Von Miller solely based on his dance routine.

If Aldon breaks the sack record (which I think he will), him.

I think it has to be Miller or Watt (no offense to Aldon, but his sack numbers are misleading and seems to have Justin Smith contributing majorly to his numbers).

I think Von is a more complete player and I'm a Denver fan, so him. (IMO he's the best at rushing the passer in the league)

Watt. He gets the sacks, swats down everything within arms reach, and is still solid against the run. He may not have quite the gaudy statistics as some of the other sackmeisters...but those batted balls...

I'd consider Forced Fumbles more impressive than swats. Von has much more of those.

3-4 ends are typically not the guys putting up gaudy stats. The fact that Watt is putting up those sack numbers as a 3-4 end is insane.

They don't run a 3-4 they run a 5-2 http://www.houstontexans.com/news/ar...c-ee09ee32910a

And they blitz more than anyone in the league.

3 defensive linemen and 2 linebackers who play on the line. Sounds like a 3-4 with another name to it.

I think Watt wins it because of his great play all around and he gets more attention with Texans rise to a powerhouse

Tillman DPOY hopes died out ,, he and his team have faded in 2nd half of season

Watt doesn't rush off the edge very much though, does he?

Thought he played mainly 3 (between G and T) and 5 (squared up with the T) techniques, which are the traditional responsibilities of a 3-4 end.

You mean Justin steals his sacks.

Their blitz is a 4 man rush.

You are splitting hairs.

3-4 and 5-2 both use three down linemen with two OLBs as the primary pass rushers.

Watt plays an inside role, not as an edge rusher.

It's the same thing. Have you ever seen where OLBs line up in a 3-4?
