there's no Al Davis, but there is a "jerry jones"

I was thinking the same thing: SuperBowl MVP.

Expect him to get a very similar deal to what Victor Cruz receives. Wallace can test FA, but he'll end up on a team like Jacksonville that has all the cap space in the world, but your quarterback is Blaine Gabbert. There's no top end team that has the cap space to sign him, and if he wants the huge payout, he'll have to go on a team that has no chance of winning a title.

However, I don't think this is the case and I've said it many times. He'll resign here and receive a deal that could mirror what Cruz is going to get.

i don't think so. The next deal for Cruz, he's going to get the moon and beyond. Not even a possibility of a chance we'll give Wallace the kind of money Cruz will get.

The Steelers have had zero problem getting rid of and replacing good WRs over the years. I'll be very surprised if Wallace is a Steeler next year.

If there's one thing I know from the Steelers, you don't need a Superstar lineup at WR, you just need one dependable #1 guy. I think it's quite obvious that Antonio Brown is THAT guy, and he has a new contract, so he's not going anywhere.

For all these years, WR's have come and went in Pittsburgh, but only one guy was constant: Hines Ward. The Steelers would be fine at WR because Hines was the leader, and the constant face.

Now Hines is gone, Brown has taken the reigns. Wallace is expendable.

I'd have no problem going with Brown and Sanders at #2 from 2013 and beyond.

I can see it already. The revival of the 'official mike wallace thread'.

And it's only half way through the season.

I'd trade Wallace today to the Jets for Tebow and their #1 draft pick - get on the phones

you know, I really think he is only to get 7-8 mil, MAYBE 9 somewhere else. Hell - he might end up opposite Fitzgerald
