Sidney Rice was routinely getting separation and was missed by RW who preferred to scramble/run vs gunning it from the pocket. I've seen way too many replays of him being open, and being frustrated that the ball simply wasn't there. so yes, stats are deceiving. he did haul in a bunch of spectacular catches when it counted the most, so I'd say he did earn every penny.
Zach Miller is, without any doubt, is a top 10 (if not top 5) TE in the leage. he is worth every penny no matter how you slice it.
