Miller has improved mightily as a passer, but he is still very much a work-in-progress. He has all the arm strength needed, but his ball placement and touch are extremely inconsistent, which are a direct result of inconsistent mechanics. Miller is comfortable in the pocket, but he tends to rush his process and escape before necessary, looking tentative as a runner as if he's protecting himself from injury.
Miller returned from a left knee sprain against Wisconsin last week and erased all doubts of who the starting quarterback should be. But against Northwestern on the road, Miller struggled mightily as a passer and was tentative as a runner, giving the ball to the Wildcats three times with a pair of fumbles and an interception.
He finished Saturday night 15-for-26 (57.7%) for 203 yards, adding 68 yards on the ground, but didn't find the end zone with his arm or his legs. (10/11/13)
