Meet Denver Broncos LB Von Miller: Chicken Philosopher


On the field, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is one of the best players at his position. Off the field, Miller is known for his impressive style, but now you can add another label to the man who made glasses cool again. Apparently Miller raises chickens, so when he was talking to the media Miller was asked the question that everyone wants to know the answer to — What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Why would someone ask that question? Well, minicamps are all that is going on right now so reporters have to find a story somewhere.

Luckily for whoever asked the question, Miller was prepared with an answer and showed off his new side of chicken philosopher.

“For me, I think it’d have to be the chicken,” Miller said in quotes obtained by Pro Football Talk. “You need something to protect the eggs.  You just can’t have eggs there.  I’m sure there are a lot of theories out there of where stuff comes from.  For me, I think it was some form of a chicken or something that had to lay the egg first.  It just depends upon how you look at it.  Is the glass half full or half empty?  For me, it just makes sense for a chicken to come first.”

Mind. Blown.

Not only is Miller a star NFL player, his poultry-related knowledge is unparalleled in the league.
