who Maize?? ....I watched him a lot while he played at Bama, he's a good little athlete, and he can take over for Brown returning punts/kicks. To be honest at this point, if we get Wallace great if we don't move on, I personally want someone who wants to be a part of the Tradition as well as making a great salary, but thats just me

Ok so Emanual Sanders gets hurt again, (he has every season) or Cotchery who is no spring chicken gets hurt. Then we go into a game with our top 3 receivers being A Brown, and Cotchery and then Toney Clemons a 7th round draft choice! WOW How can we be beat.

Or we could go with Derick Williams who has 9 career catches and can't stick with the Detroit Lions.

Or Marquis Maze! Another rookie who wasn't drafted.

Yeah who needs a 6' 5 physical receiver who has a super bowl winning TD catch and has played in 550 career games plus clutch playoff games. Yeah I mean Maze won't get pushed around out there and Toney Clemons won't drop any more balls like he has his whole career.

It would be the biggest mistake in Steelers history to not add a vet to the roster if it is apparent Wallace is holding out into week 1. And the Steelers aren't stupid. Because even Antonio Brown couldn't get on the field as a rookie until late in that season and he still didn't know much. Clemons or Maze is going to be better?

It would be nice to have one receiver on the team that can actually win a jump ball.

But pre-season will tell the tale. Does Wallace show? Do the young receivers make an impression? If not. PLAXICO is the WAY TO GO!

Jerry Rice has more career TDs and receptions than any other WR in NFL history. And... I do believe he's available. Who's with me!?!

We could bring back Kordell for a year in the slot. But after two years, he's gonna want to play QB.

I think Plax has burned his bridges with the Steelers.

GOD...where did this E. SAnders love affair come from????

I get that Cotchery has experience and some, but Sanders is arguably the most brittle receiver in the NFL. Even Coach Mike knows it (stuck him on the PUP with no explanation other than "he has a history of being hurt so we're handling him gently).

Guess we can give Mendy more carries then...oh wait. We have unproven at running back (full season)...we are thin at wide out experience...

But Plax...who caught 45 passes in a run first offense after being out of the league for 2 years...is a bad addition.

Gotcha.

Sanders was never on the PUP list. He was given Sunday off because Tomlin didn't want him to practice on the turf.

I don't want to See Burress back here. However, if we run into injury problems and need a veteran receiver then if he's available then he's worth a look. Bringing him in now because of Wallace pouting and not showing up wold nly take much needed reps away from our young receivers such as Clemons, Williams and Maze. I would much rather see if those guys can play rather than bring in a vet with a questionable attitude.
