    In a tweet last night Miller had this to say

    Hey Von the play was over. Also, you hit Connolly from the blindside. That makes it a cheap shot. It's why you were flagged and why the Pats O-line jumped your sorry arse..

    Clearly he was a complete non factor in this game extremely frustrated. I'm sure his view was skewed of a cheap shot at this point. He needs to go back and watch again.

    I think he's right........it wasn't hard enough to be cheap. Connolly just turned around and was like 'huh?'

    He hits like a girl

    Not as bad as what Suh said after GB on Turkey Day.

    The whistle didn't blow before his hit, but his hit still wasn't legal, illegal block in the back, blindside, cheapshot, whatever you want to call it. They play wasn't dead though (at least as far as I remember), it was just the hit itself that wasn't legal.

    Funnier thing was when he tried to shove Connolly after he was paying attention, Connolly didn't budge and four OL took a handful of Bronco's into the dirt and Denver got their ass kicked in the scuffle.

    Please. The guy is a beast & will be a dominant defensive player for years.

    He'd be a great Pat.

    I agree with him, it wasn't really dirty. It was just stupid more than anything.

    didn't know that Suh and Von Miller shared the same brain. Both went to college but neither actually learned how to think.
