Default Heath Miller

We all know he is a terrific talent and team player but is there any reason to believe that he will have a bigger role in the offense?

No. I doubt it.

But it will be just as critical as always.

By bigger role, I mean more consistent.

We all know Heath comes through in critical situations.

Ben is going to have open receivers all over the field this year.

Sweed is no Nate Washington and could actually prove to be a huge progression target for Ben this year. He is not being used the same as Washington was. And Ben will find him open often.

If Heath has his production cut into at all it will be because of Sweed.

But I can't forsee a situation where Heath is used even more.

Ben is throwing a LOT of passes after only 2 or 3 seconds after receiving the ball.

Heath seems to be running a lot of underneath routes and short routes... which means I think he may become an even bigger target this year. Of course, this is conjecture. But who knows?

Although, the o-line may be a tad bit better and Heath may not be called upon to pick up for the lines mediocre play.

if we were the bears who had no receivers, then i would say yes.

if we were atlanta who only had 1 wr, then i would say yes.

if he were a raven, i would say yes.

otherwise he is a great steeler who will be paid 5 mil a year to keep on doing exactly what he has been doing through 2 championship runs.

not since eric green have we tried to make the TE a big role (even then it wasnt that big)in the offense. even last year when we had issues with the offense, we didnt really use the TE as a major offensive point. with heath or matt. so, no, no real increase for Heath

Heath will have a break out year. Its all quiet now so no one will expect it. But then again he always comes thru in the clutch.
