    Let's put it this way...this season I have seen him drop more big passes then make big catches.

    Wallace sometimes makes a fantastic or circus catch, but his hands are inconsistent. He has shown me this year better adjustments to the deep ball and better high pointing (though still not great). Wallace could draw a lot more interference penalties if he got better at high-pointing.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    You pretty much hit the nail on the head. IMO that is part of the Steelers decison process. Do you pay elite dollars to a WR who excels at 25% of the WR skills and is good at the other 75%.
    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!

    touchdowns. Someone needs to score them...Wallace is able to do that with more regularity than any receiver I've ever seen play for the Steelers. Hate all you want, but scoring matters last time I checked.

    Don't attribute hate to someone who just doesn't see the Steelers paying Wallace $10M per year. That's not hate that is rational thought when we have no cap space. I really hope they sign him, but just don't see how the numbers can possibly work if his demands are in the $10M per range.

    The thing is though, Wallace actually gets in the end zone. Who does that if he isn't here? Brown appears that he could be that guy, but he hasn't shown the ability to actually score, same with Sanders and Cotchery. I wouldn't expect a draft pick to begin scoring touchdowns right away unless we draft him at 1.32

    I'd rather the Steelers find a way to keep Wallace who has actually been in the end zone quite a bit. If they can't, they can't and the Steelers move forward. As a fan, I'd rather they find a way if possible.

    Yup.

    Mike Wallace: 6 TD catches this season and 30 in his career.
    Antonio Brown: 1 TD catch this season and 3 in his career.
    Emmanuel Sanders: 1 TD catch this season and 5 in his career.

    Heath Miller can't catch all the TD's, and Wallace seems to be the only WR we have with a nose for the end zone.

    Averaged just over 6 TDs/season. That is what Wallace has gotten in his worst season.

    And Hines is my all-time favorite Steeler, but the facts are the facts.
