Curry waived by Raiders

By Steve Corkran
Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 at 11:40 am in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders confirmed that they waived veteran outside linebacker Aaron Curry, soon after Curry sent out several Tweets saying that he was gone.
Curry Tweeted three times within a 6-minute span that he was gone. The Raiders ultimately confirmed the news.
He missed some of the offseason workouts, all of training camp and the first eight games this season as a result of sore knees. He recovered well enough to play in Oakland’s past two games.
In those games, he played 15 defensive snaps against the Baltimore Ravens but only three against the New Orleans Saints.
The Raiders traded for Curry last season. The move cost the Raiders a seventh-round draft pick in 2012 and a fifth-rounder next season.
Curry’s departure frees up a spot on the 53-man roster. Former agent Joel Corry said Curry will count $1.5 million in so-called dead money on next year’s salary cap.
Curry was the fourth pick of the 2009 NFL draft by the Seattle Seahawks. He failed to materialize into the game-changing linebacker that many envisioned.

    I warned everyone in here they were jumping to conclusions way way way too soon. But no everyone thought I was in mourning. I was just being practical, because I know how hard that job is. Reggie was way too cocky, he hadn’t done a damn thing yet except pick some players……that’s not being a GM that’s being a SCOUT!

    couldve hired a jc coach and he would do better than da…even bed n breakfast kept it closer…
    ———————————————–
    And this to me is where you should be comparing DA. To Art Shell. Because as bad as that Bed & Breakfast 7 step drop offense was, that defense never gave up, all season. And Rob Ryan does get some credit there as well. Id be willing to bet that in a head to head match up, that team would beat DA’s team. Because Im confident that Aaron Brooks or even Andrew Walter would have been able to find holes in this garbage defense. However, I do not think that a Knapp led offense would be able to move on the Raiders Defense from that year. So yes, even the worst season in our recent memories, the one a lot of people like to look to as the “dark age” of Raiders history, even that team would stand a chance at beating, and dominating the team that we have today. And it would come down to one thing, and one thing only, coaching. Because this roster, 1 through 53, is still better than the team Art Shell had on the field that season.

    I was on board with Reggie until the fireing of Hue and the announcment of Knapp and the zone blocking scheme.I knew we were fked,and have been on a Reggie bash ever since.

    @Ghosttoothepost

    Gregg Knapp? Not saying he was just a bad hire, but shouldn’t they have realized that the players weren’t picking up the ZBS scheme in camp? Now they are slowly putting in more power-like schemes. Isn’t this @$$ backwards, shouldn’t they have eased in the ZBS?
    ===========================================
    Wasn’t referring to Knapp. Said no way Reggie could undo in such a short time what Al did for years.

    Like Mark said “both are under contract, and aren’t going anywhere”.
    Which I disagree with.
    Contracts are made to be broken. Just the way it is.

  • MiamiRaider78

    Again, the only way to justify firing DA and the rest of his staff is, if in return a coach named either Gruden, Cowher, or Billick is hired. It will instantly reenergize the fan base, FA’s will want to sign here and it will give us fans a better outlook on the future of this franchise.

    Games are over before halftime now because teams aren’t finding it easy to run on us , so all they do is call any pass play and their QB is sitting back there with all the time to throw, secondary breaks down long TD, we get the ball back ,one of stupid wr’s run the wrong route ,or drop a first down ,we punt and then the D gets the ball ,they call a few run plays and then the pass play comes on an obvious passing down and we try to blitz with stupid to try to help the front four, still the QB has all the time , throws for a long bomb and game over

    This dude is a fking idiot!Open your eyes cheif.

    “on board until the firing of Hue”???
    How could Reggie not fire Hue?
    Hue went out of his way to make it clear he was in charge, and should be in charge, and should have full input on what goes on.
    Hue’s head got so big he started getting stretch marks on his skull.
    every person here, at the time, knew Hue had cooked his own goose.

    I am not saying DA is the answer, but I will laugh my azz off in here as i watch you guys freak out after you get your way and Reggie fires DA and is forced to hire Kevin Gilbride as the next HC in two months.

    What, you mean Bill Cowher turned THIS 1 of 32 jobs down? I am shocked!
    ———-

    this is the point, your fan driven coaches power rankings mean nothing to davis jr and big mack

    They may want nothing to do with a bill cower, and they would be another in a group of teams that have not gone after him., and other like him.

    Im sure big mack already has a list of guys he is ready to call or already has lined up.

    This will in no way will be run according to a fan popularity poll.

    You will never know just which coaches are sought after by the raiders…end of story

    Well the Ron Wolfe endorsement really made the Kool-Aid taste sweet. Sounds crazy, but I even thought that the way Reggie talked (Kinda slow) that he must be a great football mind, b/c you know he wasn’t fooling anybody with his elocution skills.

  • mcfadden20.

    yes knapp was a pathetic hire , but seriously who really believes we would have scored over 30 a game with Hue with basically the same roster 40% of McFadden ,no # 1 receiver ,unless hue was going to get his O to score 45 every game without McFadden and average wide receivers to compensate for weak D , that’s the only way we were going to beat good teams in this league

  • MarcusAllen

    Blame it all on Al, blame on the short time frame.
    Lets absolve DA and staff of all of it. Sounds like a plan.
    They don’t need to show anything they just need time.

    Ya, ya, we know. Al is gone. You hate anyone coming in and proving Al blew it. Obviously Reggie had little to do with what he was given.

    Pretty ignorant of you to state a GM can immediately undo years of abuse.

    What is there to laugh about do you dispute the notion that we have no pass rush and you can’t give good Qb’s all day in the pocket ? Do you think we got a pass rusher that’s underachieving ?

  • Priesttj12

    A list of bums…………you are the most uninformed Raider fan I’ve ever heard of. Reggie could’ve picked anyone he wanted. He had his own list, my point is he could’ve expanded it as he wished it was his fault he limited that list if indeed it was limited. The owner gave him full control you are the only fan I know who DOESN’T know that.

  • Ghosttoothepost

    IMO, DA’s lack of intensity, his laid back demeanor, and his blase’ nature isn’t what we need.

    You can be that way once you’ve established yourself. But looking at him on the sidelines, at PC’s, etc shows me a man who looks overwhelemed with it all, and not sure what to do.

  • mcthompso

    DA is not doing himself any favors having an unprepared team that just does not show up….

    but there are two types of players that can dash any competitiveness that a coach wants to instill: The aging player that is paid, unmotivated, and a couple steps slower than they were in their prime.

    The other: the young late round draft pick to undrafted players that might have some talent, but no smarts, or some smarts, but no talent.

    The Raiders roster is littered with both. Whether that is a condemnation of McKenzie has yet to be seen-as he inherited a mess.

    This team needed and needs a new direction. Whether this direction is the right one or not has yet to be seen. 10 games is not a fair amount to give the new regime when so much has changed.

    Not saying we should blindly trust DA and Reggie-but they need to be given a fair shot. I’m having a worse feeling about it all than I did in August, but ya can’t just scrap guys b/c they didn’t work miracles with nothing.

  • MiamiRaider78

    Raider O,

    All three of those coaches have been observing the game from the booth, so they should have a good grasp of how the game is being played etc. Hire one of the coaches I named and an up and coming O.C/D.C…This team will be 10 times more competitive than it is now.

From coaches to scouts to plane rides he’s over everything. It’s his responsibility the only person above him is the president or owner. His scope of responsiblity goes way beyond picking players.

    Thats the thing though. This is the NFL. What exactly is a “fair shot”? Id say DA was given a “fair shot” when he was hired. And what we see today with this team IS what he is doing with his shot. 31 other head coaches that have the same issues. Either you get it done or you dont. And this guy isnt getting it one. He has been given a fair shot and has failed with it. Can we at least get a nail biter or two? Getting blown out week after week just doesnt warrant another chance. If you are getting blown out this bad week after week, we can only hope you can go from terrible, to decent. Theyve already proven that he can take a team from competitive to terrible. Does he have the ability to take them from terrible to great?

    _________________________________________________________

    Don’t think anyone is blaming it on 2002. Not even the Jamarcus Russell pick is looked at as a culprit anymore. I think people are looking at lack of draft picks to get guys like Taiwan Jones, Barksdale, Palmer, Curry, etc. All of which were in the last couple years.

    If not the lack of draft picks for guys that might not even be good enough to be scrubs (save palmer), then maybe its all the money that was tied up in guys like Stanford Routt, Chris Johnson, Kamerion Wimbley, Tommy Kelly, Richard Seymour.

    Also-nobody has said give the guys a free pass. Everyone is sick with this season, but you can’t just disassemble everything and randomly put parts back in place every year, and hope something sticks. Thats what the Raiders god gave us the last 10 years, and it obviously didn’t work (8-8 twice is far from successful).

    You have to at least give one plan time to develop before discarding it-or else there will never be any rhyme or reason.

    Yes hire a proven winner and expect better results with same freaking players.. That’s not how things work, all teams need to keep on adding good players, especially ours since it wasn’t that good to begin with , we were like 25 M over the salary cap , Den enjoyed rolling over like 20 million from last year and try got P manning , NE still had cap room , and they will roll over more money than us again next year in hopes of improving their team in offseason , while we will be looking at which under performing player we should cut , Kelly?

    Shrug. If he’s right, then what’s to complain about? If he’s wrong, then nobody will care what this guy said.

    DA is not doing himself any favors having an unprepared team that just does not show up….

    but there are two types of players that can dash any competitiveness that a coach wants to instill: The aging player that is paid, unmotivated, and a couple steps slower than they were in their prime.

    The other: the young late round draft pick to undrafted players that might have some talent, but no smarts, or some smarts, but no talent.

    The Raiders roster is littered with both. Whether that is a condemnation of McKenzie has yet to be seen-as he inherited a mess.

    This team needed and needs a new direction. Whether this direction is the right one or not has yet to be seen. 10 games is not a fair amount to give the new regime when so much has changed.

    Not saying we should blindly trust DA and Reggie-but they need to be given a fair shot. I’m having a worse feeling about it all than I did in August, but ya can’t just scrap guys b/c they didn’t work miracles with nothing.
    ———————————————–
    Thats the thing though. This is the NFL. What exactly is a “fair shot”? Id say DA was given a “fair shot” when he was hired. And what we see today with this team IS what he is doing with his shot. 31 other head coaches that have the same issues. Either you get it done or you dont. And this guy isnt getting it one. He has been given a fair shot and has failed with it. Can we at least get a nail biter or two? Getting blown out week after week just doesnt warrant another chance. If you are getting blown out this bad week after week, we can only hope you can go from terrible, to decent. Theyve already proven that he can take a team from competitive to terrible. Does he have the ability to take them from terrible to great?

    _______________________________________________________

    I can 100% give up on DA and be fine with it. The team is awful and does not show up. Not sold that its DA’s fault, but can understand canning him. If he does stay, he has to show something, if not, whatever.

    My comment was meant more towards the thought about Reggie needing to go after one year.

    when i say “not sold its DA’s fault,” i mean ALL DA’s fault, cause a lot of it obviously is—he is the head coach.

    It’s as if you guys think Reggie will never signa bad contract……….haven’t you looked at what he’s done so far? Bad contracts are right around the corner based on what I’m seeing now.

    Whatever he gave Bartell is a bad contract IMO the same is true with Brisiel. The truth is I think you guys are in for a very rude awakening. he may not be as free with money as Mr Davis was because HE CAN’T. It’s not his money Mr Davis could do that because it was his team his money. Big difference!!

    Ok you’re just dumb , so we could of gotten Who? We couldn’t even keep the only decent pass rusher who wasn’t that great to begin with but was better than other players on this team, all of our secondary s8vks none of our CBs are playing for any team from last year..

    And your prediction was to make the playoffs while mine was 4-12.Now who the fk is dumb? Shut up already.
