I understand what you are saying Sir but I have never truly agreed with the statement that he makes the team that much better.. Do we need a speed guy ala Nate Washington, sure.. taking the top off is wonderful but our offense has never been explosive.. It always been "almost there" or a "few plays short" or the classic "a year away.." We have never been confused with the Saints or the Giants or the Packers.. We have never been high powered - we Rarely scored 30 but if we did one week then the next week we would barely hit 15.
Yes he has caught more touchdowns but As a Team we were not in the upper echelon - Its kind of like being the best looking ugly chick at a dance for the blind.. Our Passing Tds per year as a team is average - (bottom part of average) the Year He had 10 (2010) we only had 17 as a team.. The offense was not very good - 14th in the league. We have never Needed Wallace to Win super bowls, nor does Ben need him to be elite.
Help..., Willie at it again... Win or lose... Take your pick out of the numerous threads that are started here that need further clarification by actually opening up the thread. I apologize for the lack of clarity in the original post. As I said, have a Wallace jersey, a fan of his his skills and the value he brings to the team, but his effort TODAY was lacklustered and steaming with frustration from the many no call holds. But a top five receiver can ill afford a poor showing when his team needs him the most.... I can recall two plays where he just plain gave up and seem to show no effort. Top shelf receivers overcome and take over a game.
If he really did turn down a $50 million contract from the Steelers, he may be one of the dumbest players in the NFL, because if he keeps giving up on plays, he may not get an offer anywhere close to that ever again.
Truth hurt much?
