Andre Gurode Visiting the Seattle Seahawks Today

Wow, I am amazed.

Yesterday I wrote a piece about having a dream where across a television screen flashed a news update that the Seattle Seahawks had signed former Cowboys guard Leonard Davis.

For some reason it was for a five year contract, but that’s besides the¬†point.

Here’s an excerpt from that article:

it would very interesting to see if they signed him or recently released Andre Gurode in the coming days, or any Cowboys offensive lineman of note.

If it does happen, well, by a stroke of luck you heard it here first!

Yes, I will sincerely take some credit for this, I called this well before any sort of breaking news hit regarding the visit, I didn’t report he was actually visiting… But I mean, did you see anything else out there linking the Seahawks to Gurode before yesterday?

It’s kind of surreal actually, because I wasn’t going to write about it but I felt a very strong gut feeling that they were going to pursue a Cowboys lineman after seeing that in the dream.

This would be a good move for the Seahawks, Gurode is certainly a better player than Davis and would likely come in and claim a starting role. Something has to be done about the Seahawks pass protection woes. Even a quick and nimble Jackson has been getting pummeled behind Seattles green offensive line.

    The only problem with Gurode is he is 33 years old and by the the Hawks gel in 2 to 3 years, he’ll be all washed up. I could see him as a back-up or a starter for a year until Unger learns the offense pass protection schemes.

    I am inclined to agree with all of that, sort of. The thing is based on what I have seen there won’t be any potential to even gel with the state of the offensive line. This would be a signing that gives immediate impact without a vision towards the future like a Rice or Mebane, I deem it necessary and if 6 teams want the guy and the Cowboys state he’s not done as a starter, I think it would be wise to not let him leave Seattle without his Hancock on a contract.

    All it takes is one injury to the left side of the line to completely crumble this offense, oh wait… It already happened.. No doubt, I think we need a quality starter.
