CANTON, Ohio (AP) — It’s the first preseason NFL game, which means most starters get to visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame, then watch the youngsters go at it.So if you’re looking for any likely regulars on the field Thursday night for the Falcons and Broncos, focus on the offensive lines.
Denver’s new coach, Vic Fangio, will start three O-linemen who could be in the opening day lineup: left tackle Garett Bolles, rookie left guard Dalton Risner and center Connor McGovern. All need work on cohesion, a must for any blocking unit, but particularly when the quarterback is more stationary than most. That’s what the Broncos have in veteran Joe Flacco, acquired from Baltimore.
McGovern’s low snaps out of the shotgun have been a problem this summer, just as they were last season when he took over for an injured Matt Paradis, who left in free agency in the offseason.Offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello hopes the blockers get tested.
“Yeah, let’s see who can block a good pass rusher without chipping them,” Fangio said. “Even though they’ve got the box loaded, let’s see if we can run the ball up the middle.”
Atlanta’s front line battles have first-round picks Chris Lindstrom and Kaleb McGary competing for starting jobs at right guard and right tackle, respectively. Lindstrom was listed as the starter on the team’s first depth chart, while McCary is behind veteran Ty Sambrailo.
The Falcons have the weapons to be dynamic on offense, but not if Matt Ryan (who also will sit Thursday night) doesn’t get protection and Devonta Freeman doesn’t have room to run.
One of the all-time greats among offensive linemen will be on hand: Mike Munchak. Fangio said one thing he was looking forward to was seeing the OL coach’s bronze bust in the Hall of Fame.
“I’m sure Munch will be there charging a fee to take a picture with the guys with his bust,” Fangio said. “I’m going to try to get a picture with Mike standing next to his bust. That will be cool.”
