    Wallace would have continued his success in Pittsburgh, it's the difference between Ben and Tannehill.

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    I wanted Wallace to stay. For a reasonable contract.

    NOBODY wanted Wallace for anywhere near what the Dolphins gave him.

    Ehh... there were a couple of fans on here saying he should get a blank check. Youare correct though, most wanted him at a reasonable price but IMO he rejected that for obvious reasons.

    On the money. The "taking the top off coverage" was the biggest thing we heard, but what many failed the see is that the league figured out Wallace for what he was an adjusted even his last season here. They wouldn't let him take the top off the coverage and he lacked the skills to do much more than be the "One trick pony" he always was.

    I did too because it took away Ben's greatest temptation of throwing an ill advised, low percentage deep pass and passing on higher percentage short to medium range passes.

    Ben still threw that pass, seemingly once per game, to Sanders, who never had any separation and who failed to convert all but maybe one attempt.

    I was one of those who wanted Wallace to stay for a reasonable contract or, alternatively, for the Steelers to get value for him.

    Chain mover vs deep ball...

    I appreciated Wallace's one trick because it was a good trick but it was all he had in his arsenal. Biggest problem with Wallace is if the ball wasn't perfect the chance of him catching it was .02%

    I'll take the 3rd Round Comp Pick for him versus paying him a ridiculous amount of money.
