    Sure, but there's a big difference in a bullrush where you have the T off balance and holding your ground, shedding a block and keeping contain. That's why I'm interested, I think Gardeck has a very good power to weight ratio. He's a rocked up strong dude for his size and if he can keep his ground and shed blocks then we could be looking at a good OLB in the making.

    I hope he is because he's a good dude and it's always great to see a guy work his nuts off to earn a role.

    He's going to spend most his time with us injured then go make the Pro Bowl in his first year with another team? Sounds about right actually.

    My vote for number 1 fan favorite. The guy always leaves it all out on the field and isn’t afraid of being a goofball in front of millions. We need a stadium chant for him.

    So he’s what we hoped Cap Cappi would be.

    Many years ago, the Golden State Warriors had a guy like Gardeck, Brian Cardinal, us fans liked to call "The Janitor."

    Gardeck is actually a very good athlete. Just read his story on ESPN. He blew it up at the combine but nobody had any idea who he was.

    Gardeck is proving to be a nice surprise this season. He may not be top of the list as far as physical traits but he gets the job done.

    Over production from what I expected. I hope he can last the whole season at this pace!

    Had he competed in this year's combine he would have been one of the 5-7 fastest linebackers with about a 4.5 40 and would have lead all linebackers in bench reps with 31.

    Gardeck the Destroyer before he joined the Cards:

    ''The lovely woman-child Kaa was mercilessly chained to the cruel post of the warrior-chief Beast, with his barbarian tribe now stacking wood at her nubile feet, when the strong clear voice of the poetic and heroic Gardeck the Destroyer roared,

    "Flick your Bic, crisp that chick, and you'll feel my steel through your last meal.' ''

    That speed and strength ratio is why his bull rush is so effective
