Mike Miller Named Shaw CFL Top Performer for Week 4

WINNIPEG, MB., July 9, 2019 - The Canadian Football League announced Tuesday that fullback Mike Miller has been named a Shaw CFL Top Performer for his showing in last week's win against the Ottawa REDBLACKS.

Miller tied a CFL record with seven special teams tackles Friday night in the capital, bringing his season total in three games played to eight. In 2018, Miller recorded 22 special teams tackles, second only to Chandler Fenner's 24.

Exhume got 5 tackles game one, Miller gets 7... do our ST's emphsize one guy to make tackles?  I get gunners and contain, etc, but is there a designated "get 'em" guy, or is it just happenstance?

Interesting question. Miller is getting closer to all time most ST's. Wade Miller was our guy in the day. So I suppose yes there is a designated " go get em " guy on every team.

Each player has a specific role but game speed is dynamic. Opponents might focus blocking on the " get em guy ". Teams will adjust to things like that with an option 1A and 1B as game develops.

If it wasn't for us playing Toronto this week I would thought any opposition coach would be game planing on 11 players assigned to block Miller. lol Smiley

The answer to this question is the "get 'em" guy always has to be named Miller.

Miller does a lot more then just make tackles. He caught one pass for 14 yards, and comes in to add extra blocking. I would like to the bombers us him a little more on the O.

Nah. He is nice once in awhile but I don't think he needs a bigger role on O. A couple catches a year is fine but too much more and we might see drops. If we wanna use a fullback as more than just a blocker I'd bring an actual fullback in

A lot is luck.  However, there are specific roles.  Maybe someone can correct me, but I think the 1st wave are gunners (2) meant to define the initial lanes and take a diving tackle shot if they think they can or the guy is trying to break contain.

It's the 2nd wave that is meant to make the bulk of the tackles.  I believe Miller is one of those guys?  Surely he's no later than 3rd wave.  I bet Miller plays wherever Arakgi used to play on BC.

No doubting that Miller has a ton of hustle and a nose for the ball.  Love to see him keep it up, and if he makes down conversion RECs on O, put him in as much as you want!!
