The article focuses on the football team Pittsburgh Steelers. TE Heath Miller is the team's No. 2 receiving threat, but that was expected. Coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, a former tight end, says Miller is the best blocking rookie tight end he has seen. ILB Larry Foote's four tackles for loss in the win over the Minnesota Vikings, which included a sack and a safely, were an encouraging sign for the defense. The Steelers need more big plays from their linebackers to be a force in the playoffs. Unlike most recent Steelers running backs, Willie Parker does not do most of his damage between the tackles.
