    His actions and attitude this season show he is only interested in one thing, and thats getting paid. And I have no problem with that. Its a brutal game and you need to take care of your financial well being. But he deosnt care about being a Steeler. I think like many NFL guys he doesn't care which team he's are on. He can wear blue and silver, teal and white, or black and gold, but the way he held himself this year shows he is only looking out for the $$$$.

    It's funny how us fans scream about a Super Bowl every year while most of the players (I think) look to secure the money before they really worry about a ring.

    As for paying our WRs, I think we overpaid a bit on Brown, but Wallace doesnt deserve any more then that contract. I also don't see Wallace as a team's #1 WR, but he'll find someone to pay him close to that level.
    If he does... hooray for him. It's foolish to expect loyalty from a player when we all know a team will drop a guy in a heart beat if something better comes a long.

    Speaking of Wallace. I was reading this article : http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...o-lose/page/26

    It says Wallace "was targeted a team-high 116 times this season, but he caught just 64 of them for 838 yards." Is it true that he dropped or was over/underthrown 52 times? That sound like a lot.

    Are you implying that it's a two-way street??

    If you walk the company line, the Steelers are often loyal to a fault. There have been plenty of players who were allowed to keep their starting positions, even though most other teams would accurately perceive that the players really should be benched or cut. How much overdue was the benching/cutting of Kordell Stewart, Kendall Simons, Gildong, Kirkland, Chad Scott, Deewayne Washington, Hampton, Troy Edwards, Mark Malone, et al? If you get in the "buddy buddy" system with the Rooneys, they let you stay and play longer than should be the case.

    Don't give up on Wallace yet, but I heard a report that the Steelers was in negotiation with his agent and also Mendenhall. Heard it on Black n Gold radio I heart.

    Great, so they are working hard at getting locker room cancers back on the team? I don't buy it. They can't be that stupid.

    The Steelers don't turn on players or change their mind on players because the fans want them to. They thought highly of Wallace before the season so what makes you think they all of a sudden feel different now because you do?

    You mean, the people who actually know what goes on in the locker room might have a different evaluation than a fan? What a concept!!

    It really doesn't matter to me if they bring back Mendy and Wallace one way or the other. They do this for a living. I just watch (I like to watch... )
