Default Heath Miller Deserves Pro Bowl Selection

Steelers: Heath Miller Deserves Pro Bowl Selection

Dec 3rd, 2012 by Lori Paddock



The tight end is the quintessential multi-purpose player – the Swiss army knife of the offense. Heath Miller really embodies that. He can block, he opens up the field with his routes and he is sure-handed. I bet he can open a bottle of wine like a pro too. He proved again during Sunday night’s game against the Ravens that he can be counted on when they really need someone to make a play. This guy needs to go to the Pro Bowl if the Steelers don’t make it to the Super Bowl. I’m not saying that because I think the Pro Bowl is an amazing game full of competition. I’m saying that because the selection means recognition from fans and peers. Miller goes about what he does with little flash but with absolute determination and effectiveness.

So, I’d like to personally lobby for readers to vote HEEEAAAATTTHHHHH to the Pro Bowl. Here’s the link to cast your votes: http://www.nfl.com/probowl/ballot

Need some convincing? Let’s look at the stats from NFL.com:

Unofficially (because this week’s stats weren’t totaled yet and I did the math) here are Miller’s stats through Week 13:

56 Receptions
613 Yards
10.9 Average
7 TDs

I looked at Rob Gronkowski’s (of the New England Patriots) numbers after 10 games:

53 Receptions
748 Yards
14.1 Average
10 TDs

Gronk was on track for an outstanding year before he broke his forearm. Seems to me that Miller ranks right up there near Gronk. Miller probably prefers if players like Gronk get the focus while he quietly, but efficiently goes about his business.

Another interesting fact about Miller: According to Steelers.com, going into the Raven’s game, he was the Steelers’ leading receiver ahead of Mike Wallace who had 47 receptions and Antonio Brown with 42. In my mind, Miller is in the running for team MVP. I didn’t add Sunday’s numbers into the Wallace and Brown’s totals (math isn’t my ‘thing’), but I’m willing to bet Miller retained the lead. I know Brown’s totals may be lower due to injury, but that’s the point – Miller is stepping in like teammates do. Have I convinced you yet? If not, well, what other tight end would you want to vote for?

Seriously, go vote! http://www.nfl.com/probowl/ballot

good read. What Miller does for this offense is amazing. So glad we finally decided to use him the way we should this season.

I am pretty sure he is going to get in this year. Pouncey is a shoe-in and I think the next selection would be Miller.

The Todd Haley offense has made Heath Miller the premier receiver on the Pittsburgh Steelers. He should definitely go to the Pro Bowl.

No doubt. Heath also deserves to kick BA in his balls for wasting his talent for so long.

Rob Gronkowski is going in first. Do any of the other AFC TE's have more TD's? That'll count for way more than actual performance in voting.

He definitely gets the most respect from me. The guy busts a gut on a big play. Turns around and lines up. Gets to the end zone, maybe a fist pump, and gets off the field.

No BS!!!! He does his freakin job like no ones business and he gets off the damn field. Soooo refreshing among all the high maintenance receivers out there. Including a few that have passed through in steeler uniforms.

Any doubt the best TE we've had?
