Curry a Raider; Davis odd man out


The Raiders confirmed Thursday afternoon that Aaron Curry had passed his physical and has been added to the roster.

Curry marked the news with a celebratory message on his Twitter account.

Meanwhile, linebacker Bruce Davis, whose blocked punt led to a field goal in the first half of Sunday’s 25-20 win over Houston, said on his Twitter account he’d been notified his services were no longer required.

Davis spoke at length both Sunday and Monday about the pride in producing such a big play following the death of owner Al Davis, given that he is a second generation Raider. Bruce Davis was a Raiders offensive lineman in the 1970s and 80s.

    Wanna find a place that will replave the names off the back though. Turn Sapp into Houston, CWood I may just keep as is, maybe go to Huff.

    Wanted to buy a Nnamdi for like 20 bucks or however much they go for now and make it a Cliff Branch.

    I sold my Warren Sapp jersey for $3 at our garage sale a few weeks ago.


    Sweet, what do you think I can get for my J. George, J. Porter, R. Moss and two Jamarcus Jerseys?
    Any Nnamdi fans left?
    Anyone want to buy my Raider jersey?

  • Yep….SeahawkFan is eating sour grapes. BTW How’s the Cable guy doing? The Silver and Black will have the last laugh.

    SeahawkFart, take a lude dude. You got robbed. By us. It happens. Doesn’t mean you’ve gotta shrink into a bumbling, rambling idiot.

    Having a heart attack over the production of a 2nd year player is pretty lame and nearsighted. Some guys don’t blossom until their 4th or 5th year. Or when they get in the right system.

    Either way, we risked NOTHING to get a 25 year old who was the best player in the country a few years ago.

    So you know, having an emotional meltdown on this blog usually means you get eaten alive. It’ll scar you for life, little fella.

    Just thank us for our time and get in line for Sonics tickets. Oh, sorry – I forgot.


    I used to get about 80 copies of SI each week.

    Never paid a dime for them either.

    Seems a buddy of mine decided he would be creative and filled out a bunch of those subscription cards that used to be included in the magazine and dumped them in the mailbox. Within a few weeks I was being bombarded with issues of SI and bills from them.

    Now what was I going to do with the subscription cards in my SI issues that I never ordered ?

    My buddy, his mom, pop, aunt and grandmother all got subscriptions to SI. Even his dog got a few copies each week.

    Of course this ‘subscription war’ expanded and eventually included every major magazine. It really got out of hand when Columbia records entered the fray.

    Don’t feel sorry or guilty about never paying for all of that stuff, but I kind of regret giving the mailman a hernia.

  • silly seacawk fan……..one teams trash is another teams treasure.

    have you not seen the list of players who go or get sent to the RAIDERS and resurrect themselves.

    Ahh, all the classic signs of a Blog Meltdown:

    – chasing your own tail
    – backpeddling
    – nervous forced laughter

    Beeecham… we, in Seattle, are laughing are arses off at the idiots in Oakland who ’stole’ AC from us. Trust me… whatever was offered? We would have taken less. Are you aware of how much this guy is making? And for what some here are saying will be your BACKUP LB???


  • Master Beeecham

    Don’t need to – he’s done a fine job of flushing himself

    Yeah.. sure he was! On what planet??

    Morons. I guess The Raiders have sucked for so long, you guys will accept another teams trash and actually be excited about it!


    Seattle thanks you!

    Absolutely STR! You are on point. lol:)

  • Later DMAC. Peace to ya

  • Plunder

    The Seahawks run a tampa 2 under Caroll. The weakside and strongside LBs are responsible for a lot of ground in that scheme. Some serious zone assignments are there for outside backers in the tampa 2.

    Can’t say for sure, but it could be that Curry was out there thinking too much. Thinking about his zone assignment instead of just playing. Combine that with the pressure of his draft status and who knows.

    In Oakland I don’t think he’ll be asked to play much zone. If they put him at the strongside and ask him to man up on a TE, he may excell at it due to his size/speed/strength combo. I mean, read this guys scouting reports out of Wake Forest. Almost all of them mention his natural instincts and covering skills.

    He essentially gets to start over in a scheme that just might be more suited to his abilities. He wont be expected to be a beast out there from day 1. Could be just the thing he needs. This guy could be one hell of a steal. If not, it’s okay… he came pretty cheap. If it doesn’t pan out, it’s not a crippling move.

  • The Seahawks suck.

  • Hagar the Horrible

    After we win the coin toss on Sunday (we rarely do), we’ll methodically move down the field for an opening scoring drive with McFadden consistently running the ball. As you all know the running game will open up the “play fake run” to creat easy passing lanes for DHB, Ford, Schilens, Moore and Boss.

    We just have too many offensive weapons. The DC for the Browns must be having nightmares trying to game plan against our offensive. Even T. Jones will get some playing time as he’ll have a large family presence at the game and Hue will give him a few touches.

    Defensively, Seymour will have the boys emotionally ready to kick some butt. Sunday is going to be a fun game and an even better half-time tribute to Mr. Davis.

    Everyone knew that Reid would eff things up in Philly.

  • I agree Plunder. Great post. Also, the Raiders would not signed Curry if they didn’t have use for him. I look forward to the young Lad playing in our system.

  • Mistake to call Philly a “Dream Team” before the season started and before any seasonal wins….not very wise. I think crazy Vince Young started calling their team the “Dream Team”. lol

  • hwnrdr

    Yup, it was VY saying all of that…I bet he wishes he didn’t say a word now…
