If Denver Broncos star outside linebacker Von Miller has seen the future, things look promising in Denver.
Miller sent out the above tweet early Tuesday morning after learning that his cousin, Jeremiah, a recent victim of a serious automobile accident, emerged Monday from a coma. Excited by the news, Miller took to Twitter, letting the world know his plans for the 2013-2014 NFL season.
It is usually alarming when a player guarantees a trip to the Super Bowl—or a win!—but this case may be a little different. The Broncos were already primed to go into the 2013 season looking to bounce back from a divisional loss to the Baltimore Ravens, motivated to not repeat their playoff woes next season.
Now the team, especially Miller, has more motivation to win—for a cause. Does it add pressure? Definitely. But so did Ray Lewis‘ “Last Ride” speech to the Ravens last fall.
