If I wanted to read morons write nonsense I would go buy a subscription to the National Enquirer. Play football and keep your worthless nonsense to yourself.
Personally, I believe in his right to free speech. Being a football player doesn't exclude him from that right. Of course, that same right allows you call foul on whatever he says as well. Gotta love America!

He is playing scared, that is why he has been shitty this year. He is thinking so much about his money, he doesn't want to get hurt. That is why he is dropping balls and playing like a dickhead.

He will cost us a play when it matters. That is my fear. Tomlin axed Mendenhall for this and I am very comfortable with it. I would not play Mendenhall the rest of the year. As far as Wallace, throw the ball to him on 1st downs, and on downs that aren't crucial. He is a choker and will drop the ball or not give enough effort on a play if you give it to him on an important play.

no, Tomlin suspended Mendenhall for not showing up on game day when he had been placed on the inactive list, big difference...

Did you miss the winning, almost impossible catch in the end zone? And what about the winning TD 51 yard run against the Giants? Some of you want to cherry pick the negative plays, and ignore the positive ones. The positives far outweigh the negative since Mike has been on this team. If we were to start looking at ALL of our player's mistakes, none would be left standing. They all make errors, yes Ben does too. Stop acting like children and be willing to have straight up dialogue about this.

We can have our own opinions, but facts don't belong to any of us, they are what they are. Wanna talk, lets do it.

Wallace and Mendenhall won't be Steelers after this season. So, arguing semantics is a waste of time. Wallace and Mendenhall are selfish players. They can go do their diva acts somewhere else. And it looks like the Rooney's will think the same.

I think Walace's comment of "it doesn't really matter" attitude speaks for his look at everything. He's over paid and isn't worth a lick. He plays like garbage and he doesn't care about it. As he says...he doesn't care and that's his take on everything he does and it shows in his horrible playing all season. Let's be done with him and just fire his worthless butt from the team. He can run fast to unemployment but probably won't catch a break. Lol!

I'm glad he doesn't have thin skin at least.
