    Yeah its looking pretty good, hopefully he can get a couple more next sunday!
    The chiefs o_line must be pretty stout becuz I don't remember Denver recording any sacks against them a few weeks ago.

      It's cause they ran mostly and when they did pass it was short quick passes

        Broncos are the NFL's only team to have multiple players w/11+sacks in Von Miller (17.5) and Elvis Dumervil (11.0).

            I think KC's pass blocking skills weren't as stout as their QB's self preservation instinct. While the D won't rack up sack totals that way, it still helps us a lot as the opposing passer is just focusing on getting the ball out of his hand and not necessarily on making the best play.

              QB sacks are fine. I just want to see some consistent pressure on the QB. A lot of times our sacks come in the closing minutes of games when it's already decided. Last week against cleveland Weeden had a lot of time in the pocket, whereas, a guy like Brady would've had a field day. I will rather consistent pressure over a couple of sacks in a game. I do feel the main problem is not enough push up the middle.

                What many seem to be missing in this, is that Dumervil is double teamed almost every pass play. Von isn't.

                It isn't that Miller doesn't create the kind of respect Elvis does, it is in the scheme. Teams know where Dumervil is going to be from his end spot making it easier to assign blocking his way. With Von, they don't know because we rush him from 4 or 5 different spots, often with stunts which in effect make it seem like he is coming from even more different places. This creates havoc with pass blocking schemes.

                This is sound defensive planning. More blockers are occupied with 1 elite rusher (Doom) and the other line rushers, leaving fewer blockers to deal with the unknown (Miller).

                The net effect is that it leaves Miller one on one more often, and occasionally even unblocked at the expense of Elvis facing more blocking.

                Ye he is still in double digit sacks, this speaks volumes about Doom

                Now if we could just generate more consistent pressure from the middle of the line.....We would go from being a very good defense, to a truly dominant one. Because then, offenses would have to start rotating their blocking away from Dumervil leaving him with single blocking on occasion.....now THAT would make for some fun times....2 elite rushers facing one on one blocking.....it would be a serious nightmare for QB's and OC's....

                  I love that looping rip move. Putting him on the QB's throwing hand side has been a good idea.

                    Pressure up the middle is becoming a defensive necessity in the NFL. A lot of blocking schemes allow edge rushers to just scoot right on by the QB, creating a cushy pocket for the elite passers. Forcing them to throw on the move is key: induces errors; wears him out a little bit; heightens nerves. Once flushed the edge guys can also chase most QB's down. Short of Kaepernick, Wilson, and RGIII of course.

                    Side note: Is it just me, or does the NFC seem far more dangerous than the AFC? Those three QB's I just listed - while not exactly more than rookies playing over their heads at this point - present problems that traditional defensive schemes don't really have good answers for.

                        There are sixty minutes of game clock during which the football players are playing football. Besides 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Quarters, there are no other designated "time" periods.

                            That's extragametime. The previous exchange was concerning intragametime.

                              11 sacks is pretty good for someone that gets held on nearly every single play with hardly any flags.
