Default Wallace returns home to New Orleans

Wallace returns home to New Orleans
By John Harris
Saturday, October 30, 2010

Wide receiver Mike Wallace attended O. Perry Walker High School in New Orleans, where as a senior he caught 19 touchdown passes, returned four kickoffs and four punts for touchdowns and had seven touchdowns called back. He grew up a devoted Saints fan, where he cheered for Joe Horn, Ricky Williams, Craig "Ironhead" Hayward and Torrance Small. Facing his hometown team on Halloween night in the Superdome holds special meaning for him. "My dad used to take me to a lot of Saints' games," said Wallace, who leads the Steelers with 25.3 yards a catch after leading the NFL in receiving average as a rookie last season. "When I was young, I liked Torrance Small because he used to get the ball all the time. As I got older, Ricky Williams was my favorite. Joe Horn. I liked anybody who got the crowd pumped up. Those guys did that for me."

Defensive end Brett Keisel (hamstring) missed his third consecutive day of practice and won't play against New Orleans. Trai Essex practiced all week and is expected to regain his starting job at right guard. Doug Legursky replaced Essex the past four games.

Defensive end Nick Eason played in only eight games last season. He was inactive for the first four games, released and re-signed two days later. A year later, Eason will make his second consecutive start due to Keisel's injury. "My reps have almost tripled in the last two or three weeks," Eason said. "I'm just trying to do the little extra things in between practice, after practice, getting in the cold tub, warm whirlpool, getting massages, trying to get more rest, trying to hydrate myself better."

New Orleans running backs Reggie Bush (fibula) and Pierre Thomas (ankle) are out. Starting cornerback Tracy Porter (knee) is questionable, and fellow starter Jabari Greer (shoulder) is doubtful. Both were limited in practice Friday. Linebacker Scott Shanle (hamstring) is questionable.

Default Re: Wallace returns home to New Orleans

That is coldblooded, not mentioning Keenan Lewis at all. He also grew up in NO, and went to the same HS. You'd think he'd deserve at least a passing reference.
Why does God hate amputees?
