Heard Andy Benoit talk on their podcast like J.J. Watt is one of the greatest defensive players ever. Honest to goodness, Watt is indeed a great player, but saying he’s one of the greatest ever is too soon.
We at BSP don’t believe Watt is even the best defensive player right now. Neither is Khalil Mack, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year. Luke Kuechly is great but not the very best. BSP believes the greatest defensive player in the NFL, and of the decade, is Von Miller. It’s easy: Miller had his best games in the biggest games of his career. Miller can play the run, rush the passer and even cover. Von Miller is a true competitor. Von Miller holds a pass rush conference and invites the best pass rushers in the league, including players in his own division. That’s confidence.Von Miller is the guy that drives that entire Denver defense; the guy who makes them a terror to throw against. Without Miller, they are good but not one of the best defenses ever. Without Watt, Houston was one of the best defenses in the league and nearly took down New England in last year’s playoffs.
He’s the only player on that entire team that I can stand even a little bit. Give credit where credit is due.
