    I agree with all you said. I too think as long as he keeps his head on straight he will have a "good" season. The problem is he wants paid like a WR who has a "great" season.

    You are exactly right too, he doesn't fight for balls. He doesn't know how to highpoint a ball and get it with his arms fully extended over the defender and he isn't a great route runner who adjust his routes well. That is what the elite receivers who get paid what he wants do. Both Brown and Sanders are already better at that than he is from a "learned skill" perspective.
    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'm just curious how you know he "isn't a great route runner who adjust his routes well". Did you hear a coach say this? Has Ben complained about him not running great routes? I haven't heard anything like that from anybody. Is it just because he is fast that you assume he can't run a route well? I'd just like to know who your source is on this and when it was said.

    Wallace seems to be a good route runner. I know on Sunday Night he was shaking the Corners out of their socks, they couldnt press him

    I'd say Wallace is a very good route runner. But I agree that he often doesn't fight for the ball like he could. He's not Fitzgerald, but he's a very good wide receiver, certainly in the top 20% in the league, IMO.

    You accurately, described Wallace. I dont know what is wrong with telling the truth about a player. We can accurately critique every player on the team but when you do the same to the QB, all hell breaks loose. Everyone gets all sensitive and mad. Why?

    Very fine play by MW on that TD. Ben did a great job of avoiding pressure and then making that throw.

    The catch Brown made leaping 3 ft off the ground on 3rd down and getting creamed by Landry and still held on was 10x the catch of Wallace's TD.

    Brown made a couple incredible catches tonight. And he is amazing and dangerous after the catch. Brown deserved our MVP last year. I am glad we have him signed for the longer term.

    Would you guys call Wallace more of a breadbasket catcher, than a hands catcher?


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!
