From the day he set foot on an NFL field, Von Miller has been a dominating force. But his conduct off the field has always slowed him down. That is, until last year. Over the course of the past year, Miller has undergone an impressive transformation of character – from a guy who was one strike away from being out of the league to a guy who is now being considered as one of, if...

Ware: Despite youth, o-line playing like veterans

The overwhelming narrative throughout Denver Broncos training camp was how an inexperienced offensive line – one that throughout camp sported three scheduled starters who had never taken an NFL snap – was going to not only run a complex zone-blocking defense, but also protect one of the most-valuable (and least mobile) assets in the league, Peyton Manning. And although Broncos...

San Diego Chargers offensive line preview

The 2014 San Diego Chargers’ offensive line was a severe weakness for the team. In fact, they were so ineffective that pro football focus rated them as the second worst offensive line in the NFL last season. They failed to produce clear running lanes, got called for too many penalties and failed to protect Phillip Rivers on a consistent basis. Of course, it didn’t help that they...
