Von ( doom ) Miller Takes Home Second DPOW Award

11 posts in this topic

On the strength of a three-sack performance against the San Diego Chargers, linebacker Von Miller took home his second career Defensive Player of the Week Award for Week 11.

In addition to sacking Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers three times last Sunday, he forced two fumbles and registered six tackles — two of which were for a loss.

Miller’s three sacks led the AFC for the week, and he is now the only AFC player to record at least three sacks and two forced fumbles in a game in 2012.

He currently ranks second in the NFL and first in the AFC with 13 sacks while leading the league with 23 tackles for a loss.

Yay, Von!

23 TFL is by far the best among linebackers (L. David and A. Smith both have 13). He is also tied for first in forced fumbles (4), second for QB hits (17). No sophomore slump for Von.

Aldon Smith had a monday night record 5.5 sacks + a FF v. a 7-2 Bears club and Miller gets it? Love me some Von Miller but Smith is coming off the best defensive performance the NFL has seen in a long, long time. Perhaps it is because he is overshadowed by the other big-names on that defense...

understand your point, Millewr had tons of pressure on Rivers too, I dont know what else smith did as didnt watch game

Maybe was also because against A sub QB , or as u say that entire D is lights out , I was hoping that would be where Peyton went , think easier to win SB there but then again he wouldnt have freedom he likes in running offense and hes not a big city person, he has a good life, that in the end is what counts

Other than TFL stats I mentioned above, here is what IOAFM says:

By PFF's accounting, Von has 61 pressures (13 sacks, 11 hits, 37 hurries) in 663 snaps (9.2%), while Smith has 43 pressures (15 sacks, 9 hits, 19 hurries) in 618 snaps 7.0%). It's not exactly a close call. The site's grades say the same thing - they have Von at +60.1, and Smith at +14.6.

1) this is a defensive player of the week award, not DPOY. No argument can be made that Miller had a better game than Smith.

2) stats are useless. There are too many variables outside the players' control that effect the stats, which are often times difficult to measure in the first place (i.e. how close does one have to be for a pressure?). For example, Miller plays vs worse teams than Smith (AFC West is by far worst division, nfc is much better than afc), Smith competes with other studs on that D for plays, etc. Stickin with the niners, pat willis and justin smith are good examples of players with massive impacts who have lesser stats than infefior players who play the same position...heck Andrew Luc has a QBR below 80 but he is the best rookie Qb I have ever seen, even with RG3 and RW posting QBRs of 90+...

Von Miller is amazing.....total stud....potential HOFer at this rate....but lets not pretend he is way better than Aldon SMith. Watching both these guys play, it is clear both are probably the best at their position right now

1) Sure. I'm more reacting at Smith's attitude toward Von Miller. I thought, dude, sack is just one thing of many.

2) Stats are not useless but it's misleading a lot of the times. I don't think Denver's schedule has been easier than the Niner's thus far. It is now beginning to really ease. My feeling is that Denver has played against better O lines than the Niiners has so far too. But obviously I don't watch or follow all NFL teams, so this is just my impression, which is often wrong admittedly. One thing I agree with you, though, is Andrew Luck is the best rookie QB I've ever seen.

    • There's no one here who has pumped up the new coaches more than me --- and that especially includes Joe Philbin.       I get how important all the new coaches are to the teams success,   and of course that includes Philbin.   But we have far more questions than we do answers.       And since we've never won more than 11 games in the last 4 years and all of our division rivals are far improved from where they've been in the last 4 years,  then I simply don't think it's reasonable to predict.   Now.....   here's something I want to make clear......   I'M NOT SAYING WINNING 13 GAMES CAN'T HAPPEN.     I'M SAYING IT'S HIGHLY, HIGHLY UNLIKELY.   So, is winning 13 games possible?     Yes.     But the odds of it happening are incredibly small.   I haven't seen a predicting anywhere that has the Colts winning 11 games.    Or 12 games.    Or 13 games.   That makes your prediction one of a fan.    From a fan's perspective it makes sense.     But it doesn't add up to people who cover football for a living.    Who follow this stuff far more than you and I do.     There's no logic to it.      None at all.        That's why I called this fan-boy.   By the way,  some of my comments that you've responded to,  were not meant for you.     That were meant for another poster who jumped into the conversation.       Just wanted to clarify.   The fun starts next week!      Will be interesting to actually see the Colts on the field.   Good luck to all of us!!        
    • I'd like to see the text messages released. She also has to prove he was there on whatever night she claims the attack(s) happened.
    • Indeed.  I'll put up a few snippets from the NFL/NFLPA handbook on the Substance Abuse Policy.  These are relevant as Bell was suspended 2 games last year for MJ possession and DUI, and thus he's officially in the Intervention Program--           So they get tested once in the off season, and never during the season... IF, a big if... you have never tested positive or been placed in the NFL Drug Intervention Program.  It's so easy to NOT get caught it isn't even funny.  But get busted with it, or test positive, then you are now in the program and can be tested multiple times anytime of the year for it.  This is why I have little sympathy for those who do get caught.  Tons of smarter Vets know how to 'play the game' and get to do what they want without repercussions...  Most_Of_The_Time.  They pass their one time off season test and Voila... home free until next year.  These are the only substances tested for in the off season (all year for Drug Intervention players)     This was to be a huge payday year for Bell too.  Now, between this and the MCL/PCL rehab mystery, I have no idea what his future holds.   Oh he missed "Many" tests!  LOL and SMH...   http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2016/07/23/report-leveon-bell-missed-several-drug-tests/  
    • Up to this point on the oline I have been happy if the kids remember to get their hands up for blocking but this year we are going to start working on hand position, so a new drill we are going to do is called clapping the wrist.  It is a quick drill that will get their hands in proper position with thumbs up, it gets their elbows in tight to the body and to make the calpping noise you have to get your hands up their fast.   We'll see how it works.
