We saw tonight what we've been hoping and praying for, to see Heath Miller used to his potential in the passing game. On Sunday evening against the Patriots, he proved to be a killer against Bill Belichick's early blitz packages.

Normally, Miller will get his 3-4 catches a game for around 50 yds. or so, a Touchdown to boot. That's all well and good but the fans have been screaming, hoping beyond hope that we'd see him used in the same way that guys like Gronkowski and Gates are used. Tonight, Bruce Arians and Ben Roethlisberger finally heard our cries.

The Patriots were sending a lot of pressure at Ben right from the outset of the game. They wanted to test the Steelers beaten and battered offensive line and try to set the tone on the early. Normally that philosophy works pretty well against the much maligned, although improving, Steelers offensive line. However on Sunday evening, the Steelers found the perfect weapon to beat the blitz. Heath Miller would be that guy and then some. Every time the Patriots came with a blitz, Ben dumped off the ball to Heath and the Steelers were able to move the chains. Miller finished with 7 catches for 85 yds., leading the team in receiving. Although he didn't score a touchdown his presence was absolutely key in the victory.

Heath had a sweet 1st qtr. Was glad to see him getting those catches early in the game. It was our time to do to Brady and the pats what they had done to us last year. It was like the roles were reversed. Wicked. But sweet.

I was getting alittle worried that they were going to the well alittle too often and it might come back to bite them. At the same time though he was open so often and it was keeping Ben from getting killed so why not use it! Either way I was just glad to see them finally getting him the ball more often. The crowd was loving chanting HEAAATTTHHH so often.

Heath is a beast! Wes Saunders twitted before the game ESPN says the Cheaters have the best TE's in the NFL then he said we'll see about that:lol: he didn't make any catches but he blocked his @$$ off and Heath tore it up all day blocking and catching:tt02:

This is the recipe for success for the Steelers, using Heath Miller is an absolute must. While we have 3 good WR's on offense, each one capable of a big play at any time, Heath is a cog that must be used in the Steelers machine.

There is no more reliable threat in the flat or QB rollouts than Heath is for this team.

And the BBRRAADDYYY chant near the end of the game.

Is that what it was? My side of the stadium was saying Brady sucks.
