Former Super Bowl Champions Comment on Von Miller’s Trade by the Rams.
Three retired NFL players with a combined Super Bowl win total of five…
Following the blockbuster deal that sent Von Miller to L.A. on Monday, November 1, all three players turned national analysts had passionate reactions for the Los Angeles Rams.
On the morning of Tuesday, November 2, three former Super Bowl winners, Jeff Saturday, Keyshawn Johnson, and Shannon Sharpe, broke down the transfer and expressed their personal perspectives about Miller’s departure to Los Angeles. Here’s what all three of them had to say about it:
OL Gets a New Perspective on Saturday
While protecting Peyton Manning and anchoring the Indianapolis Colts’ offensive line at center, Saturday won the 2007 Super Bowl.
Saturday was asked on ESPN2’s “Get Up” how he would feel if he had to game plan for both Miller and Donald as an offensive lineman.
Saturday said plainly, “It’s a nightmare.”
Saturday then used words to describe how the offense’s meeting room would be if they were facing a Rams defense that already had Aaron Donald and Leonard Floyd, but had now added Miller.
“Every offensive install meeting on Monday starts with the question, ‘How do we protect the quarterback?'” Saturday was mentioned. “Listen, it’s hard enough with two (rushers), but it’s even worse with three.” And when I say that, I mean that they can create mismatches by pairing Donald and Miller, Donald and Leonard Floyd, and so on. They’ll spend the entire day exploiting the mismatch once they identify it.”

Johnson believes the Rams’ defensive coordinator is in good hands.
Johnson won the 2003 Super Bowl in San Diego with Warren Sapp, Derrick Brooks, and John Lynch as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, so he knows a thing or two about playing on a championship team with a loaded defense.
Johnson enjoyed the maneuver, which he made with Jason Williams and Max Kellerman on his show “Keyshawn, J-Will and Max.”
“There’s no doubt in my mind that he (Miller) can assist,” Johnson remarked. “When it comes to the Rams defense, I’ve always stated that Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey are two brand names. Aside from that, they required assistance.”
And that’s where Miller’s presence helps the Rams’ top pass rusher, OLB Leonard Floyd, during the team’s 7-1 start,… Nokia News – Quick Recap
