A few months after the Broncos signed DeMarcus Ware, the veteran defensive end said he and linebacker Von Miller aimed to be the league best sack tandem ever.
want to have as many sacks as one team, Ware said in June. and Von talk all the time about it. He threw a number out there, and I said, not be the tandem that can say it was the best in the league ever. That what you want.
The competition is still on. The pair have already combined for seven sacks (four from Miller, three from Ware) through the first four games of the season. But, as Ware said after practice Thursday, the two are now fighting each other to pressure the opposing quarterback even in practice.
“Actually we are in a race, Ware said. starts with practice. We always talk about how many pressures we can get in practice, how many tomahawks, how many times we can knock the ball out. And (Thursday) is one of those big days. It’s a third down day for us. And we’ll know in meetings who got to the quarterback the most. But it carries over into the game. But yeah, it is a race to the quarterback when we’re out there playing.”
