    Great pick by the Broncos.
    Barring injury, he's going to be a Pro Bowler for most of his career.
    Seems to be a great guy too.

    It really was. I knew he would be a good pass rusher but he is doing better vs the run than I thought he would at this level.

    Great young player

    Yes he's played spectacular, but there was really no way of getting him. I'm more than happy with Tyron Smith who like Miller is having a terrific rookie season and barring injury will be a pro bowler the remainder of his career.

    Fellow rookie Aldon Smith is doing pretty well too.

    I agree. I'm more than happy with Tyron. Dallas had to address the OL and getting him was a move in the right direction and his play has been outstanding and should only improve considering he is still too young to even buy beer. :laugh2:

    If Miller was on the Cowboys people would be upset with his 3 sacks and saying he was a wasted draft pick and we should've went offensive line.

    He was off the board by the time we picked, it's really a moot point.

    I can't imagine what our oline would look like if we hadn't drafted Tyron Smith. Von Miller has played well but I think most fans around these parts would expect four sacks a game between Von Miller and Ware. As it stands a lot around here think Ware gets his sacks in garbage time and never makes big plays.

    I think he is poised to succeed Ware as the best 3-4 OLB eventually

    Maybe 3 sacks in one game?

    Clay Matthews would like to have a word with you.

    Von Miller's rookie season > Clay Matthews' rookie season

    Von Miller's rookie season > Clay Matthews' current season


    Von is straight up NASTY... He has so many moves in his arsenal already. One of the few guys from the '11 draft class that I'd take over Tyron.

    Von Miller desperately wanted the Cowboys to trade up to get him. He is a huge Cowboy fan.

    I know. I'm saying I don't believe he'd have 9 sacks if he was playing alongside Ware. He'd be closer to Spencers sack total than he is Ware's if he played in this system. I just threw 3 out there because I just assumed that Spencer was around that title. There is no way we could get away with pass rushing both of our OLB's all game long. No way. Von Miller is a beast. But there is a reason why teams don't have two dominant pass rushing linebackers on their team. Spencer compliments Ware.

    Clay Matthews is more hype than substance, much like Troy Polamalu. Troy although is a very good to great player, he is not all that either, since his bad plays are never high lighted.

    Von Miller has the physical skills to be next Demarcus Ware. He has his speed and quickness. He is not as big as Demarcus.

    But one can only know after few years. There are lot of flash in pans. Who ever thought, the original "Freak" Javon Kearse wont end up being HOF type of player after his career ended? The great ones have logevity and sustained Greatness.

    Demarcus if he gets 20 Sacks this year, will be only play in NFL history to ever do that, in two different seasons, since Sacks started being counted.

    Clay Matthews is not even in same zip code as Demarcus Ware is and will never be either. He is a very good player no doubt, but is not the physical freak Demarcus is, and Von Miller is only guy who might get there, if he is healthy enough and keeps improving. His quickness is amazing much like Ware.

    Ware would have little to nothing to do with Miller's sack numbers.

    Millers looks/plays a lot like Derrick Thomas (Chiefs) did.
