Default Re: Heath Miller Deserves Pro Bowl Selection


Since 1969 when the Steelers first decided to name and honor its Most Valuable Player, never has the award gone to a tight end. That streak could end next week.

Miller, who’s third on the Steelers’ all-time receptions list (405), has been the team's most consistent player this year. He leads the team with 68 catches. He and Mike Wallace are tied for the team lead with eight touchdowns apiece. Miller ranks first with 43 catches that have resulted in a first down. He’s not fumbled the ball once this year. And he’s one of the NFL’s best blocking tight ends.

A first-round pick in 2005, he’s having the best season of his career.

Certainly, there’s no one on defense worthy of team MVP consideration.

Offensively, an argument can be made for Ben Roethlisberger, who’s sixth in the NFL with a 98.1 passer rating. But the guess here is the Miller will be chosen MVP by a landslide vote of his teammates.
