He's an all-around linebacker that happens to be very good at rushing the passer. He's going to be a beast for a very long time.
I don't think so. He only had two tackles and one was the sack. They consistently tried to run away from him. When they did run towards him he pushed upfield to set the edge which is exactly what you want to do against speed backs. Problem is no one else got any push and our backers got eaten up. Brookings was terrible today I wouldn't be surprised if we see more of DJ next week. Adams and Rahim had to come up and make a bunch of plays bc Brookings couldn't get off blocks. This was against the worst team in the leagues backup lineman. This is a concern goin forward IMO.
But Miller did exactly what he was supposed to do which is what we have come to expect from him. We didn't play with a lead so he wasn't able to pass rush much but he did well holding his ground against the run.
