I know alot of people here were looking to replace #86 because of his high salary next season, but dude is invaluable to what we do. Maybe third most important player on offense besides Russ and Lynch. What an amazing, clutch performance!!

TE's like him arent grown on tree's, definently a BIG key to this offense. He's got great blocking skills, great hands, and knows how to get first downs. When its his time to make a play, he just DOES it, nike style.

He will only grow in this offense with RW.

i watched Miller today, and he did a great job run blocking.

Anthony McCoy might need to go next year, he nearly cost us the game with a easy drop.

He's worth what he's paid. Has done everything asked of him including mostly block (and very well I might add) throughout his time here without a single complaint. When given the opportunity, he has got open and caught the ball (unlike some other TEs *cough McCoy cough*).

And he's also blocked really, really well for 2 years.

He was a great tight end when he got here. Just needed someone to throw him the friggin ball. Tough to do anything with Tarvaris at QB.

as many times as I think that and say it aloud, I them remember him (McCoy) scoring on big plays. as much as I could see it going either way with him staying or going next year, I still think he fits our 'big play' scheme in the red zone. he's definitely a roller coaster of emotion for a fan. not to hijack the thread here, Zach miller is the freaking man! he got my vote for 'most valuable play', without that first down early I think our entire team craps themselves at that point in the game. after that I think there was a giant, collective breath of fresh air.

Zack Miller has been my unsung hero this season. He may not have big stat numbers but his play for the team has been exceptional. He does so many of the little things right.

Blocking isn't sexy to some people, but Zach is a great part of our offense.

That's the thing for me. He's not just a receiving TE or a blocking TE, he's a complete TE.

I remember prior threads calling to cut him, but I never thought that was a good idea.

He earns his paycheck, for sure. And once in a while he comes up with BIG, CLUTCH plays like we saw today.

McCoy, I'd give at least another season, unless we draft a stud TE that takes his job. The essence of ComPete.

OMG just watched the Lynch TD again on NFL Network. I didn't realize how Miller destroyed the Redskins OLB on that play. Take a look at about the 40 second mark

Let's not jump the gun there champ. McCoy did some great things that assisted in getting the team victories as well.

I completely agree. I said at that point, 'THAT WAS THE SPARK! That will get the O back on track.' Great game by ZM tonight.

In sharp contrast to Anthony McCoy, who continued with the dropsies.

Also... it's not often the play-of-the-game comes in the first quarter, but for me it was on the first 3rd down for the 'hawks after they were down 14-0. Miller makes that acrobatic catch, maintains his balance, and fights off two tacklers to extend for the first down. Down 14 if the 'hawks go 3-and-out on that series the game starts to get away from them. That play seemed to give the offense a much needed boost.

On Marshawn's TD run, Zach Miller turned #56 Perry Riley on his ass with a massive shoulder-to-chest pancake block through him. Good god that was a nasty block. I would love to get an animated gif of that one.

When we first started this Zone blocking scheme and struggling with it under Mora, some ex players /analysts were saying the biggest problem was the the TEs in this scheme. The TEs play a big part of the zone blocking system. Carlson was not getting it. Next year under Mora , the same senerio, ex lineman/players/analyst were saying the biggest problem with the Seahawks attempt at zone blocking was the play of the TE. The whole scheme breaks down when the TE does not do his job. Come the next year, we bring in Zack Miller. Eight games latter, Lynch is running wild and the whole blocking system is working. Miller is a big part of this success. The man earns his pay check. Tom Cable was smart to convince Pete to sign this player.

I was not aware of this at all but in hindsight it did click when Miller came on board. Really good post man and if this is indeed true, you can bet your bottom dollar Miller will be a Seahawk next year, contract be damned. Oh, but don't forget some of it was also Marshawn going to Cable and asking for help with what he could do to make it work too. That's been reported on numerous occasions.

That 2 point conversion catch was a thing of beauty too. Pure clutch. He was hammered right when the ball got there, but he held on.

Pure stud today.

How long do teams have to reallocate player salaries/contracts to this year's cap?
