Anyone GIF the car-crash hit yet? The one where Von shot through the gap and basically just ran him over. Think it was early in the 4th?

Pretty please?

Please do not get heart broken over it. Because your petty snipes mean nothing to me.
In your non expert arm chair opinion.

No one is heart broken. But the fact you would take a player over Miller without even thinking about it is laughable.

Miller right now is having a DPOY type season.

This is by far my favorite Von Sack dance.

Loved the missed assignment by the line when Rivers tried to make a pre snap adjustment.

Miller right now is having a DPOY type season.
He has had two outstanding games against two teams with lousy olines, one with a QB in a sophomore slump at best the other with a hot and cold QB..

Watts has played pretty consistent ball all year..

I'll bet that nationwide a hell of a lot more folks would take Watt over Miller also.

Both aree going wreak havoc for years. One from DE the other from OLB. Frankly Miller seems to have improved more this year becoming a more complete player as last year they would run the ball past him while he was going for the sack.

I'm glad he is a bronco. But still Not sure why anyone that is not a complete homer would not be ok with a fan thinking that Watt is better.

Depends who is counting - in most statistics they are separate things but typically during draft prep they add the two together when talking about defenders.

Von Miller was the Broncosí most dominant player Sunday, even with Peyton Manning as his teammate.

Thatís no surprise. Miller might be the NFLís best defensive player. Better than J.J. Watt, the Texansí splendid defensive end. Better than Charles Tillman, the Bears cornerback who has turned forcing fumbles into an art form.

att and Tillman both had a terrific September and October. But Miller is having a November to remember. Millerís performance Sunday was sensational. He had three sacks, two forced fumbles and two tackles for a loss, leading the Broncos to a 30-23 victory over the Chargers.

Miller now leads the NFL with 13 sacks. He has seven in the last three games. In only his second season, Miller has joined Reggie White, Dwight Freeney, and Javon Kearse as the only four players with 11 sacks or more during their first two seasons.

When Miller comes roaring off the edge from his outside linebacker position, he invokes memories of his idol, Derrick Thomas, the late Chiefsí Hall of Fame linebacker. Miller wears No. 58 in honor of Thomas. The legacy is being upheld in glorious fashion.

Miller is the most important defensive player on a Broncosí team that looks like a legit Super Bowl contender. If the Broncos are going to do damage in the playoffs, they need a defense that can rattle quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Matt Schaub and Ben Roethlisberger.

A dominant pass rusher is the best way to neutralize quarterbacks in todayís pass-happy NFL. Miller gives the Broncos that guy. Even when he doesnít get a sack, Miller can cause havoc. His best play in Sundayís game led to an interception by safety Jim Leonhard. Miller shed off a chip block, made his way through inside traffic, and got close enough to Rivers to force a mistake. Rivers unloaded the football early, before Miller could unload. But the presence of Miller caused Rivers to throw a pick, which was worse than taking a sack.

Miller loves to dance after sacks, which means heís gotten plenty of practice perfecting his moves. Maybe a spot on "Dancing with the Stars" is in Millerís future. At the very least, Millerís national profile is rising. Watching the Broncos isnít just about watching what Manning will do next. Itís about watching Miller.

Miller probably wonít win the MVP award. Defensive players have a hard time doing that.

However, the Broncos clearly have two MVP candidates, one on each side of the ball. We already knew how good Manning was. Now weíre finding out how good Miller is, too.

Only Jack Lambert and Lawrence Taylor have won defensive rookie of the year and Defensive player of the year in back-to-back years.

What happened to the vaunted CHI Defense. They are really regressing when they don't get the turnovers and have to play defense from behind

Von is rolling and I hope the D shows up against Baltimore. Watt will be on TV this week against NE

Von Millerís $25,000 fine raises specter of suspension

Broncos linebacker Von Miller is a candidate for the NFLís defensive player of the year award. But if heís not careful, he may soon be a candidate for a suspension as well.

The NFL has confirmed that Miller was fined $25,000 for striking Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman below the knee area last week. Miller, who was given a 15-yard penalty for that hit on Freeman, has now been fined enough times for illegal hits that he risks the NFL deciding that fines just arenít getting the message through to him, and that suspensions are next.

Among Millerís other fines: He was fined $21,000 for a hit on Cam Newton last month. He was fined $7,500 for a late hit against the Patriots in the playoffs in January. He was fined $25,000 for a hit on Mark Sanchez in November of 2011. And he was fined $15,000 for a hit on Carson Palmer in November of 2011.

Thatís five fines in Millerís last 24 games. The NFL has made clear that it will suspend repeat offenders if fines arenít getting the point across, and Miller now appears to be a prime candidate for one of those suspensions.

The good news for Miller is that when the NFL fined Ravens safety Ed Reed for his third helmet-to-helmet hit of the last three seasons, Reed won his appeal. But that doesnít mean the NFL is done handing out suspensions for repeated illegal hits. A suspension of Miller would be a huge blow to the Broncos, but if he keeps racking up fines, a suspension is coming.

4. Von Miller, OLB, Denver Broncos (12th)

Miller isnít your conventional 4-3 outside linebacker, moving into a pass rushing role in sub package defense that saw him spend only 24% of his passing snaps in coverage. However, as the 86 combined sacks, hits and hurries show, he delivers in that role, while adding a further 15 tackles for losses. You simply need to watch out for Miller on every play ó if you donít, heís likely to hurt you.

Best Performance: Week 5 at New England, +12.3

Key Stat: Missed only three tackles all year.

No 43 SLB had a chance anyway. Those teams get filled up with 3-4 OLBs and the OCCASIONAL guy like Lance Briggs that's just dominating the weak side.

By the time it's all said and done, honors teams are a bunch of apples to oranges comparisons.
