The Pittsburgh Steelers 0-4 start to the 2013 season has included very few bright spots, but tight end Heath Miller certainly has to be considered one of them even though he's only played in two games. Miller, who made his season debut in week three in the Sunday night loss to the Chicago Bears, caught six passes for 70 yards Sunday in London in the loss to the Minnesota Vikings and his 28-yard catch on third and long during the opening possession of the second half kept a drive alive that ended in points. Miller is not only contributing in the passing game, but the blocking department as well as he had a key block on the eight yard touchdown run by rookie running back Le'Veon Bell in the first quarter. With only two games now underneath his belt in 2013, Miller has nine total catches for 105 yards and while he has yet to find the end zone this season, it's only a matter of time before he does. Last season, the Steelers offense ran through Miller to the tune of 71 catches for 816 yards and eight touchdowns and it is starting to do so again. "It's a small margin of error for victories in this league and we're learning that," Miller said following the loss Sunday. "Every play is important, whether it be in the first quarter or the last quarter and we have to understand that and we have to play as if the game depends on each play." Miller's words are simple, but right to the point and he will never be accused of not knowing how important each and every snap in a game is. His commitment to the game should be used more often by the coaches as an example to the younger players on the roster. It will take that kind of commitment from everyone on the team if they want to right a ship that has taken on way too much water to start the season.
