3 things to watch for
1. So long, starters: Don’t hope to see many 1st stringers take the field. Broncos trainer Vic Fangio said “most of the starters” on his squad would be held out of action, & the Atlanta Falcons are expected to follow suit, with wide receiver Julio Jones & quarterback Matt Ryan among those who are already believed to be out. The one concession could be along the attacking line, where both Denver Broncos & Flacons are trying to develop recent top draft picks.
2. QB intrigue: Joe Flacco’s Broncos debut will have to wait, as the thirty four year old won’t play at the Hall of Fame. But the Denver’ quarterback outlook still bears watching with 2nd round pick Drew Lock set to compliment as the backup to Kevin Hogan. Fangio didn’t hold back in his training camp valuation of Lock, saying the erstwhile Missouri passer is “a strong-throwing pitcher that doesn’t yet know how to pitch.” Meanwhile, Kurt Benkert will attempt to make an impact on Dan Quinn & the rest of Falcon’s coaching staff after spending his trainee season on the practice squad.
3. Coaches in new roles: The sixty year-old Fangio will be playing the role as head coach for the 1st time in his profession at the Hall of Fame game, & the Denver is eager to erase the memory of their 1st repeated losing seasons since 1971-72. But Quinn also finds himself in fairly new terrain as he takes on the extra role of defensive coordinator this season following the dismissal of Marquand Manuel. On offense, the Falcons will turn to an acquainted figure, as Dirk Koetter returns to head the unit after serving as coordinator for the team in the year 2012.
