Only sign Wallace if the money is right.

Mendy, on the other hand, pack his shit and show him the door. We need to draft someone at HB.

Shit rolls down hill. Bad, predictable schemes yield bad results. Players don't call play, they just run them. If the fans treat Mike with disdain, what are they gonna do for Ben and others on the offensive side of the ball?
wallace, according to alot of fans that wanted to give him 10+ at the beginnig of the season, stated that he was an all around great wr. he should have had no problem putting up big numbers this year if that was the case. he has been targeted more this year than any other.

And you actually believe that bullshit you just typed Don't you? C'mon man get real. Haley's offense sucked this year and so did our ability to score.

Haley's offense was starting to click until Ben the KC game, when Ben got hurt. It never got back on track from that point on.
Receivers dropped balls and fumbled far too often to have the sustained drives needed to make this offense work.
2 things the offense was doing that it never did under Arians was keep Ben upright and use Heath Miller as a receiving threat.
There were 2 turning points for this season. The Cincy game in October had things heading in the right direction and then the KC game and Ben's injury turned in back downward. We were surviving all of the other injuries, but losing Ben and the fact that he is never right when he comes back was the death blow for this team this year.

Maybe those 3 games were flukes...

I'm on the fence about the team's bringing back Mendenhall. That one could easily go either way - i'd probably lean toward the team letting him go if i had to guess.

As for Wallace : won't be back. Gone.
Ranking receivers doesn't matter a bit. Plenty of teams throughout the NFL spend recklessly : and they will continue to do so. He'll have NO problem getting a big contract, a bigger one than he'd ever get here.
Whether he's not the perfect fit here, or whether Haley's system doesn't cater to him to the utmost degree - we can all argue that til the cows come home.
Bottom line : its not a great fit and we now have TONS - and tons - and tons of money we need to spend elsewhere.

That's a really good point. No matter what ppl think of Wallace, and even if the team wants to keep him, they haven't been know to keep a lot of highly paid WR's together for long.

I think that Wallace is a lot more important than Mendenhall. Brown isn't a #1 he's a #2 receiver, and Sanders certainly isn't a #2 he's a slot guy at best. Wallace hasn't done much to impress me this season but it would be scary to go into next season with those 2 guys at the top of the wr depth chart.

I'm happy to see Wallace back at the right price. Probably not gonna happen though, someone will overpay for the one trick pony.

Who knows with Mendenhall - I am stunned Tomlibn activated him after Mendenhall blew off teh San Diego game

With Mendenhall, Wallace and Ben being unhappy about either $$$ or a departed coach, the attitude of this team was awful all season - I am glad it ended without a blowout playoff loss
That's because the standard is the standard except when it's not. I think we can all acknowledge that.

Please please please don't bring back this fumbling fool.

Mendenhall won't get a big contract, so if he's cheap enough I'd be in favor of bringing him back.

Wallace, I don't know. If the FA crop was better I'd be more reluctant to letting him walk, but outside of Dwayne Bowe, I don't really like anyone. Although it seemed like Wallace didn't really want to be here this season...I don't know I just got that vibe. Like he was still sore from us not paying up last offseason.
