watching the videos on him hes about as medicore as they come

classic eagle pick where they go for the motor/effort guy rather than the higher skilled player

been watchin him a lot this morning and he should change his name to darryl victor parker graham III

i will say there more hope with him just because if washburn is half as much of the god like figure people say he is that maybe curry can be coached up more than their past DE picks were

Not as much explosion as Cox, though.

i dont see it but lets hope...he does seem a lot stronger than any of them save abiamiri...and his hands are really powerful...i think he can be productive if coached up i just dont see him being able to get the edge on a consistent basis

Good stuff with Curry on EaglesLive...he's pretty personable. He was breaking down Boykin pick when they announced it

pretty god damn farging cool....

Quote
As Brian Dawkins spoke so eloquently and emotionally Saturday morning about his remarkable career and his place in Eagles history, a 23-year-old kid sat silently in the second row of the NovaCare Complex auditorium soaking up each word.

“For most people, the draft is the best day of their life,” Vinny Curry said. “But growing up an Eagle fan, being blessed with the opportunity of seeing Brian Dawkins retire and give a speech here, this has got to be the best day of my life.”

Curry, the Eagles’ third-round pick out of Marshall, grew up in Central Jersey as a huge Eagles fan.

How huge?

When NFL Network asked permission to come to his house for the draft, he declined. Turns out he didn’t want to have to get rid of all the Eagles memorabilia on the walls. The caps, gloves, helmets and – most of all – the Brian Westbrook No. 36 jersey.

“I wasn’t taking the stuff down,” he said with a laugh Saturday afternoon. “This was my last day, if I would have gone to a different team, of being an Eagle fan.”


Curry cracked up as he talked about Freddie Mitchell and his championship belt routine. He talked about how the Eagles struggled in the late 1990s, before the arrival of Donovan McNabb – who he got to meet Saturday. He spoke about Trott and Duce and Hugh. Bobby Taylor, Troy Vincent.

He sounded just like one of us.

The only difference is that a bunch of his heroes were there Saturday to welcome him to the brotherhood.

“Michael Vick told me if I ever need anything to call him, and he’s going to take me under his wing and show me the ropes,” Curry said. “People here are so embracing, and it’s very humbling.

“As a fan, you never really know the people outside the helmet. So you always wonder, and you come up with impressions of what that person is until you actually meet them and you’re like, ‘Wow, he’s probably one of the nicest people I ever met.”

As a fan, Curry never made it to an Eagles game. The preseason opener against the Steelers on Aug. 9 will be his first.

“My dad couldn’t afford tickets,” he said. “I just watched in the living room and pretended I was there.”

Curry didn’t have to pretend Saturday.

He was there for the show.

He watched spellbound as a video featuring Dawkins’ most crushing hits was shown on a movie screen. He watched Vick, Jeremiah Trotter, McNabb, Tra Thomas and several other Eagle greats walk onto the stage. He watched owner Jeff Lurie’s historic announce that Dawkins’ No. 20 would be retired. And then he watched Dawkins’ riveting retirement speech.

“It brought back some memories in my household as a kid,” Curry said. “Watching the Eagles game on Sundays, trying to rush home from Pop Warner games to see them boys play.”

It was overwhelming.

“To see his teammates come back, the way they embraced him, and the way they embraced me was really something special,” Curry said. “It’s a moment I’ll never forget in my life.”

The symmetry was striking. Curry’s NFL career was starting on the same day and in the same room as the career of one of his favorite players was ending.

“His passion for the game is similar to the way that I love the game,” Curry said. “He wears his emotion on his sleeves, just like I wear my emotions on my sleeve, if you watch the tape. When he was talking about sore losing and not wanting to shake the other [team’s] hands, it sounded like me, but just an older version.

“To just be here and meet him, it’s unbelievable, because I see myself in everything that he was talking about. I was really sitting back there and fighting back not to tear up. ...

“I used to picture myself on Sundays and say, ‘This is going to be me one day.’ To actually see everything come through, it’s mind blowing. I’m a really positive guy, and I just want people in my hometown and all across the world to know, there’s never a dream too big. As long as you stay positive and stay true to yourself, all things are possible.”

And that’s why Curry was so upbeat, so positive, so happy Saturday, even though he began the weekend as a projected first-round pick and wound up being selected very late in the second round.

“I was upset that I slid,” he said. “But I slid into a perfect situation. Life if it’s 100 degrees outside and I slid into the pool.”

Hours after Saturday’s ceremony was over, Dawkins, McNabb, Trotter and several other Eagles and former Eagles were still mingling and laughing and sharing stories in the NovaCare cafeteria.

At one point, Curry walked in, and Vick pulled him aside.

“He told me, ‘You’re not an Eagles fan anymore,’” Curry said. ‘“You’re a teammate.’”

Bout farging time

its not time if he cant play....the problem here hasnt been that they have not dressed him....its that he hasnt done anything to deserve to be dressed....andy has has repeatedly showed acts of utter desperation over the last couple of years and yet he wont call on a number 3 draft pick to see if he can possibly spark an inept pass rush

me thinks the cat cant play and thats the problem...the pick itself
