Let Wallace go to New England or elsewhere. Takes a load off this team's shoulders.

And how do they replace him? Some practice squad scrub?

I watch the games. And while Wallace is having a bad season, I see him being more productive than the guy that actually took the big pay day...

Pretty much. Wallace is not that good.

It doesn't take much to replace a Mike Wallace when you have a QB like Ben. Brady and Manning have dealing with interchanging parts at WR for years and they haven't missed a beat. As long as the Steelers have Ben, it doesn't really matter who they have out there at WR.

It's Heath Miller who the Steelers can't afford to lose.

Not that good? Keep smoking that crack then. Despite his shortcomings, he's STILL done better than the rest of the Loose Change Crew.

Yes, Brady and Manning have dealt with interchanging parts..... that actually have pedigree. If you replace Wallace with another deep threat, then you can get away with that. If you replace him with a practice squad scrub, get used to more bubble screens, because the Steelers won't be going down field much.

Brown hardly got a "big payday". He was paid reasonably decent as the Steelers didn't throw a bank-breaking contract at him. Not to mention, Brown's season was offset by injuries.

Wallace has been mediocre since the middle of last season. Yeah, funny how Wallace fanboys forget about last year too.

So all the fumbles and drops are because of Browns injuries?

Typical yinzer nation - relentlessly bash players/coaches they don't like, but make excuses for the ones they're in love with.

You are the one who needs to stop smoking and start watching the games.

Yep, Wallace has been so much better than everyone else that the TEAM voted Antonio Brown the MVP of last season. Yeah, that same guy who got the payday for that same effort, now Brown hasn't been having a great season either, but I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt because I know what he can do. I know what Wallace can do, and going deep is the only thing he can do competently.

I am not making excuses for Brown. It's HIS fault we lost last weeks game.

What you fail to realize my friend is WHY Yinzer Nation and even the team and organization, likes Brown over Wallace, and why fans aren't jumping down Brown's throat. It isn't because of some perceived bias as you claim.
