If tight end Zach Miller has any frustration about the way he’s being used in the Seahawks offense, he certainly does a good job of hiding it.
Miller is again spending more time blocking than running routes, but when asked Thursday about his lack of targets, his answer was similar to the one he gave all of last season when he finished with 25 catches for 233 yards, both career lows.
“My biggest thing is I want to win, and whatever that takes I’m up for that,” Miller told “Bob and Groz” on Thursday.
Miller has 14 catches for 179 yards, modest numbers that are largely a product of a conservative offense that isn’t relying a whole lot on rookie quarterback Russell Wilson.
“Obviously, we’ve been running the football a lot this year and we haven’t been putting the ball up a lot throwing-wise. So we’re not having a lot of huge days passing, and when we do I know there’s going to be plenty of balls going around for everyone. I know that will come,” Miller said.
“Obviously, when you have a rookie quarterback you want to limit his mistakes, and that’s what we’ve been focusing on.”
In the video below, Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby wonder whether getting Miller more involved in the passing game would give Wilson the help he needs.
