    He deserves it. Guy was tough as nails and a huge part of our run game for years. I'll never forget him playing the Lions with a torn pectoral muscle, how many lineman can do that?

      Absolutely. Was fun watching those guys change what it was to play on the offensive line.

            This is really awesome. He is a fan favorite. Which is crazy for an O-lineman.

            He was great gritty mean strong all the good things you want from a center.

                I'm happy to hear this. It's hard to be an offensive lineman and get any recognition, much less ring of fame recognition.

                    One of the most underrated centers of all time. Can't wait to see him be inducted into the ring of fame. I hope he makes it to Canton one day, he definitely deserves it.

                      He's one of my favorite Broncos, probably the best lineman we've had if not top 3. It is well deserved and I'd go as far to say he even deserves the Hall Of Fame. But it's a rarity for a lineman to get there... especially one that played for Denver.

                      I remember him, Casey, Ben, and the others. Aka the Silent guards. Avoiding the media at all times.

                        I hope he grows his mane back out for the induction, it's weird seeing him without hair now

                          Awesome! Well deserved honor for one of the best O lineman this team has ever had.

                            I was super excited to hear about this. Pretty much everyone on that O Line was fantastic, but Tommy was the center post that kept them together. That and I have always liked how that O Line as good as they were didn't talk smack or at all for that matter (I think Nalen was a big reason they did this) just showed up and worked hard. Couple that with the fact that he is still living in Denver being awesome and I couldn't be happier with their selection.

                              You know what would be cool. He shows up says no cameras, just to joke about how he and the others didn't talk to the media.
