Default RIAN WALLACE- does anyone know of this guy?

9,7,&5 years ago he probably wouldve been known as gildon, porter, or foote. does anyone have any worthy info on him? he has been following the same footsteps as the aformentioned and has been slowly brought along by the same coaching staff.

i know he had a late int and td late last year in garbage time. shouldnt he be considered as a potential contributor? i would think so. if not, what the hell is he doing on the team?

maybe we dont have to go wild for a player like bunta cain, if someone just as good is already sitting on the roster at a much cheaper price. history says wallace should be good and about ready to step in, in an increased role in about a year or 2. but then again, i havent scouted pre season games on him or anything.

anyone have any input?

5rd draft choice for us 2 years ago and he has been grooming. He is very strong and has some good on field speed. But you can read up on him far as coming out of college here.

i know all that stuff, but cant figure out why he hasnt even been mentionned even though people laud the capabilities of the steelers to just plug in the "next LB".

im not saying hes the next lance briggs or anything, but hes gotta be better than blowing a wad of cash on some flavor of the week like banta cain right?

Well, I'm pretty sure it was a good choice, and from what I've heard he has good speed.

just another average LB the steelers seem content with. i guess i shouldn't say average. he hasn't really played at all so it's difficult to say if he is average, good or pathetic. but to me it just seems he is another average LB to add to a team full of average LBs.

every year the steelers ignore their most important area on defense. will they ignore it again?

If by ignoring it, you mean they dont spend $25 million on an old man like London Fletcher or dont guarantee $20 million to peezy......then yes i guess they are "ignoring" it.

I am not over-thrilled with what i have seen of Rian Wallace, but I would have to re-swallow my own vomit if we wasted a bunch of money on the wrong FA.

I wouldnt say we have an average line backing group..
If you knew much about the steelers then you would know that our "average" line backers did not give up ONE onehundrend rushing yard game all year.........

Very Good point, I would not call our LB core average.

True, but our LB core isn't as good as were used to.
