I would be pissed because I would have to cut him loose then. I couldn't root for a fucking ratbird.

Wouldn't matter-- Joe Sacko only knows how to throw checkdowns to Ray Rice.

Then, on 3rd and 19 from the 50 after a holding call and slant pass tackle, he'll be open 20 yards down field, make the catch and get the first and move the chains.

That's what I figure Brown is, and for that, he is not over rated at all.

As for the Wallace, the kid has so much potential and just seems to not want to work hard and simply rely on his speed. He has to be better at getting jump balls, fighting for position on passes, coming back or going to the ball. The Best receivers aren't just fast, they make catches in traffic, fight for the ball, and then, do something with it when they have it. He could be that, but isn't yet.
I agree completely. AB is a replacement for Ward. He's the guy I want the ball thrown to when it matters. He's number 1.

Ive always like Brown better than wallace even though wallace puts up the stats. The offense needs both of them on the field. Wallace is your deep threat while AB is over the middle. How many punt returns for tds has he had gotten called back this season?

Can Wallace really be considered a deep threat even these days? He is a one trick pony and that one trick seems to be fading.

I mean that in the sense that even when he is able to get open deep he drops the ball. Obviously he still has his speed, but he has stone hands.

I don't know if I want to say he's overrated, but I definitely think we gave him that huge contract prematurely. I like the guy, and I won't go as far as to completely agree with some of the arguments presented against him in this thread, but he still hasn't really lived up to #1 receiver status.

Yes he makes some great 3rd down conversions. Yes he's made some great plays in the playoffs. Yes, he more often than not comes up with a clutch catch when we need him to. But when was the last time he took over a game? When was the last time he scored a receiving TD? When was the last time you sat there after a game and said "Wow, Antonio Brown made a HUGE difference today"?

He has the potential and yes, I would take him over Mike Wallace at this point, but he is hardly a #1 receiver at this stage in the game. He's a great playmaker who is reliable to get open and make a 10-yard catch when we need someone to, but not much more yet. I'm not sure many other teams in the league would have awarded this guy a $40+ million contract at this stage in his career, I still think that was done more as a knee-jerk reaction to getting fed up with Wallace, and I still think it is the most questionable thing our FO has done in a while. I'm sure 10 years from now it will be viewed as the right decision but right now it just seems like we jumped the gun a little.

or throw the ball up and beg for PI calls lol.

if they signed wallace i'd be stoked, especially if they broke the bank.

i would pay money to see this scrub get blown up by ryan clark. oh man, totally worth a 15 yard penalty. I'd even mail $200 to him to help pay his fine

C'mon! Brown is legit adn he is a gamer. Shows up and plays hard. Even without the n umbers, he at least LOOKS like he's trying as ahrd as he possibly can. Reminds me of Hines with his smile, unlike Wallace's fake smile, and he loves being a Steeler. What more do you want? Hines was never anyone's "#1" receiver but I would love for Brown to come anywhere close to his type of a career. And NO, I'm not calling him Hines I Just see some similarities.
