    so, folks are talking about how the denver post suggested that miller would start his career at guard rather than tackle.

    how does a "vertically challenged" qb see his passing lanes behind a 6' 9" guard?

    are the Buffs going to run a "jake plummer" offense where c-hawk rolls out on basically every passing down?

    i am skeptical about this report. i think he will play tackle exclusively. whether he starts or whether he playrs right or left tackle will depend on his readiness and team needs, but guard? naaaaaw.

    ****, few QBs could see over Miller whether he's at G or T. I have faith that the coaches will play him where he's best suited. 6-8, 320 is just monstrous.

    That is easy...

    The only person who is saying that is Jim Armstrong who at best is the local village idiot.

    Um, Little Hawk ain't a ****ing loser, fruitcake, dip**** like Jake Plummer.

    Miller will be fine at guard if he plays there..

    As long as he is knocking opponents on their asses I don't care which position he starts at.:thumbsup:

    I'm certainly no expert. But I watched Miller in the playoffs and thought he needed a LOT of work on his technique. Especially in run blocking. He would just throw himself at the defender's legs and stop. He never got down field. So, I think he will be a great one, but it'll take some time. If he isn't a starter, I won't be surprised at all.
