Von Miller Tebows after sacking Ben Roethlisberger

Von Miller got two sacks on Ben Roethlisberger in the Steelers’ final possession on Sunday night, and he received plenty of attention for the way he celebrated each of them.

As seen in the images above, the second-year linebacker dropped down on one knee and “Tebowed” after recording his second sack of Denver’s 31-19 win. Miller Tebowing was likely a nod to his former teammate, Tim Tebow, who’s currently with the Jets. Miller was one of the earliest supporters of the Tebowing fad when it first began last season.

Miller also had a sack on first down when he blew past Mike Adams to wrap up Big Ben. How did he celebrate that sack? By doing the Billy “White Shoes” Johnson dance:

Von Miller questions RGIII’s toughness

Robert Griffin III is more than likely going to be the second overall pick by the Redskins in next week’s draft, but that’s not stopping Broncos linebacker Von Miller from delivering a harsh criticism of the quarterback this week.

“He can throw the ball pretty well, and he’s fast. But if you hit him enough times, he’s going to wear down,” Miller told Pro Football Weekly. “He can run and throw, but I wouldn’t put him in that same class as (Michael) Vick, Cam (Newton) or (Josh) Freeman.”

Miller is speaking from experience. As a linebacker for Texas A&M, Miller played against Griffin twice as a Big 12 rival in college. During Griffin’s freshman year, he threw for 241 yards and two TD’s in Baylor’s 41-21 victory against the Aggies. But in 2010, Miller forced Griffin to fumble on a sack during A&M’s 42-30 win over Baylor.

In Griffin’s defense, he kicked things into gear last season when Miller was already long gone for the NFL. A lot can change in a year and Miller wasn’t around for any of it. Miller did acknowledge that his comments might be rooted in some bias: “You know I can’t say anything nice about somebody from Baylor.”

Even still, this is the second time this week where Griffin has come under heat. An anonymous scout also tore into Griffin, telling the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the quarterback has “a selfish streak … He doesn’t treat anybody good.” Miller, however, went on to say he hopes Griffin can “prove me wrong.” The scout wasn’t so genial.

Von Miller Goes Tebowing, Tim Tebow Loves it (Picture)

Von Miller became the first athlete to officially support the “Tebowing” movement when he tweeted a picture of himself praying on one knee at the Broncos facility Thursday.

Tebow joked back that the jersey was too big for Miller (guess he’s a smedium guy?).

Tim also posted the word “Tebowing” along with its description, before adding “love it.”

Now that Timmy has officially endorsed Tebowing, prepare for the movement to explode more than it already has. If he manages to beat Detroit Sunday, the networks better hurry to get him on national TV. Few players can match Tebow’s popularity.
