I'm suprised no body said anything about the two greatest players ever that the Seahawks drafted. They were pretty much invisible Sunday. Thank God we didn't draft either one of them.

It seems like Okung leaves the game with an injury every week now.

Curry had a pretty good game, dude is fast. I don't think Okung gave up a sack or much pressure, but I couldn't watch the game with undivided attention due to family being over.

What I'm surprised about is that nobody has mentioned Siavii, who looked like a fairly respectable player.

their LT had Hali in check for most of the game, was that Okung?

and I don't remember hearing Siavii's name once

The fact that he's still in the league is one of life's great mysteries.

Curry taking Vrabel's snaps right now sure would be nice.

Meanwhile Tyson Jackson is still one of the worst down-lineman in football.

Let's not beat our chests just yet, m'kay? Okung's a good football player that we just didn't need and Curry is a far better player than the guy we took ahead of him.

Earl Thomas + Okung Seems like a pretty damn sucessful draft to me...

I for one am glad the Seahawks aren't in the AFC west any longer, I think theyll be a fine team for years under Carrol.

Yeah, we beat the shit out of them but you can't take away the fact that as athletes, Curry and Okung are good players at their position. Seahawks may have shit coaching and bad scheming, but Curry is far and away better than what we picked instead of him.

Curry could be very good in a 3-4 as a OLB. They have him in a 4-3, and rarely ever rush him, Seahawks are content rushing 4 down lineman and hoping Savii/Chris Clemons and whoever else can get to the QB instead. So Curry sits in coverage most of the game, I think his speed and talents would be best displayed rushing in a 3-4. Like someone said if Curry had Vrabels spot on our defense it could be a very nice team to watch.

I do like Berry though, no matter how many mistakes he's made. Okung may have been the safer pick and the idea of Okung and Albert as our bookends does give me a chubby for years to come, but whatever. Okung is a very good LT, it's a shame he can't stay healthy this season, but when he's in there you can't knock his talent.


A Berry + Curry defense would have made something fun imo.

People didn't want Curry because he was a high salary player at a position of low impact.

If offered the choice between Curry or Jackson, everyone would have taken Curry, but that's basically picking herpes over AIDS.

A bunch of teams screwed the pooch at the top of that draft.

2,3,6,7, and 11 are all looking like busts.

Is this some kind of thinly veiled attempt to prop up the Chiefs' win?

The Seahawks have beaten:

San Francisco
San Diego
Chicago
Arizona
Arizona

They have been BLOWN OUT by Denver, Oakland, Kansas City, New York, New Orleans and St. Louis.

They also have no quarterback of the future.

That's a shitty team that needs a LOT of work.

Bullshit. Curry's physical abilities and combine numbers were off the chart. Butkus award winner. The fucking Chiefs took a safety at basically the same spot. Curry was a physical freak that backed up his draft status with the awards and the combine numbers. Tyson Jackson was a 4-3 defensive tackle that was projected to be a decent five tech in a draft with no five tech just as half the NFL was switching to the 3-4.

It was like picking a fresh, virginal Megan Fox over chlamydia.

A bunch of teams screwed the pooch at the top of that draft.

2,3,6,7, and 11 are all looking like busts.

I would have been very happy with Oher, Mack, Curry, Monroe or Sanchez that year. Hell, even Branden Albert stated that he'd have been happy to move over to guard if they drafted Monroe.

Troy Polamalu was worth over a touchdown a game to the Steelers. You can't say that's not an important position, especially in a pass-happy league. Besides, Berry was a much better safety prospect than Curry was a LB prospect.

Aaron Curry was a creation of media hype. Sean Weatherspoon had a more productive college career in a tougher conference and had a combine that was equally as good, and, arguably, better.

Curry had a better 40 time. Their broad jumps were essentially identical. Weatherspoon had much better vertical and put up 9 more reps despite weighing less.

He needs 2 more years to prove hes a #1 down-lineman.

Just give me two years.

Agreed. I would have gone with Raji and still would. I thought Jackson was going to flash something this year and I hope to god it's just slow recovery from his MCL injury, but man, what a waste of a draft pick right there.

Berry equated to Curry as a prospect. In fact, looking at the stats, there were a number of players at the safety position who had identical stats as Berry in the 2010 draft. Thomas and Burnett put up identical collegiate numbers as Berry along with similar combine stats.

Aaron Curry was a creation of media hype. Sean Weatherspoon had a more productive college career in a tougher conference and had a combine that was equally as good, and, arguably, better.

C'mon Hamas, you are better than that. Curry played in obscurity at Wake, but still managed to pull out the Butkus along with posting superb combine stats for a man his size. You don't give the Butkus to a guy from Wake because he was a product of media hype. Guys from Wake don't get media hype. Especially guys playing the SAM backer position. The guy was skilled and athletically gifted. He'd be a natural in the 3-4 at the LOLB position, especially with good coaching like Crennel.

If you don't think we'd be better off with Curry playing the SAM versus Jackson on the bench, you are nuts.


Weatherspoon was a hype machine all on his own.

This year, maybe next year, Eric Berry is going to be the best defensive player in the entire NFL. Okung will be on the bench nursing another injury.

if 40 times and combine drills equated into NFL success than the raiders would win the superbowl every year. Eric Berry is a fine physical specimen but he is also a very smart football player and has instincts. He will be the best safety in the entire NFL soon.

The question isn't Berry or Curry, it's Berry or Okung (and Berry wins that one hands down, Sacoshit has always been out to lunch there).

But I still don't see any validity to Hamas's position that Curry wouldn't have been a good fit for this defense as a TED linebacker. That player isn't asked to be an edge rusher; he's asked to be a very athletic, versatile linebacker that presents the threat of a rush but is also excellent in sealing the edge or in space. Curry can do both of those things quite well and has the athleticism to be a decent situational speed rusher as well (just not a primary guy).

Raji would've been the perfect pick there, but I still don't see any doubt that Curry would've been a much better pick than Jackson was. He'd be a very strong player in this system, IMO.

Maybe so.. All I know for sure is as soon as he leaves the Seahawks, he will become a stud linebacker in some scheme, some city, somehow.

That is how it works..

I'm usually a delusional optimist.. I think I'm finally becoming cynical after all these years.
