I'm with you, except for this. He's not our top receiver. If he was, the scheme would already fit him. We threw deep to him a few times this year only to see him drop a ball that hit him in the hands. The scheme didn't cause that. He's a solid #2 situational receiver. Brown is our #1, and will be for years to come.
Brown was our #1 before we went to the current scheme, and he is our #1 after. We don't need to change our offense around to make sure everyone points to him as being a star. Wallace wants the offense to be changed to revolve around making him a star, because he can't do it otherwise. See the difference here?
