    Wallace wants to stay, but only at his price.

    That was BEFORE the season. I would bet right now though that the offense itself, is more of a hindrance for Wallace than money is.

    They weren't that far off on guaranteed money. If both sides wanted to they could get it done.

    Wouldn't Brown have been an RFA like Sanders this off season?

    Steelers wouldn't have lost him. Plus- we'd have seen his underperforming season & paid accordingly.

    They WILL lose Wallace, and be forced to draft his replacement.

    Good analysis Chadman!

    It makes Chadman sad that Pappy would only be happy if Chadman, Hawaiiansteel & Crash were happy elsewhere...


    Anyway- why are you still under the bed?

    That's rubbish. Firstly, Rooney was adamant- so much so that he sacked Arians- that the Offense needed to run more. The result? We ran less this year than ANY YEAR UNDER ARAINS. Even the 2012 Colts, under ARAINS, ran the ball more than the 2012 Steelers.
    I don't recall Rooney saying he wanted to run MORE. He said he wanted to run more EFFECTIVELY.

    Well then, thank goodness that the Steelers witnessed Wallace's underperforming season before they threw good money after bad, eh?

    We didn't run more effectively.

    as far as sack totals through the first 9 games.... Ben was sacked 17 times and I think 4 of those were in the last 2 minutes of losses. I think they did a good job keeping Ben clean until he started the ugly Ben crap. After the injury he went back to old Ben and had 12 sacks in 4 games.

    ..and last but not least. Once Wallace turned down the money it's no longer his money.

    Then he should be doubly miffed then.
