Default Aaron Curry impresses in Seahawks' opener

My favorite prospect from the draft played his first game on Sunday, and he made just the impression that I expected.

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...55_hawk14.html

Quote:
The first defensive play of Aaron Curry's NFL career ended with a shoving match against Rams running back Steven Jackson. The second play concluded with Curry depositing St. Louis guard Jacob Bell on his keister.

Consider it a strong message from a strong man. Seattle's rookie linebacker is 254 pounds of bad intentions until the whistle blows. "Just letting them know that this defense, we're not going anywhere," he said. "No matter what you do, we're going to be here for 60 minutes."

"We just stayed together," defensive tackle Brandon Mebane said. "We had a lot of adversity on the field and we just stayed together." They stayed aggressive, too, especially Curry.

Leroy Hill suffered a groin injury in the first half and didn't return, Lofa Tatupu's hamstring tightened up in the second half and he left the game though that was more precautionary but Curry stayed on the field, his motor revving as opponents overheated. Jackson was called for a personal foul at the end of the first half because of something he did to Curry.


"He was angry at the world," Curry said. "He was mad at the whole defense." Coach Jim Mora said the referee came over at least three times, telling him to have No. 59 calm down. "But every time I talked to him on the sideline, he was very calm," Mora said of Curry. "He wasn't frenzied. He wasn't out of his mind. He was in control. He just plays with a passion, energy and emotion and speed." Curry played with a purpose Sunday. "We were referred to as being soft," Curry said. "So we've got to change our image."

Curry finished the game with four tackles, but his impact was best measured by the statement he made in his first game as a Seahawk which was physical from the first play to the final whistle.

"We just wanted them to know, no matter how hard you push us, we're going to be here," Curry said.
We could have really used a leader like this guy.

I thought Cushing was flying around pretty well. I think he's gonna be a rock as the season progresses. We got 1 big hit out of him already, if he averages 1 a game that'll be about 10 times more than anybody else will do. And if the DTs keep sucking he'll end up with about 130 tackles this season. That would be serious DROY material. Didn't see him used much as a pass rusher but he looks fast on the field.

I liked Curry a lot to go number 1 in the draft, and it won't surprise me to see him have an awesome rookie year.

Would love to see his intensity in a Texans uniform this weekend.

They may have been the only people doing that.

That's why I mentioned them. Because they need to be the ones to force the rest of the D to do the same!

I like how he plays angry...I just wish Kubiak let the players get angry from time to time. I remember some epic camp battles in the past with some really good Oiler teams but at Camp Kubiak, I think he makes you sit in the naughty chair if you fight in camp. Football is a game of aggression. Get your mad on but keep it under control. I love it when I see players playing angry. Imposing your will on people is a big part of the game.

damn good point.
I wonder if that comes from Kubiak or from McNair - he's the one who insists on having only Boy Scouts on his payroll.

All you can do is set the example, it's up to your team mates to follow your example. I want pissed off players who take no prisoners.
