Ware, Miller 'Want to Be the Best'

Posted Jun 10, 2014

DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller have set a lofty goal for their pass-rushing production in 2014.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos' goals for 2014 are clear.

As a team, the group wants to be the one hoisting the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season.

For pass rushers DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller, their goal is to be a crucial part of that journey.

"At the end of the day, when you look at all the guys in the league, you want to be the best at your position and on the best defense in the league," Ware said. "Me and Von talk all the time about, 'How many sacks do you want to get this year?' He threw a number out there, and I said, 'At the end of the day, a number's only a result that people can judge.' I said, 'But why not be the tandem out there that at the end of the day we can say was the tandem that was best in the league ever?'"

"That's what you want. You want something bigger than that, that lasts forever."

Ware said the two won't put a number on how many sacks they want to accumulate in 2014 -- especially since ideally their pressure on the quarterback can create turnovers that won't make it to that stat sheet as a sack.

But that doesn't mean they aren't thinking big for their production this season.

"Me and Von, between two guys, we want to have as many sacks as one team," Ware said. "So that's a big goal that me and him have. There's not really a number — at the end of this year, we're just going to say, 'Hey, let's see where we've measured up.'"
