Wow...what a great game last night. I know it was rough for a couple quarters and hard to imagine we could pull one out of the hat like that. Much props to Tim Tebow for doing what he does best, and I love that Merrill (seriously a dude named Merrill) Hodge has been MIA on ESPN. What is he getting fitted for a new tie that actually fits? Seriously what a d-bag...anyway back to my first post ever. Is Von Miller human?
I cannot believe this guy. I think I saw a stat line and he finished with 10 tkls, 3 QB hits, 3 tfl and 1.5 sacks. He was all over the field. There were a couple of plays where I saw him work down the line, keeping his feet clean and making a tackle on the RB on the opposite side of the field from where he started. He also made another tackle on the side lines where he was way out of the play to start but still made the tackle. He has really been fun to watch, and I am so glad he is a Bronco.
I also think that any one who says he is a better fir for the 3-4 is off base. I think you need a more well rounded LB to play 4-3 and Von is just that. IS there room for improvement? Sure, but he did everything last night. I am stoked for the Broncos and this new tough Defense we have. I am also stoked for this amazing talent we picked up. Thank goodness McD wasn't still drafting last year as we would have ended up with a versatile blocking TE/LS/back up SS with the number 2 overall pick. Who would have been traded later on for a CFA.
I am excited to watch this kid grow! I think right now he is one of the best OLB in the game, and should get consideration for All Pro. I would take him over Orakpo, Matthews, etc.
One last thing, why wasn't he credited for a sack on the bad snap?
