    Re: Mike Wallace interviewed on NFL Radio

    Personally, I think he's staying. It's real easy to spend other teams money but the economics don't make a whole lot of sense. Assuming the Steelers tender Wallace, teams will value his worth and make an offer that they know the Steelers won't match. That's all fine and dandy but they're not going to break their own bank for a receiver who's sole attribute is speed. If the money isn't bad enough, teams will also have to give up their first round pick. That in itself is a high price to pay.

    Maybe I'm underestimating Wallace's value but his production in the second half of the season should make teams pause before making an outrageous offer.

    But then again, what do I know?

    I think he gets the first round tender and someone else signs him.

    The thing that gets me about all of this (and the media has implied this as well), is any idea that a WR is going to put the Pats over the top. I sure hope they do something like this. Please keep ignoring you defense New England.

    They had probably the greatest top end WR the game has ever known in Randy Moss and what that get''em?

    The PAts Defense held up very good against an highpower Giants team. They applied plenty of pressure to Eli, controlled the running game and did just enough against the receivers.. The lack of any real Threat on the outside killed them this year. That defense of theirs is very young and got to be pretty good late in the season.

    Re: Mike Wallace interviewed on NFL Radio

    Here is a list of reasons why I don't expect any team to give up a first round draft pick to get Mike Wallace from the Steelers:

    Dwayne Bowe
    Vincent Jackson
    Wes Welker
    Stevie Johnson
    Brandon Lloyd
    Marques Colston
    Reggie Wayne
    Mario Manningham
    Laurent Robinson
    Robert Meachem
    Braylon Edwards
    and maybe Desean Jackson


    All free agents. Maybe none are better than Wallace, but they also don't require a 1st round pick to obtain.

    One game does not make a champion. They struggled on defense all year. And I would hardly call the Giants a high powered offense.

    Other than DeSean Jackson none of those receivers can take the top off of coverage like Wallace. Wallace, whether people understand this are not is a defense changer.

    BTW, Reports are the Pats will franchise Welker.

    thanks for the info. I guess that takes one WR off this list. Fortunately, it also very well may take a team off the list too. Can the Pats really afford to commit 15+ million to new receiver contracts? As has been said...they need to find a defense still.

    I think they'll try to upgrade but, as you said, $$$ at one position could be an issue. You have to figure Chad Johnson (I'm not calling him by that dumb made up name) and Branch have to be about done. That leaves just Welker and the TE's.
