    Here's a true replacement for Wallace

    Terrell Sinkfield

    dude ran a 4.19 40 today at the Minnesota pro day (he played at Northern Iowa).

    He's got great speed and adjusts to the ball much better than Wallace does. He looks like a true receiver with speed, not just a really fast guy.

    Replace a 4000 career yard, 32 TD WR with a guy likely to go undrafted...

    Al Davis still lives!!

    If only it were that easy.

    did you watch the video? I'm more impressed by the skills this guy shows than the videos I saw of Wallace coming out of school...and I like Wallace.

    I've given up watching WRs in college. I thought Limas Sweed had one of the best skillsets of nearly any WR coming out of college and I was ecstatic we drafted him.

    I really think WR is a dime a dozen position and comes down to how hard a guy is willing to work at it.

    On the flip side you've got Hines Ward who had no business succeeding in the NFL based on his physical skills who was one of the Steeler all time greats.

    Don't get me wrong, if you have Randy Moss, AJ Green, etc., then I'm ok drafting a guy like that, but once you're past the upper tier, it's a complete crapshoot.

    Chill D, it's good. He looks like he's worth taking a flier on. But low competition has to be taken into account. Chadman just gets a chuckle out of the 'how easy it will be to replace Wallace' crew.

    I don't think it will be easy to replace Wallace. But not as hard as Megatron, AJ Green, ETC. Wallace wanted to succeed. Wallace had a good mentor in Ward. But what did he do becides run fast his 1st season in the NFL? That can be replaced if the rookie can catch also. I like Wallace but would not over pay for a GOOD WR. If he gets hurt what will he be then? NO ONE KNOWS. We have replaced GOOD WR's before. And my #1 argument about Wallace. He could not step it up in the superbowl like Holmes did before him.

    His other stats are maybe even more startling.

    And D Rock says he can catch too. Wow!

    I agree with you, Chadman. For all of his flaws, Wallace produced some significant numbers, and they are going to be hard to replace.

    Wallace himself was a little known player when we draft him. He went in the 3rd round - not like he was a top 10 pick or something.

    Actually, Wallace was quite successful at college playing in the SEC for Mississippi, averaging 18.9 ypc for his college career, catching 15 TD's in 3 seasons.

    He's 7th overall in the SEC since 1956 for YPC career average. He had the highest YPC of the SEC in 2008. He was top 10 in the SEC in both his Jnr & Snr year for yards & catches.

    It's not like he was Johnny Obscure.

    And those stats show that he was equally effective WITHOUT Ben extending plays.
