This line made me laugh:

"No rookie in the 36-year history of the organization has impacted the team as dramatically as Wilson did in 2012. That is a bold statement, but one that required about 30 seconds of verification."

Don't think of Curry as the wasted High draft pick, think of him as the pick that kept us from Having Sanchez instead of Russell Wilson

I like this line of thinking. Thank you, Aaron Curry. Thank you SO MUCH.

It's a life goal of mine to earn more income that Aaron Curry did while playing as a Seahawk. What's the figure?

I would absolutely agree with that statement if it concerns rookie QBs -- but if it concerns all rookies at other positions too, I would put Curt Warner on the same level. His impact was dramatic and immediate.

As a noob-fan of the Seahawks, I didn't have to live through the Curry debacle. I do remember thinking he was going to be an outstanding linebacker in the NFL when he was in college. He was one of those prospects that I loved--under-rated coming out of highschool, earned his respect on the field in college by being extraordinary (like Russel Wilson). I hate for you all to re-live the dissapointment, and I guess I could google it, but I'll ask you guys for the fan perspective of what the f.... happened that he became so irrelivant? Did he get injured? Did he have a family tradgedy and just give up? He was so great in college, as I recall. So, what happened?

I think what happened was the pro game was just too complex for him. At college he could just "out-athlete" people, and you can do that at the pro-level, but it is way more important to be in the right place at the right time. If your a step late in the pros, or un-sure, that's all the opponent needs, and you're effectively outta the play. I think the mental part of the pro-game just never "clicked" for him. Hope that helps.

Aaron Curry had such a low football IQ. I still remember one game where he was standing over the center, and still jumped offsides. Unbelievable.

What a shame. I remember him dominating in college, and Grobe (WF coach), has always been great at getting the most out of his players. He fields a team of 2-star talent every year and exceeds expectations. I never thought Curry would fail because he didn't know enough or didn't try enough--his character seemed to be the best part about him as I recall. Maybe he got a bad head injury after college if he suddenly became stupid. What a shame of wasted talent. Its obviously not the Seahawks' fault as he only had one tackle on the year for the Raiders.

Well, just because the pro-level was to tough for him doesn't mean he's stupid. The nfl is tough. The x and o's and the mental part of the pro-game is on a higher level than the collegiate one. He just couldn't make the adjustment.

I remember in that draft, the main person i wanted the Hawks to draft was Crabtree, and then later Mike Wallace...

One of the guys at Field Gulls ended up just referring to Curry as "Bull In China Shop", which was perfect. His effort was always outstanding, but he was out of control and just didn't have the instincts to be a great player. You run play action, he's biting on it. You run a counter, he's biting on it. You snap it on two instead of one, he's jumping.

I remember Wake had quite a few guys drafted that year and none of them turned out. Further cements the coaching ability of the guy down there.

I remember that first game against the Rams, where Curry was all over the place. He made a hit on SJax and started talking. I actually kind of liked it, but a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Then there was the Tea-Bagging of Alex Smith in Carroll's first game as coach. Great stuff and I would draft Curry again if it meant not getting Sanchez.

I recall watching the hawks scrimmage at husky stadium during petes first year.... I remember watching curry during warm ups and noticing that he was watching the airplanes fly around.... it wasnt a big deal but it made me think he just didn't have his head in the game. It didnt seem that significant of an observation but he just seemed aloof and not focused. Definitely not a Russell Wilson type.
