Default Re: Mendenhall demoted Wallace close, too

tomlin all but said if batch plays, those plays will be stricken from the gameplan.

this was the stretch of the season, where haley had planned to really unleash ben and wallace and take the league by storm with offensive explosion.

bens injury + byrons + injury + charlies peckerstroker = screwed up the whole gameplan.

when ben plays, wallace will be starter.
But all that doesn't explain why wallace has played this way since the middle of last season. It's not just his lack of effort, I honestly don't think he has the ability to be an elite receiver in the league. He can't catch with his hands, he uses his body too much, he has never attacked the ball well, and hes a mediocre route runner. I'd rather have Sanders any day.
