    It's hard to say if it's lack of effort or if that is just Wallace. Tomlin named him a one trick pony for a reason. Have we ever seen him really fight for the ball? He is what he is... a very dangerous speedster that commands respect from the opposition. But I don't think he's ever going to make the tough catches like Hines or the acrobatic catches like Swan.

    No way was that ball 4 or 5 feet short. at real time i almost thought it was a catch.
    he comes back to the ball with a lunge it's a catch. It's a catch i think I could make.

    Not sure what you saw but the play and the replay showed the ball landing right at Wallace's feet. He even got his hands on it but just bent over and didn't go to ground to get it. That was a catchable ball, maybe a hard catch but he could have caught it.
    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!

    Yup, ball was almost a catch.
    At least make an effort

    I can't blame Wallace for not catching that ball. He's expecting a typical bullet from Lefty and instead he gets fooled with a change up. Nope, that was on Lefty the whole way.

    That's not to say I give Wallace a pass for his inconsistent play this year. I've always been a big Mike Wallace fan but this year his lack of focus at times has been maddening. If he wants to be considered in the elite class he is not helping his cause with his play.

    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.
    Good points.

    I don't blame Wallace for not catching that TD pass. l also don't blame Wallace for not catching that low fastball that Leftwich threw. I do blame him for not even making the slightest of attempt. Even Collinsworth pointed out the lack of effort. On the flip side, I won't give him too much credit for the catch against the Chiefs. He used his hand to deflect the ball and trapped it between his legs. It's not that impressive. I do blame him for the droppsies he's had all year.

    I still don't think he's the all-around WR that Holmes was. And I still don't think the Steelers will pay him the money he thinks he deserves. He'll probably get it from some moron team but it won't be the Steelers. IMO, Wallace hasn't done enough to convince the Steelers that he's worth more than what he was already offered.

    I think Steeler fans are biased from years of watching Hines Ward gut it all and giving 110% in every game. Ward never shied away from contact, made unbelievable efforts to get that extra yard or first down, a knew how to throw a nasty block for his fellow teammates. If Hines is the yardstick to measure by, Wallace hasn't even made it to the first inch.
