Wallace had one touchdown in each of our first three games. Antonio Browns has only one, in our third game, which came in a loss too (although why that's relevant I don't know, they were competetive games, there were no blow outs, the opposing D shutting down and padded stats from those games.) Wallace has a lot lot lot lot more TDs than any other WR (or player) on our team since he got here. It's not the only important factor, but it is a telling stat.

I am a Wallace fan but he did quit in that last game. Not sure why, but he sure did.

Thats ok, not Spectacular...All the stats came from the Raiders game ( both starting corners out ) So against NFL starters, he is 11 rec...128 yards and 2 tds....Thats just not big time receiver stats!

Exactly. Those are good numbers, but to be Fitzgerald-esque, all Wallace needs to do is show some effort.

The difference between Hines Ward and most other WRs, is that Ward simply tried harder. Put Ward's attitude into Wallace's body, and you have Larry Fitzgerald.

Well, maybe not Fitzgerald... but, someone really, really good.

1. Even without the Raidahs game, for those two other games, he is averaging: 5 receptions, 64 yards, and a TD.
...which are respectable numbers.

That expands to a season total of: 88 receptions, 1,024 yards, and 16 TDs.
...which is very respectable.

2. Wait... you have me arguing for Wallace. Did Wallace have a good first three games or not...???
...uh... that is not the point.

The point is: Wallace quit... regardless of whether his first three games were spectacular, average, or horrible.

Maybe Ward wouldn't be Ward if he had Wallace's body. Ward was built like a safety, Wallace is built like a speed burning deep threat.

Ergo, a correction in my statement:

Ward's drive, combined with Wallace's speed, equals a really awesome, unstoppable, TD-catching, deep-threat WR... who blocks.

I said nothing about his "yards", and that's an incorrect statement anyway.
