I see Wallace having a big game today, saw some pretty good chemistry brewing between him and Ben last week.

Could be his last big important game with the team. Hope he has a great game.

Just say yes to drugs.....oh wait, wrong thread!

Nah, I agree with WVABE here - I think there's definitely a good chance here for him to really step up his game. The trajectory of his career may be riding on just how well he plays today, making this a particularly game for more than few reasons.

Wallace gonna' love it here.
If your team wants a soft receiver that drops more balls than he catches, go at him.

Yes, Brady and Manning have dealt with interchanging parts..... that actually have pedigree. If you replace Wallace with another deep threat, then you can get away with that. If you replace him with a practice squad scrub, get used to more bubble screens, because the Steelers won't be going down field much.
Replace Wallace with another WR with a 4.3+ 40 time. What else does Wallace bring?

He did more than Sanders or Brown (the guy that actually got paid) this season, despite putting up below average numbers. To me, that says Wallace is not the biggest problem with this receiving core.

I'll start by saying I should probably run Mike Wallace's fan club, but that being said, he hasn't earned a big payday so far. By so far, I mean throughout his career. People are bringing up the point that he can now run intermediate and underneath routes, but what did that bring him? 800 yards and change with a ton of dropped balls. That alone won't bring him the payday he wants from a legitimate contender, but I suppose a team like Miami that is sitting on 50 million in cap space wants to give Tannehill a deep option can snag him.

If he wants to win a Super Bowl, he'll stay here. If not and he wants to play for the cash, then it's goodbye. We don't want or need selfish players on this team and sadly, that's what he has become this last year. Besides, despite what the common theme is, this WR class isn't shallow or lackluster in talent - quite the opposite. Guys like Da'Rick Rogers have character concerns but is possibly the best receiver in this draft and we can get him in the third round. If we're willing to spend high picks on receivers, we could potentially end up with Robert Woods in the second round and Da'Rick Rogers in the third and have the youngest and most explosive WR core we've ever had.

There isn't reason to panic if he decides to leave because, ultimately, speed can be replaced. Woods and Rogers bring more than speed - they bring consistent hands that can make big catches when needed. I'll take that over blinding speed any day.

I feel wallace is worth 8-9 million a year. To say he has done nothing to earn that is just insane. If he dosnt deserve that then what does Brown deserve? Wallace has much better stats and makes millions less then brown yet nobody says a word about him. I like Brown and Wallace together for the next 10.years but nobody can say Brown has earned that big contact yet. I think he can and I know wallace can earn his.
Like I always said, I would keep wallace for 9million a year, and any more I would let him walk. If he does leave we need a #1 or #2 wr that can start next year because we can't win all season with Cotchry, Sanders and Brown.

I would love to see Wallace back. Hate on him if you want, he's clearly the best receiver on the team.
