Broncos star Von Miller vents ‘frustration’ over losing in Denver
Von Miller is frustrated. Not with his goose egg in the sacks column, the goose egg in the wins one. After two weeks, the outside linebacker’s Denver Broncos are 0-2.
He’s not happy about that, considering that the Broncos “got a great team,” according to him. Said Miller on Thursday, via USA Today’s Jon Heath:
“We’ve got a great team. We’ve got great players. I just want to win. I feel like everything comes with wins. It’s just frustrating knowing what we’ve got in the locker room, what we’ve got upstairs and everything that we put into it and not be able to win. I feel like that’s where the frustration comes from.”
“We just need to break through, as Miller said. Luckily, he notes the team is practicing well for their upcoming game against the Packers in Green Bay.
“We’ve been practicing really, really well this week and I’m excited about going to Green Bay and playing a good team,” said Miller.
The Broncos have received their fair share of criticism for their winless start under the Vic Fangio area; as the leader of the team, Miller hasn’t avoided that. Fangio says he needs to ignore the outside noise.
“I’m sure he lets you guys and everybody else and himself get into his head a little bit, but I’ve talked to him about that. Hopefully he listens to me more than the thousands of others.”
Miller’s defense will have a tough task on Sunday in shutting down Aaron Rodgers. However, to get their first win, the Broncos may want to see more improvement from a stagnant Joe Flacco-led offense rather than a defense that, under Miller, has historically done a good job of bouncing back.
