    It's easy to reminisce about past players in their glory years.

    I don't even know why this thread exists. If Jason Garrett really does bring Gurode back, then we have a serious HC'ing problem.

    There are only six games left in the regular season for Dallas. They need them all, or have forsaken the team this year.

    I hate to have to admit at this point, but Gurode and Holland would elevate who are starting there in the interior right now. If it were even remotely possible to add tackles to the list, hey, just wishful thinking as an addition.

    But the team has already pulled off it's Practice Squad and two on the street free agents are starters now.

    If we signed Gurode and Montrae tomorrow morning I'd need new pants.

    If only...

    Holland graded out as a decent player on oline for us last year. Yeah, his attitude and decisions (fitness prior to camp, contract requests, etc) aren't always the best, but when he gets on the field, he doesn't wiff, doesn't get driven back, and actually moves the pile relatively often.

    Gurode, not sure if he has anything left, but if you aren't willing to put in Arkin as your 5th Center option then it is front office's job to GO GET SOMEONE ELSE TO HELP.

    Maybe missing most of the season and getting into shape (I have NO idea if it is true) will help Gurode and his knees enough to get in another half season.

    Dockery didn't look like the answer in there, and now Tyron could be out a couple weeks (so maybe Cook is needed at OT - yikes).

    and your imagination is working overtime

    But since you have been one of the foremost happy fans about this O line I am not surprised you reject any change

    I saw Gurode a few weeks ago at PSA in Plano. His daughter lays volleyball.

    He may be in shape for an OL but that shape is decidedly round.

    No harm in bringing him in for a try out though. He did play for the Steelers last year.

    Gurode at guard would be an upgrade...

    thought the reason he left was money. He might be affordable now .

    This from the foremost of the 'Costa can't play' brigade. That guy everyone is praying gets back soon....

    We're already down, this game, to playing our 5th string center, a lessor backup at left tackle, failing retread at guard, decent journyman right guard, and Mr Free(run). Everyone plays well with that sort of lineup, right?

    Gurode got the boot from the Ravens for good reason, and no team has picked him up 10 games into the season for a good reason. But if we did, it would somehow be a good deal! Hmn.

    Me, I don't understand why we have Dockerty instead of Holland. They might be just too chintzy to sign him. Happy to claim foul on that one. Though again, no one has picked HIM up, either.

    How are the 'Sign Grubs and Draft Decastro' banners holding up?
