    Agreed. The argument is that tackles like Donald are harder to find and add that all important ability to collapse the pocket from the inside.

    My response is simple. Miller has been the best tackling olb in football for years and is always a top run defender. He is also extremely dangerous vs the pass. Donald disrupts the line. And as important as that is he doesnt impact as many aspects of the game as Von.

    If guards are less valuable than tackles on the offensive side then the same should inherently be true for dt vs edge player.

    What I believe separates Miller from all of those guys, even historical greats like Lawrence Taylor, is his ability to play in space. He is not just the best in the box linebacker in football, hes also one of the best at dropping back into coverage.

    He's just great. No qualifiers.

    He's a better player than Lawrence Taylor.

    The national media is blowing Mack so bad.

    Von is so much damn better.
