Default 2010 Wallace or 2009 Holmes

If you had to pick one of the two receivers, which one would it be?

Stats

Wallace
53 receptions 1,048 yards 8 TD

Holmes
79 receptions 1,248 yards 5 TD

This is a tough choice here. Clearly stats don't show everything. Ben was out for the first four games and Wallace still has 2 more games so maybe he reaches the 1,200 yard mark. Holmes though was the better route runner, but Wallace goes down the field really fast, but he has missed a lot of plays that which Santonio would probably would've made due to his experience.

Your thoughts?

Wallace due to his age and the fact he isnt a self promoted drug user. But more importantly, I think the upside is huge there.

Keep in mind last year, Wallace aided Holmes in spreading the field as well. Hows Holmes doing this year? 660 missed 4 games.

i'll take Wallace, he is getting better and better on the routes, has gone from a long ball guy to something much better.

Wallace. Youth, and more specifically, speed. His route running can get better, Holmes won't get much faster, in fact, he'll get slower.

I think Wallace has huge upside. He just needs more chances at deep routes than the steelers are giving him. It seems like he has the DB's beat on almost every play !

Wallace is here and holmes is not...I'll take Wallace! But seriously holmes made big plays for us in the postseason but was not what I call an elite reciever. Wallace looks like he has stardom written all over him.

wallaces 1st two year's stats are leaving holmes' 1st two in the dust.

i swore holmes would be the next tory holt. while he was good, he never lived up to that standard.

theres still hope for wallace. holmes is what he is.

Not saying this because holmes aint with us anymore but I gotta choose wallace. You rarely see him drop any balls, hes quicker so hes more of a thread down field, and hes getting better on the short routes and over the middle.

I like, he's taller and can jump higher, don't get me wrong, posession recievers like Ward and Holmes are great, but the Steelers haven't had a big tall reciever since Plax. Plus Wallace has shown he can make moves and make yards after the catch, he's an all around great reciever.
