    Now I completely miss the correlation between the linebackers and the receivers in question here. Many thought before the draft that Lee was better. I dare say most draftniks had Lee higher.
    I fail to see that relating to a receiver WE TRIED TO SIGN who refused to and SETTLING for another receiver.

    This is the problem NJ.
    No matter what we say, no matter the facts, you argue that Wallace was better yet we chose Brown.

    The facts do not support that the team chose Brown over Wallace. Very few here believe that. Those who do are ignoring the facts.

    High school dance. Girl 1 turns you down, you need to move on to girl two.

    Dont blame the dude who is doing the asking if you think girl one was finer.

    That is all it comes down to. It aint rocket science, really.
    well im with you with the DE's. we might be the only 2 that have been saying that before we drafted them

    Back to the topic.. im upset that they didnt keep negotiating with wallace before offering that contract to Ab cause I (everyone really) knew that was the end of wallace being a steeler.
    wallace was as close to a #1 receiver the team had. if the offense wants to get better, we should have built on that. now AB is #1 and we're searching for a #2.

    same thing happened a few years ago when santonio was #1, hines #2, wallace #3.(it was also the last time the offense ranked in the top half of the league, coincidence?)
    we traded holmes and started all over again by having wallace move to #1. it may have cost us a SB, in fact

    how many years do we have to see the offense struggle before paying 2 wideouts what they are worth. we've certainly seen enuff bitching about it on these boards

    Wouldn't you?
    i'd be happy with that too

    i'd be freakin ecstatic if we had wallace, brown, wheaton , and sanders (or a 3rd round draft pick in his place from the pats) going into the season
    wouldnt you?

    The issue isn't refusing to pay two wideouts what they are worth...

    The issue is refusing to pay two wideouts what they think​ they are worth...

    Wallace screwed Wallace.

    He wanted $20 mil guaranteed.

    The Steelers offered $15 mil.

    Wallace again says he wants $20 mil guaranteed.

    The Steelers up the offer to $18 mil.

    Wallace for the 3rd time says he wants $20 mil guaranteed.

    Negotiations over.

    I told you guys years ago, the Hines Ward holdout forever changed the way this team conducts their business. They felt Hines took advantage of Plax's departure, and they felt they gave into him. Art II has vowed never to do that again.

    Looking at ABs stats prior to his extension. It sure looks like they paid him what he thinks he's worth

    Why. Ive been hearing that since plax/Hines were here.

    Plax signed for a little more then EL's and okobi salary combined.

    They were willing to go 5yr 50 mil on Wallace. Increase the guaranteed money and they maybe get away with 8.5-9 per year and give AB around 5 per yr. and that's even a little high for 2 year stats

    They could pay both. Money wasn't the issue. Wallace's pride was.
