Nick Millers' only ccatch of the season
A product of the Raider Nation hype machine.
Last year Nick Miller suffered an injury in preseason. Lacking any foresight whatsoever, the Raiders left him on the roster in the hopes that he would heal before the season ended. Unfortunately, it didn't happen and he was just a waste of roster space.
This led many Raider fans to assume he had playmaking ability and was actually worth a roster spot. Some fans even went as far as to compare him to Wes Welker, suggesting he would actually contribute to the offense.
So far he has shown us nothing.
He has one reception on the season. Hell, Khalif Barnes has more than that and he even has a TD to go along with his catches.
As a returner, he has disappointed as well, often leaving Raider fans gasping in fear every time he fields the ball. Please someone teach this guy how to fair-catch...please!!!
Oh yeah and to go along with his lacking return ability and one reception, he has two fumbles
I don't know what so many Raider fans see in this guy. Do they just like him because he is white? Or did they buy into the hype that they themselves created? Or do they just like the idea of the Raiders finding a gem in a 5'9", undrafted, no-name receiver?
I really don't know. In my opinion, he's just as big of a waste of a roster spot as he was last year. Though it would be nice if he proved me wrong by taking a few punts to the house.
