Von Miller praises Vic Fangio after first official team workoutRon Chenoy-USA TODAY SportsIf anyone can gauge a new head coach early, it would be Von Miller. New Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio will be Miller’s fourth head coach in nine seasons. So far, so good, as Fangio has already impressed after the teams first official workout of the 2019 season.For Von Miller, the biggest thing for him was to see if Fangio was going to be the same guy he met and saw at the introductory presser three months ago.“I was here for the press conference, and same guy that everybody saw in the press conference was the same guy that we saw this morning,” Miller said. “That’s a compliment. You don’t want this guy to be in the press conference, then he gets in front of the team and is this guy, then when you’re one-on-one with him he’s this guy. It’s not the case with Coach Vic, and I knew that from all the players that he’s coached that I’m familiar with. I knew he was that type of guy, and he was definitely that today.”On MHR Live on Tuesday night, I thought this could be a dig at Vance Joseph, but it could just be Miller letting everyone know that what you see with Fangio is what they got. The other takeaway from Von’s initial impression of Fangio is what kind of things will be stressed throughout the offseason. Fangio cares about technique and assignment, which I translated as ‘smart football’ at every level. “It was just technique, assignment and really just keep everything simple—but it’s easier said than done,” Miller said. “Coach Fangio, he’s all about technique, assignment, intensity and effort, and I like that. He’s an outside linebacker guru, and he’s up next with me.”It sounds like every detail is going to be coached and practiced until the little things aren’t even a focus anymore. This clearly goes back to the ‘death by inches’ mantra of Fangio’s initial presser and this Broncos fan couldn’t be happier to hear that. Kareem Hunt did everything but score on his best run against the Bengals, spinning away from a pair of would-be tacklers and hurdling another before getting dragged down short of the goal line.He made sure to cap another incredible run against Denver with a score.This time, Hunt grabbed a shovel pass from Patrick Mahomes, darted through the arm-tackles of two Denver defenders and then leaped over cornerback Will Parks. Justin Simmons leaped onto his back, and Hunt proceeded to drag him the rest of the way for the Chiefs' clinching touchdown on Sunday.Kansas City went on to beat the Broncos 30-23 to complete the season sweep ."That might have been the best run of the season anywhere," said Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who had a TD catch of his own. "It makes you want to block for him every time he takes the rock."The Chiefs (7-1) got production from just about everyone on Sunday, though.Mahomes threw for 303 yard and four touchdowns, Sammy Watkins had 107 yards and two scores, and Tyreek Hill had three catches for 70 yards before leaving late with a minor groin injury."I don't know how many plays they've got Emmanuel Sanders Jersey ," Broncos linebacker Von Miller said. "Whatever plays they've got, they've got counters off that. So, they can show you the same play 10 times, run it 10 times, and then on the 11th time switch it up. They're extremely well coached."As for the Broncos, well, their coaching has been increasingly called into question.They committed 10 penalties for 83 yards, and that doesn't count several that were offsetting or declined. Many of them wiped out big gains by undrafted rookie Phillip Lindsay, who still managed to run for 95 yards and a touchdown in his first career start.The Broncos (3-5) also had two late turnovers that spoiled any chance of a comeback."Without those penalties, without being pushed back, we never get in those third-and-longs, and we control the game," Broncos coach Vance Joseph said. "They never stopped us until we got those penalties. Again, we'll go back and look at the tape and see whether those penalties are good or bad, but again it's over. We can't go back and play the game over again."No, the Chiefs get to look ahead to a trip to Cleveland while the Broncos have to begin preparing for a home date with Houston. Here are five takeaways heading into the next week:INJURY UPDATEHill appeared to tweak his groin early in the game, but he continued to play until the fourth quarter. That's when the Chiefs' wide receiver joined Frank Zombo (hamstring) and fellow LB Anthony Hitchens (ribs) in the trainer's room.The Broncos lost LB Brandon Marshall (knee) and WR Isaiah McKenzie (hip) during the game.DIVISION DOMINANCEAlong with winning their seventh straight over the Broncos, the Chiefs won for the 19th time in their last 21 games against the AFC West. They are 3-0 in the division this year as they seek back-to-back-to-back titles for the first time in franchise history.BRONCOS BRIGHT SPOTDenver played without rookie running back Royce Freeman, who was out with an ankle injury. Lindsay answered with a big performance, though, and Devontae Booker had 78 yards rushing on just nine carries as the Broncos averaged 6.3 per attempt against the Chiefs defense."I knew Book was going to play well because he's just been waiting for his chance," Joseph said. "I knew Lindsey was going to play well. I knew we could block them up front."UNDER PRESSUREThe Chiefs produced five sacks and six tackles for loss, despite playing without $100 million pass rusher Justin Houston. Dee Ford had three of the sacks, including one that produced a fumble that Kansas City recovered. Breeland Speaks and Chris Jones had the others.O-LINE HOLDS UPThe Chiefs were missing C Mitch Morse (concussion) and two injured offensive guards, yet they managed to hold up fairly well. Austin Reiter made his second NFL start and first for the Chiefs at center while Andrew Wylie held down the right guard spot."Me and Wylie were talking about that, when we get in the huddle and see Tyreek and we see all those guys in there, Kareem, we're like, 'Wow, there's a lot of weapons on this offense," Reiter said. "It's really fun to play with those guys."
