Default Re: Mike Wallace Has Likely Played His Last Game For The Steelers

i'd like to just get someone opposite Brown that epitomizes hard work and would really value the chance to be a Steeler over this me-me-me shit. You take care of your job and be the best you can be at it, the rest of the stuff will take care of itself. It amazes me that Wallace learned absolutely nothing from Plax and then Holmes. 3rd disappointing receiver in a decade.

If Wilson and Washington were our #3s on SB teams, I think we can win one with Cotchery getting more time while grooming a rookie. Hell - we might actually have someone with hands if he is in there. I can't stress this enough: Fight to separate and possess every single opportunity.

I agree Holmes was a lot better than Wallace is.
Holmes was better than Brown too

Hmmm, let me see your checklist here, since I have seen every Steelers game the last decade:

1. Disappearing acts constantly, pulling himself from punt return duty:

I have no clue what you are talking about. I do not remember him disappearing when it mattered and I have not a clue what you are talking about with the pulling himself from punt duty. I have watched all the games, I would have remember this if it was that bad.

2. Sanchez kicking him out of a meeting:

Are you freakin serious? Is this the same Sanchez we all know? Or is is Sanchez in a Tom Brady suit? I do not think I need to comment further on this.

3. Starting shit with his teammates:

With the Jets? the hell does that have to do with the Steelers? If I had teammates like Fart Scott and Mark Sanchez, I would start shit with them too for sucking ass. I do not remember him having fights or arguments with Hines Ward or Big Ben.

Here is my list:

Super Bowl MVP. Punt Return in the playoffs to steam the momentum SD had when they scored a TD on a long pass to go 7-0. Clutch catch and run in the AFC title game to put the Steelers ahead for good. Game winning TD to finished Bill Cowher's career off on a winning note.

Misc:

He played his arse off, blocked down field, blocked for the running backs.

I could go on, but I do not have that kind of time.

I think too many people around like to sit up on their high horses and point fingers on peoples lives as if they do not do dumb shit too. Holmes smoked weed, got into scuffles. You are telling me most guys do not do that at some point in their lives?

All I know is, when Sunday came, he balled. And he showed up in the biggest games to boot. So, there you go.

I think this was a valuable season for Wallace. I'd like to give him another chance. He did take all the criticism well and I think he grew a bit. He never threw the coaches under the bus either.

I'm not sad to see him go as much I am sad to see the talent lost. I still think he can be one of the better receivers in the league.

Good luck!

There might be a few bad throws by Ben in there, but either way, that's a lot of dropped passes.

I just asked my brother if he'd want Wallace on the Pats and he said,

"Not with that shitty attitude he has. Great, he can run in straight lines and sometimes catch the ball but if you ask him to run simple routes, he can't catch shit. Let him go to Miami."

and I thought that summed up what the overall thinking in this thread is.

Not sure why everyone thinks he'd go to the Patriots. There's no way in hell Brady is going to tolerate a receiver that can't run short routes properly and get quick separation. Really, what's one 60 yard completion every other week going to do for their team? Days when Wallace feels like making effort they'll win by 28 instead of 21?
