Default Re: Who Makes Up For The Catches The Steelers Lost When Wallace Left?

No doubt, we will miss the big play capability of Wallace however, what will replace him is a much more consistent productive offense. For every one of those bombs, maybe we give up 3-4 3rd down conversions, and two sacks a game. IMO, that's a good trade off.

As for a deep threat, and Wheatons adjustment to the pro-game.... How much brain power does it take to run a fly pattern down the sideline? One tenth of a second is not going to make that big of a difference.

I have little doubt that Coach Mann will find a way to use this kid in a productive manner. But he'd better block, something Wallace had a major aversion about.
