Default Steelers Fever Exclusive Editorial: Mike Wallace Holdout

Mike Wallace's holdout was a business decision --- and a good one.

It's sure been a rough going, Steelers fans...

Offensive and Defensive Steelers' legends, James Farrior and Hines Ward we're released this off-season, and to put the cherry on top, Mike Wallace's future in Pittsburgh is uncertain.

Many Steelers fans have expressed their disapproval of Mike Wallace's actions and decisions this off-season, but in reality, his decisions make perfect sense.

Enter Steelers' rookie Offensive Guard David DeCastro.

In the first quarter of the August 23rd preseason matchup in Buffalo, DeCastro tore his MCL, dislocated his knee-cap and suffered damage to his Patellar tendon --- all in just one play.

DeCastro, who was already projected as a starter, will miss as much as half of this season due to his injuries, a big blow to an offensive line that has gained a lot of negative criticism over the past few years.

But where does Mike Wallace come into the equation, you say?

May not be much, but at least we've got the ball rolling! It's awesome having the site in position to receive regular updates, and now you'll start receiving Exclusive Steelers Fever Editorials, on hopefully a regular basis.

Not sure of the context for this comment. Has something else come up? It sounded like he was regaining their favor over the past months. Also, not sure how it fits in with the Wallace story, which otherwise seems spot on.

Oh!

I'm so sorry, dude. I used a template of an older editorial to code this one, and I must have forgot to remove that little bit. I proofread it three times and STILL missed it. Thanks for pointing that out, and thanks for your input!

Ha! I hear ya. Do that mess all of the time.

In all honesty though, I really hadn't thought of the Wallace situation from that perspective. Now that I have, he seems a lot less selfish, and I also see why he was bent out of shape over the discussions taking place over the summer about his decision to hold out.

Now hopefully he can haul in some miraculous fingertip catches and lighning fast routes and get that 7th ring

Thank you.

That was my intentions. I wanted to deliver an in-depth view of the Wallace holdout from, what I think, is his personal perspective.

I'm by no means the first person to offer this perspective, of course, but I decided to make it into and editorial to help get that ball rolling yet again.

Didn't take long for this to get a google ranking of number one.

Thanks for the levelheaded article Bayz. There was too much gossip this offseason over the drama between him and Steelers.

Just an FYI, your word "chances" needs to be fixed.

Anyway, great piece look forward to reading more articles from you.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll keep them coming. And thanks for the heads up on the error. I've fixed it.

La Canfora: A deal between Mike Wallace, Steelers becoming more unlikely

By Eye on Football staff
September 1, 2012



It's still possible for Wallace to get a long-term deal before the season starts.

The following is a report from CBSSports.com's NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Follow him on Twitter at @JasonLaCanfora.

The Steelers and receiver Mike Wallace will continue contract dialogue this week, but chances of an extension look slim for now, according to league sources.

The Steelers do not engage in contract talks in-season, and that will not change. As we have been reporting for months, Wallace could land a five-year deal worth roughly $50 million with at least half of that guaranteed, but he has been fixated on making $11 million a season or more.

The sides have re-established a dialogue after Wallace ended his holdout but have yet to bridge their gap. Should Wallace accept that the $10-million per season is fair, then a deal is possible prior to their opener next Sunday. But otherwise he stares at the prospect of playing this season for less than $3 million and then could be franchised in 2013 and 2014.
