Culpepper: "Well, the thing is I'll be prepared no matter what my role is. If that's to start the game and be ready to be play, I'll be ready."
Q: Lane Kiffin said you knew where Miami was on the schedule? How badly do you want to beat the Dolphins?
Culpepper: "I think football wise, we just want to get another win. But me personally, I was there and it will be a little different in that fact. But as far as just going out and playing football, I just want to go out there and get a win."
Q: How much easier is it to play when you get first-team reps, unlike last week?
Culpepper: It's definitely easier when you're getting more reps; when you're preparing, it's definitely easier. But the thing is when you get out there, you've still got to do it when you get in the game."
Q: There has been a suggestion that you've had problems learning the offense; is that true?
Culpepper: "I guess it's different for every guy. Me, personally I've been in a lot of different offenses. Like I said before, I think me being able to not have to go out and play early like that and get bits and pieces, that helped me out. I've done a lot of studying and a lot of film watching, being able to look at everything and not be put into it from the jump and I think that's helped me."
Q: Is there any personal desire to beat the Fns?
Culpepper: "The thing is I'm a Florida guy, I'm from Florida. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to play healthy in front of the people down there in Miami. But other than that, I feel like now I get a chance to show them who I am healthy."
Q: Did you decline to the media in the first three weeks because you were not playing?
Culpepper: "I've always been the type of guy where I don't have a whole lot to say. And I still don't have a whole lot to say right now. It's all about getting ready to play. And I feel like since I touched the field that, yeah, it's obvious I need to address you guys a little bit."
Q: Are you ticked that Miami waited so long to release you?
Culpepper: "To be honest about it, everything, all my feelings and thoughts about everything that happened in the past when I was down in Miami, is well documented. You've got to do some homework if you want to know my thoughts and feelings. I know y'all get the AP. It's on the wire. I know y'all read it. So if you want to know all that, do a little homework. But as far as us doing what we've got to do to win this game, I'm willing to tell you about that."
Q: Are you fueled by the experience in Miami after Cam Cameron chose Trent Green over you?
Culpepper: Absolutely. Absolutely. Because, obviously you get a chance to play against a team that you played for. That's the bottom line. But football wise, like I said, it's all about getting the victory."
