    BROWN loves the game and is willing to do anything asked of him ... He will improve every year.

    Mike Wallace peaked in his 2nd year ... other teams know his 1 strength and they've taken that away.

    I think this is the biggest concern...

    I hope brown can improve every year as you say.

    but I'm not certain of that as he will now draw the other teams top corner.

    I'm certainly not about to "give Brown a pass." Brown may prove to be a dipstick and a diva... I certainly don't care for some of his on-field antics, and he made his share of bonehead mistakes this season. I hope the Steelers didn't overpay him, but based on this season, it looks as though they did.

    But let's not make Wallace out to be some kind of victim of mistreatment from the Steelers. IIRC, the contract he was offered was better than the one Brown got...reportedly, Wallace would have received $10 million per year (nearly $2 million more per year than Brown ended up getting), with considerably more guaranteed money than Brown got in his deal.

    If I recall, there were more than a few deep balls this year intended for Wallace that were not on target.

    Him too. Puppets gotta eat.

    I told you guys on Kip's board too that the 3rd down Ben offense was doing nothing but setting him up to get hurt.

    And that's exactly what happened isn't it?

    Art needs to stay in the owners box. Or grab a headset and start coaching.

    Yeah, and we all know Ben never got hurt under Arians' offense.

    Not to this extent. He missed two games, in 5 years, that he couldn't have played in. One in 2009 and one in 2011.

    It's funny hearing Rooney, "Our priority is keeping Ben healthy"

    But they have no clue how to do it.
