Man these guys are good lol
Right now its Von Miller and it is not even close.a
Both are great players though.
It's no secret. Doom benefits from Von more than Von benefits from him.

Both guys are badass. But I gotta go homer with Von Miller. Reason? The better overall player. Von Miller kills Smith in advanced statistics. PFF has Von Miller at +60.1, Aldon Smith has a measly +14.1 in comparison. Don't get me wrong, I think Smith is a fantastic player, but Von Miller is a once in a lifetime talent.
I have no problem with people liking Von better. What is stupid is the, "and it's not even close" comments.
The question I pose is this, and I think this is what separates them.
Von Miller can be the cornerstone, the building block of a defense. He's a franchise-caliber defensive player. Can the same be said for Aldon at this point? Like I said in a previous post, I will not lessen what Aldon has done on the field in his year and a half, but is he a complimentary piece to the whole or is he the piece that fuels the machine? I think the answer is fairly obvious that he is a complimentary piece while Von is THAT Denver defense.
Future Baltimore Raven
Pretty easy to see who the better player has been.
Even in light of Aldon's incredible performance, Miller takes home DPOW award.
Definitely Von and I really don't think it's close. Note that it's no slight on Aldon Smith as he is already very good, and should become great.
Von, on the other hand, is already firmly in the discussion for DPOY and looks to like he could very well be a once in a generation type OLB.
I am a huge fan of von Miller (homer maybe) but they are all great players (incorporating Watts from a recent post).
von Miller is a monster and does exactly what the Broncos need him to do.
