Broncos LB Shaun Phillips Says He's Not Stressed About Replacing Von Miller
Denver Broncos outside linebacker Shaun Phillips has large shoes to fill.
With star outside linebacker Von Miller suspended for the first six games for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy, it's on Phillips to provide a consisistent pass rush for the AFC West club.
If Phillips is worried about whether he's up to the task, he's not showing any signs of stress.
"I've been in the league 10 years," Phillips told the Denver Post. "If I've got pressure now, something's wrong."
Phillips has recorded 69 1/2 career sacks and have a versatile role.
"Whether I'm playing defensive end, linebacker, it really doesn't matter," Phillips said. "Football is football, and at the end of the day you tackle the guy with the ball. We'll be OK. It's not just about the sacks. It's about the coverage, and it's about the sacks. It's about stopping the run, because we all know that you can't get sacks without stopping the run.
"Right now, our philosophy is stopping the run and the sacks are going to come; we've got guys who can get after it a little bit. Unfortunately, we lose our best pass rusher for a couple of games (actually six), but it is what it is. You have hiccups in life, but you bounce back from them."
