I like the big play where he fumbles the ball - I say that jokingly - but yes, just not enough to overcome other players' lack of effort

Wallace has had more than "one bad game". He's been playing lackluster going all the back to 2011. Then came the holdout, which didn't win him many fans. Then he came back, then he proceeded to play miserable in 2012. His constant whining about the offense and the fans combined with his questionable effort on the field turned fans against him.

i would consider the possibility of re-signing wallace if he didn't punk out of the last game as a 'business decision'. he showed the world that he is not a team player, so i wouldn't even want him for a cheap price. players like that are a cancer on the team

what message would we be sending to the team by paying big bucks to a guy who doesn't give 100%? that it's okay to halfass it because you'll get yours if you have talent? come on man

antonio brown had a down season but you know what, the offense was definitely more affected with brown out than with wallace out. we signed the right guy, wallace can walk his ass out of town

Do you people have any idea what #1 receivers make in this league? AB's contract is about right as he is basically a #2. We still need that big posession receiver who can catch balls in traffic. Perhaps Plaxico will come back and fill that role. Who knows?

Brown is a #1 receiver how can you not think so?:

Give Wallace a break here!!! It's our own fault that we left him out in the dust that way. Of course he's not running into every tackle with a uncertain future. I rather give up a higher contract for Wallace then just be there with Brown after everythings said and done. Or do you honestly make the statement here that Antonio Brown is a better Receiver that Mike Wallce?!?!

Common man he's not. We should have re-signed him for a big long term contract before the season. I rather give up a higher contract for Wallace then just be there with Brown after everythings said and done.

Now I think It's almost necessary to get rid of Wallace because of the situation with Brown. I don't think they're a good #1 and #2 Wide Receiver duo together. I would have made the case to sign Brown as a Slot Receiver and rotating guy for Wallace as our #1 Receiver and a tall #2 we should draft this year. But with that type of money for Brown we can get rid of that idea. So I would say we get rid of Wallace. Make Brown our #1 get a tall #2 this year high in the draft (Round 1or 2) and leave Sanders in the Slot.

I do see Antonio Brown developing into that guy in the coming seasons, although he is not there yet.

However, I think Cotchery fills that role nicely right now.

We would have been better off with Cotchery playing the left side than Mike Wallace. We have won 2 SBs without a speedster receiver, and with Ben throwing to the likes of Nate Washington and Cedric Wilson-- we don't need Wallace. Serve him his walking papers.

Because that is NOT the role he was asked to play this year. Walace was our #1 WR.

Sorry, # receivers can go up in traffic and haul down those high passes when they have three players draped on them. Andre Johnson and Calvin Johnson types. Brown is too small and not strong enough to fight it out for loose balls. I like him a lot but don't think he is the ultimate #1 type receiver. He is perfect in the slot where #2 receivers play.

He also needs to get his head out and learn to hang onto the ball in traffic. He had at least 3 or 4 boneheaded plays down the stretch that helped us lose games. It wasn't all on Wallace. That fumble on the punt return (or was it a kickoff) against Dallas basically cost us the game that would have put us in the playoffs.

Wallace isnt exactly a big/tall guy either.
