Von is a great player, but he's just one guy. Easily take us as a whole.
Well lets take a sample size of the unit - since we have like 6 guys listed at LB and you have like 29 right now.
Unit C - Derrick Johnson(2 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 125 tackle),
Tamba Hali (9 sacks, 1ff, 1int, 51 tackles),
Justin Houston (10 sacks, 1ff, 1 int, 66 tackles)
Unit C has 242 tackles, 19 sacks, 5 ff, 2 interceptions
Unit B - Shaun Phillips (9 sacks, 2 ff, 50 tackles),
Wesley Woodyard (5 sacks, 1 ff, 3 ints, 117 tackles),
Von Miller (18 sacks, 6 ff, 1int, 68 tackles)
Unit B has 235 tackles, 32 sacks, 9 ff, 4 interceptions.
So unless 7 more tackles make Unit C better than Unit B, then they're still the C Unit.
