But we won't have the "young money" crew anymore.
"Fast Money" will be gone.
We're doomed!

I just hope our recievers make a little effort catching the ball this year, Wallace will not be missed and as a matter a fact it will more than likely help the team and Ben. He spent to much time looking for the homerun ball with other recievers standing around wide open. I'm super glad he declined the offer.

I know people don't want to admit it, but there's a good chance we wouldn't have seen this collapse within the WR corps had the Steelers kept Hines Ward around for one more year. Brown and co. needed someone to hold their hands for a little while longer, and Wallace would not have considered the holdout if the Steelers had a veteran they could rely upon while he was gone. That was the basis of the holdout: they couldn't survive without him.

He has already said in not so many words he wants to be paid like Larry Fitzgerald. The thing is I would rather HAVE Larry Fitzgerald. I DON'T think he is going to get $10M a year elsewhere.

and for those thinking the Snyders and Jones are going to pay him - just remember, Snyder finally took the reigns off of Shanahan and let him start making some better decisions and Jones is ready to knock down their roster and rebuild. Will Mike find a job? Sure - but if he gets paid more it will only be slightly better than that and very likely only 60-70% of that.

The Patriots will absolutely not pay Wallace that. They have to settle with Welker if they even can and Welker is head and shoulders a better player (all around football player) and has a better work ethic and attitude.

Why the hell would the Ravens over pay for a guy like him when they get so much out of the SB winning corp they have. Sure - they might not be able to keep them all due to Flacco's contract - but now they have the strategy to win without cashing out for it.

Wallace will either be with a bottom feeder, with Arians in Arizona, Colts, or maybe even go to GB where Rogers (Jennings might be gone)and his coaches will NOT put up with his shit as much as Tomlin and co have. After his next team at this rate, Wallace might just find himself out of football.

I would L_O_V_E a Greg Jennings on our team. He is still fast and has waaay better route running abilities and will fight for the ball.

Do you really think we could afford Jennings though? I honestly dont.

I DO think Wallace will end up in Arizona.

oh hell no we can't afford Jennings, but that is the type of WR we need over this overly-hyped track star

I have a feeling Arians will continue the Steelers West tradition of taking from our scrap heap

Hard to say how Hines being around would have changed matters - by the end of 2011 Hines was the #5 receiver in terms of ability and keeping him around as a player-coach-motivator for what he wanted to be paid would have been tough if he could not lead by example on the field - at some point your younger players need to step up without adult supervision - some younger players assume that role as the next generation of leaders (Ward, Smith and Porter for the Steelers after 2001) and some do not (Burress). Wallace did not

What the playoffs showed to me was the happy talk earlier in the year about the Steelers having the best receiving corps in the NFL was a joke - in today's game you need some size at WR (Megatron, Julio Jones, Green) and the Steelers did not have that even on the days Wallace felt like playing
