Anything less than a SB victory this year and we lose him for nothing is a huge waste.
every team but 3 is 0-for-whatever in the SB with their star receivers since wallace came into the league. NO wr is the straw that stirs the "lombardi cocktail".

totally disagree that letting a 4 year player (3rd round draft pick) walk in free agency, is a "huge waste". we'd get atleast a 4th in return as comp, which is much better than what we got for sb mvp sancancerio holmes.

while i agree that wallace is done as a steeler, dave at steelersdepot has nicely painted the scenario how we can massage him under the cap.

omar kahn is the best in the biz pulling off such magic w/o mortgaging the future.

The thing about Wallace is that teams will know - whatever he does is Pittsburgh is the very best they could get out of him. Why? Becasue very few teams have Franchise QB's like Ben. There is not a throw that BB cannot make and Wallace will have had him for his every year in the league. I know someone will step up and pay him more than he's worth but I still think he could land in Pittsburgh for less than is being discussed. Keep him and try and sign him.

uh oh, OXymoron has chimed in with his fantastic take on the subject. an oxymoron is when two words or ideas are put together, yet mean the exact opposite and are sort of contradictory.

so maddog diminishes wallace's value to the team, short of lucking into a SB win with him, yet letting him go will be a waste of epic proportions.

nothing contrarian about that.

so which one is it?

dont worry... OXygen'll tellya!

He disagrees with someone, and he did so without any name calling, so far as I can tell. What's the big?

P.S. - Never mind.

Steelers draft stud wide receivers in droves. Mike Wallace is expendable if he thinks he is worff 10 mil per.

The Steelers are better off going with drafting another WR. Ben is at the stage in his career than it doesn't even matter who's at WR. He'll make them better.

This overestimating of the overrated Mike Wallace is quite ridiculous. He never shows up in big games and is soft as a pillow.
