Raiders make move on Curry

The Raiders activated outside linebacker Aaron Curry to the 53-man roster Tuesday, doing so before the deadline reached from them to make a decision on how to proceed.
The options were: activate Curry, waive him on place him on season-ending injured reserve. Curry was at the tail end of a 21-day evaluation period in his return from the physically unable to perform list.
The Raiders waived linebacker Vic So’oto to make room for Curry on the roster. Curry is eligible to play against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Curry missed some of the offseason workouts, all of training camp and the first eight games, while recovering from sore knees. At one point, he went to Southern California for treatments from a specialist.
It’s likely that the Raiders will use Curry on special teams and as a backup at all three linebacker positions, at least in the short term as he gets back into football shape.
The Raiders will have to make another roster move if they activate cornerback Ron Bartell in time for the Baltimore Ravens game Sunday.
Bartell is back at practice, but he doesn’t count on the 53-man roster because he is in his reacclimation period after being placed on injured reserve earlier this season. He suffered a shoulder injury in the regular-season opener and missed the past seven games.

It is only about 8 million people so who gives a fk? Heck, as long as we leave the Mus1ims alone they will leave us alone!

    Jezuz people, are you serious? The progressive liberals are willing to protect some rat’s nest in the way of a strip mall, but you want to just step aside and watch the middle east burn? Watch as Israel is wiped out? Watch as Israel nukes Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iran and Iraq back to the stone ages on its way down?

    I thought you people were supposed to care about others….apparently you just care about how much tax money you can get in your entitlements instead of being spent on our military.

    What planet do you people live on?

    You really think that you can just close your eyes to the world’s problems and your life will just go on like it always did? You think that if we allow the world to go to hell in a hand basket, we can just cruise along and not be affected by it? Do you people realize we import the majority of the products we use? You think that other countries will just sit by and watch as the world’s largest energy reserve is destroyed along? Watch a second holocaust take place? Watch as nuclear devastation reigns down on Europe and Asia? You think India and China want to see nukes being fired off right next to them?

    Because you people just want to step aside and pretend it is the 1800s and the oceans will protect us? And so you can have more stuff?

    Wow, I just don’t know what to say.

    Great question.
    - a Muslim empire can’t end the domination now, but it can in the future.
    - people in Spain and the far east were speaking Arabic for a reason. The west feared the Muslim empire for centuries, and they couldn’t wait to eliminate that power with the help of some ignorant nomads.

    This is just too simplistic of a view of the world. Hey, if you and your liberal friends are willing adjust to a world where the middle east is on fire, and the rest of the world’s oil is being sold for $500 a barrel, and the products you love to enjoy are either off the shelves, or gone altogether, and food prices are astronomical because farmers and ranches can’t harvest as much, or the cost of running a combine is too high, and you can get over the radiation clouds floating around the world from Israel retaliating….then heck yes, by all means, lets just walk away and wash our hands of that region.

    Thank god Ob@ma is to the right of some of the people in here. I know he will not do what they want him to do. He knows what affect that would have on all of our lives. I have no fear that what is being requested in here is something that any sane president would do, democrat or not.

    But the fact that people who claim to be liberals actually believe this….that is a very troubling thought.

    With half the 2012 season finished, Sporting News’ network of NFL correspondents asked 103 players from 27 teams everything you want to know about this year in our annual midseason players poll.

    As always in our midseason poll, players were not allowed to name their teammates or head coach for any of their answers.
    Which is the worst organization in the NFL?

    Cleveland Browns 20

    Jacksonville Jaguars 19

    Oakland Raiders 19

    Buffalo Bills 9

    Cincinnati Bengals 7

    Kansas City Chiefs 5

    New York Jets 5

    Carolina Panthers 3

    Dallas Cowboys 2
    The Browns were voted the worst organization in SN’s midseason players poll, but only by a single vote over the Jaguars and Raiders. (AP Photo)

    Miami Dolphins 2

    St. Louis Rams 2

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2

    Four teams received one vote

    “Cleveland Browns They don’t give anybody a chance. When I was growing up, they were getting rid of quarterbacks every two years. Coaches, too. You can’t do that. Most of the time when I was growing up, after the Browns came back in 1999, they were a sorry team. Under old management, they never gave those guys a chance. They let the fans dictate too much what was going on. I don’t know how it is now since I became a Jaguar (in 2011), but when I followed them, one bad game and they’d want to bench the quarterback. Cleveland is my city and my heart. It has the most loyal fans and a very rich history. I hope they can get back to winning.” — Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts, a native of Cleveland

    “Oakland Raiders. Everybody says it’s a black hole. They say you go out there and your career might be over.” — AFC defensive player

    “Jacksonville Jaguars. They’ve got the tarp over the seats, don’t they? It’s just not working down there. They need to bring in (Tim) Tebow or something to get people excited, but the NFL hasn’t worked there.” — AFC defensive player

    First, we didn’t bomb Kuwait, unless you count what we had to do to kick Saddam out of their country as bombing them…..so then I guess you think we bombed the US in WWII because we dropped bombs on the Japs sitting on the Aleutian Islands…..or that we bombed France because we were kicking the Germans out of their country. Please man.

    Second, you really don’t understand the difference between losing 8 million J3ws and untold millions of Mus1ims and Arabs in an all out war in the middle east is different than what has happened over the past ten years?

    Maybe you don’t understand the history of that region. Maybe Raider O can make you understand that these people tend NOT TO GET ALONG and us just leaving them alone will not result in them suddenly holding hands and singing David Hasselhoff songs.
