Wallace and Mendenhall are both assholes who need to GO. Wish I had another jersey besides Wallace, oh how he fooled me....

Let him go.
Wallace has been targeted several times this season and has dropped the ball plenty.

I think the jury should still be out with Mendenhall. It waxs his first game back after a LONG downtime, have to expect some rust. It isn't like he was the only RB who couldn't hang on to the ball, so no need to single him out.

I keep in mind that he has had some descent years running the ball for us, even in Arians' nuetered scheme. So far, none of the current fan favorites like Dwyer or Redman has shown any ability to be THE GUY for 300+ carries per season.

Yes, he's dropped a few. We've also had fumbles and ints by others too. look, I'm not here to defend the guy but I will be objective in my critique of him and any other player who makes errors.

Overreacting. I don't you think you give up on both of these guys. They have the ability to churn it upfield at anytime and give you the splash play. Did people already forget about Wallace's TD in N.Y that single handily turned around our season (at the time) ? What about Mendenhall's T.D against Philly earlier in the season?

For the record, I ALWAYS mentioned Wallace as being SOFT AS A TISSUE. Antonio Brown, on that play in which Wallace didn't get his feet inbounds against Balty, would of climbed the defenders back, caught the ball, fucked the dudes mother and STILL got both feet in bounds. That's the difference between the 2. AB is a scrappy son of a bitch. Wallace is a speed demon who doesn't like contact.

So where does #17 go?

Contender or bottom feeder with $$$ to burn?

Don't sleep on Danny Snyder breaking the bank to get RGIII a deep threat - Wallace is your protype Snyder FA signing

Yeah, if professional football were a track meet, he'd be really awesome. Unfortunately, you have to play football, which means adjusting to the ball that's rarely will be thrown perfectly that far down the field. He's done that once this year. once.

I will be glad to see him leave and i will laugh at the puny contract he is going to get wherever he goes next season.
