No doubt Miller will have to get better at covering because as a LB he can't play at the LOS all the time.
Yeah the staff has a chore in front of them to teach Von how to be a complete LB, not just a guy that attacks the LOS.
Also though, I wonder if the lack of a real 3-down MLB calling plays has hurt the D alignments. Wesley Woodyard was taking the play calls in the nickle D, and he's way out there on the right side, how is anybody on the other side of the D supposed to hear if he wants to make a change pre-snap? Many people have said we need a real MLB, and that's another reason to want one, a guy in the middle that can direct traffic, not a guy on the far edge trying to direct traffic.
