Default Re: Mendenhall demoted Wallace close, too

If we need underneath receivers and value tight ends, then we need to grab someone like Woods in the draft to replace him. As much as I hate to say it, I doubt he comes back to the Steelers next year and it won't be because we won't match the money another team will.

Well, we have thrown deep (or even semi-deep) to Wallace a number of times this year, but the fact is we haven't connected on them like we usually have done.
Chalk that up to either Wallace not doing a stellar effort on the route and also he's been both underthrown and overthrown a few times as well - certainly more than normal.

I've actually wondered both if he's not a great fit-in anymore or if the team is actually not looking his way as much as they have in the past (a passive form of "punishment"??) when they could have.
Whatever it is - you're right - he most certainly won't be back next year but it will be interesting to see where he ends up. I have a hunch he could end up with one of the California teams.
