Use the disrespect.
if Green Bay and Cleveland are two of the three worst teams then who is the 3rd??
Oakland?
San Francisco?
Detroit?
Miami?
Houston?
Tennesee?

Mike,

Oakland without a doubt.

Local media here in Atlanta keep harping on the fact the Shells O Coordinator was running a bed and breakfast in Idaho this time last year.

They are terrible.

Well IMO the Falcons are in the same situation as us. They beat two teams that are NOT great teams. Just like we are underated I think the Bucks and Carolina were overated. I hope Bush has a break out game. I would love to see Vick put on his ass a few times. Two people I get sick of anouncers talking about Vick and Farve. When we played them all they did was talk about Farve. It will be the same Monday night unless we give them something to talk about. We will beat the Falcons on Monday. Anyone notice the lack of blitzing in the first two games? maybe some surprises in store for

Per Don Banks of SI: Drew Brees was the prize among the available starting quarterbacks this offseason. Daunte Culpepper was not. You can't say I'm second-guessing you, Miami Dolphins, because I told you the same thing in March.
Thank you Mr. Banks. It's good that someone in the media sees us headed in the right direction for a change.

Since Peter King has stood up for New Orleans, I'll go ahead and quote him here. He's still sticking up for Daunte, but since he gives such a great two-fer, you'll see why I included it here.

PLEASE DON'T COMPARE CULPEPPER TO BROOKS. From Kevin Decker of East Lansing, Mich.: "Is it just me or are there amazing parallels between Daunte Culpepper and Aaron Brooks? Brooks took charge in New Orleans and was successful for a few seasons but ultimately became known for his tendency to make bonehead plays. The Dolphins took Culpepper with the understanding that they were signing the Daunte of 2004, not 2005.''

Kevin, Aaron Brooks never, ever had the success Culpepper had in 2003 and '04. Not even close. Let's give Culpepper till midseason before condemning him to mediocrity. He's a good leader, and once his knee gets a little stronger he'll be able to move around better and avoid the kind of hits he took last Sunday against Buffalo. I think that'll happen, but I'm not sure. I just know it's unfair to lump him in with the NFL's 38th-best quarterback.
I guess this really punctuates the end of the Brooks debates.

Daunte's knee healing will not help his decission making skills, the problem he had in 05. King is like most people who are enamored with Culpepper, willing to give him too much the benifit of the doubt. I know he tore all three ligaments, but he had more time to heal than both Palmer and Brees and is still using it as an excuse? Or are just the sports writers that love him doing this?
