Default Steelers Fever Exclusive Editorial: Wallace???

Wednesday, October 9th, 2012
By Tiger Rowan
Steelers Fever Columnist


Part way through the Eagles-Steelers game, my brother turned to me, and stated, “The Steelers gave the correct wide receiver (Antonio Brown) the money.”

Indeed.

In case you missed the game, Mike Wallace quit. You can sugar-coat it all you want to and/or blame it on the rain (fallin’, fallin’), but there is no way around it: Mike Wallace had one of the most apathetic performances that I have seen in a long time.

Any and every player can have a bad game. I understand that. Cornerbacks get beaten; running backs run into walls of defenders; and quarterbacks throw three interceptions. Bad games are a part of playing sports.

But, what Mike Wallace did was completely different.

A player can try their hardest, and through no fault of their own, have a bad game… due to being slightly off and/or due to the opposition being in a zone. Sometimes, the better team just wins (or, the worse team wins, because they played the perfect game)… even though a player might be putting forth their full effort. That is the beauty of sports.

Too busy keeping an eye on Colon to see if he was holding for the hundredth time.

The one who fumbled the Oakland game away, dropped a long TD in the Eagles game, and played a subpar game in general after mocking Eagles' DB's during the week? The guy with one TD in four games?

I'm starting to think they paid Brown too much, too early in his career.

And Wallace is definitely not worth the money he wants. If Santonio gets a clean bill of health next spring, I'd love to see the Steelers get him on the cheap so they can spend money on the defense.

i don't know that i'd say "he quit", but he was definitely "loafing".....a problem that goes back through the entire last half of last year.
Watch some of the other BIG time receivers in the league play and then watch Wallace. There's definitely a drop-off in effort and tenacity.

No way the Steelers will up any offer they've already made at this point. I've said before that another team will likely pony up more money (just look at the way some of the dumb teams in the league lavishly, and now foolishly, threw money around this off-season.....Bills anyone?). But he won't get it here.

They'll never bring him back here. Not only would they not do it in the first place, he's also had "prima donna" issues over there as well...
Never happen.
