I won't sit here and tell you he's worth 11 million dollars though, because he ISN'T if he doesn't work on his effort a little bit.

If Ben doesn't hit him on the hands, he seems to give up even trying to make the catch, especially in the End Zone. Their was an instance in which Ben threw one into the End Zone and Wallace didn't even attempt to make the grab.

Sure, he probably wouldn't have got it, but at least GIVE A SHIT.
should let him walk and re-sign mendenhall. if this game was anything, i'd rather pay someone who is putting in 100% and making a difference. and that wasn't wallace. don't get me wrong, wallace is ultra talented but it upsets me to no end to see this guy basically quit on plays

and for those doubting mendenhall, you won't for long. mendenhall is light years beyond our other RB's in the talent department, in the right offensive system he will be huge (aka not the arians offense)

Are you trying to say that a lead block by Will Johnson, a screen pass with Gilbert out in front of Mendenhall is a better offense than handing him the ball with no lead blocker??......................OK, you may have a point.

Now, I know that is was only one game, and Wallace’s first three games were spectacular...

Just what did Wallace do in the first 3 games that was spectacular?

I'm just a tad worried that the money may be getting to AB's head a bit.
I'm just a tad worried he is not as good as the money he gets !

could be more if he doesnt quit on plays. his talent is undeniable, but his attitude / work ethic bothers me.

Wallace may have more touchdowns than Wallace, but Brown has more yards. Not to mention most of those touchdowns came in our two losses, if i'm not mistaken. Not really a statistic to make any case on this early in the season, but it's interesting when compared to Wallace's notable habit of giving up. At least it sure looks like he doesn't give a shit at times.

You can save all the breath you need about Wallace because it doesn't take a lot to explain him. He is a bitch. Period. Nothing is going to change it. There are Wallace's all across this world. Those who care about themselves, the money they will eventually spend and then be broke 2 years out the league, and then suing the NFL for negligence. We have seen it many times. We have Brown and Sanders. Those two seem to make catches when it trult matters. Same with Heath and now with Mendy back, just use Wallace when you can and thats it. Let him walk after the season and steelers will find another stud reciever in the 3rd or 4th round.

nobody has mentioned that mike wallace may suck just as bad as the texan's andre johnson, or that he may just not be as good as miami's brian hartline.
