Sport Von Miller’s comments to Teddy Bridgewater raise some eyebrows
Broncos’ offense being ‘good enough’ is not going to be good enough...eventually
Ryan Edwards, Benjamin Allbright and Tim Jenkins give props to the Broncos’ offense and Teddy Bridgewater’s play thus far but discuss what has to improve for Broncos to beat the better teams.It’s a pretty good team, but it’s not as good as it could be, nor as good as it’s going to need to be to actually compete with the top-tier teams in the league.
knows the importance of a dependable quarterback when it comes to the Denver Broncos’ success. The All-Pro linebacker played with Peyton Manning during the years when the Broncos were among the best teams in the NFL, winning a Super Bowl in 2015. He also knows that ever since Manning retired, the Broncos have struggled to find a consistent leader at the quarterback spot and haven’t returned to the playoffs since.

Von Miller praises Teddy Bridgewater’s leadership after Broncos’ Week One win
Von Miller may be the most accomplished player on the Broncos, but he’s happy to have Teddy Bridgewater by his side as a team leader.

Miller also had a strong game last week, finishing the game with three tackles and two sacks as part of a stout defensive effort. Apparently, Miller was feeling inspired by the leadership that Bridgewater instilled in the team and he told him so on the sidelines as the game was winding down.

Definitely an interesting statement from Von Miller about the post-Manning state ofQBs. Including Drew Lock, apparently. "I haven't felt that in a while…since 18 was here."

That’s a bold statement to make for Bridgewater and it carries a lot of weight coming from an elder statesman like Miller.
