    It's Manny Sanders Time!!!!!

    Wally doesn't show, so I guess it's time for the next guy up.

    Let's get this young man prepared for SuperBowl #7.

    Maybe this accelerates Rainey or Maze in the slot and we end up better off in the end.

    Sanders and Brown benefit from no Wallace. I hope they both have great seasons.

    I have little faith Sanders can remain healthy for an entire season. It should be more like Brown and Cotch.

    I figure it had more to do with not being able to recover and train with team doctors last offseason than a lingering issue. Guess we'll see.

    Ed: Steelers Likely to Suspend Talks with Wallace

    WEDNESDAY, 25 JULY 2012 WRITTEN BY ED BOUCHETTE


    The Steelers believe Mike Wallace will not report today for training camp and will resume a holdout that occurred all spring over contract negotiations.

    With that stance by Wallace, the Steelers are likely to suspend negotiations on a multiple-year contract for their Pro Bowl wide receiver.

    Next move, then, is up to Wallace apparently. He can either sign his one-year, $2.472 million offer on the table and report to training camp or, stay away.

    I talked to both Max Starks and Emmanuel Sanders, two players having to learn the new offense, and I asked them if missing camp will hurt Wallace.

    Starks: "I think in general, all of us, every player should want to be in training camp. I mean, this is a new offense and there are a lot of little nuances, even though some things will be consistent as far as our coaching staff.

    "But as far as philosophy and what coach Haley wants to run, I think its important to get in here at this pace when itís a little bit slower and get adjusted to it, get adjusted to the terminology Ė thatís usually the biggest thing that usually hurts people is coming in to a new type of system with the terminology and everything and thinking that everythingís consistent and itís not. I mean Iím just happy to be here so I can start digesting all of it."

    Sanders will replace Wallace while he holds out:

    "I definitely will be in his spot at the ĎXí position, but I got a good feeling that sometime, hopefully, about 4-5 or 3 days, Mike will be showing up.
    It will definitely be different, itís going to be OTAs all over again.

    "Mike is a smart guy, he picks up on things fairly well. I donít have a problem with it, I doubt heíll have a problem with it. The coaches are going to do everything they can do to make sure he understands the playbook.

    " Itís definitely just X & Os, you donít get that experience you get being out here or in OTAs. But theyíll give him his fair share of reps so heíí catch up with us."

    I'm hoping Sanders has a great year this year, he seems like a good kid and I'd like to see him do well for us!

    I don't see this necessarily helping Sanders...with Wallace out, Sanders will now be spending more time at split end in camp.

    However, when the actual season starts, Sanders will be seeing more time in the slot.

    Sure, there may be some extra reps for Manny in the short term, but those reps will not be from the position where he will likely be playing the vast majority of his real reps when the actual games start, so how helpful is that really? (yeah, I know that all of the receivers should know how to play X, Y, and Z, but when learning a new offense, I'd rather Manny focus on his inside slot work right now rather than filling in outside).

    Once again. Wallace is the problem causing players to play out of position. Easy solution--just show up.

    I get the feeling it will be Miller who actually benefits this season more than anyone. Should Wallace and the Steelers continue to butt heads.

    They may benefit in the short term from some extra reps, but not having Wallace to draw coverage will ultimately hurt them once games start.
