The only one of the 4 listed that is a viable pass-catching threat is Hester.
Hate to be a dick, but I was watching our past 4 wins closely, and when Miller wasn't out in formation, we had 3-WR sets present (whether it was a run or a pass). In fact this was so obvious it's hard not to see defenses picking this up in the film room.

It's very true! Commentators used to say, "Follow Miller and you'll find the ball every time." That was SO true. So if he's out, as a DC, I wouldn't even bother with the run game...DB-up!

I was a bit bewildered cause I didn't even notice this, cause Miller has just been an awesome guy, but I haven't looked at all those horrible plays like in the Panthers game where we were 3 & 2, and Miller is out there... and the defenses know it's either gonna be a read-option or a RB.
Might be a blessing in disguise. New plays that nobody has seen?

Truth-be-told, I paid extra attention to that after they said it as well and man, were they right. I would imagine a DC would spot that pattern/tendency with ease.

Agreed...no wait, we're bringing back Will Tukuafu. So now it will be, "Where there is a Will, there's the ball." LMAO
