Default Big Ben on Wallace: Steelers will miss him, Dolphins are lucky

Big Ben on Wallace: Steelers will miss him, Dolphins are lucky

Posted by Michael David Smith on April 5, 2013



Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger thinks the Dolphins are going to get their money’s worth from their five-year, $60 million contract with receiver Mike Wallace.

Roethlisberger told TheFinsiders.com that Wallace is a complete receiver, and much more than just a deep threat with great speed.

“Mike is way more,” Roethlisberger said. “It’s to Mike’s credit. Mike is really focused on becoming a better receiver. So he’s focused on his route running. He’s focused on running out-routes, and curl-routes, and in-routes and doing all the little things that’s required to become a great wide receiver. That’s why he, to me, is one of the best in the league, because he not only has that speed – he can run by anybody – but he can run routes and he can get open. That’s why we’re going to miss him, and the Dolphins are lucky to have him.”

Roethlisberger added that Wallace will be a strong presence in the Dolphins’ locker room.

“He’s a great teammate, obviously a great player, but I thought he was even better off the field. Just a great guy, great teammate. Miami is very lucky to have him because he’s a great player,” Roethlisberger said.

Wallace will need to be every bit as great as Roethlisberger says he is to be worth the money the Dolphins are paying him.

a Mike Wallace thread PLUS a Big Ben thread! I think the Steelers are going to have trouble adjusting to the game without Wallace, but they might eventually become a better team. Who knows? I hope Wallace helps the Dolphins compete with the Patriots.

Does anyone know what Mike Tomlin had to say about BB's comments on Wallace?

he said we're going to play scared against Miami. What he specifically said was, "I want us to have a 'head buried in the sand" mentality. "

I am glad BR doesn't call the shots.

Wallace it trying to be a better WR? How? By deliberately not trying to catch passes? By refusing to fight for passes? By catching the football in that child-like manner?
