    I’m not saying it is true. I just wouldn’t be surprised if knowing he has to overcome flagrant holds that don’t get flagged makes it difficult to be as mentally prepared as he could be.

    Von Miller: The Myth of Double-Teams

    In another thread there was a comment, the often repeated defense of Von Miller on being double-teamed. Another forum member successfully disproved the double-team myth last season.

    Von Miller wasn’t consistently double-teamed and chipped vs Raiders on Monday night. In pass protection the Raiders only double-teamed Von twice. Looking at the tape, a defensive coordinator should no longer plan help against Von (unless they have a really bad RT). The TE had an easy time blocking Von one on one.

    Even without pass plays designed for quick release, it didn’t look like Von would have been a factor. His first step looked slow and effort was weak. It could be the lack of reps in preseason, but he looks out of shape and/or disinterested. He was smacked by the fullback on one play.

    We’ve seen stretches of games where Von hasn’t shown up. He looked and played less than elite on Monday night. He was quite mediocre if not below average as an edge rusher. He also looked fairly weak on run defense.

    Anyway, the main point is that the constant double-teams are a myth.
