Tonight football commences.
Like most seasons, the HOF Game will be a time for the backups to shine, with the majority of starters sitting out.
New Denver coach Vic Fangio wants to see the unit build some cohesion and get tested in a live situation.
"Yeah, let's see who can block a good pass rusher without chipping them," Fangio said, via the Associated Press. "Even though they've got the box loaded, let's see if we can run the ball up the middle."
It's the -- checks watch -- 45th time Broncos GM John Elway has shuffled the offensive line during an offseason in an effort to finally get it right. Fine, 45 is an exaggeration, but it's seemingly a yearly process for Denver to try to revamp its blocking unit. The last several seasons have gone sideways quickly.
"I'm sure Munch will be there charging a fee to take a picture with the guys with his bust," Fangio quipped. "I'm going to try to get a picture with Mike standing next to his bust. That will be cool."
Fangio will get to see Munchak's bust and see how the O-line coach's young core does on the field against a live opponent.
