If the return of Brian Dawkins wasn’t set to be emotional enough already, it just got a bit more interesting. Head coach Josh McDaniels has announced that the Denver Broncos defense will be announced in Sunday’s game against the Eagles. This means Brian Dawkins name will be introduced and he will run onto the field at the Linc for more than likely the final time.
When asked how Dawkins thought the crowd would react he said the following:
“Obviously it has crossed my mind what’s it going to be like. Whatever it is, I know they’ve appreciated me just like I’ve appreciated them over the years, so I don’t expect anything crazy.”
I expect Dawkins to receive a standing ovation. The guy deserves it. He is one of the best players to ever come through this organization and should find himself in the Hall of Fame someday. Personally, I will be in attendance and will definitely be on my feet making as much noise as I possibly can (and booing the other 10 guys of course).
