Matt Milano defensive MVP

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

After a breakthrough campaign last season Matt Milano broke his leg and you haven't heard much about him

 

The WILL linebacker was arguably our defensive MVP and playing at a pro bowl level before the injury

 

Milano while undersized has everything you want in a WILL. He can run with TEs in man, he has good ball skills, great instincts and awareness... And he hits like he's 245 pounds. He is a heat seeking missile 

 

Besides striking gold on this late round pick I expect Milano to have a tremendous year next year and be our Defensive MVP

 

3rd year in the system and in an NFL strength and conditioning program and I think we are going to see a man possessed

 

Don't sleep on Matt Milano this year because I bet he will be wrecking gameplans

I don't disagree with your assessment of Milano, but I've heard plenty. Not quite sure where "forgotten" comes from.

I mean I'm excited for what he's going to do this year too but I mean who forgot about him? He's mentioned all the time.

But, I've read on this very board that the linebackers are suspect and only Edmunds *maybe* has a chance to be marginally mediocre someday. Meanwhile, the DL isn't even cut out to rush a JV QB. It's all true. Cause I read it here.

After we drafted Oliver I feel like it's been Oliver, Tremaine , Jerry, Micah and Poyer talk mostly as our studs

 

I really don't see much talk about Milano though I'm sure he comes up

I just saw a PFF graphic the other day that stated he only allowed a 67 passer rating on throws that went at him. That was good for the lowest rating of ANY off the ball LB in the NFL with at least 300 snaps. 

 

Impressive stuff!

The Bills' D is loaded if Oliver comes as advertised and Murphy is fully recovered from his ACL.  Excellent starters, good depth...Tremaine in his 2nd year and perhaps the best secondary in the league, top to bottom.  I loved reading recently that McD's focus for this defense is increasing the "physicality" of their play.  I want to see this defense punish opposing offenses.

 

Milano hasn't been overlooked by anyone that I've seen and he could garner Pro Bowl attention this year.

 

I know people are somewhat worried about the pass rush and lack of a true threat outside of Hughes, but I think the Bills are going rely on getting interior pressure from Oliver and also do a good bit of blitzing with the LBs and DBs.

 

There are some "ifs" with respect to everything panning out, as there always are, but this unit looks like it should be one of the league's best.

No one is sleeping on him. We all watched the defense struggle to replace him while out hurt. 

 

It’ll be good to see him back out there.

I think that would be very uncomfortable for Matt if you tried to sleep on him Buffalo716 - so I agree, don’t sleep on him.

It's all going to be about Edmunds this year. But I wouldn't want to sleep on Milano. Edmunds seems way more dreamier anyway. Watching the wind flow through his hair as he makes a tackle, MAJESTIC.

C’mon bro, it’s the offseason, and frankly I think we ALL have seen threads started that were truly a waste of time. This one is legit given the return from injury unknown for Milano. Let’s lighten up a bit.

Has he recovered from another injury since all of the other Milano off-season threads??!

I don't think anyone here has "slept" on Milano since like week 5 of his rookie year. You could see the athleticism and his fit in this defense.

No worries here about me. I won’t sleep on him. I far prefer my SleepNumber bed, thank you very much.
