The Steelers and many of their fans have known what they had in Heath Miller for a long time. One of the reasons so many fans were fed up with former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was his limited use of Miller in the passing game especially in the red zone. The most touchdowns Miller ever scored when Arians was the offensive coordinator was 7 in 2007. Over the past two years...
