Brown and Sanders are both extremely good as well and lately have had better hands, you gotta figure bens get atl east 5 more good years around him so I say we surround him with the best weapons possible and hope for a couple superbowl titles. I know a couple weeks ago the superbowl, even the playoffs seemed unlikely, but we have played very well ever since the second half of the begles game. We keep playing like this and we could make a run this year, beating the giants this weekend would solidify that point and everyone will be saying were a contender

Agreed with the Cardinals - they guessed wrong with Leinart and guessed wrong again with Kolb

But Stafford has a gun - WR is not the position to put your chips on

If you sign Wallace for what he wants, you may have to part with other players in a couple years. The OL is finally starting to shape up. I'd hate to see another team sign away a good lineman because all the money is tied up in Ben and the WRs.

Not to mention, the defense needs some retooling.

Wallace isn't playing with full effort because he doesn't want to jeopardize getting hurt for his big contract. Anyone who pays him 10 mil per are idiots and wasting their money. he is a 7 mil per player, and that's pushing it.

Ed Bouchette's Steelers chat transcript: 10.30.12

TUESDAY, 30 OCTOBER 2012 WRITTEN BY ED BOUCHETTE

Nate: Ed, halfway through the season and it seems Wallace has positioned himself as Ben's favorite receiver the past 2-3 weeks (even with drops). In your opinion, what is the likelihood he is back next year with a signed contract (not franchised)?

Ed Bouchette: I'm on record believing that Wallace will sign elsewhere as a free agent.

Kordells Revenge: Hi Ed, great chat as always. I think I finally get why they didn't overpay for recievers in the past (ie let Burress and Washington walk, traded Holmes, etc), but what do you think happens with their current WR corp?

Ed Bouchette: Antonio Brown is signed. Emmanuel Sanders is restricted. Both will be here in 2013, but as I said I think Wallace will find a better deal elsewhere.

Based on his play this year and the amount of money he's supposedly wanting to be paid per year, what makes everybody sure that another team will sign him.

unfortunately, for every smart team such as the Patriots and Steelers, there are plenty of DUMB ones too.
Just ask Buffalo Bill fans right now. They just threw more money at one defensive player this year through free agency than what their entire franchise is worth and are getting next to NOTHING for it. We see this time and time again with stupid teams.

He'll get more than we will give him, thats for sure......although i don't think it will be what he was asking for. (but then again, just to repeat, there are plenty of stupid teams out there)

It's stunning just how little Wallace seems to want to cash in next year. The drops are mind-boggling. And there's no Al Davis around anymore to sign him to a mega-contract based purely on his Super Bowl MVP title this season.
