Not really. Elvis in his last year on Denver's roster was on par with Phillips this year regarding sacks. Phillips also didn't have the benefit of rushing opposite of Miller most of the year. Look at their stats this year, Phillips was a much better player. Elvis is overrated. Awful run defender, on the downside of his pass rushing ability. To boot Denver saved millions with Phillips over Doom.
Elway strikes again. Even when he loses, he wins.
