*It's easy to forget that Daunte Culpepper had legitimately spectacular seasons at the ages of 23, 26, and 27, and that it seemed like he would be the franchise quarterback for another decade. I still don't understand what happened. In 2007 this same man came back to the Metrodome as an Oakland Raider and threw for 344 yards, and I was in the Metrodome watching, and I felt nothing special. What happened? We need Jay Cutler.

How I long for Jay Cutler
Do we really need to be offered hope? Do we really need people making me believe that the Vikings could acquire a Pro Bowl quarterback that will be 26 next season? Do we really need people making me believe a quarterback that threw for 4,500 yards and 25 TDs last season could be coming to a Viking team that has averaged 2,992.5 yards and 16.25 TDs passing over the past four seasons? Is it possible to hope that the Vikings could solve the quarterback problem they've had since Daunte Culpepper* flamed out? Are we being offered hope just so we can be thwarted once again? As flies to wanton boys, so are Viking fans to the gods.
