    and I thought Wallace played hard against the Ravens, he should have caught that one long pass along the sidelines but he also should have had a TD if Batch hadn't overthrown him in the end zone.
    no guarantee he would've caught that wide open pass in the End Zone.

    Not trying to knock Wallace but he hasn't been reliable at all this year.

    You are probably right...but I think it is only because of injury or the fact that our practice squad WRs have been poached...

    Check out yesterdays practice notes with regard to WR injury....

    Nine players missed practice on Wednesday, including tackles Mike Adams (ankle) and Willie Colon (knee), receiver s Antonio Brown (ankle), Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) and Mike Wallace (knee), safeties Ryan Clark (hip) and Troy Polamalu (not injury related), cornerback Ike Taylor (ankle), and linebacker LaMarr Woodley (ankle).



    I think that Cotchery gets the nod if he is healthy....

    plax is old, has clumsy hands and runs HORRIBLE routes. For his height, he refuses to jump and high point a ball. Typically the closer the ball get to him, the more his legs give out and he sags to the ground.
    He has 'some' remaining speed for his age and size. And appears to be willing to do anything to keep a job, which is always good.
    But Cotch is signed and a very positive player. He gets the job done routinely. Very good no.3/4 WR.

    Wallace and Plax both had 8 TD's last year.

    I've never seen Plax described so eloquently.

    Wallace was WIDE open in the end zone, there wasn't a defender anywhere near him. if Batch throws the ball accurately that is a TD catch 99 out of 100 times.

    Jerricho > Plaxico.

    But since Brown, Wallace, and Sanders all missed practice on Wednesday, I think we dress 5 WR's this week. Normally it would be an issue that your #5 WR doesn't play on ST's, but your #1 WR does contribute on special teams, so I guess that balances itself out.
