If Mike Wallace was released and was signed by the Ravens, how would you all feel? Honestly.

Jesus, people find the stupidest things to complain about.
It really isn't flawed logic at all. One of the game's elite WRs put up the same scoring production in one game as Brown did in 33. Think about that for a minute.
.
Brandon Marshall's contract you ask? 5 years 47M. Gee, that's pretty close to Antonio Brown's 5 year 42M. I guess it IS OK to compare them.

Exactly. I would feel it would be pretty hard to cover underneath routes with Torrie Smith and Mike Wallace blowing the top off the coverage.

When you put it like that, it kind of sucks

The problem with Wallace is his attitude and lack of effort. I don't question his talent. I personally think he doesn't fit into this offense as well as Brown, Sanders and Miller at TE. He appears to be pouting and has shot himself in foot as far as new contract. To answer your question I would be disappointed if he went to Ravens, now if he went to the Rams I could care less. If Steelers could keep him for decent price fine, but he is not worth 10 mill a year. Brown a better option in this offense, hell Sanders is better option in this offense. You cannot expect to be rewarded in a contract year when you drop as many passes as he has , and the guy rarely makes a great catch.

I think Wallace will go to one of the high dollar teams like Dallas or Washington. He seems to be all about the dollars and those owners have no qualms about spending the money to try to buy a championship. I hope one of them gets him if we can't sign him. I doubt at this point the Steelers will be willing to franchise tag him. But stranger things have happened.

i wouldn't be shocked to see Wallace go anywhere - the Ravens would love any chance they could get to take away one of our guys and try to show us up with him

Absolute rubbish. With just the stats you posted alone-- that is a 16 YPC average. Also, he was still the #3 or #4 receiver at the time, so he is not going to get as many touches or red zone opprtunities. If the QB does not target him in the redzone-- he sin't going to get TDs.

Keep in mind, he matched the #1 WR's stats in his first season while still playing as our #3 or #4. He broke records for being the first to rack up 1000 yards receivng and on kick returns. The only record Wallace is going to break this year is most drops in a season.

Also, if you still aren't convinced about how much of our offense AB is responsible for-- how well has our WR corps been doing since he got injured? It looks to me like Antonio Brown opens things up for Wallace, not the other way around.

AB is the best WR on our roster right now, by a long shot.

Brown is pretty damn good, but he is a bit overrated. Obviously Wallace is and honestly I can care less where he goes. I'd prefer it not be to Baltimore or NE, but Brady can't and doesn't throw the long ball and Baltimore already has their speedster, so as long as he's not in Pittsburgh next year WITH a big contract then I'll be happy. I actually think he's towards the bottom of the WR depth chart, he can't hang on to s***.

I wonder how much Brown being out hurt Leftwich and Batch. Seemed like nobody but Miller could get open, with Sanders occasionally squeaking out.I don't think Brown is a #1 WR, but neither is Wallace. I'd be fine with Sanders/Brown/Cotchery/Burress next year...Brown and Cotchery are already locked up for next year and Sanders and Burress will be cheaper then Wallace. I know Burress isn't a long term solution, but I think the Rooney's are thinking "championship now while Ben is still here!", and Burress is a bigger advantage in the next 2 years then Wallace IMO. No doubt Wallace has much more potential and played great about a year ago, better then Burress, but we already have tons of speed, we need a big target and a red zone beast, and that's Plax.

Wow, my last paragraph just showed how high our expectations are as Steeler fans and how spoiled we are: "I'd be FINE WITH Sanders/Brown/Cotchery/Burress next year". A lot of teams would be happy if they had two of them. And as for the argument that Brown doesn't show up in the playoffs, go Youtube "antonio brown helmet catch". He was playing as a #3 or #4 WR at that time and still made plays. We don't even make it to the AFC Champ game in 2010 if not for AB.
