Default Can Miller be like Gronk?

Trying to come to terms with the way last night finished for the Steelers. The defense is obviously the main concern, but this piece moved my thoughts to the offense. I don't necessarily agree, but .....

"It makes some sense that, needing big plays to catch New England, the Steelers looked to their receivers more often.

Sanders and Brown make for a dynamic receiver combination on the outside, and Jerricho Cotchery proved his worth with three touchdown catches against New England.

But when the game shifted from push to shove, the Patriots knew that the Steelers’ only options were to throw outside the numbers.

Increasing Miller’s presence in the passing game gives them a threat over the middle and would draw coverage away from Pittsburgh’s speedy outside threats.

Plus it gives the Steelers’ faithful more opportunities to chant HEEEEAAAATH, and we should all be more supportive of fan unity in supportive chanting
."

Here is the rest of this article

I'll take Miller over that douchebag, pretty boy, partying asshat any day of the week. Miller is a complete TE and he's unselfish. Right now I still don't think he's anywhere near 100% and that's why we're not seeing the big plays typical from Heath.

Miller would never act a fool like this.

I like Miller.

He is well rounded, consistent and reliable.

That being said we NEED another big, dominant TE.

This is as big a priority as LT in my opinion.

Not at 32 years old. Call Gronk names, make fun of him all you want, he smoked our ass.

As long as Miller has to spend alot of the passing plays staying in to help the OT's block on passing plays, he will not equal or better Gronk.

Gronk is a receiver playing Tight End. Heath Miller has the ability to make some big time plays, but I don't think he's 100% just yet.

Anyone can play like Gonk if they're up against a Defense that allows him enough time to fire up a Hibachi and make himself a snack while he's waiting for the ball to arrive.
