Did anyone look at the Stats for Wallace prior to this year? He proved he can be very productive but this year he underperformed no doubt, but most players on that team underperformed thats why we are home.
Wallace is STILL the best receiver on the Steelers roster, even in his worst year he led all receivers in yards so I'm not going to trash the guy for one bad season.
We had a bad year so people are looking for scapegoats, you don't have to look too far plenty of goats on the steeler roster who had a bad year not just Wallace.
We didn't need a big receiver last year did we? and the year before? Thinking all of a sudden a big receiver will cure our ills isn't looking at the entire picture.
1.15 WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M
2.46 TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington
3.97c ILB Shayne Skov, Stanford
4.118 CB Philip Gaines, Rice
5.157 OT James Hurst, North Carolina
5.173c RB Jerrick McKinnon, Georgia Southern
6.192 CB Walt Aikens, Liberty
6.215c DE Deandre Coleman, California
7.230 NT Zack Kerr, Delaware
..and Brown may have cost us a game or made some mental errors but it wasn't from a lack of trying. Brown has a few things to clean up but a bad attitude isn't one of them.
While Burress only caught 3 passes I think he was responsible for 3 touchdowns. Given he was rarely on the field I think that he has a great ratio of plays to steeler touchdowns.

There are holes that occur becuase of age and you cannot prevent those. Wallace is a younger player and that is the difference.
Again, I was as displeased with his play as anybody this year, but his departure will weaken the team.
