    Steelers just got better and most of their fans dont even realize it!!

    This is going to sound strange since I was one who defended Mike Wallace over the years, but the Steelers are now better that he is gone. Not from a player stand-point but from a character stand-point. Think about it. This dude jumped at the first highest bid he saw. He didnt go to the Patriots, the 49ers, or any other team that is a contender to win a championship. He went to the 7-9 Miami Dolphins. A team that is hardly a contender to win a championship. A team who really is still unsettled at the teams most important position, quarterback. A position that directly affects whether or no Mike Wallace has success with them. Mike Wallace went from one of the leagues storied franchises who are often a super bowl contender to a team that more than likely will be looking for another QB this time next year. All because he wanted more money. All because money was the most important thing to him.

    Good riddance.

    The Steelers are better that he is gone.

    The only part I might disagree with is ... don't most real fans realize it?


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    One thing is for sure the Rooney's have to be thrilled that Wallace turned down their offer once they saw what Haley's offense actually was.

    Because Wallace is Haley's offense as it is now, is basically useless.

    Yeah I hear ya. Think about this, he didn't shop around. Check out areas to live. Schools and areas to raise kids. He didn't pray on it. He just jumped at the first huge contract. This is going to come back to haunt him.

    Well I dont think 64 receptions and 8 TD's is useless. But regardless...I am glad this dude is gone.

    13 yards a catch for Wallace in Haley's offense is wasting his talent.

    I have to bust you on this Dub. There was 3 days before today that teams talked to his agent. It is possible he had other offers and liked the fins the best. We don't know what went on. But I am sure your main point is correct. He took the biggest money offer. I think he even said or hinted not long ago that was his plan. Which has now been reported at 60mil instead of 65mil? Will see in the coming days which is correct.

    7-9 dolphins was exactly 1 game worse then the 8-8 steelers. with a better draft pick and a hell of a lot more cap space to improve
