are you sure about that?

The TD and not getting his feet down was pathetic. Cotchery also dropped a TD pass (Good D). Wallace had a fumble. We just couldnt make a play to save our lives
Agreed. I am sickened by him but don't wish an injury on him. Now maybe we know why he lasted until the 3rd round?

Would love to have had Plaxico on that same pass in the end zone that Wallace stepped out of bounds on. We're missing that tall target in that situation.
Like I have said since last season, Antonio Brown is the best WR on this team and it shows when he is out. Wallace is a complementary piece to brown and he knows it which is why he doesn't want to stay in Pittsburgh. he knows Brown's star will outshine him and his ego can't handle that.

On this we can agree. It must be the upcoming holiday.

The first glimpse we got into Wally's apathy/disinterest/effort was in the final drive against GB in the SuperBowl. We had let go of Santonio and it was Wally's time to step up. And he just looked lost/confused/disinterested - I have no idea what to call it.
I don't know what it is. He makes big plays. He gets really excited for his teammates when they make a big play. But other times he turns into a zombie. Something's not right. Last night he looked beyond awful. But then I saw him blocking on a JD run. I was taken back. Every time he looks lost, he surprises me and does something.
Makes me wonder what's going on with him sometimes? Does he have a nagging injury? Is it a mental issue? I can't explain it, but it looks like Wally plays like the expression on Jay Cutler's face sometimes.
I agree with you NJ. Lefty made a bad throw and skipped that ball well ahead of Wallace. No one is making that catch.

I'm pissed at Wallace but AB is not a better receiver sorry. Speed is the name of the game and Wallace has it. I remember when the Nation hated Santonio Holmes for stealing the MVP from Ben (Like it was Tones fault). Wallace was praised like AB is being praised. Once Wallace leaves will the Nation turn on AB as well? Wallace blows the top off of coverage with his speed but he has got to put forth more effort. He should have had a TD pass (Didnt get feet down)
