Default PASS MORE TO MILLER !

Heath has proved a worthy reciever..I'd like to see more passes over the middle to BIG HEATH MILLER....I think it could cut down on INT'S...Parker out of the backfield hasn't been bad either!

I agree, since lately big ben has been pass happy, he should chuck a few to Miller. it would seriously take pressure off of ward and company.

It's seems Miller is having his rookie season this year.

What I guess about Heath is that he has a stable mind. Stable minds become somewhat less coherent in a less stable environment. To pretend that the ship is even keeled is a falsehood.

Yes pass more to Miller. Alot more. But he needs to play better too. Many do.

I think Cowher was/probably still is a little wary of trusting the O-Line to cover Ben on a consistent basis so he is kept in as a blocker rather than a receiver.

He does have excellent hands, and a decent turn of pace and other intangibles that make him a legitimate threat - it would be good for Ben to have a safety valve instead of forcing the 40 yard bomb.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

True...

However, I think releasing him after a 4 count is fine. two or three other DL's have already broken through by then anyway sadly!

Im sure Miller did something similar on sunday - just broke away and found a soft spot.

Funnily enough (or not so funny) I think had Ben managed to avoid the ridiculous amount of injuries he has suffered this year Miller would have been unleashed as a regular weapon in the Pittsburgh offense this year.

Cowher has probably erred on the side of caution to stop Ben getting hammered too many times.

The thing is, Ben doesnt like throwing the ball away - so an extra receiving threat would probably have been more beneficial than an extra blocker anyway.

Your probably right. that is another reason why I like Willie in the backfield instead of a big back. He can come out of the backfield and with that speed, be a 4th or 5th reciever. Kinda tough when you line up only two wide, then run Miller and Wille and end up running four recievers.
