Oh, Daunte Culpepper, how quickly you fell from the top. After a stellar 4 years at UCF, he was drafted 11th pick overall by the Minnesota Vikings. He didn’t play during his rookie year, but ended up starting his sophomore year and made it count, passing for over 3,900 yards with 33 TDs and only 16 INTs with many of those yards and TDs going to Randy Moss. He did so well he made the Madden video game cover for the 2002 season. However, he hit a bit of a rough patch the next 2 seasons before returning to prime form the following 2 seasons. However, after being named All Pro in 2004, after a season of 39 TDs and 11 INTs, Culpepper was never the same. He was traded to the Miami Dolphins in 2006, but never lived up to expectations, frequently being booed and even some people asking him to be benched in favor of Joey Harrington. After his 1 season in Miami, Oakland gave him a shot, hoping his downfield passing would jump-start his career again. It didn’t, and he ended up getting cut midseason. Before the 2008 season, Culpepper retired from football only to come back and serve as the backup for the Detroit Lions. He was given a chance to start in 2 seasons, but still was terrible and has the dubious honor of saying he was part of the team in 2008 that went winless the entire season. Where is he now you may ask? Well, Culpepper is playing in the UFL for the Sacramento Mountain Lions which has served in some ways as a minor league system for the NFL. His stats from this most recent season? 1,732 yards passing, 9 TDs, 11 INTs, with a QB rating of 73. Despite a promising start to his career, Culpepper fell off hard and was never the same, earning him our spot as December’s Has Been Of The Month.
