Good. People act like they think Plexiglass would be bad for a Steelers offense that was horrendously poor in the red zone the past two years.
He almost caught 50 passes as the #2 receiver on a BAD passing team. He's a bigger red zone threat than Mike Wallace because he...
1) has better hands than Wallace
2) draws a double coverage in short yardage because of his size. Wallace, on the other hand, does not draw double coverage in short yardage because he's and average route runner. Means Antonio will get doubled. Or Cotchery. Or Miller.
I'm sure people will have facts to argue those two points.
Plexico might not be an upgrade to Wallace, but I'd sign him in a second if he wanted to be here for less than what Mike Wallace is asking. He brings VALUE.
