    x2 Wallace make our team better, unless he becomes a morale liability, or unless his contract results in not signing Antonio Brown.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    I don't understand all of the angst & anger about Wallace not signing his tender. His contract situation is a negotiation between himself & the Steelers - if he signs the tender, he loses what minimal leverage he has. Plus, it's not like he's being militant about the whole thing, mouthing off in public like T.O. would.

    I don't blame him for not signing the tender in April, over 3 months from the start of training camp. There's no sense in him risking injury during off-season activities, as an injury would further reduce his leverage.

    Let this play out, there's plenty of time to get this done.

    It's not what you do, it's how you do it.

    Ahhh, a voice of reason. We'll have none of that here Mister!

    There's nothing wrong with a kid fresh off of his first Pro Bowl trying to do the best he can for himself. It doesn't make him a bad Steeler or something.

    Mike Wallace makes our team better. Mike Wallace makes Antonio Brown, Manny Sanders, Jerricho Cotchery, and Heath Miller better. Mike Wallace makes Ben Roethlisberger better. He takes the top off the defense. He opens up the underneath routes for all the other guys because teams have no choice but to roll coverage to Mike's side. He can score from anywhere on the field and that is an asset that not many teams have. He fell off in the second half last year but come on, he was playing with a QB who was playing on a broken frickin' ankle. Ben could put nothing on the deep balls and when he did he had limited accuracy. I agree that Mr. Wallace doesn't deserve Fitzgerald money but I would say something comparable to Vincent Jackson would be fair. The Steelers will find a way to keep both Wallace and Brown, they always find a way to keep the most important guys. This team is in somewhat of a transition but those are two that will lead the organization into the future. The WR's and Ben make this team a Super Bowl contender in a league that has turned more towards the pass. They need to find a couple of guys in the draft that can keep Ben upright and they will be as dangerous as anyone!!!

    Wallace can't throw the ball to himself. He has flaws as a WR. Wanting Top 3 WR money is nuts since that is in the range of what franchise QBs make. He doesn't deserve it.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I agree that he has flaws, he needs to do a better job of going after the ball in the air and he could develop more consistent hands but saying that, the numbers he has put up speak to the fact that he can be one of the games greatest's if he continues to make himself better. Some of us forget that the guy is only in his third year and has not even entered his prime.
