Broncos LB Von Miller advocating for major changes in offseason
Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller is sick of not competing the way he’s used to — and he’s open to just about anything to make it stop.
Miller became accustomed to winning during his first five seasons in the league, winning the AFC West in each of those years, making two Super Bowls and winning one. However, in the past two seasons, the Broncos have stumbled to a combined 14-17 record and he can no longer hold his tongue.
“If you look at the leadership that we have here — two times not going to the playoffs is just not going to ride,” Miller said according to Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post. “There are going to be some drastic changes this offseason, and I’m all for it. I want to get back in the mode to being competitive and winning.”
Miller didn’t go on to elaborate on what sort of changes he expected to see and made no suggestions, but those sorts of comments make it relatively clear that he’s in favor of sweeping changes. And the Broncos absolutely have to do something after starting the season 3-1 before losing nine of their next 11 games.
Maybe that means Broncos coach Vance Joseph’s tenure ends after one year, or a massive overhaul of the coaching staff takes place. Perhaps that even means some restructuring of the front office.
No matter what it takes, Miller is ready for the losing to stop.
