The NFL Draft fiasco with the #7 pick moved the Vikings close to the Detroit Lions level of management inneptitude in the NFC. However, that fiasco was not able to get the Vikings the top position. Thus, in order to become the dumbest front office in the National Football Conference, the Vikings have signed Duante Culpepper to a 10 year $102 million dollar contract extension www.espn.com . Considering Culpepper was benched at one point last season, and had only one good season 3 years ago, this extension might be one of the worst in the history of the NFL. If the Bungles ever get their act straight, the Vikings could even challenge them for dumbest organization in football, but for now, they can be content in surpassing the Detroit Lions.

I like Culpepper, and he could do much better if Randy Moss had ever decided to play, but this is ridiculous. 10 years? 10 YEARS?!? I don't understand why any team would want to sign a contract that goes for over 5-6 years. The Vikings have just put a lot of money down on Culpepper being a good QB for the next DECADE.

When I saw the blurb on ESPN.com I thought it had to be a typo.

Culpepper is not the problem. Moss is. Get rid of Moss, and the Vikes might actually have a chance.

Clown is right. Moss needs a change of scenery and he needs to play every down.

NFL contracts rarely go the length and full value of the deal. 'Pepper's deal will probably end up being around half of what is announced.

True. The only reason for the team to even make the contract that long is so that they can spread the signing bonus out.
I don't know what a players motiviation is for signing such a long contract (one that obviously won't be followed through in its entirety) is though.

$16 million in guaranteed money though.

Ah, yes...the Minnesota Vikings. The same people that brought the phrase "Herschel Walker trade" into the popular lexicon.

Too bad the Pack will ALWAYS lose the first game to the Vikes...even if they do win the second. :|

I don't really follow the Vikings too closely, but I did watch Culpepper play a few times this past season, and I thought he was God awful. How can a man that threw THAT many interceptions get ANY kind of contract extension? I understand that Randy Moss is a self-centered, unmotivated clown, but Moss didn't make him throw all those picks. I wonder if that lousy bastard O'Leary had anything to do with it. I know he's only the defensive coordinator (right?) but I've always heard that Mike Tice is no more than an O'Leary puppet.

Now if you want to talk about inneptitude, O'Leary and his history with quarterbacks is where it's at!

When the Eagles selected Donovan McNabb, I was booing almost as hard as the fans in the draft room. Not because I wanted Ricky Williams (though I'd still take him in a heartbeat) -- but because I wanted CULPEPPER. Any first-round QB is a crapshoot, and I wanted the guy with the biggest potential upside.

What throttled Culpepper was Robert Smith's retirement, which left the Vikes with a negligible running game. Add in Moss's regression and the untimely death of Korey Stringer opening a hole on the offensive line, and you've got major problems, with a still-very-young QB at the helm trying to figure out what to do next.

TEN YEARS?????? Come on! I'm a Vikings fan, but even I have to admit that Culpepper was frickin' awful this year. It was sad to see someone who used to actually be able to make things happen turn into a pathetic shell of his former self.

I don't even know what the hell is wrong with my team...
