You point out the "dropped balls, bad throws, poor offensive line play and suspect play-calling that led to a loss" but you want to give Mike Wallace the benefit of the doubt? You DO know he fumbled in our own end that resulted in a Ravens FG, right?

How many points did we lose by again?

I understand your point - but other high-profile receivers in this league DO make catches like that, even when hit. They also put forth a much, much better effort (for example on the pass late in the game that Wallace didn't even try to catch).

Certainly the loss wasn't Wallace's fault and i think the "hate" on Wallace may a bit overboard.
But is clear : Brown is the better guy to have out there - and Wallace just isn't one of the league's best. He's a very good player. But i wouldn't go anywhere beyond that.

His crappy effort is hurting the Steelers but in the end he is really hurting himself far more. He knows the Steelers aren't going to be interested in keeping him, so each week is really a tryout for other teams. As we have seen...dude is worth about 1/2 what he wants...and even at that the team that gives him it will probably be paying too much.

We can only hope he helps more than he hurts the rest of the way and then happily slam the door on him at the end of the season.

True...but the fumble was pathetic...which lead to 3 pts...and remind me again what they lost by?

Obviously the entire offense must be blamed more than just Wallace. But, big time players step up in games like that and, once again, Wallace failed to...and actually helped aid the losing effort.

As others have said, Wallace is a solid WR, a good #2 option, but that's about it. The fumble was bad, but it's hard to tell if he failed to secure it, or if he didn't have time to do so. Watching the play again I can't really tell if he ever even had total control.

The pass at his feet...yea, he should have at least went to the ground for it. In that situation you have to. If he had, I still doubt he could have caught it. At least it would keep it out of the arguments, though. I honestly wouldn't offer him more than 5 mil a year. I'd make Sanders the same offer at this point.

What happened to Wallace? A couple years ago he was awesome... defenses could not stop him. Now he's going through the motions...he's not the same WR that is for sure.

Tired of him, he's lazy and he plays scared. He won't fight for the ball, he won't reach out and get it either, if the pass is not perfect he drops it too often.

To me he's done what a lot of kids do, they fight to get somewhere, then they arrive, and their true colors come out, he's a guy that wants to be paid and slack off, no way I pay him. If you give this guy a big contract, he will disappear.

He isn't the same receiver because in his mind his job is done, he made himself a starter, and now he wants to get paid. That's all he's in football for.

Watch him play, he's trying to look after himself, that's all it's about with him, he wants to avoid contact if at all possible, and get paid. That's it.

We should check the archives of topics to see which people on this board wanted to give Wallace big bucks not so long ago.
