Default Re: Steelers, Mike Wallace continue to make progress on new deal

I'm a fan of Wallace but am getting tired of all this talk. I have gone on record before as saying if he doesn't want to be here , ;let him go preferably by trade. Wallace is a good young receiver and he will be a value to us if he has his head on straight, but until he shows he can beat the double coverage on a regular basis he is just another guy with great speed. Brown had a great second half of the season last year because Mike was double teamed, Wallace fell off, because of those same double teams. If Mike wants to show how great he is and get the big money he needs to get in camp, learn the new O, and learn to defeat the constant double teams he is going to see. The Steelers showed good faith by giving the tender they did and then NOT reducing it June 15 like they cold have done. Wallace needs to show the same good faith and sign his tender and report to camp and work on his new deal , which I believe would come easier if he signs the tender and reports.

If Wallace can avoid missing camp time, then the offense will have a great chance to understand Haley's playbook. I would feel a lot better with all the pieces to the puzzle together.

i agree about beating the double team, but only a select few are able to do that on a regular basis - IMHO, all Wallace has to do is continue to put up the numbers he is and then we'll all probably be wondering about him after the new contract is up - I'm already impressed with what the Steelers org is capable of - but if Wallace and Brown continue to produce and they keep them both for their careers - that would be unheard of in today's NFL - two Pro Bowl receivers long term.

Wallace will also be helped by an improved OL. Hard for Ben to hit the deep pattern as he dodges LBers

agreed - it only speaks to the talent and will of this team that it happened as many times as it did since Wallace came along - not shocked really just saying that overall, I feel we have top 5 talent on offense - can you imagine if they are firing on all cylinders come the 2nd half of the season?

Wallace has stated he wants to be here, but he wants to get the best contract he can get. I think it will get done in less than 2 weeks.

Yes only a select few can beat the double consistently, guys like Fitz, Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson etc. Problem is Mike thinks he's worth Fitz money and until he can do that like Fitzgerald he needs to scale his demands back and get to camp.

Please point me to where Wallace or his agent said this rather than a 3rd party, such as the oft-referenced San Francisco 49ers beat writer that originally "broke" that story and has spread like wildfire despite never being substantiated.
