Listen: Jj Watt, Von Miller, National Football League discussed on Get Up!
"Don't be great. Others. Glad that I was on the same teams are defense. He is von Miller. His ninety eight sacks of the most in Broncos franchise history. He passed Simon Fletcher week fifteen this past season against the Brown is ninety eight sacks are also the most in the NFL since he led the league ahead of JJ watt. Enter the league, I should say he has more than anybody since he got to the NFL ahead of JJ. Watt is ninety eight JJ has ninety two von also second in disrupted dropbacks behind JJ watt and the Broncos defense nineteen hundred defensively when he is and isn't on the field. They held opponents to a fifty four QBR when he's on winning was off the number is eighty one he is quite simply one of the best players and one of the best guys in the sport and has evidence of that he joins us this morning as a nominee for the two thousand eighteen Walter Payton man of the euro award presented by nationwide. It is simply the most prestigious award an NFL player can win. And so I almost feel bad von that we have to start with this. But I have to get something out of the way a few weeks ago you. Were on this program here on get up. And you were talking about how you believe that you could play quarterback. I want everyone to hear this quickly before we get to anything else for me. I like to watch the quarterback I've always felt like quarterback a heart. I feel like I can throw it pretty good. You know, I'd get after the quarterback aside the quarterback. So for me. I'm a quarterback. I like to watch the throwing motion three step drop, you know, to read. I'm quarterback got a game is about the quarterback. So as it was are you telling me you could have been a quarterback von Miller. I'm telling you that my very first position in football was the quarterback in a play quarterback for like two or three years. And then I gained a little bit of weight, and I guess a Muslim got some toughness, and there goes my quarterback position right there. I heard you. And you said that to me, and I told everyone von Miller could be a quarterback. And then we watch this and the Pro Bowl skills challenge passing competition. I would you break this down here. I just had a date. I'm not making any excuses for any of that. That's all bad. But you definitely throwing the ball way better than okay. Don't be mad at us. It's not nice. So if you're mad at what he's idea idea, but we got to give you a hard time a little bit. And we'll give you another chance to redeem yourself from a passing standpoint. But one of the players that we do want to get your perspective on this game because you are an elite pass rusher in the NFL is Aaron Donald from your perspective, what makes him so dominant. When you watch him. MR perspective, you can't really dealt with team. You know, he's an inside. He's going to center guard, but he can easily get out there to tackle in rush. They began to so it really voice the double team, and he's not built like any other detox that has ever been in the National Football League. He looks more like a running back. He moves like running back in. He just gives guards in in centers hill. Always feel to me. There were some guys that all the other NFL players marvel at its he that guy now on the defensive side of the ball that all the other defensive players watch end marvel at. I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan of Donald. And I'm a fan of the game. You know, first and foremost JJ was game as well. I'm fan of the game in Arizona. He's been hot for a long time. And he still has the flame. You have had experienced trying to do this. How would you look to stop the patriots offense? I think it all starts with pressure up the middle in tight coverage in the Rams are built for that. They have su- in in the middle and Marcus Peters, a key to leave on outside. And the key has been there. Akiva is gonna give the guys the energy that they need to be ready to go. And that's. I guess I guess that's my pick of golden.."
