There are reports coming out of Denver, Colorado that the early stages of a pass rush are beginning to develop.
The reporters who are actually focusing on real news, rather than Tim Tebow’s next bowel movement, are stating that Denver’s second overall pick, Von Miller, is a person of interest in this ‘pass rush’ investigation. Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post reported:
There he (Miller) was in the first quarter, sacking Ryan Fitzpatrick for an 8-yard loss on second down. And there he was in the second quarter, perfecting a difficult open-field tackle on C.J. Spiller, keeping the running back from bulldozing any extra yards after the crunch of a hit.
The news may be preliminary, but fans believe that there is substance to these reports. One fan, who requested to remain anonymous, gave his thoughts when asked about the suspected pass rush.
“I was totally confused when Von Miller sacked that Bills quarterback,” said the anonymous fan. “I thought that rookies weren’t allowed to sack the quarterback or make plays at all. I mean, after watching Aaron Maybin, Vernon Gholston, Larry English, and Robert Ayers in their rookie years, I thought it was just a rule, like carrying pads or something. Why else would they play that way?”
Other reporters are chiming in about the on-going pass rush investigation as well and they claim that Elvis Dumervil is the primary suspect. Jeff Legwold, also of the Denver Post, stated:
He (Dumervil) blew up one running play so quickly that he almost took the handoff. He had quarterback hits and continued to show why he might be the centerpiece of Denver’s defense.
Most fans were ecstatic to see number ninety-two on the field again and some were down right shocked. Johnathan Manfredjinsinjin of Leesburg, Virginia was one of these shocked fans.
“I shouted an immense amount of obscenities, in joy of course, when I saw Dumervil take the field this preseason. I thought he was let go in free agency after his 17 sack season,” the awestruck Manfredjinsinjin said. “That’s what happened to Trevor Pryce, Bertland Berry, and Reggie Hayward. It’s just what I’m used to.”
It is clear that this potential pass rush has fans excited about the upcoming season. Which is a nice change of pace from last season’s big question of Josh McDaniels hoody color choice.
