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

I cant for the life of me understand why so many steeler fans want to get rid of Wallace. He is a special WR that defenses must plan and adjust to. What if Brown was a one year wonder? What if Brown cant produce when going against the opponents top CB and double teams? What are you going to say if our offense struggles without Wallace? Opponents wont need to keep a saftey deep and can start bringing him up to the line.
We will see at the end of this season what all you Wallace haters say because i gurentee you i will be bumping this thread and the other Wallace bashing threads

Really pete? Cause I thought I went into pretty good detail in my post as to why the team wouldn't fall apart without him. Getting 2 1st round talents for the price of a 3rd rounder on a team looking to get younger is a good business move.

Forget for a second that teams have now figured out how to shut him down, say we keep him and then in return don't have the money to spend on heath or brown next year. What good is it if we lose the supporting cast to keep the star?

If our offense struggles next year it will be real easy to find someone to blame. And that man is Haley. lol This is pittsburgh bro, we don't blame players we blame the coaches, ESPECIALLY on offense.

We heard this before when Holmes was let go, what will we do...what if wallace can't step up, yada yada yada.... I honestly think losing wallace will be addition via subtraction in the long term. We need balance in this offense, not star WRs and 40 yard bombs (which our QB sucks at throwing!)

1) Letting Wallace go will give you one first round pick, not two.

2) Wallace was picked at third round, it doesn't mean that he's not a first round talent. He has shown that he is. I bet all teams who need a WR are willing to pick him in the first round if they know how well he turns out to be.

3) Our QB certainly doesn't suck at throwing those 40-yard bombs when he plays with two legs instead of one like last year second half of the season.

4) The extra first round pick is valuable. It doesn't mean that Wallace is easily replacable.

5) I'm sure the Steelers draw the line for how much they should spend on Wallace. So no worries about signing Brown if they do sign Wallace.

6) That's being said, I'm not concerned if we don't sign Wallace.

doesnt wallace have more 40+ yd receptions than anyone in the league (even veterans such as a johnson, r. wayne, and l. fitz)?

nope.....
c johnson - 10
v cruiz - 9
fitz - 8
green - 7
jones - 7
nelson - 7
wallace - 7

maybe as a career average...
fitz and cj both have 25 , wayne 30, s smith 41 ,to wallaces 23 , but of course they've played longer.

For me it's not a question of wanting to get rid of him, it's a question of affordability. Wallace is a very good receiver, I hope he stays here and hope he see's from others who left and came back (Foote, El) that big money elsewhere doesn't necessarily mean better working conditions. But we simply can not afford to pay him a big contract. If he were to settle for 5 or 6 Million per year then hopefully we can keep him, but i doubt that will be the case. Somebody I fear will front load a contract to keep him out of our grasp. He wil also want what he thinks is his fair salary, with the Bills signing the idiot Steve johnson to about 7 mil/season and bowe being franchised, Walace is going to want that kind of money. For the Steelers that would handcuff them longterm. IMO the sound decision would be to let Wallace go if that were the case, get the extra 1st round pick and sign Cotchery, Heath, Brown and others, maybe pick up a OL in free agency.
I trust in the way the F.O does business, it's worked pretty god for the Steelers and us fans over the years, we always seem to be in the mix for a championship. Whatever they decide to do will likely be the best for the team LONGTERM!!

I love all our young WR in Pitt! Yet to ME, it's CLEAR who are best WR is! If we lose Wallace will be fine after being compensated with a 1st rounder! No matter what area we draft with that pick! I was on the Wallace wagon from his first year! How could ya not be? Yet that being said i would rather have Brown (stand up guy on and off the field and amazing hard worker in practice, best on our team IMO) for years to come then Wallace! Just my opinion! So dont go off!


p.s. I think will have Wallace tho come week 1! ;)
