Default Wally couldn't come through like Santonio did

Well what can you say after watching replay after replay of that final pass play that was an easily catchable ball. It was not an easy catch but Wallace HAS to make that catch. Santonio made a tough catch in the EZ as we all have known. Our receivers inexperience came through in prime time. The play before that Wallace looked completely lost and precious time burned off the clock. I doubt that was Ben in a pressure situation like that, our receivers just shit the bed there. I really wished we would of had Santonio in those moments as much as I hate to say it.

I did see this coming, I was wondering if anybody was going to bring it up. I feel pretty much the same way. I don't know enough about football to completely agree with you though, I might be wrong.

It did seem like none of our receivers were getting anything done last night. Even with Woodson out and Shields hurt, we never got the passing game going.

The whole damned offense looked disorganized on that last "drive". I thought I was watching the Eagles for a moment there.

I understand what you're saying but Holmes dropped plenty of passes too. Remember the one in the endzone that he whiffed on right before "the catch" in XLIII? I'll take Wallace's upside over Holmes and all his crap any day.

Do you think he's going to sign a big deal with another team when his contract runs up? I wouldn't really surprise me, we don't keep big time receivers for long. But that's because we've always had Ward, one of the greats. His career is going to be ending in the next few years, I think the Steelers might try to hang on to Wallace.

Just curious as to why you do not see Wallace in a Steelers uniform long-term? I have my own opinions on the matter..

You're right, maybe we can get Yancy Thigpen back.

I think we tried too many 10-20 yard routes. You have to say Santonio ran some beautiful routes. I think our inexperience at the WR position really hurt us last night. Our receivers did not make the necessary adjustments.
