I don't think Wallace is overpaid at all, in fact he has definitely outperformed his contract.

Agreed. Wallace is way underpaid and all these members who think he shouldnt be here are nuts. He's the best WR on our team.

While I would agree that he has been underpaid for his productivity in his career thus far, I will not agree with you that he is the best receiver on this team. I am starting to wonder if he isn't the 3rd best receiver on this team.

He has the worst hands of the bunch. He runs garbage routes. All he has is his speed and teams have pretty much figured him out. All he can do is run deep or the screen, and that's if he catches the ball.

At this point, he really isn't good for anything else other than a distraction which is why he was demoted.

He is a one trick pony, and that one trick is only good for a play every 3 or 4 games now. I hope he does get paid, he does deserve it. I just hope it isn't here.

If he is our 3rd worst we have serious issues. He leads our WR's in yards and touchdowns. Everyone talks about the drops but he is average there and there are a lot more wr's who you consider better who have more drops. A lot of people only loo at his drops instead of all his good plays and every single receiver to ever play this game has numerous drops

Wallace won't be a Steeler next year regardless.

great effort by wallace on the OT interception, does he stood there and watched the defender get up and start running before he even thought about trying to tackle him...

You know, maybe Steelers fans should be more angry at Brown than Wallace. Yeah, Wallace held out, but Brown actually took the money and has underachieved thus far.

Brown was just as glum, just as willing to accept blame. With the Steelers ahead 24-17 and 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter, he returned a punt 22 yards. However, Victor Butler stripped him of the ball, Dallas teammate John Phillips recovered at the Steelers 44 and the Cowboys (8-6) made good on it when DeMarco Murray ran three yards untouched up the middle on third down to knot the game back up with 6:55 left.

Mike Tomlin put the loss squarely on Brown.

"We allowed them to remain in the game, and we lost the game because of it," Tomlin said. "We had a lead, we had a punt return. It was going to be good field position. We put the ball on the ground."

yeah - i saw that too and couldn't believe it on replay again. He just stood there and watched the guy run right by with it. The tiny kickers put more effort into it than that trying to tackle somebody.
