Our running game is going to suffer, and we are already seeing early signs of it.
You know, the Denver running game has always been described as plug & play. Most people think of the running back, but it was also true for the OL. For most of Kubiak's tenure in Denver, most of their OLmen were unknowns....i.e. Chris Myers. They developed those guys for their system & had that next man up mentality.
