Mike Wallace promises to start playing better as soon as we show him the money. so let's just go ahead and give into his contracts demands and pay him the $11.5 million/year he's asking for...:moon

Since Brown has emerged Wallace's game has gone down hill. When he was the MAN he had a bit of swagger to his, now.. not so much..

BROWN is an all around WR who puts his time in to improve....
I think Wallace's off season work out program was doing 60 yard sprints.

10-21-2012, 11:43 PM
Well now defenses are doubling Brown so thats why Wallace is getting so open and Brown's production is down.....
Oh wait, switch that and go back to last year:rolleyes:
Man if Wallace had half the determination Brown had he'd be a top 5 WR

Mike "I only catch the ball if it's a 50 yard fly pattern with the ball dropped in my bread basket" Wallace.

Now, pay me 11.5 million a year.

This is how many games this year where it's appeared that he's completely lacked effort on plays? I think it's three. 1 game can be categorized as a "bad game" but 3 is a completely different story. If this continues I would seriously consider switching him and Sanders on the depth chart.

Even on the catch he made that got reviewed, I thought the effort was very poor. Truely sad.

Shawn

I agree...I would bench Wallace for a game to send a message to Wallace, teammates, and other teams in the league that might wanna overpay for his services.

I think there is little to no chance he is re-signed at this point. Unless he wants about HALF of what he was originally offered.

His hands are suspect.. breadbasket or its 50/50. He isn't worth 10 mill IMO.

I was screaming at the TV " are you sure your worth the money your asking ? Do you think big money guys allow the passes to go thru their hands ? " " Bench him Tomlin and now they will know paychecks need earned and not handed out." Wallace and Tomlin obviously did not hear me.

BTW, the Redskins are our next team up and you palefaces should bring some of the fire water and get those Redskins drunk. That will screw up their game for them.

Between Wallace and Sanders last night, we had the full Limas Sweed experience (Wallace dropping passes and Sanders faking injury).

It's not only the hands that have bothered me about Wallace, it is the lack of toughness... runs out of bounds, drops to the ground to give himself up rather than trying to put his head down for that extra yard or two. He is easily brought down with an arm tackle.

$10M/yr..... haaahhaaahaaa, REALLY?!?!..... let him walk if that's what he wants...

If Wallace is worth $11.5M, then Baron Batch must be worth $14M. :)

I have said all along that Mike Wallace's problem is he can't handle the internal competition and comparisons to Antonio Brown. His psyche is too weak. That is why I don't think he really wants to stay here no matter what PR BS he puts out. He wants to go where he is "the man" and he will never be "the man" on the same team as Antonio Brown.

sheesh, if anything it was BARON BATCH who was "HURT" after he messed up.. Now, THAT was SWEEDLIKE.. he started limping as soon as he missed the ball!!! hilarity..

When you drop passes like he and Batch did that usually means they are not practicing enough. They should double the amount of catching they do in practice!!

Drops don’t shake Roethlisberger’s confidence in Wallace
Posted by Josh Alper on October 23, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

There are receivers around the NFL with reputations for not having the best hands.

Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace isn’t one of them. He dropped a small number of passes in his first three seasons, helping him earn the trust of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the coaches in the process. It’s reasonable to wonder if that trust took a hit on Sunday night when Wallace dropped four passes against the Bengals.

The answer, from Roethlisberger, is that the confidence remains high in a player he targeted 15 times during the game.

“I don’t shy away from them even with drops,” Roethlisberger said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com. “I will always have confidence in them no matter what. These guys all hold themselves to a really high standard, and it just shows how valuable these guys are to our attack.:

Wallace is on pace for the most receptions of his NFL career, although he’s also on pace for the lowest yards per catch. Both things are also true of Antonio Brown, which would seem to support Roethlisberger’s belief that the offense run by offensive coordinator Todd Haley is longer on dinking and dunking than it is on the big plays that were formerly a staple of the Pittsburgh attack.

Should things continue this way, it will be interesting to see what impact it has on Wallace’s quest for a new long-term contract in Pittsburgh or somewhere else. We’d say the same about the drops except that we’re pretty sure that it won’t be a positive outcome for the wideout.

Most catches in his career and probably the most drops in his career. No way Wallace will see a contract this offseason if he keeps this up.

Someone, maybe even the Steelers, will offer him a nice contract. It will probably be around what the Steelers already offered. However, I still think that Wallace wants to get away from the growing reputation and performance of Antonio Brown.

The Bengals showed why you want 2 good WRs. I like Antonio Brown, but he is no AJ Green, and Green was taken out of the game by the Steelers. Much harder to 2 when you have to worry about 2 WRs.

I would like to see Wallace return (at a reasonable rate, of course) because of the balance he brings to the offense. Even with a few drops, you have to account for his speed. If a deal cannot be reached, the Steelers need to get value in return for Wallace. Otherwise, it would open a big hole that needs to get filled.

I still don't think the Steelers should pay him 50million or more and I don't see them doing so.

If Sanders stays healthy, I think him and Brown will be top 2 receivers next year. We'll see if a 2nd year guy, an upcoming draft pick or Cotchery will be our #3.

Steelers receiver Mike Wallace plays against the Raiders at Sports Authority Coliseum Oct. 2012

By Ralph N. Paulk
Published: Friday, October 26, 2012

Mike Wallace has put together some impressive numbers during his career. But his career-high four drops against the Bengals nearly got into his head.

Wallace is convinced he remedied the situation in preparing to face the Washington Redskins on Sunday at Heinz Field.

Im upset it happened, but you cant dwell on it too much because itll roll over to the next game, Wallace said. Im good about it now because I caught everything in practice this week to get it off my back.

Wallace has gone back to the basics. He spent the week polishing his routes and using his eyes to the watch the ball in before tucking it away. He challenged cornerbacks Ike Taylor and Keenan Lewis to help sharpen his focus.

Still, hes perplexed about his uninspired performance against the Bengals.

I dont know what happened, he said. It was kind of a snowball effect. I took my eyes off the first one, and I had hard time shaking it off.

NEW REDSKINS

Steelers safety Ryan Clark will hardly recognize the Redskins: Only two players tight end Chris Cooley and receiver Santana Moss remain on the Washington roster since he left after the 2005 season.

They were the only two. Its been a long time, Clark said. It would be cool to see those guys. Its not the same team though as when I left. This is the Steelers versus the new Redskins. Its going to be a challenge.

The Steelers won, 23-6, in the teams last meeting in 2008. Clark sat out that game with an injured shoulder. Hell get his chance to face down Moss, a deep threat for rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.

When I was there, (Moss) was the guy, Clark said. He was our No. 1 option. He was in the prime of his career.
