The LA Rams Ain’t Playing Fair On Defense| Von Miller Trade Might Be The Missing Link To Rams Super Bowl

John Elway (Team GM and Executive VP of Football Operations) and the Denver Broncos have practically wasted the past three to four years of linebacker Von Miller’s elite prime with shoddy roster moves — especially at the QB position — where the front office had no succession plan for a rapidly declining Peyton Manning.

It’s been a Mile High quarterback wasteland for the franchise ever since, but Miller’s game is still official like a name brand.

During his tenure, Miller led a Broncos defense that always ranked around the top 10 to 15 units in the league.

The 32-year-old Miller has wanted out for a while, and as late as Saturday the team was still deciding whether or not they wanted to trade the greatest pass rusher in franchise history.

Now Miller is a member of the Los Angeles Rams. He is another veteran piece to fall in the Broncos’ rebuild.

The Denver Broncos haven’t been a contender since an aging Manning was the QB and helped guide a very average offense to their last Super Bowl win in 2015. It was also the last time the Broncos would advance to the big game.

Prior to that season, and ever since he was drafted by the Broncos, edge rusher Von Miller has been an elite defender.

Peyton Manning got the headlines, but Miller and the defense really were the driving force behind the Super Bowl run.

Miller’s Super Bowl MVP (2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles) is proof as he dominated and stifled Cam Newton and the Panthers.

Miller showcased an array of skills, from pass rushing to stopping the run. He’s also a real thumper at setting the edge in the run game, to dropping into coverage and intercepting passes as he did against Tom Brady in that season’s AFC Championship Game.

Getting Von Miller takes the Rams’ defense to the next level. Click here to find out how the trade also helps a rebuilding Denver Broncos team.
