Buzzmaster (3:15 PM)
Von's running a little late but he'll be here in a couple more minutes.
Buzzmaster (3:36 PM)
We have Von!
Jordan (Casper, Wy)
Do you ever feel sorry for the opposing quarterback?
Von Miller (3:36 PM)
No. Not at all.
What's the biggest diffrence between Tebow and Manning in the lockeroom?
Von Miller (3:37 PM)
There isn't a big difference in the locker room. Both guys are team guys and I was happy to have both of them on as teammates.
Who is the DMVP this year?
Von Miller (3:38 PM)
I'm hoping it will be me but I have a lot of great competition right now. There are a lot of guys out there playing at a high level. There is a lot of football to be played but I hope that I'm named Defensive MVP at the end of the season.

Now holding the #2 seed in the Afc, saying that we win out, who would you rather play, patriotsat home or texans on the road?
Von Miller (3:39 PM)
Patriots at home but it really doesn't matter to me who we play. We have to and we will be prepared for any team.
Tommy (Madison, WI)
What are the aspects that the Broncos' defense can still improve?
Von Miller (3:40 PM)
I think we are playing pretty well but there are always things we can improve on.
Michael Maher (Marysville, Wa)
what do you contribute the fact, that just in your second year of playing, that you are in the discussion of defensive player of the year and how did you work on the "mental errors" that you had last season
Von Miller (3:41 PM)
It has a lot to do with my teammates and position coach. I think I've limited my mental errors this season and that helps a lot too. It also helps that the team is playing well, that way I can go out and play my game.
Von.. big orange/blue fan here.. great to see the win yesterday in person. My son wants to know when you started wearing glasses and if you ever saw wearing them as a hurdle.
Von Miller (3:43 PM)
I've been wearing glasses since the fifth grade. They really haven't been a problem for me. The only thing is that I keep falling asleep with them on. But I do enjoy wearing them.
Who is the best player on your D that no one is talking about?
Von Miller (3:44 PM)
No. 25, Chris Harris. He's made a lot of big time plays for us.
Marc (San Diego, CA)
What is your favorite move to put on an offensive lineman? The spin move, bullrush? And why?
Von Miller (3:44 PM)
I like the spin move because I think it throws guys off. You can't really do it too many times because guys will get used to it but it's a great change up move.
Huge fan here, except this week when you play my brownies. Who do you think is better, Damontre Moore or Jarvis Jones? (I think A&M bias is perfectly acceptable lol)
Von Miller (3:45 PM)
I think they play two different games. Moore is more of a traditional player in the 3-4 defense and Jones plays on the outside in a 3-4 defensive scheme. They are both really good at what they do but they have two totally different games.
What has been your favorite play you made this year?
Von Miller (3:46 PM)
I would say my interception from the Tampa Bay game.
Vonn, any thoughts on the best nickname for you, or the D as a whole?
Von Miller (3:47 PM)
I haven't really thought too much about that. That's for the fans. If you play good enough, they will find one for you.
mike (new york)
what was your favorite team and player growing up
Von Miller (3:49 PM)
I really liked the Dallas Cowboys. I loved watching the triplets of Michael Irvin, Emmitt Smith and Troy Aikman. I also really liked Deion Sanders too.
Von Miller (3:51 PM)
Thanks for all the support. It has been a great year so far for not only me but my team as well and I hope it continues. It was great chatting with you guys. See you on Sunday!!!
