This overestimating of the overrated Mike Wallace is quite ridiculous. He never shows up in big games and is soft as a pillow.
by "big games" i assume you mean playoff games? how many has he played in? 4?

suprise...suprise... his OC never bothered to show up in big games either. EVER.

i dont know where this silly notion that he is "soft" comes from, and anyone who says he has no hands, wasnt a fan back when nate washington played.

people are to the "make believe" point of hatin on him for nothing more than his his desires for a big contract (as if he's the first player to want as much $$$ as possible).

i understand though. many fans are incapable of seperating teh business from the game and act like jilted lovers.

its like the really nice hot chick who dumps the average joe once somebody better comes along, and all of a sudden is an ugly "bitch".

Wallace biggest game was against the Raiders backup DB's and he managed only 60 something against a banged up Skins defense.

I believe we are at a point where BR7 spreads the ball around to numerous players and like a previous poster stated " he makes receivers better"

Wallace's money would be better spent elsewhere.

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.
Holmes was a cancer? Please explain. This kinds of sour grapes talk always emerges after the Steelers let a player go.

It wouldn't be a waste to let a 3rd round pick walk if he had no market value. Wallace does, he's just not worth the stupid money he wants.

Don't worry, when Wallace does eventually leave, he'll run him down like he's running down Holmes now to illustrate that once again, the Steelers did the right thing.

I'm not diminishing his value to the team. I think you're vastly overrating it, especially in Haley's offense that uses the entire field.

Paying Wallace $10M would be sheer folly with so many areas of need on the other side of the ball, and an embarrassment of riches at WR, and on offense in general.

Really? You're not contributing to the discussion with this bullshit. Try at LEAST arguing his claims before you throw your little jabs out there. It's getting old REAL quick.

Holmes scored TDs in his first four playoff games and was named SB MVP.

The fact that he doesn't come back for the ball, fight for it in traffic, or even make attempts at deep balls unless they're perfectly thrown.

I don't recall anyone begrudging Brown his pay day. He's a complete receiver.

Kind of like you did with Holmes? Glass houses.

Who's the trade partner? Give me a team that will offer anything for him knowing they have to pay him the big contract immediately.

Holmes' career has went down the drain since being traded. You can't deny that Ben Roethlisberger's arm was the reason for much of his success, including his playoff performances. Even under Bruce Arians we ALWAYS had a chance to win with Ben playing QB.

Mike Wallace seems to play with a lack of effort, and has scored most of his touchdowns this year in losses, so i'm not going to argue your thoughts on him. I too am disappointed in his production, and I feel he isn't proving himself as a #1 receiver so far this season. I'm hoping he lights it up next weekend, and continues lighting it up the rest of this season. He's already had a slow start to his season, and he's nearing the "Only plays tough ONE half of the season" territory we're use to from last year.
