Cleveland interim coach Gregg Williams warned his offensive linemen this week that Von Miller anticipates the snap as well as any pass rusher in the NFL."Oh yeah Shon Coleman Jersey Stitched , you see that a lot, man. That's what he gets guys (on). He uses that to his advantage because a lot of guys panic as far as getting back," said Browns right tackle Chris Hubbard, who will try to keep the Broncos' star linebacker off quarterback Baker Mayfield this weekend.The Browns (5-7-1) meet the Broncos (6-7) in a rare Saturday night matchup of teams technically still alive in the AFC playoff hunt.Miller's timing can sometimes be a tad off, like it was last weekend in his foiled return to Levi's Stadium , where his two strip sacks of Cam Newton led the Broncos past the Panthers in Super Bowl 50.Three times he was fooled by third-string quarterback Nick Mullens' hard count, twice on San Francisco's final possession of the first half, a 72-yard touchdown drive aided by five defensive penalties that gave the 49ers an insurmountable 20-point halftime lead.Miller was summoned to the sideline for a tongue-lashing from his coach after his third infraction, and he was just as hard on himself after the Broncos' damaging 20-14 loss, saying his trio of flags was "just flat-out ridiculous."This week, head coach Vance Joseph and defensive coordinator Joe Woods reiterated that Miller is too good to risk jumping offsides by trying to time the snap instead of just bursting across the line when the center snaps the ball."At some point you've just got to go on the ball," Woods said. "For him to get that many offsides, it was unnecessary."Miller, however, said that timing his jump is a big part of his game and the underlying reason he's been able to:鈥擳ie Simon Fletcher's franchise record of 103陆 sacks Youth Nate Orchard Jersey , counting the playoffs.鈥擟ollect 13陆 sacks this season, three behind league leader Aaron Donald.鈥擜nd team up with Bradley Chubb to form the league's most productive pass-rushing duo."I mean, yeah, I was upset about it but at the end of the day, if I've got 97 (regular season) sacks, probably 80 of them came off of getting a great jump," Miller said Wednesday. "So, yeah, I jumped offsides. But quarterbacks throw interceptions, too. It's not like you tell them not to throw the ball down the field no more. It's just part of the game."That's just something that I've worked on and I guessed wrong. Like I said after the game, I'm a gambling man. I like to gamble. Sometimes I gamble big and win ... and sometimes I don't."With a career-best eight-game sack streak going, Miller is loath to hold back even if his coaches want him to rein in his gambling ways."I've been on a great streak of really being in tune with the snap count and really being in tune with the offense for about five, six weeks now. So, I'm not going to change it up," Miller said.Asked how often he guesses right for every time he guesses wrong Nate Orchard Jersey Stitched , Miller cracked, "I've got, what, five offsides? And I've got, what, 13 sacks? So, I mean, that's a pretty good ratio if you ask me."Miller said he might have been too eager last weekend because he was one sack from tying Fletcher's franchise record and returning to the site of his Super Bowl MVP performance.Given his flags last week, Miller's sure Mayfield will try to draw him offsides, too."I'm sure they'll come in and give us a lot of hard counts. We're playing at home, so I don't know how effective that'll be," Miller said. "I mean, I'm a gambler, too, so I'm not going to do the exact same thing that I did last week. Of course Desmond Harrison Jersey Stitched , I'm going to change it up. But that's part of my game. I never change it too much."Hubbard said the crowd noise at Mile High Stadium will certainly give Miller an edge."That crowd is always loud and the stadium is always rocking. So, he has that advantage," Hubbard said. "But my advantage is to get off the ball fast."Miller's, too. Which rules are changing for the 2019 NFL season?"On Tuesday, there were a boatload of rule proposals, bylaws, and resolutions that were being voted on at the NFL’s Annual League Meeting. The results are in, so let’s take a look at a summary of what is new:7 rule proposals passed6 bylaws passes2 resolutions passed7 NFL Rule Changes That Passed1. Kickoff Rule Changes: This was basically a formality. All of the rule changes that went into effect last season for kickoffs (on a one-year trial run) were made permanent with this vote.2. Blindslide Blocks: The rulebook now specifically talks about blindside blocks, and how a 15-yard penalty will be enforced for them. Here are some examples of illegal blocks:3. Double Foul Enforcement: Language was tweaked in the rulebook for when possession changes and there are double fouls. For example, imagine an interception. If I understand correctly, under the old rules, two fouls after the interception would offset the penalties and place the ball at where the interception occurred. Under the new rule, the offsetting penalty would occur wherever the first foul took place. It’s a little ambiguous, though.4. Field Goal Language: The language for where the ball would be spotted after a missed or blocked field goal was simplified.5. Penalty Enforcement After TD: I like this new rule. Previously, if there was a personal foul penalty on the defense when the offense scored a touchdown Youth E.J. Gaines Jersey , the offense would be forced to apply the penalty to the kickoff. Now, they can do that, or they can have the penalty applied to the extra point (to make it a shorter kick) or a two-point try (one-yard line).6. Pass Interference Can be Reviewed: This is the big one! Offensive or defensive pass interference plays can now be reviewed, whether the officials called an infraction or not. This will be implemented on a one-year trial, and is a big win for the Saints. It can have its advantages. But, could we see adverse effects? The competition committee says this play in the Super Bowl should’ve been pass interference. I say “play on” was the right call.And, what about Hail Mary plays? Because we know everyone grabs on that play, but it’s kind of an unwritten rule that it’s a no-call.In addition, point after tries are now subject to automatic replay reviews, and scoring plays and turnovers negated by a foul.7. Disqualification Formality: I still don’t understand the language, but officials can now disqualify players for “football” plays as opposed to only being able to disqualify them for “non-football plays.”We will get to the bylaw changes and resolution change in another article.
