    There is no reason not to use Wallace to spread the field a couple of times a game. Maybe Haley is waiting for later to open things up. Don't see how that would go against the current plans. The O line has shown they are capable of giving Ben plenty of time for a deep ball.

    Wallace is still on his way to a 1000 yard season (right along with Brown - that's TWO 1,000 yard receivers AGAIN). He is second on the team behind Miller with 4 TDs. He only has four fewer catches less than Brown so far. He may not be getting deep like before but his speed is being used in the short passing game still AND he is running as hard as ever if not more so.

    Soooo, I don't get all of the nay saying. A very BALANCED attack by Big Ben.

    Antonio Brown 40 480 12.0 27 1
    Mike Wallace 36 459 12.8 82 4
    Heath Miller 35 336 9.6 30 6

    Actually, Chadman thinks Wallace is playing quite well, outside of the previous week's drops.

    It's a new offence we are seeing. It could be that Wallace is somewhat more redundant in it. That said, Chadman is still convinced Wallace is the best attacking weapon not named Roethlisberger on the team.

    Looks like he'll be playing elsewhere next season, and personally Chadman isn't super happy about that. Chances are, some team will use him as a deep threat, and he'll be dangerous for someone else. Will the Steelers survive losing him? Probably. Will they be better off without him? No, not likely.

    Wallace and Brown seem to be neck and neck this year...Brown has 4 more catches for 21 more yards, but Wallace has 3 more TD's. Yet people criticize Wallace because he is not living up to some imaginary contract. In real life, Wallace is making $2.7 million for this season. Brown signed a long term deal averaging $8 million per year. Frankly, we are getting much more bang for our buck with Wallace than Brown right now, but you never hear about Brown not living up to his new real contract...only Wallace not living up to his imaginary contract.

    similarly, we hear all this crap about Mike Wallace being a me-first kinda guy, but what has he ever said or acted out to show that?

    I see Brown hamming it up pretty regularly on the field. He might be worse than Santonio was in that regard.

    Wallace is worth about what Brown got. As I said in the off sesason let this season play itself out. I think that they are worth equal money is proving itself to be an accurate assessment. Both are valuable parts of the team and it would be great if they were both here for many more years, however that is totally up to Wallace.

    Last year, we threw a lot of deep balls to Wally. Ben got sacked a lot.

    This year, we don't go deep and Ben stays upright.

    If you don't have a good/great OLine, you don't throw deep. That's football 101. Haley seems to get what BA missed. And I'd rather have a healthy Ben going into the post season anyway. Because then, you can change tendencies and game plan for 1 game.

    We've now got this violent RB, that's exciting the OLine, and we're on the verge of attacking teams with a running game that will open up the play action. PA is a way to throw down field without as much risk to getting your QB hit/killed.

    This offense is starting to work for us. Who cares about the individuals?

    The more this offense works, the more of a threat Wally becomes. How do you cover Wally, Brown, Sanders, Heath and stop JD? We're developing a balance we haven't had for a while on Offense. That's going to be hard to defend. Wally needs help over the top. The other 3 guys are now likely 1 on 1. That's 6 defenders in the box and if you get a hat on a hat, JD had one guy to beat and he's gonna hit that guy hard and bounce off him many times for a big gain. If you go bigger to stop the run, Wally's gonna get some 1 on 1.

    Do you think it would be any different if WALLACE got the money he held out for???

    Wallace has shown to me that he's not worth the money he is asking for.

    Sorry Ruthless but this post makes absolutely no sense at all. Are you suggesting Wallace should sign his next contract in the $3.5 mill per year range? LOL...
