Von Miller: This will be my best year yet

Broncos linebacker Von Miller was appearing on “Dancing With the Stars” and hoping to reach agreement with the Broncos instead of taking part in the team’s offseason program this time last year, although the time away from the team didn’t seem to slow him down much on the field.

Miller had 13.5 sacks and three forced fumbles in another strong season off the edge in the Denver defense. It wasn’t quite enough to make him the choice as the defensive player of the year as Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack got one more vote to take the award, but it seemed like the kind of performance the Broncos would happily take every year.

On Tuesday, Miller said that he expects to give the Broncos even more this time around. He said having a full offseason with the team and the desire to erase the frustrations from the way things ended last year will bring the best version of Miller to the stage.

“I feel like this Von coming up is going to be the best Von I’ve put forth,” Miller said, via Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post.

The Broncos stayed in house by promoting Joe Woods to defensive coordinator with Wade Phillips moving on to the Rams, so there aren’t likely to be major changes to the way the defense operates in 2017. That should keep Miller well-positioned to remain the same disruptive force he’s been for years at the very least.

    JJ may be a slightly better player overall but Von miller is the most clutch defensive player in the NFL and that’s coming from a pats fan.

    Von Miller: This will be my best year yet

    And it still won’t get your team to .500.

    Without Dware on the other side, he will not be dominant. He needs another dominant pass rusher to dominate. Look at the years he played with Dummerville and Ware and the years he didn’t.

    Dancing with the Stars – Check
    Referring to self in third person – Check

    All the elements required to NOT produce his best year.

    It won’t matter. Wade Phillips is gone, and their offense is lousy at best.

    Best year yet?

    He must have found a new PED dealer with ultra cheap junk.

    Dont count your chickens before they hatch…fyi Mack did not have any help in the CB position which is critical for the pass rush and still managed to get some luv.

    He’ll probably say he was misquoted and Von = one

    “I feel like this Von coming up is going to be the best Von I’ve put forth,”

    He referred to himself in the 3rd person, that’s no big deal for a player of his stature. So enough already about Von loving him some Von, it’s time for all of you to tell to Von how you love you some Von.

    wow.. wow.. he was referring to his dancing skill on Dancing with the stars

  12. joetoronto says: Apr 11, 2017 7:30 PM

    He’s not half the man Mack is.
