Poll: Who's The Steelers' Top Threat?

Posted Nov 16, 2012

WR Mike Wallace, WR Antonio Brown and TE Heath Miller are Pittsburgh’s top targets.


In the words of Head Coach John Harbaugh, Pittsburgh has weapons “all over the field.”

The Steelers’ prime three targets are wide receiver Mike Wallace, wide receiver Antonio Brown and tight end Heath Miller.

But which one is the most dangerous?

Wide Receiver Mike Wallace

“Mike Wallace is a huge, big-play threat,” Harbaugh said. “Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, [even] Heath Miller is a down-the-field threat when they run the seam routes and the seven routes. Every single one of those guys can get loose on you at any time.”

Wallace gets the most publicity for his long touchdowns. The flat-out speedster logged an 82-yard score against Tennessee in Week 6 and took a short pass across the middle for 51 yards against the New York Giants two weeks ago.

He leads the team with 539 receiving yards on 42 receptions, and has a team-high 12.8 yard per reception average and six touchdowns (tied for the most on the team).

Wallace had two good games against Baltimore last year, notching eight catches for 107 yards in the season-opener, then four grabs for 68 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown in the second meeting in Pittsburgh.

Wide Receiver Antonio Brown

Brown also has high-end speed, but has shown more elusiveness than Wallace. Brown has the same number of catches as Wallace (42), but has logged 259 yards after catch compared to Wallace’s 195. Brown only has one touchdown, however, and his longest reception is of 27 yards.

Brown has had two big games against the Ravens. He caught a 58-yard pass in the 2010 playoffs that set up the winning score, and had five snags for 109 yards last year in Baltimore.

However, Brown may not suit up for Sunday’s game due to a lingering ankle injury that kept him out of practice Wednesday and Thursday.

“They’re all the same type of guys, speedy guys who are quick off the line,” cornerback Cary Williams said.

Tight End Heath Miller

The dark horse amongst the targets may be Miller, who is having a career year in Pittsburgh Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley’s quick release offense.

Through nine games, the eight-year veteran is on pace to crush his career highs in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. He has 43 catches for 431 yards and six touchdowns this year. More than half (26) of his receptions have been for first downs.

Defensive Coordinator Dean Pees said Miller is still one of the best tight ends in the league.

“Heath Miller, he’s a crafty veteran,” Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain said. “He understands how to get open in his routes, he understands weaknesses in certain coverages and he’s an aggressive blocker.”
