Which Denver Broncos players have the most to gain from playing well in the Hall of Fame Game against the Falcons? We take a look at each position.
The Denver Broncos are just days away from taking on the Atlanta Falcons in the 2019 Hall of Fame Game in Canton, OH.
Although the players probably don’t care to play in four — much less five — preseason contests, I’m thrilled to have Denver Broncos football back for the foreseeable future.
I’m sure you are as well.
Through the first few days of training camp, there has been a mixed bag of good and bad, mostly good for the defense and quite a bit of bad for the offense.
The Broncos just opened camp five days ago, so there’s nothing to be overly worried about at this point, but if this pace and trajectory keep up, there will be some things to worry about.
With a new head coach in Vic Fangio has come a completely new philosophy on how things operate on a day-to-day basis. The Broncos are going to somewhat of an old-school approach with no music in practice, longer team periods on the field, and an emphasis on fundamentals.
Although practices can tell you plenty, you can’t really get an authentic game situation on the practice field. These guys need in-game action to prove they can play in the NFL, and bottom-of-the-roster guys for the Broncos and Falcons are in luck. They get five games to prove they can play.
It’s not just bottom-of-the-roster guys who need to prove themselves, either. This Broncos roster is full of competition from top to bottom.
Here are the players (at each position) I feel have the most to gain from playing well in this, the first preseason game of the 2019 season.
