Default For or against giving Wallace 9 Million a year?

Would you be opposed or against a 9 million a year for Wallace for 4-6 years?

I haven't voted yet, but I'm leaning on "for it". I think that will become a normal price for #1 wr.

He's not a #1 receiver
He's still a one trick pony IMO

He has the potential to rack up the yardage to make him worth Fitzgerald/Johnson money in the future. Brown's a great receiver, but I think he largely benefits from Wallace. But next year they will both benefit from forcing teams to cover both of them and still account for Sanders and Cotchery who are both more than capable of being number 2 receivers on several teams...

If things work out, we are going to be ridiculously stacked at receiver in the future.

Wallace has made some good plays going across the field just like the 53 yard TD catch he did against the Raiders...

Bruce never gave him a chance to go across the middle

Totally against it.

Sign Brown and Sanders long term to be our 1 and 2 - that's going to be real nice for us. Cotchery is our slot guy for potentially a few more years, develop some of these other guys for depth and situational play.

Wallace will sign his tender; if he takes his demands and services elsewhere the next season we're not going to miss him really. It's time we started sinking our luxury spending into the O-line and D-line. if you can always win the trenches, the rest can fall into place.

Against it. Love Wallace, but I'm looking for him to take a few more steps. It's premature until he does.

im for it. 4 years from now, $9 mil will be dirt cheap for his services.

buddy ryan once tried to convince everyone that viking's great chris carter was a 1 trick pony. "all he does is catch touchdowns".

im certainly not against this fiscally sound line of thinking either. giants, patriots, packers, saints didnt need top 5 paid wr's to make it to the superbowl, lead the league in offense or scoring, break passing records etc.
