As far as your grass analogy, it doesn't apply. You are fully aware of everything that goes on with your neighbor's lawn - down to to how often he takes care of it ...

Here we know nothing about this guy except that he used to be a started and was cut. Apples to oranges

who is this "we" you speak of, who doesnt know alot/nothing of this guy?

i live in cowboy country and see just about every single cowboys game for the past 25 years.

i can say w/o a doubt that gurode is nothing special and flozell adams was 10X the get that gurode would be. i'd just as soon stick with players who know what it takes to play for a champion, such as foster/legursky/essex/hills.

if headstomp will come in and play for cheaper than any of those 4 then more power to him (my money is still on our own).

Default Andre Gurode

Andre was released by the cowboys because he wouldn't restructure his contract. Would he be an upgrade at RG?

If he wouldn't redo his contract there I doubt if we could sign him on the cheap which is what we'd want to do. After saying that I think he'd be a big upgrade.

Maybe get him on a 1 year deal, a chance to win a Super Bowl and raise your price...

I think it could be a win win for both parties.

Default Re: Andre Gurode Just got cut

steelerfans are acting just as desperate and kneejerk as miami fans (whos o-line has some REAL and serious issues).

hopefully this little tidbit of info from one of their reporters can put this silly notion to rest-

Quote:
OmarKelly

Was told Andre Gurode's knees are shot, he's not in great shape & he's not fit to play center anymore. He's more depth material than starter
this reporter is baffled that just because of the tony sparano connection, dolphin fans wanna bring in 3/5 of the cowboys suck ass line to fix their dreadful woes.

I don't much about him, I was just wondering if he would be an upgrade or not... I think Flo could help us out...
