On Tuesday, Fangio spoke to the media to wrap up the 2020 season and about finding the right replacement for Elway. Here's what we learned.
In January, Lloyd Cushenberry III became a national champion. In April, the 22-year old became John Elway’s highest-drafted center ever.
Now, he has a chance to add a cherry on top of what has already been a magnificent year by competing for the Denver Broncos’ starting center position.
On paper, he did just that by signing a Pro-Bowl running back, drafting an All-American receiver and selecting one of the fastest wideouts in the draft. With all of the new additions, including key pickups on the offensive line, the Broncos will have many new faces in the starting lineup.
As 24-ounce prime porterhouses, ringing up a cool $65, sizzled in a scalding-hot plate at Del Frisco’s on Sunday night, the Denver Broncos didn’t feel like a 3-7 team. And they might have set the path for the team moving forward.
Garett Bolles isn’t going anywhere. For now, the answer for the Broncos’ left tackle is to hope the Mike Munchak affect kicks in in a hurry.
Against the Bears, in a near 90-degree day, the heat was on Garett Bolles all game long. And Khalil Mack, one of the games elite players, wasn’t even his biggest problem.
With the offseason, training camp and preseason complete, building the roster is the only thing that stands between the Broncos and the regular season.
The Broncos’ fourth preseason game on Saturday night against the Los Angeles Rams will look like, well, a fourth preseason game.
