Which one has more sacks again? Not saying Miller isn't a beast, but the pass rush specialist is a half a sack behind the guy with the handicap of not playing a traditional pass rush position.
J.J. Watt is changing the game. He is likely redefining how linemen play this game in the future. That's Babe Ruth-ish, Wilt Chamberlain-ish.
