View Full Version : Steeler receivers licking their chops again

Last time they did this, they choked on a candy bar. Just shut up and play, please.

Wallace believes it’s time to bring back the fear factor.

“Last year, we went deep so much that guys would back up all the time,” he said Thursday. “This year, we’ve been going (short) so much, guys I think are kind of forgetting who we are when it comes to deep balls. They’re forgetting we’re the best in the world. We need to remind them.”

This might be the week to go deep.

“There are definitely going to be opportunities — a lot of them,” receiver Antonio Brown said. “We’ve got to take advantage of them, capitalize on them.”

The Washington Redskins (3-4) rank last in the NFL in pass defense, allowing 328.4 yards per game and 7.71 yards per attempt. No doubt offensive coordinator Todd Haley is paying attention.

“I think he’s going to give us a couple of shots,” Wallace said.

The Redskins’ secondary, which starts cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson and safeties Reed Doughty and Madieu Williams, has allowed 16 touchdown passes. The most recent was an everyone-knew-it-was-coming Eli Manning to Victor Cruz 77-yard winner with 73 seconds left Sunday against the New York Giants.

“They’re OK. They’re decent,” Wallace said of the Redskins’ secondary. “DeAngelo is a perennial Pro Bowler guy. … I don’t feel like they have tremendous athletes over there, but they’re always in the right spots.”

Start catching short passes.. and deep passes... and short passes that can turn into long receptions... oh, and touchdowns.

Once you have those four areas shored up, THEN you may talk.

After last week's performance you would think he would just shut up and play better.
Keep it up Mike......you're making the Steelers decision easier.

Sue me for pointing it out-- but his sig is about the same size as yours. But I guess that wasn't your point....

Wallace did catch 8 passes last week. He didn't drop everything. But it was still unacceptable. He is going to unleash HELL on the Washington secondary this weekend.

unacceptable if you expect to get paid $11 million/year, yes.

More "candy bars?" Hopefully Wallace doesn't find a butterfinger this time around.

Yes he caught 8 passes, however, 2 of the 3 he dropped were key. 1st drive , dropping s pass on third that would have given us a 1st down deep in Cincy territory, we settled for a FG. He dropped a ball in the end zone as well. I don't care if he catches 20 balls , if he drops 3 balls in key situations in a game he ain't worth the money he's asking as the key drops COULD lead to a loss.

Wallace is tied for 1st with 5 drops. thats just AFC ranking.

No he didn't drop everything, but he has to do more than catch screen passes and deep balls.
