Spaeth is just terrible as a blocker ...

This. Spaeth whiffs on more blocks than any other Steeler I have seen over the past, I don't know, 20 years maybe.

Spaeth is not put in the backfield as a blocker on pass plays because his blocking is so bad. Miller is instead put beside Ben.

No, Miller is assigned pass blocking duty because his blocking is so good.

Quote:
Spaeth lunges and reaches frequently when run blocking, and winds up off balance and on the ground with great regularity.

He had one very good run block against the Packers. I was frankly stunned to see that it was Spaeth, not Miller, who made the block. I usually know that it is Spaeth "blocking" when I see the blocker on the ground and the defender crashing into the backfield.

We're obviously not talking about the same Spaeth :lol:

I'll go with my own observation and judgment, especially since it seems to line up with what the coaches see.

If it did, then David Johnson would not be leading Mendenhall in the SB.

I agree, the coaches see something. I just don't. Then again, my experience stopped as a college lineman and GA coach after that.

Spaeth is way too tall to line up at fullback.
