Ben: Yes Mike you were fast.
Wally: That's right I'm fast. You might want to mention it to Charlie for me. I'm an elite WR and only talk to elite players.
Ben: Roger that Mike.
Wally: Hey Coach. Hey Coach. You might wanna remind Mr Rooney I ran by those guys right there.
Mike T: Should I tell him you ran by the ball too?
Wally: Yep, you tell him Charlie's a limp wristed chump and I'm the greatest WR ever. With a good QB I woulda scored and you know it coach.
Mike T: So you ran by the ball on purpose.
Wally: Yep so you can see why Young Money needs to see it rain.
Mike T: Anything else you want me to tell him.
Wally: Yeah coach, yeah. Tell him that an Elite WR needs an Elite QB. And if Mr Rooney wants to get the best out of his investment, give me Ben's contract and then go get Aaron Rodgers to throw me the ball.
Mike T: You want me to tell Mr Rooney to get rid of Ben.
Mike T: You one trick crazy.
Wally: And tell him I need an elite coach. Elite WRs need Elite coaches.
Mike T: Let me run that by him.
Wally: Yeah. Yeah. That's it. Tell Mr Rooney I run right by him too.
Flippy needs to start an elite WR Facebook conversation to rival the elite QB Facebook conversation.
However, Wallace has never high-pointed the ball well nor drawn interference through body position well. It hardly matters where Wallace came from at this point. He has been in the league for 4 years. He should be improving in these areas.
I'm a Wallace fan. I like him. He seems like a good guy personally. Still, some simple tweaks to his game could yield big results and lead to us winning more games. I'm disappointed that he is not more aggressive when the ball is in the air.

I still don't understand how you break off a deep route while running full speed past the defense and are some how responsible for coming back to an under thrown ball by about 5- 10 yards and beat a defender who already has position on you because the pass was that bad. This borders on laughable at some point to blame the WR for a QBs ineptitude.
I've never thought of Wallace as "elite" but I did think he was the next level down. He was starting to run all the routes and make all the plays but this year he has seriously declined. I don't recall him ever dropping as many passes as he has this year. Hell, I didn't even blame him for not making a play on the ball Lefty short-hopped to him last week. But this week, when we needed people to step up, he didn't catch the short pass a little behind him that was intercepted and the two deep balls he didn't fight for. He HAS to do better if he wants to stay on this team. Otherwise start Sanders and Brown (when healthy) and use Wallace as the 3rd receiver like in his rookie year.
Yeah Wally needed to soup can the Browns DBs. Elite WRs can eat soup off guys heads too.
I agree the the pass he dropped was on him. But guys, the long ball wasn't just a little short, it was very short. Charlie Batch took full responsibility for that one. The momentum is on the side of the defenders because they didn't have to adjust and put the brakes on like Wallace would've had to. He would have needed a 6 foot vertical to win that one after changing direction and losing all of his momentum.
