I tried to stay out of all this wallace stuff; but these comments make me laugh!! You seriously can't believe the steelers will shell out 9 m to wallace and i don't see any team stupid enough to give up a first round pick plus that big contract to a guy who was completely outplayed at the wr position by antonio brown!! If he signs elsewhere; relax guys; there will still be football in sept and i'm sure the steelers will be in good shape with 2 first round picks!!

Default Wallace or First round pick?????

Which side of the fence are you on. At first I was all about keeping wallace but after taking a good look at it and looking at all things I would give just about anything to see someone else sign him. Bottom line is we need a few things..long term things to get this team back where it needs to be.. WR is the one spot on the team that we are looking great.. Not to mention I dont think the Steelers will pay number one type money to TWO different Receivers. We have Brown, Sanders, IMO Crochery will be back, throw in Miller... that alone is one of the better Receiving cores without Wallace in all of football.


The reason I want the pick most is because of the chance it gets us to fix all our problems in one off season not to mention the money wallace would get.. just to much..

Bottom line what if we could get Hightower, and Glenn in first round... to me that would be a dream draft that could happen if Wallace went somewhere else..

Bring in Gaither for a small price at RT

you would have Gilbert Glenn Pouncey Colon Gaither on the OL

Hightower in the midd of that D with Timmons would be un real...

I know I Know Im sure all of you have many different things you would do with the extra pick and thats fine... but the poll question is simple do you want Wallace or do you want another draft pick...

I want the Draft pick...

at the same time I will say its a win Win for the Steelers either way... I think if he stays we are gonna be great with our New O Coord calling the plays...

anyway which side of the fence are you guys on??????

I understand what you are saying, because we clearly have some pressing needs along the offensive line and at ILB (and to a lesser extent nose tackle.) That being said, we have a history of drafting well both in the first and later rounds. I believe we need to spend our first round pick on an O-lineman, unless Hightower or Poe is available to us when we pick.

I agree that Sanders and Brown are both good options going forward at wideout. I have to think that if we lost Wallace that Cotch would be all for coming back as the third WR, and of course an extra first-round pick would be extremely valuable, especially for a team that has made good on every first-round pick since 2004. But, people need to remember that this league is rapidly evolving into an overwhelmingly pass-first league. Wide receivers are more valuable now than ever, especially one who stretches the field so much to allow the other receivers to run wild underneath. It is my opinion that we need to bring back Wallace at almost any cost.

It is comforting that if we do lose Mike we will cash in on another pick. I'm not sure if another team is going to take the bait, though. Possible scenario. If this does happen, would we consider packaging both of our first round picks to trade up to take Hightower or Poe?

We won't get Gaither to play tackle because Colon is expected to return from his injury and play RT, while Gilbert is entrenched at the other tackle spot.

lets hope the steelers dont go into the season with Colon ( coming off two years in a row of season ending injuries ) as the only answer at RT...


I like Colon and think he can be solid but you just cant do into the season and take that chance when the OL has burned us the year before...
