    Here's another scouting report on Curry:

    Playing Strength and Explosion: Curry likes to line up close to the line of scrimmage, where he can use his explosion and burst to avoid blocks and cause havoc in the backfield. He has no problems when he has to face up, as he makes it tough for bigger blockers to handle him when he uses his athleticism to slip past linemen, but he needs to display better hand usage and strength to shed and keep blockers off his body, especially when pinched back inside. He will sometimes throw a shoulder, but he is most effective executing his punishing arm swipes to split double teams. He displays the lower body power to step up and fill the inside rush lanes, again a strong aspect for a potential move to middle linebacker. When he plays at a good pad level, he can keep containment with leverage on the tight end. GRADE: 8.2

    Sounds awesome if anything he adds better stronger depth...#1 plug up holes, #2 tackle tackle tackle/wrap up n take down #3 dont over pursue, stick to your lanes.

    This has been brought to you by the letter D and the word Fence.

    Yes I voted Obama, I love me some Sesame Street. hahaha

    And another one:

    Pass Defense: Curry's Achilles heel is his penchant to bite often on play-action fakes. He lacks good depth in his pass drops, but does a good job of eyeballing the quarterback and getting a jump on plays in front of him. Still, teams completed 71.1 percent of their passes into his area in 2008. He just does not have the hip flexibility to turn and drop with proper angle and depth. He has a better feel for pass coverage in the short area, another reason to view him more as an inside linebacker than on the strong-side. GRADE: 6.3
    Alot of reasons to move him over to the MLB position.

    I dont see this as a 3-4 play. He is better than burris mcclain and wheeler without question. When he is back too 100% they will be his backups not vise versa. Im not saying he is the best out there, just saying our current LBs are fair at best although Miles has a good upside

    That was the scouting report when he came out of college. Though he was a strongside LB in college his weaknesses have been exposed since being drafted. It happens to all players who come into the league. He will be better in the middle because of the short zone.

    Curry might be better, but he's no certainty. He's another guy that our starving fans are viewing as a savior.

    I'm just hoping he can grow as a player a little bit and find the ability to contribute consistently.

    He can save our run defense. Get rid of McClain!

    Trust me when I tell you, there was no need for you to tell me you see the guy as a savior.

    until he is in game shape that is exactly what he will be, a backup and situational downs IMO.

    That's pretty obvious but he has been practicing and considering how we just got smashed by Martin i can see Curry getting involved pretty quickly. You can look at the man and see he stays in shape i don't think that will be any problem at all.

    I agree with this Curry is the best LB on the roster without question. He is best suited in the middle of the D. The 3-4 would be the way to go Wheeler, Curry, McClain and Burris. With the DL we have we can rotate guys in an out and be fine up front. Honestly a 4-3 with Curry in the middle of it looks better than the 4-3 with McClaon in the middle. I've never seen McClain take on an OT the way Curry did McKinnie last year in the Charger game. That was an example of what we've been missing for quite some time from our LB's.

    Curry is a very physical player and against Tampa Bay who have been our most physical opponent so far this season,our team got knocked around.Maybe his physical game can rub off on a few people on offense,defense and special teams because we definitely need to become that if we want to turn the corner and IMO it is how the game should be played.
