Yeah, the best, ranked #30 WR in the League. I'd say he's not the worst, that'd be more accurate.

No, I'm a guy and I'm not prejudiced against women either. I don't think what I wrote makes me bitchy. I stated facts.

Wallace is and should be gone. He ended his career in Pitt in August. He played his cards poorly and, from what I understand, against the advice of his agent. He misinterpreted his worth and the Steelers made their play. And IMO gave the right guy the money. Wallace's demands were ridiculous and he will get a ton of jack thrown at him from someone but it wont be anywhere near where he was looking for! We will need to find a true #1 WR but we have some damn good #2,#3 and #4 guys. AB, Sanders, Cotch and Burress. Hope they all stay and we go WR fairly early in the draft.

Are you sure?

Browns numbers are nearly identical to Wallace's this season, being the number two option and missing 2 more games than Wallace. He returns punts and kicks to boot and all Wallace can do is have a self-pity party and drop balls while Brown brings it every game.

Anyone catch AB run up and tackle that dude on the fake punt today? Wallace would never be in a situation like that, but if he were to be, he'd do everything possible to avoid having to tackle that guy.

You didn't answer the question. What does Wallace bring besides his 40 time?

The Steelers offered $10,000,000 to Wallace, but he didn't want it. Could you imagine paying $10,000,000 to a player who deliberately does not try on some plays?

By more do you mean more drops?

Wallace is no longer a problem. He is a UFA.

It's no ones fault but Wallace's for refusing to take the Steelers $10,000,000 a season offer.

Nobody says much about Brown because he tries. Wallace flat out doesn't try at times. Remember the 3rd down pass from Batch which would have kept the last drive of the game going? Wallace didn't even attempt to catch it.

Really? This was his contract year and he came up lame. If he doesn't try during his contract then why would he try after getting paid?
