Forgot all about Gradishar... and yeah Nalen easily takes the center spot.

No problem with Nalen--Absolutely love the guy...no problem with Bill Bryan either...if not for Mike Webster constantly getting uber-props (like Jeff Saturday today) Bill Bryan would be properly remembered...I am sure some of the old school remember his accolades well. Like Safties and Tight Ends, the Broncos have been blessed for decades at Center. No issue here.
