OK Dauntephiles, this is your day
1. The Dolphins were correct to let Daunte Culpepper go. The guy today is still not 100 percent healthy and may start Sunday against the Dolphins only because Josh McCown, who is not exactly a stellar QB but beat him out anyway, is hurt.
2. The way the Dolphins executed the Culpepper exit was wrong. Coach Cam Cameron should have told Culpepper the team would do what was best for the team. Period. That way Culpepper wouldn't have been told he would have a chance to compete for a starting job -- which he never did. Cameron also shouldn't have embarrassed Culpepper by announcing, in front of the entire team, that Culpepper would not be playing again for the Dolphins.
3. The Dolphins should never have allowed Culpepper to go on the field that fateful minicamp day back in May only to then tell him he couldn't participate in all the drills. That led to Culpepper's infamous march off the field and the personal press releases from the QB that he handed out in the Miami locker room.
4. Why is it the Dolphins, more than any team seemingly, have players around the league that hate them? In Cleveland Brady Quinn and Braylon Edwards hate the Dolphins. Culpepper wants revenge on the Dolphins. Randy McMichael was so angry at the Dolphins when they let him go, he hung up on ME when I called him about it. He later called me back and did an interview but admitted, anything associated with the Dolphins (including this reporter) left a bad taste in his mouth. David Bowens wanted to play in New York because, of course, that gave him a chance to beat the Dolphins twice a year. Why can't we all get along?
