both bring different skill sets.

i dont think anyone can make judgements on wallac's character based on "on the field" performance.
I'm not making judgement of his character off the field, I don't care what he does off the field as long as he's not in trouble, but I don't believe that his skill set is all that great. I will comment that his on the field character seems like it's "Me First"

We're not using Wallace properly, and as big a fan as I am of Mikey, I don't think he has a place in this offense anymore. If we're not going to let him go deep and make a play on the ball then he needs to go somewhere else where he'll be used properly. If we need underneath receivers and value tight ends, then we need to grab someone like Woods in the draft to replace him. As much as I hate to say it, I doubt he comes back to the Steelers next year and it won't be because we won't match the money another team will.

The problem is he hasnt been making a play on the ball, lately it seems if the ball is not perfectly placed in his hands he wont even try for it. If he was dropping passes and trying for the hard catches he wouldnt get so much flak, but his effort is pathetic, especially for someone demanding a huge contract, doubly so for someone in a contract year.

Yay, Tomlin finally found his balls and demoted the slackers.

No doubt - but IMO Tomlin had seen enough of Wallace's attitude since mid-2011.

At some point rational teams have to wonder why they would break the bank for #17 (which of course means it may be one of the irrational team owners (Jerry Jones/Danny Snyder) from whom Wallace will get his payday.)
