No way. It ain't his fault he is fast. Imagine being TE who can catch really well then being asking to block constantly and not be an option for receptions. Said TE asks to be thrown to more - is there a problem with that?

Wallace's asset is his speed, he wants to use it. I don't see a problem with that. No matter what these guys do somebody rags on them. He wants to run fast and catch the football.

My opinion is that they do need to do throw deep to him more. My guess is Haley is waiting to spring the trap. The "One trick pony" gag is getting old. Not only that, he is a great receiver. He has made some great catches this year. If he did not hold out we would not even be having this conversation.

he's not great, if he was, another team would have jumped at the chance to give up a 1st rounder for him. they would have jumped at the chance to give him fitzgerald money. fitz is great, wallace isn't.

As much as I love Haley's offense, the fact that Wallace isn't going deep is a problem that needs to be fixed. He's arguably the fastest guy in the NFL and we're not using him to his full ability. He's getting the ball 8 - 9 times a game which is great, but he's getting it on underneath crossing routes for 7 yards everytime. Let him go deep and force double coverage, letting Brown and Sanders run free underneath.

I don't understand why he's not going deep. Exploiting a weak Giants secondary with the speed of our WRs is something an advantage we have to pounce on.

I'm guessing well stay heavy with the dink and dunk until very late in the season and playoffs until we run the ball heavily and let Wallace turn on the burners.

Sounds like you are describing Heath Miller.

Of course Heath has only done what is asked of him for 8 years without saying a word about how playing under Arians offense depressed his stats

There is a problem in saying what a wonderful player you are for doing what is best for the team while complaining about not getting to run your favorite route more often

wallace see's his big fat payday slipping away with every game. less than 450 yards 7 games in. not the kinda numbers that'll get him on GM's speed dial. if he's going to get anything that resembles fitz money he's gonna have to put up stats like he had the first half of last season (700 yds 8 games) to be fresh in GM's minds come free agency time. it doesn't matter how you started that people remember..its how you finished.

In order for Wallace to be a deep threat, we first need to make teams believe that we have a genuine running game; something we haven't really had since Wallace has been here.

This season, we did better in the running game but it's been pretty much running by committee which may work in terms of yards but is not a real threat, but with Dwyer beginning to show that he might just be "The Guy" we've been looking for since Bussie retired, that may change.

If Dwyer does indeed prove to be Bettis V2.0 and we really do use him in a Bettis-like way, we THEN will have a legitimate run threat which will force the safeties and the CB's to honor the run and play closer to the box which will THEN allow Wallace to do what he does best.

Having Wallace is great, but without a running game that gains the respect of the competition, it's sort of like having a nice doorknob but no house to go with it.
I think Dwyer can change that and Wallace can start earning his money.

We'll see...

i want him to go deep more, too. Look, I think he wants too much money, but that doesn't mean we can't use him to do what he does best.
