What's with all the label-swapping in here - not from the team or media, it seems like just here. Yesterday I'm assured Von Miller is actually a DE on passing downs, and today I'm told Elvis is actually a 3-4 linebacker. Marius, your "Under" description lumps Von Miller in with the "fatbodies," if you believe the others who say he''s a DE on passing downs.

Let's keep it simple ... LB Von steps up across from an OT on some passing downs, and DE Elvis swings out a bit wider on some passing downs.
Sometimes he played with his hand in the dirt on a 3-4.... sometimes he played standing up in the 4-3.

Doom rushes whether it's a 3-4 or a 4-3.

The Broncos base 4-3 under:



Von Miller is the "S" and Dumervil is the "W"

He's on the line, but notice he's on the weak-side opposite Von Miller, in essentially the same position. Von will drop back into coverage more and Doom rushes more, but they're actually fairly similar roles the way the Broncos use them.

Edit: Doom is the capital W... the lower case w would be Wes Woodyard.

Because front offices look at more than just sack numbers. Which is more than can be said for 99% of the posters here.
