He is well respected around the league.

Given your logic, I guess we should knock Brady down a notch or two because he plays Buf, Mia and the Jets twice a year. Give that BS a rest man. It must be too fuckin cold up there in Canada for rational thinking.
Actually, playing lesser talent does have a way of making one look better..........just saying.....

I think the deal with Wallace is we will miss him when he's gone, we will not be a better team with his departure, but we will move on, and there will be Steeler Football played in 2013 and beyond.

As for him getting a mega contract, he deserves what he gets, which will be a great deal more that what the Steelers will pay him. As for a team that is willing to over pay him, I.E, the Dolphins, there are reasons they have not been as competitive, not spending their money prudently might be one of them.

Do you understand what an out route is? If so I assume you never played football because you dont seem to understand this. There is no receiver in this world thats going to catch a ball thrown behind you that far on an out route. Wallace was supposed to run as fast as he can off the line. Once he hit his target which was 7 or 8 yards out he turns on a 90 degree angle to his right and the ball is supposed to be there before he hits the sideline. He is running as fast as he can and its a short pass.
If you want to blame anybody for that play then blame Rothlisbetger because it was his fault.

Out routes are not Ben's best pass, especially to his right. He's often late and soft. I've been saying that for years. As for the rest of his throws of his other throws, he's pretty stinking good, although with a guy like Wallace, Ben should anticipate Wallace getting open, until he actually clears before throwing the long bomb. The numbers would have been much better JMO

And Ben has admitted that it's all on his own about that play.

I know what an out route is and I also know when a player half asses it. Wallace played like a scared little girl this year so he wouldnt get hurt. Hes a bitch and I want that clown off this team. He was one of a few things on this team that caused so much unrest.

I'm not Wallace's biggest fan by any means, I'm just sick of people blaming everything on him. He definitely had a bad year but so did Brown and Brown made alot more money. I don't care if Wallace is on the team this season or not, I trust our GM so whatever he does us fine with me.
As for that out Wallace ran, it was a perfect pattern. Ben wasn't 100 percent from his injury and tossed a bad pass at the worst time. It wouldn't of happened before his injury and if our line can't stay healthy then it dosnt really matter who he throws to next year because he will get hurt again and the same things will happen.
As for Wallace being a clown, he had a horrible year by his standard but still led all our wide receivers. He had an awesome first three years so like Woodley I'm not going to write him off because of one bad season. He did things his first three years in the NFL that is almost unmatchable

Im not saying Wallace is the best WR because he isnt but he's a lot better then many of you give him credit for
Thats because the only 2 other WR's in NFL HISTORY to have a better first 3 years were Moss & Rice ...pretty good company I'd say... all these yinzer's will be crying when he's lighting it up somewhere else !

He is a one-trick pony. He failed because he has poor fundamentals and no heart. He needs to learn how to catch with hands extended. Most of all he needs to fight for passes and not give up on plays

Wallace would have been making more than Brown, but he chose not to sign. Wallace has no one to blame but himself.

Look at the poor effort Wallace gave in his contract year. How do you think he would have played if given that huge contract?
