Von Miller Has Sights Set On 20-Sack Season 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Apr 19, 2019 12:48 pm

Von Miller has a goal of posting a 20-sack season for the Denver Broncos.

Miller also wants to break Bruce Smith\'s all-time sack record of 200. To get there, Miller knows he\'ll need one massive season.

\"I feel like I haven\'t even made it halfway yet,\" Miller said. \"I\'m going on nine [seasons]. We had Bruce Smith at our pass-rush summit and I talked to him about it a little bit. He played 20 years and averaged 10 sacks a season. That\'s right where I\'m at with it. Hopefully I can get one of those 20-sack seasons. If I can get one of those in, it\'ll put me ahead of the pace. I\'m still feeling good. I told [Bradley] Chubb today, \'I\'m old but I\'m still good. I still feel good out there. I still look good, Chubb?\' And he was like, \'Yes.\'

\"As long as I\'m still going and as long as I\'m still playing first and second down, and rushing the quarterback on third, then I\'m good. Whenever I start slipping to third down, then you know Von is on the way out. But I think that\'s a long way away for me.\"

Miller\'s career-high is 18.5 sacks.

Von has 98 sacks in 120 games played. Von sacks at a rate of 0.82 per game and has averaged 15 games per year for 8 years.
Bruce had 200 sacks in 279 games played. Bruce sacked at a rate of 0.72 per game and averaged 14.5 games per year for 19 years.

At the end of their 8th year in the NFL, Von is currently 6 sacks ahead of Bruce, but Von has played 12 more games than Bruce during that time.

After playing his 120th game in his 9th season, Bruce had more than 98 sacks - 124 games played at end of season #9 and 106 total sacks - so Von needs to get 8 sacks in the first 4 games of the season (more than double his average rate) to match the same number of sacks Bruce had accumulated playing the same number of games.

Von was talking about getting 30 a couple seasons ago.

I'd rather he just went and did it instead of talking about it..

Our QB is Flacco, none of this really matters anyway.

What am I missing here?

Isn't his sack rate 1 per game?
