DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller plan on sacking as much as entire teams in 2014

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

"You want something bigger than (a number), that lasts forever."

While many Broncos fans are salivating over the thought of DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller rushing the passer in tandem 2014, the two men comprising the duo are thirsting to get after opposing quarterbacks just as much.

"Between two guys, we want as many sacks as any one team," Ware said at Broncos minicamp Tuesday. "So that's a big goal that me and him have."

At the end of the day, a number's only a result that people can judge... You want something bigger than that, that lasts forever." DeMarcus Ware

That is no small feat. In 2013, each team in the NFL had at least 30 sacks. In 2012, each team had at least 20.

But something about the combination of Ware and Miller has me believing they can do it. It has me believing these two will become bigger than the sum of their parts - and that their sack totals will reflect that as well.

"At the end of the day, when you look at all the guys in the league, you want to be the best at your position and on the best defense in the league," said Ware.

"We talk - me and Von talk all the time about, ‘How many sacks do you want to get this year?' He threw a number out there, and I said, ‘At the end of the day, a number's only a result that people can judge.' I said, ‘But why not be the tandem out there that at the end of the day we can say the tandem that was best in the league ever.' That's the name - me and Von - that's what you want. You want something bigger than that, that lasts forever."
