yea, what is maddening is that we won SBs with Ward, Wilson, El & Holmes, Ward, & Washington.

We can win one with Brown, Sanders, Cotchery or whoever is in the third spot

Steeltheone, how many time are you going to bring up that stupid argument about mendy having more yards and tds, he was the starter, i imagine he will have more yards, dwyer and redman have not been the starter for several years. This is the stupidest argument i have seen and you continually bring it up. If the other 2 are the starters the would have the numbers and not mendy.

there just isn't any arguments left to be made - he and Wallace are done - dead men walking, finished. Time to hope they either give enough shit to go out with style or even possibly play for the Steelers for dirt cheap (longshot) or just hope we have other guys that go in and perform well in their place

Stats are great when taken out of context, aren't they? Of course a starter's stats are going to be better than a backup's. It's like the following scenarios.

Alex Smith has great numbers in San Fran over the last 2 years. They are much better than Kaepernick's numbers. Alex Smith should be the starter!

Colin Kaepernick has great numbers in San Fran over the last 2 weeks. They are much better than Smith's. Colin Kaepernick should be the starter!

2 different statements. Both true. Obviously, the one that started more games in both of those scenarios put up the better numbers.

No excuse for the drop passes, but Wallace is not being used properly. Have we even run the crossing pattern that Wallace broke out for a td a few weeks ago? doubtful.

Ben is whipped? So if he goes to the clubs, he gets ripped, if he stays home, he is basically a *****? Seriously?

Yes, the caching staff is proving a point to Wallace they will not pass deep to him? Come on man! That is as dumb as someone saying Ben is whipped.
Sorry I could not find a sarcasm icon to put after the post

A classic for sure!

the offense we run seems to be a better fit for sanders and brown than wallace. short passing game that relies on the WR to make the plays and move the chains.

with all the speed wallace has, he is not good at YAC unless he's behind the defense, he doesn't like getting hit and runs scared over the middle. brown and sanders don't do that, and seem to get open without needing 20 seconds to stretch the defense on a go route.

what this offense needs is a running back. one of our guys to step up or draft an upgrade next year

and we don't need wallace to stretch a defense. both brown and sanders are 4.4 speed guys who can get by db's

Damn good point, that really is a silly argument. Kind of like saying that Bruce Arians took us to two super bowls.

give me sanders over wallace anyday, they should already pencil him in as the #2 imo

in the words of mike singletary "I want players who want to win"
I don't remember that policy helping Singletary out too much during his unusually short stint.
