    Something many of you didn't know about Wallace vs Brown...

    Heard this from Dulac today, The reason Wallace was upset about last season is that during the course of the year when Brown removed Ward from the starting lineup he switch the x position with Wallace for the z because he didn't know the plays of the former and that's when he blossomed and Wallace numbers fell off. So there you go coming from Dulac he knows what goes on and that's where the anger came from. So another reason to hate or understand? Nothing to do with Brown about being jealous just was upset about the switch.

    But they made the switch back this season and that's why Brown didn't have a good season aside from injuries.

    Dulac is a schmuck. Has he walked home from Indy yet?

    If true, unprofessional and childish behavior by Wallace. Suck it up and go play. Run the routes and catch the ball, and you'll get your opportunities.


    What a diva.

    You're right.

    And next year, the Steelers should move Pouncey from OC to LG, to allow Legursky to fit in better. And then Pouncey should accept less money for playing a lesser position.

    If the coaching staff decides it's better for the team, darn tootin' Pouncey should accept a move to LG. And since when is LG a "lesser position"? Faneca got paid pretty well for playing LG, and so would Pouncey, if he performed at a high level.

    That's crap!
    Wallace has been and always was put in position to stretch the field. If he doesn't know every WR position on the field, then shame on him. He should know the assignments of the TE too.

    Starting to think we are reading the same article, but getting a different understanding of it..

    So, to clarify where we stand on this, Chadman's understanding is that:

    A- Brown steps in for Ward into the X position, Wallace was in the Z.
    B- Brown doesn't understand the routes of the X position, so Wallace & Brown swap- Wallace moves from Z to X.
    C- Brown shines in Z position, a la Wallace, Wallace's numbers drop as a result of different routes.
    D- Wallace is unhappy about this because he's in his contract year- lower production = lower pay.
    E- Wallace doesn't get offered the money he wants, Brown gets healthy pay increase.
    F- Wallace & Brown swap back responsibilities this season- Brown is now statistically inferior to Wallace again.

    Is that how everyone read that article?

    If so- Chadman can understand the frustration.

    If your take is the truth, Wallace needed to just be happy to do what he can to bring wins. He didn't. He pouted and held out, letting Brown shine. The attitude is the problem, which is further hurt by dropping passes and not fighting for the ball.
