I would even be willing to keep Mendy for the cheap, so the Steelers can draft more defense in the early rounds. You can get away with inexperienced youth on the defensive side. Look at Cortez and Lewis. Youth in the NFL is becoming more and more the talent now then experience. Especially in the skilled positions.
Getting Fitz here would be a wet dream! I just don't see it happening with the salary cap issues, but I'm with you on this one brother!

The only thing Wallace has over those guys is Speed. Everything else there is to know and understand about the game of football, Wallace doesn't stand a chance.

"He's about as exciting as it comes. He gets down field faster than me and Lynn did. As for being the long ball receiver, that's his forte. Swann and I thought we were longball players too, but we couldn't run like that.
"Wallace has potential to get better. That doesn't lessen what he's done, though. He has a lot of talent as a receiver already." --- John Stallworth.

-Stallworth spoke very highly of Wallace.

-At no point did I say Wallace was better than Stallworth or Swann.

-No one has compared Wallace's start to Ward's start even though they played in the same era and many people think Ward is the best Steelers receiver ever.

-Wallace compares to his peers the same way Swann and Stallworth compared to their peers- all of them were just outside of top 5 for their eras.

-Swann and Stallworth had the best Steelers quarterback ever throwing to them.

This discussion is futile anyways.

Limas Sweed was the greatest Steelers WR of all time.

If we're really going to compare stats in the first four seasons, you should at least note that Swann, Stallworth, Ward, and Brown didn't really play in their rookie seasons, while Wallace was the #3 receiver and got a decent amount of looks.

Yeah... because Wallace was awesome from the get go. Wallace had Holmes and Ward in front of him (even though Ben has never had any weapons to throw to) otherwise he would have started and put up some really monster numbers.

You guys can laugh at me now but I will have the last laugh when Wallace gets his first NFL MVP award and when he breaks all Jerry Rice's records.

Ah yes.

I remember after LaDainian had his 33 TD season (2006), everyone was saying that he'd hold EVERY record for RBs when he retired. I loved LT, but I kept saying that longevity records are not as easily attainable as one thinks.

Some day, some RB mights surpass Emmitt's record... or Eric's record... or LT's record... or, maybe even all three (very doubtful, but possible).

But, NO ONE will EVER surpass Jerry Rice.

Rice's records are an aberration... a dream... never to be repeated by any human.
