Von will be a asset rather than a liability in the run game as the aforementioned player was for his entire career.




DT was not a liability against the run, Rob. He certainly wasn't the best at it, but he wasn't awful either.
He wasn't good in coverage, but Marty never needed him to be. James Hasty, Jerome Woods, Dale Carter and Reggie Tongue were so reliable that Marty could just rush DT every play. With DT and Neil Smith we never had to worry about pass defense. They got to the QB before he could make up his mind.

It's crazy how much publicity Watt gets and how little Von does.

Ok I am not trying to be that guy...BUT in today's society this is debated all day long, just look at ESPN First Take.

Reason is Watt is white and you don't see many white athletes dominate at any other position than QB. Conversely the the same type of thing happens at the QB position where black QBs are labeled as runners first. Just witness all the Cam Newton, etc. talk that got Warren Moon extremely pissed off.

Watt being white and leading the league in sacks is what gets all the publicity. Let's face it, it's not like Houston is an attention grabbing market...

I was about to say, Jared Allen looks like white trash. JJ Watt looks more all american white boy.

That's my theory and I am sticking to it

I think Watt leads in tackles for loss now too. Dude is probably getting defensive MVP - unless Miller keeps having these kinds of games.

BTW, what happened to Justin Houston? He seemed like he was emerging as an elite player and now he hasn't had a sack in three games.

Watt also has 4 pass tips at the line that resulted in INTs. He is getting publicity, but well deserved.

Von gets plenty and you can be sure the only attention that counts, i.e. the opposing team having to scheme against him is what matters.

Absolutely love when he rag dolls a 325 lb offensive lineman like he did today. Dude much have a serious bench press.

After Januaryís Senior Bowl, Miller bulked up 9 pounds of muscle for the NFL Combine At 6í3 and 246 lbs., Miller ran a 4.53 40 yard dash time, did 21 reps of the 225 lb. bench press, had a 37Ē vertical jump and a broad jump of 10 Ĺ feet. His 11.15 second 60-yard shuttle broke the Combine linebacker record. Experts compare Miller to a young DeMarcus Ware due to his raw strength and skill.

It's early days but for a number of reasons, Miller is on the way to being one of my favorite Broncos... ever. He's a one man gang when he's on... and quickly becoming a complete player. Absolute pass-rush terror, and the best part... finds a way to physically dominate guys who are nearly 100 lbs heavier than him on a regular basis. Beyond that, seems to be a decent guy with a decent head on his shoulder.

Once again, it's early days... but he's got what it takes to be one of the best to ever wear our colors.

How anyone can watch Von Miller play and not see greatness in the making is beyond me.

He is an absolute stud.

JJ Watts stats so far: 37 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks, 10 passes defended and 21 QB hits. Wow


Incredible that this kid was delivering pizza's not long ago and now he's the best defensive player in the NFL this year.

Hard to get publicity when all everyone talks about is tebow and manning.

Schaub is a good QB but no one really cares about him.

We can only hope Von has the career Derrick Thomas had. Also Thomas was not the liability against the run some try to make him out to be. He was pretty stout against the run but his pass rushing ability overshadowed that aspect of his game.
