  • Miller and Ware are in a race to the Quarterback

    It appears the Denver Broncos top two pass rushers have a bit of a competition between the two. Linebacker Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware are in a race with each other to get to the Quarterback. This competition goes on during games, and even during practice.

    "Actually we are in a race," Ware said. "It starts with practice. We always talk about how many pressures we can get in practice, how many tomahawks, how many times we can knock the ball out. And (Thursday) is one of those big days. It’s a third-down day for us. And we’ll know in meetings who got to the quarterback the most. But it carries over into the game. But yeah, it is a race to the quarterback when we’re out there playing."


    The race is on between these two talented pass rushers. Through four games this season Linebacker Von Miller has 4 sacks, and Defensive End DeMarcus Ware has 3 sacks. These sack numbers should continue to rise rapidly throughout the season as offenses will struggle to compensate for both of the talented pass rushers during games.

    This early success for these two pass rushers comes as no surprise. Back in June set the bar pretty high by saying that they're looking to be the best pass rushing tandem ever.

    "We want to have as many sacks as one team," Ware said in June. "Me and Von talk all the time about it. He threw a number out there, and I said, ‘Why not be the tandem that can say it was the best in the league ever.’ That’s what you want."

    Right now the two players have combined for seven total sacks, and are already ahead of a few teams in the total sack department. The two have more combined sacks then the Seahawks, Ravens, Cowboys, 49ers, Cardinals, Falcons, Raiders and the Rams(stats via NFL.com).

    While the two have been impressive thus far, Von Miller thinks the two will only get better in the coming weeks.

    "I think we haven’t been what we’re going to be," Miller said. "We just stay in the lab, keep working and the sacks will come. We just want to keep getting around the quarterback and things will happen."

    I do think the two will only get better/more disruptive in the future. First off Miller is beginning to look like the Von Miller of 2012 where he racked up 18.5 sacks. With Von getting more healthy this will open up more opportunities for Ware, and just make life for opposing quarterbacks pretty awful on Sunday's.

    Go Broncos!

        Von is winning so far which is nice to see. 6-4
        Although, In Wares defense he had a couple of strip sacks taken away

          Did you guys see the Jets OLman shove Von when he got up after sacking Geno and started dancing? Pretty funny. I can't wait for Von to get reacquainted with Brady and Rivers.

            I think you can already see brotherhood between the two already. Both want to see each other excel while having fun competition at same time.

              Well there goal was to eclipse an entire team's sack total, well good news is the Rams have a team total of 1 sack.
              What's the difference between ignorance and apathy?
              I don't know and I don't care

                I think it was a specific team that they wouldn't name.

                  If that's the case, I'd imagine that particular team has a star on its helmet.

                    Well if they are racing the Cowboys theyre in pretty good shape. Von is tied with them just by himself and with Ware they are up by 4
