Horse Tracks: Von Miller is looking awesome as usual

Training Camp opened yesterday for the Denver Broncos and linebacker Von Miller already looks in midseason form. The explosive edge rusher routinely blew by whoever lined up across from him.

Miller dominated team drills and he dominated one on one's as well.

One matchup that stood out to Andrew Mason was when Miller went up against the rookie and dominated him. Miller didn't do this to embarrass the young rookie, but to help him along

"I wanted to get in there and get right where I was tired. Plus, Max, I like going up against good guys. Max is going to do a lot of great stuff for us. I go out there and show him stuff. At the same time,  I go out, I want to be able to beat him. That's what we're looking for—development. I feel like Max is coming along. He's looking really good all the way from OTAs to now. I think the sky is the limit for him, and I feel good."

Miller is now two-years removed from his off the field issues and ACL tear. He's looking explosive and the best he has looked since his 2012 season where he put up 18.5 sacks. I expect Miller to repeat or even better those numbers this season. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is going to get the best out of him.

Denver Broncos football is back:

I feel the same exact way Von!
