Default Re: Mike Wallace turned down $10 million a yr deal from Steelers

I hope we don't bring the cancerous Wallace back again. I'm tired of his Randy Moss-esque attitude and lack of effort. His skill set is speed and that's about it. He isn't a good enough blocker, he doesn't get open nearly enough, he's small and gets pushed around, and he has mediocre hands. I for one am tired of hm dragging ass and being a no show in big games. He can go to another team and they can deal with his crap.

32 TDs in four seasons... which is fifth best during that time period.

that is something we're going to need to replace if we want to be competitive. Especially if Miller isn't around at the beginning of the season. The Steelers are going to have to play it well to have a good start this season.

It is a what have you done for me lately league

Positions at which the Steelers declined in 2012, according to Pro Football Focus

Mike Wallace (No. 12 2011, No. 91 2012)


http://triblive.com/sports/steelers/...-2012-position

Mike Wallace

2012 Grade: -4.5
2012 Snaps: 852


Summary: The wheels fell off the gravy train for Mike Wallace over the past twelve months. Holding out for a better deal last offseason, the Steelers elected to give his money to Antonio Brown instead and let him play out the year. In the new, more conservative offense, Wallace wasnít half the threat he was in years past and his numbers took a major drop from 2010 and 2011. Wallace still has enough deep speed to scare any corner he comes up against, and may be able to run the top off a defense like no other receiver, but he has never developed the ability to run a complete route tree, and is limited by the number of routes he can effectively run.

That being said, teams value speed and game-breaking ability, and Wallace does have enough in his arsenal to be an effective weapon at all levels of the defense, even if he isnít the most complete receiver on offer. Wallace may have lost out on the huge pay day he was gunning for, but he should still receive a healthy contract from a team that hasnít been able to find that game-breaker.

Wallace is a home run hit but also a one trick pony and the good defenses take him out easy. Highest risk and medium reward for the occasional big play but when u need a first or need that corner end zone TD catch I don't see him making the catches sorry.

In a down year, he had 8 TDs.

Do not get me wrong: at times, I was screaming at the guy for dropping passes and/or not getting his feet in bounds... but, he still produced 8 TDs.

A lot of WRs have been the "first read", and did not produce as many TDs as Wallace did.

If not for his two drops (technically, one he did not get his feet down) in the end-zone, he would have had 10 TDs.

"One trick" or not... "complete" or not... attitude or not... he produced points.

That he did, but not $10 million dollars worth....... I've spent the last couple of weeks looking at last season ( I'm a bonified glutton for punishment), and a lot of drives stalled because of dropped passes. Wallace seems to have had his fair share. Obviously I don't expect them to catch them all, but when they are hit right between the numbers with nobody hanging on them, they got to make the catch. My blood pressure remaining at a safe level depends on it.

Trust me, I screamed his name and cursed his number many a drive. I remember one drive, on the sidelines, where he simply had to put both feet down... but, instead, took a HUUUGE step out of bounds, and ended the drive. WTF!?! Fitzgerald would have gotten five feet down.

Regardless, those TDs will be missed.
