suggestion gets 50% of votes among street-level bureaucrats, how should this be interpreted? Is a minor preponderance of votes enough to accept a proposal? The sphere implies a focus on societal needs. Sometimes the needs of the target population differ from the common societal ones. In such cases, public administration specialists need to find a balance between those interests. Bureaucrats at street level need to take into consideration many factors. In some cases, it might be challenging to figure out what to do. It is especially true if the decision regards a long-term perspective. Any public service organization has an established pattern for effective decision-making. Such models might involve many formalities. As a result, the process might be extremely time-consuming. https://proessays.net/essays/category/public-administration Related Resources: https://renkulab.io/gitlab/-/snippets/2871 https://www.ridesharetalks.com/?qa=356716/economics-essay-example https://gitlab.syntra-limburg.be/-/snippets/1240 https://forum.making-stories.com/d/296-government-essay-examples

      The essay for international exams such as SAT, GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and IELTS does not require literary talent, but rather a mastery of the technology of its writing.   Almost any international test for admission to a foreign university contains a section devoted to writing an essay. Is homework market legit? There is a general approach to essay writing for standardized tests, which includes five main steps.   DETERMINING THE TYPE OF ESSAY First, you need to determine what type of essay you are required to write. Standardized tests more often ask you to write a "problem essay," when you need to present an opinion on a given problem, and an "argumentative essay," when you need to analyze the arguments presented against or in defense of a particular point of view.   DETERMINING THE LENGTH OF AN ESSAY The length of the text affects the complexity of the essay, the number of paragraphs. A basic three-paragraph essay consists of 300-500 words. It is referred to as a "short" essay in standardized tests. A "long" essay is a minimum of 500-800 words and consists of five paragraphs.   Each paragraph should contain at least three sentences. It is important to understand that it is not the length of the typed text that is assessed, but the structure and content of the essay.   FORMULATION OF THE MAIN IDEA, THESIS AND ARGUMENTS The main idea is what the essay is about. The thesis is what the author thinks about the main idea of the essay. Arguments are logical statements in support of the author's thesis. Each of these elements should consist of at least one sentence.   If you put these elements in order, you will get an introduction. You can use the wording from the text of the assignment as the main idea.   If the text of the assignment is formulated as a question, in most cases, the thesis should be formulated as an answer to the question posed.   STATEMENT OF THE MAIN BODY OF THE ESSAY In an essay of up to three thousand words, one paragraph each is allocated for the introduction and conclusion. The rest of the essay consists of the main body. For example, in an essay of five paragraphs, the main part should consist of three paragraphs, i.e. one paragraph for each argument.   In a three-paragraph essay, only one paragraph remains to present all three arguments, which makes it even more difficult to write. After a brief outline of the main body, one introductory sentence should be written for each paragraph.     The introductory sentences tell the reader what the paragraph is about. This is followed by arguments that justify the essence of the introductory sentence and examples (a quote or a life case). The introductory sentence, argument, and example together make up one paragraph in the main body.   Since the arguments have already been presented in the introduction, there is no need to use semantic transitions in the main body - all that remains is to set them out in the order in which they are presented in the introduction.   CONCLUSION The conclusion is usually the most difficult part of the essay. The conclusion should include a paraphrase of the thesis in light of what was said in the main body, i.e., an explanation of how the arguments support the thesis put forward, and a final sentence that draws a line under the main idea of the essay.   The clearer and more definite the thesis statement is, the easier it is to write the conclusion. Difficulties in writing the conclusion means that most likely the thesis statement is too unclear. In this case, you can try to rewrite the introduction and then go back to the conclusion.   GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS The main recommendation for writing essays for standardized tests is to quickly sketch out an initial version of the essay. If you run out of time, at least you will have a finished, albeit imperfect, product.   In any case, a finished essay is always graded higher than an unfinished one. If you have some time left, however, you can easily improve the essay with small changes.   Resources: How to write an essay What are essays Essay structure, writing style. What is an essay?

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.
