Default Mike Wallace not discouraged by booing

we haven't had a new Mike Wallace thread for at least a day or two now, so...


Steelers notebook: Receiver Wallace not discouraged by booing

By Alan Robinson
Updated: Thursday, December 13, 2012

Mike Wallace wasn‘t surprised at being booed after dropping a downfield pass Sunday, saying he knew he would be under scrutiny all season because of his training-camp holdout.

“Anything I do is going to be magnified, good, bad,” Wallace said. “It‘s doesn‘t really matter. I just got to do what I need to do and handle my business and not give anybody a reason to say anything.”

And a big play will elicit cheering?

“Some (fans) would,” Wallace said. “I think they‘re out to get me a little bit.”

• Are the Steelers in the right frame of mind to shake off a season filled with surprising losses and make the playoffs? Wallace believes they are. A potential unrestricted free agent, Wallace might be playing his last few regular-season games in Pittsburgh, and the receiver doesn‘t want to leave without playing more January games. “We have three games to go hard and a playoff race to make and just try to do what we can,” Wallace said. “If we handle all of our business, all of those things will go away. Winning is the only thing that matters, and it makes everything better. If we win games and make plays, everything else will go out the window.”

And he shouldn't be. You are a grown man and if you have to take things like a man. He is handeling it the right way. If he lets it get to him it will only get worse for him and the team.

That said, as fans I think we should support our players on the field all in the name of winning. Off the field we can grumble all we want.

I don't take it as a "I can't let the booing get to me", and more like "I'll play like mediocre as much as I want and I don't care what they think".

Yeah, the whole "the fans are out to get me" thing is lame and tired. That is not a very humble attitude that a struggling player who wanted more money should be adopting.

The solution to that is easy enough for him-- catch a few balls amd make some plays and the fans' memories can be very short.....

Last I checked, he has caught quite a few balls, leads the team in receps, yards and TDs. Yet the drama continues.

I'm counting the days when this clown and that other worthless clown at running back no longer wear a Steelers uniform.

Fans aren't booing and scrutinizing you because you held out of camp. Fans are booing you because you are dropping more balls than you are catching. You can't catch a ball with your hands and are completely worthless unless the ball is delivered directly into your chest. Fans are booing you cause you've fumbled balls, dropped at least 4 guaranteed TD passes, dropped at least ten first down passes and your drops have led to a large number of punts, and or turnovers. Fans are booing you because you've created more harm for this team than you have production. Trust me Mike, weather you made camp or not, the lack of dedication and discipline you've displayed this season would still be getting boo'ed.

Catch the ball and you don't have to worry about it.

This dude is a clown anymore. I read things everyday from him that make me wonder where the hell did the old Mike Wallace go?!?!?! It seems like he's changed over night. Or maybe this is the real him and he was puting on a facade? So disappointing!

Or do the Steelers just need to hire Tony Robbins to talk to these guys before games to get them ready to play ?
