The play calling was awfully predictable at the end of the 4th quarter and into overtime. Carr said as much at the end of the game. He said he read his keys and Wallace always runs an out from that formation so when he read his keys he was able to break on the ball quicker. He said knowing coach Haley helped. Ben could have made a better throw but the play calling sure didn't help!

You guys are losing it. That INT had nothing to do with Wallace, it was a really poor throw. You can't blame Wallace for everything. The team as a whole just sucks this year, period.
Is Wallace the Lebron James of the Steelers or what? The guy gets blamed for everything.
This is about Ben in crunch time and he isn't getting it done.
My post-combine mock draft:
1. NT Louis Nix, Notre Dame
2. TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
3c. S Deone Bucannon, Washington State
4. OT James Hurst, North Carolina
5. WR Jeff Janis, Saginaw Valley State
5c. CB Walt Aikens, Liberty
6. DE Deandre Coleman, California
7. ILB Max Bullough, Michigan State
Not sure if Ben's injury is the reason for the bounced passes to his right... this isn't the first time Ben has thrown a duck in the flats. I think it has more to do with his foot work. Sometimes QB's who are gifted with big arms forget to step into the easy passes... it's no different than a WR who doesn't look the ball in or a basketball player who doesn't use the board on an open layup.
As far as Wallace not touching the defender... not sure about that one. I'm sensing Wallace isn't fundamentally sound when it comes to his running technique and this is why his routes are sloppy and his momentum gets the best of him. He runs like a duck and isn't sharp when it comes to his cuts... looks like he rounded off at the end and didn't realize the guy caught/controlled the INT.
