Curry not activated to 53-man roster

By Steve Corkran
Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 at 3:40 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Raiders linebacker Aaron Curry Tweeted that he wasn’t activated today, which means that he won’t play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Raiders have three more days to decide how to proceed.
Curry returned from the physically unable to perform list Oct. 17. That started a 21-day clock in which the Raiders can activate Curry at any point or wait until the evaluation period ends before placing him on season-ending injured reserve or waiving him outright.
Given the Raiders are paying Curry this season, one way or the other, it would seem to make the most sense to activate him and use him on special teams and as a backup, at least.
However, it’s possible that the Raiders are content with the players they have on their 53-man roster right now and don’t want to cut a player to make room for Curry.
The Raiders have to make a move before Wednesday, so time is running out.

    GG please don’t get me wrong on Terrelle…I love the kid
    and admire his guts for sticking it out through all the adversity he’s faced….CP is your stereotypical NFL
    passer and Leinart ain’t none too shabby either…..
    P.Manning could well be the best ever…..If he can humble it out I believe the game will be very good to him
    …..just bide his time if he gets given the chance.
    Kubiak played in 2 games I think in about 15 years.
    Coaching now and it sure as hell pays better than damn near anything else.

    #252…nah it’s cool, i don’t get your wrong. I agree with you anyway as that’s the truth and reason behind why #3′s do or don’t climb depth charts. I’m just hoping he does cos I like his skill-set as a potential franchise QB. I would guess Palmer is here for another 2-3 years anyway, RM/DA will ride him as he is our best realistic chance at playoffs/SB from year 1 of their regime for the next few years. One reason why I like Palmer too is he is always helping Pryor, and very humble going out of his way to teach him all the tricks he knows. A lot of QBs like Favre, Manning, Brady never do this, (don’t teach the apprentice in case he becomes better than you).

    What the fu$k is the world coming too….Gotta go to
    Palmerston North to talk to a bloke from Southampton
    and Oakland to find a Kiwi from Tawa Flat.

    We can at least be thankful that Pryor actually has a QB coach to work with this year. Also, I’m sure Palmer’s stuck working on weekly game plans, but Leinart is well versed in the offense and is probably helping him out. Would love to see the kid in a few situational packages, but can understand why the coaching staff has been straightforward so far.

  • Kiwi_Blade

    Ha ha.
    Are there many Kiwi’s in Oakland?
    Palmerston North is full of POM’s and Yanks.

    Yep good point. Last year was a debacle for Pryor having no QB coach. A real set back to his development and mental fortitude as he himself acknowledged. Gotta be happy overall with Reggie tho due to bringing the organization up to more modern standards, ensuring there’s all those chains of commands and coaches and processes in place now that allow players like Pryor a chance to succeed in developing.

    Last call!

    Interesting article, about Patriots no-huddle. How creative/inventive OC’s can make a big difference to developing players and having an efficient offense. That whole WCO verbiage of play names itself is incredibly hard to master, and must’ve caused many QBs to not reach their physical potential. Not to mention the blandness/predictability of play-calling can detriment an offense’s statistical abilities.

    I post this in showing how things could be helped in Oakland with Pryor or general offensive schematics in future.

    From SFGate…

    The Raiders, with Carson Palmer having success with the no-huddle offense, are tied for first in lowest average time of possession in scoring drives, at 3:05. Oakland is tied with Cleveland.

    Oakland has scored in the last 2 minutes of first half in all seven games. They have 33 points in final 2 minutes and 35 in the first 28.

    One of the big reasons for the early success of rookie quarterbacks Brandon Weeden (Cleveland), Ryan Tannehill (Miami) and Andrew Luck (Indianapolis) is their use of the no-huddle. They all used it in college. “When we get to the line quicker, we are able to assess the defense and get ourselves into a good play,” Tannehill said.

    The Dolphins are third in lowest average time of possession in scoring drives at 3:13.

    Funny how Manning won’t teach when he’ll never meet anyone in the same league as himself.

    When I lived there Blade we had no electric power and gravity fed water from the roof of our farmhouse through
    the wood burning ‘wetback’ stove.40 miles NE of the city
    Mileage was the distance between pubs.The local at Paihatua had space for 20 blokes and 200 or so sheep dogs.No Dui possible….the fu#king horse quit drinking at 3.00pm and new the way home backwards.I was 5 years old and not allowed to drink whiskey or gin.

  • Twinkle

    When the Snake ran the no huddle (every down) he had 3 tightends……..film room anyone?
    WCO with CP is right up there with Donkey John running the Wing T.Our beloved leader is probably heating half
    of Oaktown spinning in his grave so fast.He’d have given
    the city of SF to get his hands on CP and thrown in the
    bridges and a kiss on the cheek of Carmen Policy to boot.

    Great article. I bet the mad scientist has plenty of schemes to slow or stop the flashcard offense from his days coaching against the mastermind.

    Sounds like it puts an emphasis on “smart” players but smart is not what you think it is. Your smarts come from repetition. And the willingness to hustle your butt off at practice.

    High IQ people may be challenged

  • Plunketthead

    My idea of the no huddle was just that. Same plays just call them at the line.

    This should be called the flashcard offense. I think its the same thing Boise St has had great success with unless I am missing something.

  • Plunketthead

    Twinkle whats up

    Have I been causing more trouble then the trolls by feeding them? I hate when other people do that.
    Or have I said something to cause offense?

    I admit to being on here too much the past couple weeks and causing trouble as well.

    Hopefully I can go back to work soon at the kwik e mart

    NFL voided contract extension Sean Payton agreed to with Saints, making him an NFL free agent after this season.

    Can Raider nation collect some money, on top of what the organization can afford, and offer him a contract to be our next O.C?

    Did you read the nohuddle article?
    What was or is your definition of the nohuddle.
    I always thought it meant calling the plays at the line with no special one word lingo

    By the way,
    I never did congratulate the Giants and your picks for them. good calls

  • RaidingTexas

    Morning, Nation! Game day! And a sincere “fk you” to the local Fox affiliate for picking up a different late game. Azzholes.

    lol Miami
    OC would be fantastic. DA may have to age a little and put some playoff wins under his belt before guys like Peyton can or will work for him.

    I wonder how much scheming and scamming goes on in situations like that. Probaly a hellalot.

    I didn’t read the article, but my feeling on our no-huddle is different than the two minute offense.

    The two minute offense is looking to predominately throw the ball, and depending on time and situation, maybe attack the sidelines or look for big chunks of yards in the middle of the field.

    The no-huddle that Knapp is perfecting with Palmer, gives us 2-4 plays to work off our formation, and depending on the D looks, adjust. It helps keep their D-lineman tired, and why we have been pretty effective. Also, our no-huddle seems to switch to just as many runs as passes.

    Knapp is killing them with it.

    To what? etch a sketch? You have the far right hoping he was lying about being a sensible moderate. Then you have the middle right hoping he was lying about being ultra conservative. Too funny Plunket.

    Morning gents. I am optimistically cautious about today’s game. 4-4 would be huge with all its momentum. Off to the gym. Have a good day guys.
