That's what the article I linked in the OP suggests that he played at his rookie year.

The more I think about this Von ditching the yoga sounds like a real bad idea.
Bikram is bs IMO because its not strenuous cardiovascularly or musculalrly it's just really ****ing hot. Stupidly so IMO.

It they want to do yoga I'd go with ashtanga which promotes fluidity 2 flexibility.

I feel like Richardson could go through stretches that would do the same or better.

That's enough out of you, effer.

Besides expecting Teebs to learn behind the starters he's backed up would be kinda like sitting Von behind Idiot Cannonball and expecting him to osmosify something special.

To help refresh your recollection, I have chosen characters that most closely approximate how you perceive us, the images you have of yourself and me.

Remembering should be simple. I'll wait right here.
hh, that link proves my point. He's not small at all for a 4-3 SOLB.

Or are you trying to claim that you totally predicted that they'd build this specific defense and position just for him before his first ever regular season game?

You're such a grade A cawk sucker, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Yup... in fact, after re-reading that post and yours that it was replying to, it's pretty clear that you're clueless.

Come on, PT ... just trying to have some fun. You can't possibly take any real offense here, with me as insecure stutter-box Chris Farley and you the smooth legend of legends, the latter-day Mozart? The enormous gap in prestige between the two almost completely undercuts the substantive advantage.

I know what it is. I do. Not sure I believe it, but I guess I'll tell you what you want to hear. As much as the belief that a detailed knowledge (or perception of knowledge) of the game proves a phallo-plethysmographical advantage, or conversely that less (or the perception of less) knowledge of the game is a sure sign of advanced Peyronie's offends me, I will tell you what you want to hear: "You know m...m...more about f...f...football than m...m...me."

There, happy?

Now mellow out, it's the off-season.

No. How many different ways can I rephrase that I dislike you?

Seriously. You've earned it.

Don't know what all the hand-wringing is all about. It is highly unlikely that he is doing anything that the coaches and Luke Richesson have approved and sanctioned. Hell, it was probably their idea.

I'm concerned for the Las Vegas economy principally 'Chicken ranches'...plus size prostitutes cost much more overhead.

With the addition of Phillips to compliment Von, and Von bulking up some, it would seem to me that there may be some plans to play Von at RDE, particularly passing downs...

Someone made a thread suggesting that, but who was it..?
Good call MED!

I hate to say it but outside of manning I don't see Denver coughing up the dough that will be needed to sign miller. They'll tag him a couple yrs & then bye-bye miller.

Depends on championship(s) won in that time and Von's current production level at that point, IMO.

John knows the value Von brings. I think Von's a Bronco for life if he remains the beast he is today. And, I'm sure he'll grow as a leader in the coming years, as well. Adding to his value.

I'm sure Miller knows his own body better then anybody and if he feels he's already fast and flexible enough, and that adding some bulk and power will help his game, who are we do challenge that.

I remember when Kobe Bryant starting hitting the weights pretty hard and you thought he might lose some of this quickness to get past defenders and all that stuff. Didn't seem to hurt his game. If you really think about it, adding muscle really doesn't make you slow. Just go look at some of those all world track stars, the sprinters. Some of those guys are really built. They got pecs, biceps all that stuff. I think Von Miller understand that he's not really going to be dropping back in coverage all that much. He's a LOS guy and a pass rusher. Adding some chest and arm mass with power isn't going to affect his quick twitch muscles. If anything, I think another reason he is doing this is not just for performance, but for durability too. He could simply feel like as the season wears on, he gets too small and feels worn down a little. This could help.
