although i agree that Wallace is definatly not worth 11 million a season to the Steelers, i disagree with most opinions here. yes he did have a bad game but he definatly does not suck. he is a really good wr who just had a bad game

This is not his first bad game this season. The reverse late in the game was a great call. It was as if Ben said, "Well, since you can't seem to catch the ball, I'll simply hand it to you." He didn't even catch the pass near the end. That was clearly a trap, but he got the benefit of a call on the field. He is certainly not worth the money we paid Brown.

On the other hand, Brown was awesome tonight! I love his turn around cut move (then Rainey's block) to get that first down early on. Great play calling in this game.

Peter King states where this is heading in his MMQB column this morning

Are you serious, Mike Wallace? Two drops in the first 13 minutes Sunday night? The second was going to be a big gainer. And here's the deal: There's no way a receiver with a case of the drops (which Wallace has had this year) is going to get big money from the Rooneys.

He might be good, but he is not "really " good.....Good wideouts are plenty in the NFL and they don't cost 10 mill a year!

Peter King usually talks up the Steelers - that is a fair assessment of his performance thus far this season

My wife said it best - "He looks just as good as Santonio Holmes right now - and isn't he injured?"

His body language says it all to me. I saw Tomlin trying to talk to him after a drop and he walked right past him. This guy isn't Steeler material after what I've witnessed in his last dozen or so games he has played dating to last season.

Don't know what's wrong with Wallace. His play of late is disturbing. Hope he gets it together.

There are plenty of good WR's in the NFL.

The kicker is that they aren't asking for 10 million a year like Wallace is.

I'd like to defend his performance, but I've run out of excuses. The bottom line is he NEEDS to step up and be the #1 guy and finish the first half of the season strong. No more of that "He opens up passes for Brown" bullshit. He was in man coverage the biggest portion of the night and dropped damn near everything thrown his way. No more excuses, get the job done.

Wallace needs to spend a quarter on the bench at this point, IMO. His attitude needs to be reset.

I don't think anyone's saying he "sucks", really. I think people are seeing him for what he is - a very good, above-average receiver - who's fast.
I'd like to see a return to the humble, nice, good-attitude kid we saw the 1st 2 years. I don't know that i've ever seen a player go from that to such a HUGE big head so fast. When i would hear him talk last year, i couldn't believe he became so cocky so fast.
