Default Re: Don't Be Too Concerned If We Don't Sign Wallace

If someone sign Wallace then we trade one of our 1st round picks and maybe a 2nd to move up and get a stud nose tackle that everyone says wont drop to us. Then use the other 1st rounder for o-line. If Ben has protection Stallworth could come out of retirement. WR's are a dime a dozen these days. Good nose tackles and O linemen aren't.
I remember when everyone freaked out when we traded that douchebag from Ohio State to the Jets, it turned out pretty well.

Sanders won't finish the season, mark my words. WARD is not the answer, Crotchery is not a Wallace replacement. They will not sign a top flight WR if Wallace leaves.
If Wallace leaves, you know this how??

Consider me one of those that LOVES Mike's ability to stretch the field, but wouldn't mind the Steelers bringing in a free agent and a 6'3" rookie from the 3rd round to replace him.

Brown, Cotchery, Free Agent, Rookie, Sanders.... with Big Ben throwing them the ball. I'm good with that.

1) The Steelers offense will be weaken if Wallace leaves. I don't know how people can say otherwise with a straight face.

2) I'm not concerned if he did leave. The extra first round pick will give the Steelers flexibility in the draft.

3) I still think he stays.

They will not buck the trend and run and run some more.

So where do you want to upgrade? The kicker?lol

The DB's played 20 plus yards back against Wallace and his deep routes in the 2nd half, picking up on the line than double teaming him late.
Why is it that people refuse to listen when the announcers pointed this out several times during the games.

Run game is marginal at best, and with the guys we have, although I like Redman, is unproven. Dwyer, unproven. Batch what did he do last year aside from tripping trying to race Sanders to the food line and they both got hurt, lol. Again, unproven. Same Oline, if not potentially weaker as Colon will be in a diff position and Gilbert a different position.
lol, nice logic there. since they won't sign an impact free agent OL they automatically wouldn't address it in the draft...womp wompppp

Chances are they will improve dramatically at both lines if they have an extra 1st rounder. Guards are deep this year, and if we were able to snatch Poe and a guard better than foster both lines will be set with young talent for years.

You are right that they will not address the RB situation, and I for one am perfectly fine with that. By addressing the O-line they are addressing the run game. We don't need to pound the rock 35 times a game like we have a rookie QB in there, we just need to be able to run it effectively.

As for being unproven, redman proved he is a capable NFL RB by being the starting tailback going into the 2012 season. You don't just get handed a gig like that if your coaches don't believe you can do it. All he did last year when he was starting was rip off runs and pound the ball effectively. That's all we need from him next year.

As for playing off Wallace, that is one way to shut him down...the other being physical with him after the catch. He was rattled last year at times, and didn't show the toughness you want from your #1 receiver. Why pay a receiver all this money when teams have blueprinted the way to shut him down? Sorry, not saying he sucks, but saying that his game is one-dimensional to the point he is not worth paying #1 receiver money.

If you don't think Brown is a better overall receiver then

Default Re: Don't Be Too Concerned If We Don't Sign Wallace

need wallace
who we gonna get to replace him?
Reggie Wayne = (no speed)
Randy Moss = (I play when I want to)
No rookie is gonna replace him

Wallace Stretches the field
Steelers have been known to only pay a player "so much"
But with the salary cap in place who cares what they pay him - everyone spends the same amount of money (just about)

Wallace is vital especially with the emphasis on this running game (he will demand double teams)

Only thing about Wallace that scares me is that if tears an ACL then he COULD lose his blazing speed and then it would be a waste of money and maybe a 1st round pick (Hope to God that never happens tho)....but maybe he can learn to be a better all around receiver

I was lookin at his receiving stats today. He only had two touchdowns in the red zone. Most of his touchdowns were of the 40+ yard variety.
Brown only had 2 touchdowns period. Same with Heath Miller, Sanders, Ward and Cotchery.

Wallace had the same amount of TDs that all of our other receivers had combined. Pretty embarrassing.

he still up and coming - so he can improve
I dont get the feeling he will ever be a Hines Ward type of receiver
He just doesnt look that rugged enough

Out an Ups
Deep Ins
Fly Patterns
Thats what we need him for
The over the middle and 5 yard slants save it for someone else

Yes he can tear an ACL as anyone but right now he is the best option
