[QUOTE=Mister Pittsburgh;538605]One question I have is are most of our players mentally handicapped or do our position coaches suck? Have Brown, Wallace, Sanders, Mendenhall gotten better at anything over the past 3 years? Mendenhall still carries the rock a foot from his body. Our WR still run terrible routes and haven't seemed to have improved with catching with their hands or holding onto the ball. I almost spit a drink out when I saw Wallace catch that ball with his hands even though his body control sucks and he was out of bounds and it looks like Brown needs sneezed on to fumble....[/QUOTE]
And how about our defensive players that don't seem to know how to wrap up on a tackle?

No kidding. WTF was that with Troy where he purposefully did almost a flip over the ball carrier? Fundamentals seem poor all around on this team.

Now we're talking. I got a whole new set of nicknames besides Wally.
Burn Wally Burn (aka Run Forrest Run)
BW3 - get Wally a side job as the spokesperson for Buffalo Wild Wings so we can pay him less on it
Whatever we call him, he needs his hawk back. He lost his power like Samson without his hair.

My mom told me I have the IQ of a Carnie, so the funhouse makes a lot of sense right now. And boy do I like Snickers.

This thought terrifies me.:p

Calvin is from another planet, and there some up-and-comers there who have talent oozing from their pores like A.J. Green and Julio Jones...complete package types (which Wallace will never be...guys like that just seem to be a whole other species sometimes). There are a few on that list I wouldn't put ahead of Wallace right now strictly because of age (Reggie Wayne and Steve Smith, for instance, are still performing right now, but they're on the back nine and headed for Hines Wardville in a few seasons...also, Andre Johnson is a beast and Wes Welker is a pass-catching machine, but how many more elite-level years do they have in the tank?...that's up for debate). Interesting conversation, though.[/QUOTE]
Great list that shatters the myth of Wallace's greatness. Except for the age of a couple I would take every WR on this list over Wallace.
It would be interesting to see how much money all those receivers make....That would help gauge the monetary value of Wally....
I will be a sad day in the off season when we lose our best receiver....

In 2010, Mike Wallace was the 5th placed WR on NFL rankings. In 2011, Mike Wallace was 9th.
That's 2 Top 10 years in a row. He's 20th this year, in what is widely regarded a 'down year'in which he 'isn't trying'.
Now, if anyone could just point out the years in there where our #1 WR, Antonio Brown, was ranked higher- that'd be appreciated.
To base Wallace's next contract on just this 1 year's production is stupid & short sighted. Let's face it- giving any player a generous contract extension based on 1 year's production is a masive gamble that has no guarentee of working out.
Right, Antonio Brown?

Burny's production is right inline with Michael Crabtree, Randall Cobb, Torrey Smith, Mike Williams, TY Hilton, Nate Washington.
