Q: Hey Adam, how much will Denver miss Von Miller this postseason? That defense has really struggled getting pressure without him. -- Jason (Colorado)

A: The defense has struggled getting pressure with and without him, Jason. Listen, this defense would be better off if Miller were in the lineup and on the field, no question. But Miller was not playing at his usual stellar level this year; he just was not the same player as he was his first two seasons in the league. Plus, in the first six games of the season that Miller missed for his suspension, Denver did go 6-0. His loss isn’t one that this team hasn’t -- and can’t -- overcome.

Q: There seem to be a lot of coaches on the hot seat. Do you think Leslie Frazier, Jim Schwartz or Mike Munchak will keep their jobs? What about Greg Schiano? -- Tammy (Arizona)
