Universal Sports Ent Client Philadelphia Eagle Vinny Curry Makes USA Today News

Screen Shot 2013-11-11 at 10.34.51 AMHow often does a player tell an umpire he’s doing a good job?

Hey when you live in the city of Brotherly Love “Philadelphia” What else is to be expected? Vinny Curry defensive end for the Philadelphia Eagles consistently makes National News Coverage Every Single Week! For a 2nd round draft pick his 2nd year in the league I would definitely say this is a man who has a public relations team and agency that cares. Check out what USA Today and  Philly.com

Vinny Curry Screen Shot 2013-11-11 at 10.40.11 AMThat’s a full-on embrace — not one of those weak hand-slap, man-hugs. The umpire tries to keep it professional, like he knows he’ll get downgraded this week if the league sees him hugging players, but you can tell he wants to reciprocate.

Given the NFL’s current safety-at-all-costs climate, a defender who so much as looks shiftily at a quarterback risks getting a 15-yard penalty. So after Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry leveled Green Bay Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien on Sunday, there was a reasonable chance he’d be seeing some yellow laundry decorating the field. When the flag wasn’t thrown, Curry was appreciative to the officials — too appreciative, perhaps, for the umpire’s taste.

Philadelphia Eagles Activate Vinny Curry Against The Kansas City Chiefs

hi-res-6533278_crop_northPHILADELPHIA – Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry finally got to wear his uniform last night Thursday September 19th (Mark Your Calendars) as this is the first mark in the History that is yet to come from Curry.Thursday night Curry, the Eagles’ second-round draft pick in 2012, made his season debut against Kansas City after spending the first two games on the inactive list.

He made an impact early in the game by forcing Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith into an incompletion.

“I definitely want to be out there,” Curry said earlier in the week. “The only thing I can do is keep working and practicing hard.”

Curry enjoyed a solid training camp and played well in the preseason, but found himself watching the season-opening victory at Washington and last Sunday’s loss to San Diego while wearing a warmup suit on the sideline.  To read this entire article visit Dave Weiner’s column in Press of Atlantic City

Eagles Fire DL Coach Jim Washburn, Bring Back Former Coach Tommy Brasher

EaglesCoachFiredAnother day, another coach fired by the Philadelphia Eagles. This time it’s defensive line coach Jim Washburn who is being shown the door. Check out what the Bleacher Report had to say. See below

From Eagles Insider:  Lastest Tweets  12/3:

Eagles InsiderEagles Insider ‏@EaglesInsider  AR: Bringing back Brasher brings a loyal, loyal guy who understands what I’m trying to get done w/ young defensive line.

AR: This isn’t a move to save my job, it’s a move I thought needed to be done now, so I did it now.@EaglesInside dismiss Jim Washburn if duties as defensive line coach. Bring back former defensive line coach Tommy Brasher

Andy Reid had the following comments on the move (via Kelly Bayliss of NBC 10 Philadelphia):

Jim is a fine football coach and we appreciate the efforts he gave to this team over the past two years. However, I determined that it was in the team’s best interest that we move in a different direction in terms of trying to maximize the production of that position group. We look forward to having Tommy Brasher back on board to work with the defensive line.

Washburn famously brought the Wide 9 defensive line scheme with him to Philadelphia in 2011, which was designed to improve the Eagles pass rush. It seemed to work last year; Trent Cole finished with 11 sacks and Washburn favorite Jason Babinfinished with a whopping 18.

That wasn’t the case this year, however, as the Eagles struggled to generate a pass rush and many fans and pundits began poking holes in the Wide 9 scheme. The alignment puts a lot of pressure on the linebackers to fill in the gaps created by the wide alignment of the defensive ends and requires dominant defensive tackles to clog the middle of the formation.

Simply put, many folks in Philadelphia didn’t feel the Eagles had the personnel to run the alignment.

It came to a head this year when the disappointing Babin was cut by the Eagles. That was a move that apparently wasn’t popular with Washburn—the two are extremely close—and may have foreshadowed his eventual dismissal.

Contact Jeff McLane at jmclane@phillynews.com. Follow on Twitter @Jeff_McLan Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer:

Jeff McLane@Jeff_McLane : Just got this from one  coach: Jim Washburn “had become a cancer.” As I wrote last week, DL coach was unhappy when Babin was waived.

The dominoes continue to fall in Philadelphia, now a disappointing 3-9 on the season. Wholesale changes are expected at the end of the season.

For now, the Eagles are offering fans previews on an almost weekly basis at this point of what’s to come. This week, it was Washburn.

Who’s next?

Vinny Curry #Rookie Philadelphia Eagles defensive end “Doesn’t Need a Holiday to Remember His Mom’s Love”

Vinny Curry is truly cut from a different cloth. This Big Ole Teddy Bear will soon be able to display his Mountain Lion skills on the field that I’m willing “to bet 5 Martini’s” will lead the Eagles all the way to the Super Bowl! I tell my boys everyday is mother’s day and guess what? Vinny Curry is definitely on the same page. According to our friends at the Daily News : see below

It’s Mother’s Day each time Eagles rookie defensive end Vinny Curry plants his right hand in the ground.

Tattooed on the right forearm of Curry, the second-round pick out of Marshall, is the image of Linda “Cissy” Jackson, his biological mother, who passed away last October.

“She was a strong lady,” Curry said. “Very independent. Very, very independent. One of the strongest people I knew. Even though she was fighting that cancer, she was still trying to do normal things. Even carrying that tube around, she would carry that tube around everywhere to pay her bills and everything. She was a very strong lady.”

Jackson died from liver cancer. The tube Curry spoke of was used in her treatment. Her selfless routine never will be forgotten. There were moments Curry wished his late mother had taken care of herself before she made sure he and his brother Thomas were fed. It was tough. Tough, just like this Mother’s Day.

“It’s a special day,” Curry said. “This is the first one without her. Everything will get better. Everything will get better.”

Difficult as it is to measure progress at a rookie camp, Curry seems to be getting better on the field. He is quicker than he imagined. If nothing else, this camp gives him the first baseline of what it will take to keep pushing on to the next level.

“My 100 miles an hour from the college level has to be 200 miles an hour here,” the 6-3, 266-pound Curry said. “I’m having some fun. Usually I’m more energetic, hyper. But right now I’m just trying to learn everything. I don’t want to jump the gun yet. Basically I’m just really trying to prove myself. This is a different speed. So my 100 miles an hour, I just need to get into a little bit better shape.

“I’ve just got to keep pushing.”
