Default Re: possible Wallace landing spots?

Wallace's first 4 season totals, especially TD's, the same as Fitz, more than Megatron, and way more than Andre Johnson. The difference is those 3 guys all started from day 1, Wallace didn't start as a rookie. The guy had a bad season for whatever reason, but so did Brown and Sanders. I love how everyone is in such a hurry to get rid of the one wr we have that scores td's and thinks it will be so easy to replace. I'm not saying break the bank, just find it funny everyone bitches the O doesn't score enough and everyone can't wait to get rid of, through his 1st 4 seasons, the most prolific scoring wr in the the past 10 seasons.

Steelers fans are so fickle ... I really hope they bring Wallace back

I have taken heat for saying the same thing. For some reason a lot of people here think heis useless and only hurts the team yet Brown is the next Jerry Rice or something. No clue were these people are coming from

I tend to like Wallace, he does command double teams a lot and that's important.

However, holding out when we were changing our offense and not staying focused did hurt our team. Does he have a bad attitude? I don't think so, and teammates seem to like him and I don't see us getting better without him in one season.

I would be in favor of keeping him, but to me the RB position is a higher priority.

I love Ben but let's not think that he throws 4500 yards and 35 touchdowns a year. As for the other receivers mentioned, I would take them over Wallace myself. All I'm saying is that a lot of people here seem to think he hurts the team for some reason and when we lose him there going to realize how good he was.

This. So much of this.

If Calvin Johnson had Ben throwing to him - dear Jesus, imagine his numbers. Same would could be said for Larry and Andre - if they had legitimate Quarterbacks throwing to them they'd have 2000+ yard seasons.

CJ almost had 2000 yards with Stafford as his Quarterback. Imagine what him and Ben could do.

Stafford had over 5000 yards with 41 touchdowns 2 years ago. This season he had right under 5000. When has Ben ever did that. If Wallace played for Detroit the last two years I could easilysay he would have 1600 yards each sseason

Their offense is also 'throw it deep to Calvin Johnson' and if Ben had a legitimate target like that with an offensive coordinator that didn't treat him like he was made of glass, he could easily have 5000 yards.

Our offensive line hasn't been great, but I think it has the potential to be now. It's time to use Ben effectively and properly now that he's in his prime. Let him throw it deep and make plays happen. Let Ben be Ben.
