Thanks to Chase Stuart for pointing out on Twitter this excellent piece from a Denver Broncos blog outlining the way the Broncos are using Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller this year. The suggestion here is that Dumervil's personal sack totals are down because his speed rushes are meant to effect the offense's blocking schemes, which frees things up for Miller as well as the other linemen.
By the way, we're always looking to post links to good content like this in Extra Points, whether it is from team-specific blogs or newspaper articles. When you see something good on a smaller team blog that you think should be shared with the FO readership at large, please send us the link at mailbag-at-footballoutsiders.com. Those smaller blogs deserve attention when they do good stuff.
