Miller believes he can get 30 sacks this season, a mark that would shatter Michael Strahan’s record of 22.5, set in 2001.
“Thirty? I think it is (attainable),” Miller said to the Broncos’ official website. “First off, you’ve got to come out – let me think about it. You’ve got to get 10 in that first month. You’ve got to get 10 your first month, which is doable. You get two-and-a-half, you get two-and-a-half the next game, two-and-a-half the next game after that. You might miss one game, but then you get two-and-a-half (the next game).
“So then you’ve got 10 in five games right there. If you get three, two, three (in a stretch), it’s definitely doable.”
Miller recorded 13.5 sacks in 16 games last season. The 28-year-old posted his career high in 2012, when he racked up 18.5 sacks.
“You’ve got to take advantage of your pass-rush opportunities,” Miller said. “If you get five open rushes, you’ve got to win all five of those rushes. Out of those five rushes, you might get two or three sacks off those. That’s the math that I have on it.
“Out of those five plays – you’ve got to get home on those plays to make it happen.”
