Default Re: Derek Newton has tough test in Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil

Broncos pass rush specialist Elvis Dumervil inventing new moves as he draws more attention
Quote:
His mom recently called and asked him very matter-of-factly, Why dont you have any sacks yet?

So maybe this was a little bigger deal than he figured.

Dumervil insists his sackless start has more to do with double teams than anything else. Blockers have simply figured out a way to neutralize his patented moves, the ones that led to a league-leading 17 sacks in 2009.

Now, its up to Dumervil to counter. Hes watching tape of sack specialists from around the league, looking for new maneuvers he can incorporate into his pass rush.

Its a chess match, said Dumervil, whose Broncos (1-1) will host Houston (2-0) on Sunday. Its all about studying film, knowing whats coming and when its coming. Ive got to get a step ahead of them.
This game, indeed, will prove to be a great chess match involving coaches and players on both sides of the field. When it's all said and done, the team which can protect their King (Schaub/Manning) the best can expect to call out "checkmate" at the end of the game Sunday.
