From Sun Sentinel.....Im loving this attitude...McMike's gonna have a big game
DAVIE -- If it were up to Dolphins tight end Randy McMichael he would tape over the No. 1 on his 81 jersey in honor of sidelined quarterback Daunte Culpepper when he lines up against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
McMichael knows how much work Culpepper has put in to be back on the field exactly a year [Wednesday] after undergoing major knee surgery, particularly against first-year Vikings coach Brad Childress who criticized him before dealing him to the Dolphins last March for a second-round draft choice.
"You really wish he could be out there, and it's kind of sad that he's not," McMichael said. "This is a special game for him, and I know that he would've wanted to be in this football game so we're going to go out there and play hard for him.
"We're going to carry No. 8 with us on our back when we're mashing on them."
