Default TE Game

I know about the OL speculation and all, but were is Heath Miller and Matt Spaeth been.
Miller is so so underrated every season and he can block and def. get open. Spaeth had a couple nice TD's last season that proved himself, but there is no TE game to be seen OL good or not.
I Think for the Steelers to gain more confidence on offense they need to get the ball to Miller over the middle or on short and goal line plays to open things up. What do you think?

Default Re: TE Game

my ideal pass breakdown looks like this:

40% to ward (posession)
35% to holmes (big plays)
20% to miller
5% to m moore and nate washington

Great points, pride. Arians is saving all the good stuff for the post season. Shhh....

Really though, we really need to gameplan better. Spread things out a little, both WRs wide. Get more guys involved, you know, spread the ball around. Show some imagination, we've got a ton of weapons.

Think outside the box, Arians.

I think Washington has really stepped up this season, more deserving than 5% of the passes his way.

I think the main reason we have seen limited production from the TE's is because so far this year they have had to stay on the line to help protect Ben. When the line starts to play better we will see Heath more involved in the passing game.

I stopped hoping for the Steelers to use the TE more about 3 years after Eric Green was here. It's pointless to even waste brain cells thinking about it because it's not gonna happen.

Miller with 5/45yds and a TD is good enough for me, relatively speaking. He had some big catches
