    Hi there,

    What can be expected of Miller down the stretch? It seems to me he's been having limited success in a potent passing offense...

    His production is decresing because he is no longer Carr's safety valve. That would now be Domanick Davis.

    Miller is deffinately not getting the ball thrown his way enough , part of that has to do with less playing time now that Mark Bruener is in the fold . Part of it is the play calling .
    The TE going across the middle is normally covered by an LB or Safety .... not many LB's can run w/ Miller and Safeties arent big enough to cover him effectively in single coverage . Use of the TE running the post or a crossing route will give the Safety something other than A.J. to consider in coverage packages , also helps in Play Action, which is pretty much Non-existant in the Texans scheme . With a TE like Miller and a WR like A.J. play action should be a staple on the Texan's offense . Either DC isnt very adept in hiding the ball or Palmer just doesnt have a clue . Those are the only reasons i can figure we dont see P/A.
    For every target DC has thats one more thing for the opposing defense to worry about ..... Less double coverage . Less Safety playing over the top .
    More opportunity for big plays , simple as that .
    The Texans have weapons on offense , they just need to utilize them all , not just try to get a specific match-up and attempt to exploit it (this isnt basketball and Rudy T is now coaching in L.A.).
