Von Miller: I want to be the guy who pushes the Bills over the edge

Von Miller won a Super Bowl after being traded to the Rams in the middle of the 2021 season and there was a place for him in Los Angeles this year, but he won’t be back with the team.

Miller opted to sign with the Bills as a free agent and told reporters on Tuesday that he “wasn’t content” to ride off “into the sunset” with the NFC West team. Instead, he hopes to be the final piece of the puzzle that brings the Bills their first Lombardi Trophy.

“This is a special team, they’re right on the edge and I just wanted to be that last drop to overflow these guys,” Miller said, via Wilton Jackson of SI.com.

Adding a player of Miller’s talent to a team that has been at the top of the league for the last couple of years would usually look like enough to tip the scales in their favor, but the AFC was an arms race this offseason and the Bills will have plenty of competition to make it to Arizona next February.

  1. Isn’t getting pushed over the edge normally a bad thing? Maybe “get them to the top” would have been better.

  2. At this stage of his career he’s more likely to be a passenger in the bus rather than the one driving the Bills to their destination.
    This was a soft defence that got run over by more physical teams last year, Miller’s presence doesn’t change that. If I’m a Buffalo fan, I’d be hoping that their more recent and highly drafted defensive players step up.

  3. “When you need that extra push, over the cliff, where can you go? Nowhere. But this one goes to 11…”

  4. He’s one of the worst edge setters I’ve ever seen. Reminds me of Clay Matthews. All hype and bloated sack totals.

    You just have to wonder with the PEDs, too.

  5. Thankfully the other 3 teams in the conference will be a cakewalk. You need home field advantage.

    Translation: I’m scared. Buffalo is going to stomp us.

  7. He pushed the Patriots and the Panthers over the edge. I think for the Bills he means to push them over the top.

  8. I think he did legitimately put the Broncos and Rams over the top in their Super Bowl runs, for what it’s worth.

    He’s an athletic freak who was all over the opposing quarterbacks in big moments in big games. Maybe he can do it for another team before his time runs out.

  9. No one ever said Von was an expert with metaphors — just rushing the passer and wearing very large spectacles.
