Default Re: Mike Wallace vs Swann, Ward etc.

"He's about as exciting as it comes. He gets down field faster than me and Lynn did. As for being the long ball receiver, that's his forte. Swann and I thought we were longball players too, but we couldn't run like that.
"Wallace has potential to get better. That doesn't lessen what he's done, though. He has a lot of talent as a receiver already." --- John Stallworth.

-Stallworth spoke very highly of Wallace.

-At no point did I say Wallace was better than Stallworth or Swann.

-No one has compared Wallace's start to Ward's start even though they played in the same era and many people think Ward is the best Steelers receiver ever.

-Wallace compares to his peers the same way Swann and Stallworth compared to their peers- all of them were just outside of top 5 for their eras.

-Swann and Stallworth had the best Steelers quarterback ever throwing to them.
