Wallace: NFL's Fastest Receiver?
 
PITTSBURGH (AP) Even if it might just be his greatest asset, Mike Wallace does little to help his own cause.
The Steelers third-year receiver just can't help himself. To him, hey, "An apple is an apple. You know what I'm saying?"
Wallace tells anyone who asks he's the fastest player in the NFL.
"I've always been feeling like that," Wallace said, matter-of-factly. "I'm still feeling like that, and I don't see anything changing."
Opposing cornerbacks who have faced him won't argue. After an electrifying five-catch, 144-yard performance in a 23-20 win in Indianapolis on Sunday that included a career-long 81-yard touchdown, Wallace is second in the NFL in receiving yards and tied for third in receptions.
The secret might be getting out on Wallace emerging as one of the league's best receivers. And Wallace does little to keep his 4.2-speed quiet, either. The irony is that it's the surprise factor that some say has helped Wallace run past so many defensive backs in his first three seasons as a pro.

Bob Sanders ain't walking through that door either, Colts fan. And there's no catching Mike Wallace. Fastest man in the league. Ask him.

Or Heyward-Bey, the WR drafted 3,000 spots ahead of him, based solely on his straight-line speed.

"Wes Welker is better."

Just thought I'd preempt some of our less enthused board members.

good call.

it wont be long before one of our disinfranchised steelerfans starts a thread stating why wes welker is more deserving of the HOF than old man, washed up, should be benched, hines ward.

....and THEN stating he's why the patriots will kick the steelers ass later in the season.

i dont think ike has ever shadowed welker. id rather have ryan clark on him anyways.

belichick will probably have tom brady on wallace to eliminate his threat.
