Funny thing about Von trailing Thomas in the total sacks through 25 games is that had he not gotten injured last season he very well could have had a few more added to that total

It's going to be tough to move up from 32nd overall to the top 10.

I think he'll make a run at the single season sack record. 22.5 isnt that far off the way he is playing. And when the D is playing with the lead, it almost isnt fair

Considering the teams we're going against, 2-3 a game is definitely reasonable. By the way he was playing, it felt like he should've had about 6 today before they started dedicating half their team to blocking him. He could definitely explode for a game of the year type performance and really get the single season record within reach.

I wonder what the record is for forced negative yards, I imagine Von is on pace with 22 (?) TFL, and 13 sacks.

Of course, hands down - he has the stats AND he's coming on stronger as the season goes on. However he is missing that huge popular highlight reel that the voters love called the 'huge INT or FF return TD'. One long 40+ yarder and he has it in the bag - or two 20 yarders.

Von is really easy to get behind as well. Humble yet carefree. Plus he is a Bronco from the start. While I love having Manning, I almost feel like we're buying success rather than earning and developing it... I'm sure I will get over it when we're playing in the Superbowl!

Miller is putting himself in the conversation for Defensive Player of the Year.

He now has eight sacks over the past four weeks, and joined Reggie White, Jevon Kearse and Dwight Freeney as only the fourth player to record 11 or more sacks in his first two seasons.

The Broncos earned it by taking the risk on Manning and honouring his competitiveness by building the best damn team possible around him













except when they resigned Joe Mays

i was young when ray lewis came into the league .

is it fair to say that von could be the ray lewis of his generation.

i realise the leadership quality or w.e but in the aspect of talent and domination is the way von is trending comparable to Lewis?

i dont want to let this time pass before me with out me realising how incredible it is.

when im 50 years old ill tell my grand childen about someone named von Miller

Beadles has been decent. Walton was playing his best ball before injury. Ayers has been coming on recently.

For the first time this season (that I've seen) a news outlet outside of Denver has finally mentioned Miller in the DPOY category. In fact it's the front story on NFL.com right now!!

If Von continues to play like he has been, this may be one of the greatest seasons ever by a NFL Defensive player.

Can't wait to see what he does against Cassel and that KC line.

San Diego had three players trying to slow down Miller on a few plays yesterday

KC might have to put four players on him.

Von has superior stats to every defensive player in the game and he does it at big moments. He was a big part of why the broncos held a 3rd down defensive statistic that hasn't been done for 10 years, yet all we hear about are the Texans and Bears defense and that could be why Miller may not win (Broncos D despite the numbers doesn't get enough respect). He is good enough to pull so far ahead statistically that voters won't have a choice though.

The thing is Von is making an above average defense great just like Manning is making an above average offense great.

Both players are raising all boats as they say.

That sounds like DPOY & OPOY to me and maybe MVP too

Von and Co. had Rivers so scared, the dude could barely complete a pass. I can't imagine the fear that Matt Cassel is going through.

Broncos blitzers could go unblocked. Every Bronco Defender is eyeing Cassel hungrily right now, as if he was a rib roast on the table. That can't be good for Matt "Can't play dead in a Western" Cassel.
