Denver Broncos will do better?

The 68-year old 1989 Ring of Fame seemed highly optimistic while speaking to the club’s media representative about the team’s defensive line-up.

He also expressed his hopes to see the boys getting on the field, even if that means that games to be played without spectators. Later, the video of the interview was shared on Twitter.

Gradishar said, “I think they’re good. They’re only gonna be getting better. Chubb’s gonna be coming back. Von’s there. And the other guys are. They’ve long lost Curtis. With that, they have that … Because of injuries, that’s one thing you can never figure out. You get injuries throughout the year, and that certainly hurt you.

“So this coming year is gonna be different. It’s certainly gonna be … There’s COVID 19… I just hope they are able to play with the fans in the stands or there are no fans in the stands. At least we will be able to watch that.

“And I’m looking forward to the sideline being filled with NFL uniforms. It will be an opportunity to stay involved with the blockers and be a part of that in all the home games.”

Recipe for defensive success

He tends to strategize his defensive play around the inside linebacker. In 2019, Todd Davis was in charge of that particular position. This year too, he will be ready to show his prowess on the pitch.
