He hasn't been that good.
Michael Strahan had 4 of those 14+ sack seasons in his 14 season career.

Reggie White only put up 14+ sacks in 7 of his 15 seasons.

Julius Peppers has only done it once in 10 seasons, that one time was 14.5.

Joey Porter did it once in 12 years.

James Harrison has done it once in 10.

Terrell Suggs has done it once, barely with 14.0 sacks, in 9 years.

Jared Allen has done it 4 times in his 8 year career.

See how crazy your standard is?

Breaking double digits is the mark of a sack specialist. That pushes you over a sack every other game, meaning he's a better than 50/50 bet to get one any given week.

Doom is a sack specialist on par with the majority of his peers. His he Jared Allen? No, but Miller is and Doom is still producing. That's a rare tandem to find.
