Heath Miller's Astounding Increase in Production and His Feelings About the Disaster in Kansas City

 

I read a post from TheCommish that got me thinking about good old number 83.  I'm totally bummed about last week and how Heath had such a great game but had that drop that led to disaster.  Overall I'm thrilled with his performance thus far in 2009. TheCommish said:

 

What more would you like to see from Heath

He has already surpassed his season totals for all of 2008?

I had an idea about Heath's increased production this year. I figured as the offense throws more he will get more action.  The two should have a positive correlation.

So by my calculations Miller has had an 80% increase in catches per game, a 53% increase in yards per game and a whopping 167% increase in touchdowns per game compared to last year!  How much has the passing increased in total?  Only 27% per game.  So Heath has increased in production per game significantly more than the passing game as a whole has.  That exceeded the expectations I had before the Excel fun I just enjoyed.  To bad all the analytics I do for work aren't on cool stuff like that. Even though he caused a game-changing interception last week I still dig Heath.  The guy is money and to read this in the PG the other day shows what a competitor he is even after that pick:

Miller was so upset that he didn't sit with his teammates on the bench during the Chiefs' possession that followed. He stood on the sideline with his helmet on.

"It's disappointing because I want to be a guy who, when I get a chance to make a play to help this team, I make it," Miller said, still despondent 20 minutes after the game, probably moreso than anyone in the losing locker room. "Generally, we didn't do the things a good offense does. But I can only speak for myself. I was way below the standard today. That's unacceptable."

He looked as if he were going to cry.

Man to say he's below the standard when he had one of the best games of his career!  YES IT IS ABOUT WINNING NOT STATS AND HEATH GETS IT.  He's helped the Steelers win quite a few if my memory serves me.
