Aaron Curry Should Just Keep His Mouth Shut

During the game against the Seattle Seahawks, Steven Jackson and Seahawks rookie linebacker (and highest paid outside linebacker in the NFL) Aaron Curry could be seen jawing at each other after a few plays.  Seahawks won the game, even though Aaron Curry was taken off the field on any formation except the Seahawks base 4-3 defense.

Steven Jackson talked about Aaron Curry on his weekly radio show:

“Some guys don’t know how to be pros and I feel he has not learned that yet,” Jackson told 101 ESPN St. Louis. “Someone is over there not teaching him what it means to be a pro. It’s all right to jaw jack but unnecessary hits and taking shots at guys that are defenseless, …  it’s not professional.”

I’m just sitting there jaw-jacking a guy and letting him know that I’m not backing down. It’s obvious I’m injured, it’s obvious that I haven’t practiced all week and if we want to go head-to-head for 60 or 70 plays in a row, I’m willing to do so. I’m not going to back down. I’m going to let him know there’s a whole another monster, a whole another level in the NFL and this is not Wake Forest or the ACC.”

So, Jackson calls out Curry for hitting players after the play and going after Steven Jackson specifically after plays are over.  Jackson is a veteran and one of the best running backs in the NFL.  It would be hard to imagine much coming from the Seahawks after Jackson called out Curry for being a little to big for his britches and a cheap shot artist.  However, behold the power of twitter and Aaron Curry’s response.

Now, I am not a linguistics expert, but I think Aaron Curry is calling Steven Jackson a fool.  Curry is quite lucky the season series between the Rams and the Seahawks is over, otherwise Curry would be targeted by a player much better and more ferocious than he ever say at Wake Forest.  And I’m more than certain Curry will be targeted by an entire offense in the two games that Rams play against Seattle next season.  I know Aaron Curry is a good player and I wanted the Rams to draft him to play MLB last year. (even going as far as to endorse him – needless to say I have revoked my endorsement)  However…

As the saying goes: “pick on someone your own size” and Aaron Curry is no where near Steven Jackson’s size.

Mr. Curry, you beat the Rams twice, but don’t think you had a huge hand in it unless you count late hits and trying to talk smack to veterans.  I suggest you keep your mouth shut.
