It's occurred to me recently that there's a few factors that may contribute to Miller making the probowl this season. I certainly think he's talented enough and a better pure TE than some players, like Gates or Winslow. But, in a numbers contest, he's gotten overlooked for the honors. He has a good shot this year though.
1. Contract year. He'll likely be playing above his usual high level.
2. Despite whatever upside our next 3rd receiver will have, Miller we be a more consistent and reliable target during the bulk of the season while our replacement for Washington learns the system.
3. The offseason has shuffled Gonzales and Winslow to the NFC. Now there's a few talented TE's left in the AFC, but with those two gone, Miller really might have a better chance the the PB this year. This could be a career year for him.
