Default Sweed or Wallace

I think we need to make Mike Wallace the #3 receiver over Limas Sweed, to me Sweed still has not measured up to his potential and Mike Wallace is already showing the potential and what he can do for us.

Limas Sweed didn't have a single ball thrown his was last night (at least none that I saw). Wallace had three catches and was targeted four our five times.

Sweed was also covered by the other teams third best corner, Wallace the other team's fourth or fifth. There is a big drop off on most teams from their nickel corner and their dime corner.

Sweed won the #3 spot outright by outperforming Wallace and McDonald in the preseason and it's going to take more than one game in the regular season to unseat him.

lol, lets not get nuts over the first game of the season. like previous poster said, there is a reason sweed was appointed #3. if this trend continues for the next couple weeks, then sure, why not swap em for a week or two and see what happens.

Wooo hooo it was the first game of the season. Sweed did not have one ball throw his way last night and Wallace had 3 his direction which shows nothing. Wallace is a rookie which gives Sweed the nod at #3 for now. Lets wait till toward the end of the season and who proves themselves worthy of that spot.

As long as we have a 3rd receiver who is consistently contributing, I don't care what the back of their jersey says.

Thanks for the logic. I was warming up with the WWF folding chair until I saw this.

No problem man. Save the chair smackin for the Bears trolls that will come in here pounding their chests about the overrated Jay Cutler after they are done getting their asses handed to them by the Packers on Sunday night!

Hey, did anybody notice that on the INT by Finnegan at the end of the half.....Wallace was jogging back to try and get into the play.

Why can our great rookie with 4.28 speed not be able to run down Finnegan from behind???

Why did Starks have to make the tackle and Wallace could not?? I was screaming at the TV.

not true

when we were in 3-WR sets, i think Wallace was in almost every time

When we went 5-WIDE (Miller as the 5th guy), Sweed was in but never targeted. How do you know they had their '3rd corner' on Sweed and their '4th corner' on Wallace??? You don't know so don't assume anything


I figured a bunch of the weird Sweed homers would be mad but I've quietly been on Wallace's bandwagon all along (so has HometownGal)

Sweed will get his chances but Wallace is playing well and the coaching staff has noticed

It's simple: If Wallace keeps playing like he did in yesterday's game, he'll get the #3 job. If it was a one-time thing, then probably not. In either case, I've got just as much confidence in those guys as I ever did in Washington, so I'm not worried about our WR depth.
