I agree on what you've said about prior history with receivers

do you think Wallace has done enough to earn top money - especially if he ends up with same stats or a little less/more than last year? Not saying that is everything taken into consideration but if he stays on pace, he doesn't warrant top money IMHO. An upgrade? Heck yes - but not top money.

Also, don't you think if Smith, Ward, Farrior, McFadden, maybe Foote are gone that would open up some money for Wallace?

And honestly, with the emergence of Brown and Sanders, and the stability that Cotchery will bring as well, we won't need to beg for his services. We're basically winning without him already.
I wonder if thats the reasons he's not getting much thrown to him lately. Seems like Browns gettin the load now.

eh, I just think Ds have to pick their poison now more than ever

the great ones find ways to have huge days regardless if you are game planning for them or not

that lead changing TD catch v. Ravens is what I'd like to see more of - that was one heck of an effort he had to make to come back across to that side of the end zone to connect with Ben

I think you've got it backwards; I think most teams in the league could use him more and better than we're using him right now (or New England, who just learned a little lesson about bringing in free agent receivers). You think Holmgren wouldn't pay top dollar for him to be a Brown? Or Seattle? Or Houston, to play him across from Andre?

His options are limitless, and he will get beau coup bucks. Nothing we can do about it except overpay, and I don't see that happening.

First of all, Wallace is only going to be a restricted free agent next year, so he most likely will be kept around at the minimum of one more year. Then you have Hines Ward retiring and no guarantee that Jerricho Cotchery would re-sign with the Steelers, or if he would, if he would accept a contract that a Steelers team tight against the salary cap could afford.

Secondly, don't be so quick to push him out of the door. The fact of the matter is that a lot of success of the Steelers offense runs through the threat of the Wallace deep ball and teams responding by doubling teaming him and playing the secondary out of the box. This makes everything else the Steelers try to do more successful, and it gives the other receivers more opportunities to succeed against lesser defensive players. I don't think one could say for certain that Brown would be performing as he has been the past 7 weeks without Wallace being there.

I have heard rumblings of Wallace being somewhat disgruntled over his lack of production over the past several weeks, but not in such a way that it is a team distraction; it's more a young player wanting to be able to help his team and not delivering as well as he wants to.

Finally, I think it's hard to predict what the Steelers will do based on their past history. If you were to look at recent history, for example, you would think that the organization would do its best to keep him, as they have been much more consistent with keeping their stars around in the past decade. There is a litany of examples that don't even need to be named, even from just this past offseason.

He's just not a great blocker, its as simple as that. That doesn't mean he's a criminal.
Regardless, when his time comes to be a free agent, he is going to get GIGANTIC money thrown at him by likely multiple teams.

Exactly. Why would a team deep at the position even attempt to match offers he'll be getting elsewhere? I suppose they could tender him high, but even then I can think of more than a few teams that would consider him a bargain for a 1st-round draft pick. It could also backfire, since he knows he'll be getting the short end of it from the Steelers.

Why is everybody already saying Mike Wallace will not be with the steelers next year? only receiver we really have besides Mike is AP cause how many games has Sanders played this year? yeah not that much and Hines will not be here next year and Cotchery IMO will not be back... Mike Wallace will get his payday and he will not be like Holmes we only traded holmes is because we had Mike Wallace on the rise and he was not worth the money even tho he was a super bowl MVP...just stop hating on him cause he is not that great of a blocker SMH he makes plays and the last time i check thats all the really counts.
