Von Miller: I want to win for DeMarcus, Peyton and Wade

Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller wants to win the Super Bowl on Sunday for himself, of course, but there are also three people in the locker room in particular he’d like to help get a ring.

Miller said today that his fellow outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware, quarterback Peyton Manning and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips are the three people he’s most motivated to win for.

“I want to do it for DeMarcus and Peyton and Coach Phillips,” Miller said at Super Bowl Opening Night.

Ware has been in the NFL for 11 years, and this is his first Super Bowl. Manning is expected to retire after the season, and it would be fitting to see him ride off into the sunset with a Super Bowl title. Phillips has coached in the NFL for 40 years and doesn’t have a ring.

Miller said there’s a lot of camaraderie in the Broncos’ locker room, and so players feel like they’re playing for each other.

“It’s like a college atmosphere in our locker room,” Miller said. “We spend a lot of time together and I think that’s the glue that makes things go.”

    They are a bunch of knuckleheads, and if Carolina gets out to a big lead in the second half, it will all come out.

    … and I want to see DEN lose for the same reasons (and a couple more).

    How about Tim Tebow because if it wasn’t for Tebow Peyton wouldn’t be there stating a fact not an opinion FACTS

    The Panthers are BEASTING!!!!!

    On Sunday, the Broncos are going to be so shell-shocked that they are are going to have that ‘Beam me up, Scotty’ look on their faces at HALFTIME!!

    No ring for Von!
    No ring for DeWare!
    No ring for Wade!
    No 2nd ring for Payton!

    (I am not even a Carolina fan but the writing has been on the wall for the Panthers all season.)

    They are already writing the story. The panthers should win, but probably won’t. The fix is in. Vegas will win big.

    This is the guy who got caught red handed trying to cheat a urine test. He shouldn’t even be in the NFL at this point.

    Classy group of men he listed there. I can’t help but say I too am rooting for the Broncos for that reason.

    It would be nice to see Von Miller stop Cam Newton from dancing.

    May the best team win!

    Broncs winning is the preferred storyline.

    Make it so!

    Hey BroncosCheatedTheSalaryCap, that was 20 years ago. Let it go. Hopefully your team can win a SB sometime soon so you can stop being so bitter.
