Orlando Franklin: Big O was a big no-show in the Super Bowl. To be fair, he was playing out of position at right tackle but he still had a rough game. Fast-forward a little over six months and Franklin has made the move over to left guard; a more natural position for him. Additionally, he will be paired up on the left side of the line with Ryan Clady. This is now probably the most formidable left side of any offensive line in the league. However, I still want to see him and Clady lock down PFM’s blind side; especially against an elite defense like Seattle’s. I would also like to see Denver work in a few running plays while he is in the game. I am interested to see if he can open holes for the running backs the way I believe he can.
