Holding out for a bigger paycheck you have not earned, and holding the team hostage over it, is not showing us he wants to be here still.
Seeking a top-5 WR contract when you cannot even break 1000 yards receiving is arrogant and not showing us he wants to be here long-term.
Alligator-arming catchable passes and short-arming marginal ones is not showing us he wants to be here.
An inability to run any route other than a post or streak shows us he is not a long term solution.
He cried for more deep passing plays, which our coaching staff caved in to in the second half of the season. The result? We got to watch him put 40 yard passes on the ground instead of 15 yard ones. Or worse, yet, he watched as the defenders intercepted it.
Then, when it becomes clear we are out of the postseason, he decides he does not have to play anymore and sits the game out.
Mike Wallace would make nearly a perfect Raider. He is a trojan horse and a blackhole for big plays.
Haley's offense hinges around getting rid of the ball quicker and a lot of high-opercentage plays. Possession-type receivers are more important to that scheme than deep threats with shoddy hands and bad attitudes. Right now, Brown, Sanders, and Cotchery are more vital to this offense than Wallace.
nice job. you saved me alot of typing.
lets not forget how he admitted to losing concentration(because he wasnt getting the ball when in fact he got more looks this year than ever)
