Randall Cunningham, who refused a big pay cut to return as the Minnesota Vikings' starting quarterback, was released by the team yesterday. The top-rushing quarterback in NFL history, Cunningham was benched just 5 1/2 games into his $28 million contract extension last season. He was replaced by Jeff George, who went 9-3 as a starter and guided the Vikings into the playoffs, losing to St. Louis. George turned down a minimal offer from the Vikings and signed with Washington, leaving Daunte Culpepper, who hardly played as a rookie last year, as Minnesota's starting quarterback.

Week 10 of the NFL season found rarities such as two safeties in a single quarter, an above-.500 record for the Miami Dolphins well into the season, and the return of Daunte Culpepper. But again, we salute the two rookie quarterbacks from the Philadelphia area. Ryan's express. Atlanta Falcons rookie Matt Ryan (Penn Charter) threw two more touchdown passes in a 34-20 win over New Orleans, giving him 11 for the season. He went 16 of 23 for 248 yards as the Falcons (6-3) continued their surprising push for the NFC playoffs.

Give the Eagles this much credit: They know their weaknesses; they ignore sentiment; they will upgrade at any cost. With yesterday's visit by Minnesota Vikings free agent Matt Hatchette, the Eagles continued to acknowledge that their receiving corps was poorly assembled over the past two seasons. If Hatchette signs and the Eagles, as expected, select a receiver in the first round of the draft, the team will have replaced three of its top wideouts and will call into question the role of last year's second-round pick, Todd Pinkston.

WITH BIG RED and No. 5 making an appearance at the Linc tonight, it's only fair to bring up the best decision of the Andy Reid era, drafting Donovan McNabb with the second pick in 1999. Of course, the booing of the choice up in New York has been played up just as much as those damn snowballs we tossed at Santa Claus, but history and stats tell us that Reid and the Eagles made the best pick. McNabb went on to win 98 regular-season games, reached five NFC Championships, a Super Bowl and was selected to six Pro Bowls.

Wagering on the NFL and playing fantasy football share an important characteristic. In both cases, in the midst of the most innocuous game, a field goal or a touchdown of little apparent consequence can be a source of anguish or elation. Yesterday, the betting fate of an excruciatingly ho-hum game was decided by a score that will go largely unnoticed in today's box scores - except by the bettors who made or (more probably) lost money. The lowly Detroit Lions, deservedly 13-point underdogs to Cincinnati, were trailing by 16 when they mounted a drive in the closing minutes with Daunte Culpepper in a mop-up role at quarterback.

There was no need to quibble about dollars, when it came down to common sense: The Minnesota Vikings wanted Daunte Culpepper as badly as he wanted them. The two sides reached an amicable middle ground yesterday, when Culpepper signed a contract extension with a potential value that will make Culpepper the third-highest paid player in NFL history. Culpepper, 26, signed a 10-year, $102 million contract extension that includes a $16 million signing bonus. "We have the potential to be world champions, which is what I want to do," Culpepper said.

The Metrodome always has brought trouble for Brett Favre. Maybe he just needed to play hurt. Ignoring the broken thumb on his throwing hand, Favre passed for 194 yards and three touchdowns and the Green Bay Packers saved their season last night with a 30-27 victory over Minnesota. Next up are the Eagles, who face the Packers next Monday night in Green Bay (9 o'clock, Channel 6). After two straight losses at home, the Vikings (6-2) saw their NFC North lead over the Packers (4-4)

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Tice disclosed that quarterback Daunte Culpepper, who injured his right knee against Carolina yesterday, could miss the rest of the season. "The quarterback doesn't appear to be in good shape," Tice said. "I'm not a doctor, but the initial tests are not good. It doesn't appear that it's going to be anything that we as Vikings will want to hear. " Culpepper ran 18 yards on the final play of the first quarter. Panthers cornerback Chris Gamble came in from the side and tackled Culpepper's leg, and the Minnesota quarterback immediately grabbed his knee.

Quarterback Randall Cunningham will be released if he doesn't accept a significant salary cut, and Minnesota Vikings coach Dennis Green also isn't sure if he'll re-sign last season's starter Jeff George. In an interview published yesterday in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Green also reaffirmed his commitment to Daunte Culpepper, saying he hopes the team's 1999 No. 1 draft pick will become the starter as soon as next season. "We cannot have Randall Cunningham at his salary," Green said of Cunningham's scheduled $4.25 million in total compensation.

It is traditional, right about now, to remark upon all the fine college quarterbacks who crash and burn in the NFL. Matt Barkley, the 98th overall pick of the 2013 draft, seems doubly cursed. He is coming off a disappointing senior year that ended with a shoulder injury, and he is coming from Southern Cal, launching pad for such high-profile crack-ups as Matt Leinart, Todd Marinovich, and Mark Sanchez. One major factor is too often overlooked in these flameouts, though. Everyone talks about the quarterbacks.

It was so cold, and so dark, those early winter days at Valley Forge Military Academy hundreds of miles away from everything he knew. Larry Fitzgerald was a kid in culture shock. His long hair? Gone. His freedom? Gone. His future? On hold, replaced by a present that he didn't know or particularly like, with pre-dawn wake-up calls and stringent schedules and shiny shoes. Fitzgerald just wanted to catch footballs, but there he was in 2001, a spoiled little teenager derailed by sub-par grades, wearing a uniform and trying to earn the simple privilege of using the telephone.

It doesn't take Peyton Manning or Tom Brady to win a fantasy championship. It helps, but this quirky competition is about fielding the right combination of players peaking at the right time. That can include minor NFL players benefiting from good opportunities. The Buccaneers' best fantasy performer is quarterback Jeff Garcia, but running back Earnest Graham has the attractive upcoming schedule that includes three of the weaker rushing defenses in those of the Texans, Falcons and 49ers.

Daunte Culpepper finally has what he asked the Miami Dolphins for weeks ago - a chance to start over with a new team. Miami released the former Pro Bowl quarterback yesterday, wrapping up a contentious split between player and team. The move came the day before a breach-of-contract grievance filed by the NFL Players Association on Culpepper's behalf against the Dolphins was scheduled to be heard, and after Miami unsuccessfully tried for weeks to trade the 30-year-old. Culpepper - who became expendable once the Dolphins made a trade 6 weeks ago with Kansas City for Trent Green - said he got word from his attorneys about the release on Monday night.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Daunte Culpepper slightly bruised his nonthrowing hand in a two-car accident. "I am fine," Culpepper said in an e-mail to the Associated Press yesterday. Culpepper said the vintage Chevrolet car he was driving was rear-ended by another motorist late Wednesday night on a South Florida highway. He said the top of his left hand was bruised, and he got X-rays as a precaution. "The real problem is that the guy damaged my 1975 convertible Caprice Classic," Culpepper said.

The Miami Dolphins told quarterback Daunte Culpepper they will try to trade him, just hours before the trade for Trent Green was finalized. Green's long-awaited trade finally got done yesterday after he passed a physical and was acquired from Kansas City in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2008. Culpepper, who has been in Miami just one season after starring in Minnesota, got the word from general manager Randy Mueller and coach Cam Cameron. Culpepper wasn't happy with that development, saying he is "not interested in being traded.
