    After the call, the NYRB need to trade or drop Miller; his tenure with the RB has been mediocre at best, and a disaster against San Jose...he brings nothing to the offense and on defense he is highly overrated...time to reorganize the defense and get better team shape and movement, or else this season will go up in smoke.
