I mean, does that even deserve an answer? I don't even know if he's being serious right now. I can't tell.
You know what? Neither can I.

Numbers don't always tell the story. We have two players the number lie about and Wallace is one of them. Let some one else blow big money on him we will be better off

What's this "he had a down year" stuff? No he didn't, he was "down" for the entire 2nd half of the 2011 season too. That's why I and many others didn't think he deserved a contract this past off season. He proved that himself in 2012. I know some like Wallace a lot, but the excuse making time has ran out. If your young and wanting undeserved money then you better be in the process of turning yourself into a household name, not a highlight reel shame. Can't hang on to it, can't run with the ball without fumbling, and can't get open for shit when Ben is scrambling. Has he made some long plays in the past? Yes. Is he a "deep threat"? Theoretically yes. But a full season and a half is too long to be MIA and be considered a top Steeler WR, let alone the best of all time. Hines Ward, in his last 8 games as a starter, produced roughly the same "stats" as Wallace did the last 8 games of that same season. Wallace is a sub par WR with top notch capability, but since he already thinks he's worth more then $10mil, it's likely his attitude will continue to keep him an under performer, especially since he won't be catching passes from a top QB like Ben anymore.

tanda,

While agree with your post, the salient question is, are we going to be a lesser club without him? IMO, the answer is yes. Whether or not we can afford him, or whether we should afford him is entirely another one. A front loaded 3 yr contract to minimize the cap hit, at about $7.5 - $8 mill top sounds about right. If somebody wants to pay him more, let 'em.

very good point. Let's be honest unless we hit the jackpot at the WR position in the Draft, we are going to miss Wallace.

have to disagree - I'll miss him like I missed Santonio Holmes - who was a SB MVP and most got over pretty quickly when we still went to a SB appearance without him and our secondary pretty much rendered him useless against us

I'll miss him like I missed El, Wilson, and Washington - who all actually helped us win a SB - sorry, WRs have come and gone.Can't agree my good sir.

true, a lot of us as fans won't miss him. What I mean is the team will miss what he brings to the field.

I actually am afraid of losing our speed for YAC with the short stuff - seemed to be turning into a real bread and butter set of plays for Wallace, even though him and Ben wanted the low % deep stuff - see Wallace's Giants TD. I have faith that "good enough" speed can be found elsewhere though

we could all be pissing and moaning and he ends up staying on the cheap - who the heck knows - we got a couple weeks before the exodus, right?

I can not believe what I am hearing. This is blasphemy. Are you comparing El, Wilson and Washington to the Michael Jordan of the NFL? Mike Wallace is the fastest and most handsome receiver in the game today! In no way is there another player on the Steelers let alone the entire NFL who can do what he does. Wallace is irreplacable. There, I said it.
