    Saw him coming out of Tom Thumb in Valley Ranch as I was headed in to the bank this evening.

    The guy is SMALL, at least for an offensive lineman, he's small. That Parcells off-season program must include a starvation diet. He may be better at center.

    Or better on heavy equipment paving highways. Then someone can call him a real road grader.

    What a bust.

    maybe not what we wished for Nors, but I think he is a C not a OG...
    I don't think he is a bust myself

    Amazing. Simply amazing. How in the world can you call this guy a bust when he changed positions once and is now changing positions back again due to a FA signing? I thought he was supposed to be some of that solid depth at OL we have this year. If Johnson gets hurt and Gurode puts in a solid season at center will he still be a bust?

    BTW 6-4 314 isn't small in my book.

    Gurode was almost a 1st round pick, early 2nd rounder. He was "moved" to Gurad. Has done nothing at all to solidify RG and has been in effect benched for good. He'll never beat Al Johnson out. He's teetering on a bust big time label and deserved.

    He won't be out Johnson, Rivera or LA and will be a backup. Just because you can't beat out any of those 3 doesn't mean you are a bust no matter when you were drafted. He is still should provide solid depth and that is all you can expect. With the pressure of starting not a factor any more, maybe his play will improve as well.

    Gurode is one of those guys that never fulfilled his potential, for whatever reason. A starter since coming into the league probably isn't a bust, but he hasn't been very good either.

    A lot of the players look small. dont think Gurode is one of them but Jamar Martin was alot smaller than I expected. He was like a midget bodbuilder, lol.

    Sorry guy. I recognized the face before I noticed how he wasn't this giant fat dude. I live in Las Colinas in Irving/Valley Ranch areas and I see these guys all the time so I no it was him. I also us the type of car they're driving to make sure and he was in a Cadillac that looked like it had been on "Pimp my Ride".
