What do you know? Look who's first on the depth chart at DT......Roy Miller

-------------------------------------------------------------


A lot has changed for Roy Miller in the span of a few months, and thats not a bad thing for the fourth-year defensive tackle from Texas.

Miller has had a topsy-turvy professional career. First he was ordered to put massive amount of weight on to fit into the heinous Jim Bates Experiment, then asked to drop it the following year, and in his third season, he was hurt most of the year.

Miller, who seemed to be a dead man walking the way Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik was collecting defensive tackles in the offseason, has been reborn and is now listed atop the depth chart with the first-team defense.

Millers health, or to be clear, his healthy body, seems to have been the difference. That is what he claimed over and over today after practice today at One Buc Palace.

    The difference between now and before, No. 1 thing is Im healthy, Miller said. And the scheme has changed, too. Were more of an attack team now. Its hard to see it, but without actually seeing were more of an attack-oriented scheme and Im excited about that. Thats what I did two years ago and I had a pretty good year. So Im looking forward to getting back to that.

The style of play that front seven assistant coach Bryan Cox employs is better suited to Millers skill set, so he claims.

I can play more aggressively and like I said, Im healthy, so Im ready, Im excited, Miller said. Last year was a little different, especially with the offseason, and then I got hurt, and so Im just looking forward to being consistent out here.

I have seen Miller play when healthy - here's hoping he will be better than we have seen to date.

He is a below average starter in the NFL. The film doesn't lie. I've seen guys that play DE play through worse injuries and still play up to standard.

Surprised Coach S hasn't picked up on this and moved on to signing some free agents DT and unloaded Miller as bad as posters in this thread think he is.

Of course Miller has a shot now. Price is no longer around.

Exactly.

He won't get pushed around this year Pre-season will show that. Let him prove what he can do when healthy under better coaching.

He looks to be in about the same shape as Price.

Funny you say that - he's had some aggravated injuries and hasn't been at 100% during camp.

But he didn't beat the **CENSORED** out of their #1 draft pick.

Miller is a bum enough said. If theres anyone i thing schiano cannot turn around and get them to even become a solid player its miller. I mean hes just not that good people. He gets tossed around more then a bag of chips at a party . Even schiano said he doesn't have much  depth at d tackle and miller at best is only depth not a solid starter by any means.
