    Another game, another view from the bench. Only when guard Montrae Holland wears a baseball cap on the sideline Thursday night for the Broncos' preseason finale, he'll do so with the knowledge he'll be returning to the starting lineup soon enough, when the games count Sept. 9, as the team's starting right guard. "It's different circumstances for sure," said Holland, an unrestricted free-agent pickup in March. Holland was the New Orleans Saints' top player at left guard last summer before a knee sprain derailed his training camp. By the time he was healthy, Jamar Nesbit had moved from right tackle into his spot and wouldn't relinquish it. Holland ended up as the top backup at both guard spots once the season began. And while New Orleans went on its storybook run to the NFC Championship Game, his situation made it difficult to enjoy the ride.
