Even more reason why his play-off numbers would look pedestrian.

[You are right; he was behind Sanders, in their rookie season.]

He was the starter against Denver last year and had his typical 5 catches 70 yards and no td's game, when it mattered. The Broncos had a young receiver with 200 plus yards and won.

This season as a starter the " young money " AB has 490 yards receiving and 1 td. Those young guys from Cincy and Denver have a 1000 plus and many touchdowns.

I'm just not convinced he is a number 1.

Don't forget Wallace's drop of a 50 yd pass in last years playoff loss in Denver. If he catches the ball it would have changed the whole momentum of the game. Instead he drops a wide open pass,we have to punt and Denver goes down the field and scores. It was a 14 point turn around in a game we ended up losing in OT.
Also don't forget that Brown was the Pro-Bowl punt returner last year and was voted the Steelers team MVP.

I always have been and always will be a Wallace supporter, but c'mon now. AB has made a living so far off of clutch catches when he has to. 3rd-and-18 he converts for 50+. He sealed the game against the Jets and game in and game out he makes catches on third down to extend drives and keep a scoring play alive. He doesn't have number one receiver numbers for two reasons: he's not our number one receiver and this whole offence is getting acclimated to a new system where a catch for 5 yards is the norm. Next year when AB gets more comfortable and Ben doesn't go down (praying) you'll see his numbers shoot up. This isn't a down field vertical offence - we're a TOP offence and in that regard, AB had been solid.

Why even compare the two?

You can talk about stats all you want - the guy is good as gone - regardless if you like or hate him.

AB played the game (both on and off the field) to the best of his abilities, and therefore, earned the contract. When the guys number is called - he executes in critical situations. People would be singing a different tune if the guy was having a bad season, but was "acting like a Steeler." He's not. Bye, bye Mikey

Would never argue his return ability .

He had 1 catch for 14 yards and no td's in that Jets game. I never argued he was not good or " solid" he is just not a number 1 or game breaker.

I'll ask this question: Is Mike Wallace a liability on the field now? Would you rather have someone else without as much talent but that will fight that much harder? He wasn't getting much separation when AB was in there. Give him the Ravens game and see if he can turn some short throws into big gainers, after that - let's see Ben's chemistry with Plax.

The idea ain't that crazy.

steeltheone - I understand what you are saying - but what makes a number 1 or game breaker for the Steelers? I see the Steelers WR corps differently than most teams. I think the collective unit is what can make them great, rather than just one guy. Basically, the variety of weapons is what was making the Steelers the most dynamic team heading into the KC game - a ton of weapons, where no one guy has to be the hero - but all contribute to moving the chains and scoring. Hell - #81 was starting to see some touches before Ben went down - so was #46.
