People have some pretty strong negative feelings (check out the comment section) about the Packers brining in Dante Culpepper for a visit. Look, do I like Culpepper? No. Do I think he’s anywhere near the answer? No. Is his arm-roll celebration beyond annoying? Of course.
But lets all calm down, shall we? The man has started in the NFL and won many games. He has a rocket arm. He…well… is not as bad as Kelly Holcomb. Yet. If the Packers can sign him to a low-risk, low-money contract, why the hell not? And the other thing people forget, and I will keep reminding them, is that Mike McCarthy ran a Top-Ten offense with Aaron freekin’ Brooks as his starting quarterback. Culpepper is twice the QB Brooks was at any point in his career. Let’s give McCarthy a chance to work with the kid and see what he can do. Signing him now does not mean he will be on the roster on opening day.
