Post Matt Spaeth

I know this kid was hurt earlier in the season, but I havent seen him on any injury reports recently, unless I missed it. . He has 5 receptions, 3 were for TD's. I love Heath, but Spaeth is a great go to guy also. Anyone know why we haven't played him since his injury? Just curious.
Thanks,
Matt Spaeth

.....just kidding about being Spaeth, lol.

If you watch the latest games, we do not use are TE's as much as we did the first part of the season.

I've seen him whiff on a couple blocks. He'll be good, but he is still a rookie. Once he's up to speed, it will be like when the Raiders had Casper and Christensen at the same time. Both guys were total players who could catch, run, and block with the best of them.

I've noticed it too, and not in a good way. We were having such success earlier on throwing to the TE. Do you think that because this was a relatively new thing for the Steelers to do, our early opponents weren't prepared for the change, but later opponents have adapted and are now covering the TEs better? Or has there been some shift in offensive philosophy that I missed somewhere along the line?

I think that it all comes back to the O-line. If you've noticed, any time Ben has time he has been effective.

Neither Spaeth nor Millers can block to save their lives.

Wow. Mistakes by both have not gone unnoticed but they are far from having to "save their lives."

Heath Miller's potential is our gain. Period.

Okay that might have been harsh how's this.... their blocking skills suck. Don't get me wrong I love Miller and the jury is still out on spaeth but that's a fact that can't be disputed.
