Default Brown is our #1 Receiver

This game sealed it for me that Antonio Brown is our number one receiver. Wallace doesn't get open nearly as much as Brown. Wallace dropped several passes tonight. He doesn't seem to be much of an intermediate threat that Brown is.

I've known for quite some time that Brown was the better receiver, but I guess it takes some peeps awhile.

Definitely. We extended the right guy. Love Wallace's speed but Brown has shown himself to be the better all around WR.

Brown has played better every week, but I kept thinking maybe Wallace just needs a little time since he missed training camp. Now I'm fully convinced that Brown is our better receiver. I wouldn't pay Wallace more than him at the end of the season.

exactly. Not only is he the better "all-around" player, he's a harder worker, a better team guy, and does a TON of stuff to support the city of Pittsburgh. He tried very hard to be a great "Steeler".

I knew this last year, i said it last year, and i've seen nothing this year that would even come close to changing my mind. They gave the right guy the contract.

Wallace checklist:

1. Money
2. Money
3. Money
4. Make sure I do not get hurt so always fall down when a tackler is coming
5. Securing the ball every play

Tonight made me hope for the first time through all of this that Wallace isn't re-signed. WAY too many dropped passes by him and that's not the first time I've said that this year. IDK if it's because of his holdout because this never seemed to be a problem with him before, but he is not playing like he wants a big deal with the Steelers. To this point he has earned equal to or less than Brown's contract which was already significantly less than he initially asked for.

I was always in the "Wallace deserves more than Brown and is a better receiver" camp all through preseason but he's trying his hardest to lose my support.
