    What are the Steelers supposed to do? Brown deserved an extension. He has a sub par year after the injury. I would imagine Brown is going to bounce back pretty big next year.

    What is Wallace really worth? What he can get and he knows he will get more somewhere else.

    He also didn't go all out for this team this year, but that was a lot of guys on the Steelers.
    Chadman probably unfairly takes out his frustration on Brown. He is a good player. But the Steelers currently have 3 sharp, agile possession receivers, and 1 deep threat. We are losing the deep threat. Chadman's point- they old have lost Brown and replaced him with Sanders or Cotchery. Who replaces Wallace?

    Dreading seeing him in a Patriots, 49ers or Ravens jumper though...

    Really doubt the Ravens would sign him b/c they have Torey Smith.

    BUT lets hope he becomes a cancer if he goes to the PATS. Brady would be up his butt!!

    The Ravens tend to hate X-Steelers, so much, that they don't seem to even want them on their roster, with the exception of signing our X-QBs. I recall when Burress was a FA, and they went on record saying they didn't need him because they already had some really tall WR on the roster (who was a bum and never did anything.) I bet they consider Wallace soft and won't even consider him. Pats? I'm not convinced Belichick wouldn't consider him too much a douche to work with. I could see the Raiders going for him, maybe AZ. Skins. Maybe Cinci; they love our left overs. KC. Det. desperately needs another WR to pair with Megatron.

    Pats seem to do quite well without any deep threat, although they did have Moss for a few good seasons. And I suspect Pgh will draft some speedster who may or may not work out.

    I think K.C. needs someone next to BOWE.
    If Al Davis was alive he would have been a RAIDER this year already

    A draft pick replaces him. I favor Terrance Williams from Baylor.

    But there's the thing- now the Steelers need to use a high draft pick to replace him. If they lost Brown, a guy on the roster could do what he does.

    Which other position do we not draft in order to now replace Wallace?

    For the record, Chadman prefers Da'Rick Rogers out of Tenn.

    There have been many #1 WRs with far less speed than Brown and Sanders. They have plenty of speed to open up the field with or without Wally.

    All 3 of these guys get a bit of a bad rap in all of this. Wally held out and we hold that against him. Brown got his contract and we hold that against him. And Sanders hasn't outproduced either and we hold that against him. It's an impossible standard.

    In retrospect, WRs are a dime a dozen. Too bad we didn't give Brown's money to Keenan Lewis? And I think we might be better served giving Wally and/or Manny's money to Cortez eventually.

    At the end of the day, Ben can make due with Cotch, Plax, and Paulson to start next season and we can probably outproduce this year's scoring.
