  • I have seen them all and voted Miller. For everyone who has talked up Tice's blocking, I believe Miller is better. He routinely blocks defensive ends one on one. That is impressive. He is also a better receiver than Tice was.

Does that one performance make him the best ever? I'm going Mike Tice on this one. I wonder if Miller will be on the team this year. Both him and Rice have some huge contract to production ratio problems.

    Clearly a troll, but what the hell, I'll bite. Dude, you have been taking advantage of the WA MJ law changes a little too much. (especially since you're not even in WA, so be careful out there)

    Miller does what he's asked to do, and does it with excellence. Other posters laid it out pretty well. With TJack the team asked him to be another offensive lineman. With Wilson and his better mobility and decision-making, they let him release out a little more.

    Miller has been excellent and timely all year with his play. The one play against Washington in the Wildcard game, Hawks down 14-0, about to go 3-and-out again, was, in my mind his signature play for this season. He caught a crappy throw that 99% of TE's would have gone to the ground catching, turned, broke a had-him-dead-to-rights tackle, ran 5 or 6 yards, and stretched to get the first down by about a foot. Without that play, Seattle might be down 21-0 and lose that game.
    Miller and Rice have each made difference-making plays in several games this season, that we don't win without them making their plays. There is not a significant contract-to-production issue with either of them. The production issue was really about Pete and Darrell keeping the training wheels on for Russell Wilson a few games too long. When we're playing crappy pass D teams like Detroit, why did we try to gash them with the run instead of putting the ball in Russell the gunslinger's hands and telling him, "Russell, score early and often".

    Miller, hands down, in 3 years we are looking at him as the all-time Seahawks TE.

    Yes, Jerramy Stevens had the physical talent, but no brain. Itula Mili had the physical talent and the brain, but uncooperative knees. Tice wasn't a bad Offensive Tackle for Ground Chuck and even caught a ball or two. Christian Fauria and John Carlson were average-to-below NFL talents. I do miss the Great Carlester Crumpler, and while we're on that subject, the Great Cameron Morrah could still become the phenom if he can make the team next year. Anthony McCoy had an unbelievable year for someone who looks like a lumbering stiff, the dude just kept making plays you wouldn't expect him to make. (but a few key drops too)

    Zack Miller hands-down.

  • Just for comparison's sake, the results of the "Best Seahawks Tight End" from four years ago when we voted on our all-time team are below.

    1: Mike Tice, 22.1% of the vote
    2: Itula Mili, 20.0%
    3: Christian Fauria, 16.8%

    John Carlson finished 4th in the voting after his rookie year with many people expecting him to own all the team records for tight ends by this time. Here are the top 5 tight ends in receptions, yards & TDs.

    Receptions: Fauria (166), Mili (164), Carlson (137), Stevens (130), Young (97)
    Yards: Mili (1743), Fauria (1683), Carlson (1521), Stevens (1458), Young (1217)
    TDs: Stevens (15), Mili (13), Carlson (13), Tice (9), Fauria (8)

  • It amazes me that the Hawks have never had a great TE, the NW is used to a lot of great ones as the U of W is known is TE University and ASJ is the next great one coming out next year.

  • Young was the best, we got him at the tail end of his career though. You can't base this question on stats though. Depending on era a great TE could have been a run blocker that could engage and go down field first as well as catch a ball when asked. If you asked in a NE offense now it would be a pass catcher, same with Falcons. We ask for both run and catch so because we run about 50 percent of the time thats less passes thrown and opportunitys because we also spread the ball around.

    To Be P/C or Not P/C That is the Question..........Seahawks kick Ass !!!!

  • Miller in my opinion. Especially if he picks up where he left off.

    Anyone want to make me a new signature? I've held out hope long enough.

  • Miller is Mr. consistent, no matter the tasking. When asked to run block and pass pro, he did it lights-out...I'd say even better than Tice. As an all-round pass catcher, he's noticably better than any TE we've had. Carlson might come closer when it comes to pass catching, but I still can't see him getting open as consistently or making some of the insane catches Miller has made when called upon. I don't see how anyone could vote differently, and I've been a fan since the franchise started.

  • Mili played really well for the Seahawks, I was really bummed when he got hurt. I don't mean to offend, but Joe Jurevicius is my favorite WR for the Seahawks.....Least favorite was Jerry Rice.
