more 2nd-guessing in Steelerland than ever before. Lots of backseat drivers.

Thats what guys make nowadays doing what he does. He's a strong #2 receiver. End of story.
And at the time....
We didn't think we'd sign Wallace - and we STILL probably (no, make that surely, won't). Would really suck if they both left, wouldn't it? Then people would be saying "why didn't we pay him that money??......."

Exactly. When you look at the stat line (especially for those just interested in Fantasy Football, and not real football) you tend to look at just receptions, yards, TD's. Not games played.

That has a tendency to really skew the numbers.

Gerry Dulac needs to just stop. It's like he's writing for a headline and putting out bullshit skewed facts to prove his 'point'. I'm using the word point a little fast and loose when describing Dulac, though.

Brown is not a #2 receiver he is a #1 receiver, he plays like he wants to win unlike Wallace, not to mention has way better hands. This team only has a few players that really act like they give a shit if we win or lose, those being ben, brown, harrison, and lewis, who hopefully we find a way to keep.

Next season I would be plenty happy with Brown as #1 Sanders as #2 and Cotchery as #3 Anyone know if we will still have Plax? If so him and Cotch could split time, and we'd have a little extra depth at the position.

edit: to answer the origional question, yeah we paid quite a bit but we locked up a great player, better we gave him the deal not Wallace, and someone mentioned Wallace had a bad game against the bangles? Wallace had a bad season against everyone this year, not just cinci, wow.

Antonio Brown came off a season doing something that no PLAYER in the history of the NFL had done. Have a 1000 yards receiving and 1000 yards returning in the same season. Made THE clutch catch of the year in 2010-11 for the Steelers in the B-More playoff game to come back from a 14 point deficit.

He was paid for performance plus the future. He had a high ankle sprain this year that derailed his entire season. High Ankle sprains are sometimes worse then a sprained knee. Especially for a guy who's entire game is predicated on quick stops and go.

Brown has great hands, reminds me of hines ward/santonio holmes a little.

His stats and performance were poor before the injury.

I might also add that Brown made some big plays after initially returning from injury.
