Everyone knows my pure hatred for Mike Wallace, I wish it was him that got hit hard and not Cotchery and that he would be out a few games.

Anyway, Wanting big money? Must put up some big numbers and be one of the most scrutinized of players!

A bullshit no appearance tonight, A BS interference call (imo) **** poor stats.



Remind me? What day does the season end? So I know he's ****ed off?

I've argued since last season that Wallace is in no way shape or form a number one WR. Maybe the Steelers will draft a big sure-handed receiver for Roethlisberger to throw to before he's 40 years or old or dead.

I taped the game and but got home in time to see the 4th quarter. Wallace made no effort on the pass to him late in the game on 3rd down. Wallace is playing "not to get hurt". The sooner he is out of here the better.

Can anyone imagine Hines, Swann, Stallworth, or any of our great WRs of years gone past playing this listless and pansy-like?

If I had to tell someone who our number one receiver was I would definitely tell them AB. He goes out and gives 110percent and plays with heart. Wallace on the other hand has no heart. He made no effort on that low throw from Leftwich last night and should have been able to get both feet down in the endzone on 3rd and goal. This was the biggest game of the year against our biggest rival and he proved why he doesn't deserve the big money he wants.

No way anyone should be defending Wallace out here. He absolutely didn't put any extra effort into catching passes last night and IMO his true diva came out.

Seriously people think he's better that AB? lol at that if so.. AB gets open and catches, MW does neither!

Lol ... this is all I'm saying ... is look at the numbers ... He produces the most on the team... and has ...

He didn't try for the ball ... yeah your right ... but it was an awfully thown ball to a wide open reciever ... Also Leftwhich cannons the ball , he was expecting to be a decent pass and instead Leftwhich rockets the ball into the ground and Mike probably didn't have time to react to the ball since Leftwhich rockets the ball

And playing not to get hurt ... I don't know where you get that from ... He fumbled yes, everybody makes mistakes ... but cause he didn't dive head first, he's playing not to get hurt ... and if he is playing not to get hurt .... GOOD FOR HIM, I'm sorry but HIS MONEY is more important then YOU LIKING HIM ... are YOU going to take care of him if he gets hurt????

I know if your job told you you were going to be laid off , or what not but still needed you to work for a year just to know your most likely gone ... are you going to give 100 % ? ... I know that happened to me, was told I was going to be laid off but they still needed us for like 3 months to get a Big stock, so they wouldn't run out... do you think PPL came in and worked as hard??? ... **** no I/they didn't... why should you??

People who demand $100m contracts are certainly entitled to NEVER fumble the ball. Out of 745 career receptions for Fitzgerald, just 5 fumbles! And last coming in 2007, 5 years ago!

Mike Wallace, demanding $100m contract. 217 career receptions, 5 fumbles, And last coming last night!

That doesn't scream value for money!

Can't defend anybody after a performance like that last night....It was terrible.....But the Steelers better be prepared to draft another WR early in the draft with no Mike Wallace......I do have a question for all you wanting Mike Wallace gone.....

Would you really be comfortable heading into next year with AB, Sanders, Cotchery as our top three WR's?.....I sure wouldn't.......For all you ball washing AB he still doesn't find the endzone as a WR...I'm not talking about his return skills.......Five career receiving TD's for AB....WOW

I have always been a fan of Manny Sanders but still I expect more from him and really he hasn't shown he is nothing more then a slot WR at this point.....

Cotchery showed last night why the Jets cut him.........Vets with experience shouldn't have made the pre-snap penalties like he did....Plus Cotchery should have held onto that ball late the game.......True he took a shot but he is supposed to bet that tough WR that makes catches like that......

Back to Wallace after his performance last night yea the Steelers should let him walk if Wallace continues to show a **** poor effort.......But the Steelers better draft a WR early and it better be a WR with some size and speed........Noway you can head into next season with just AB, Sanders, and Cotchery..........

I would be more comfortable with them then Wallace. Because Wallace is a primadonna. And that mentality is an anti-Steeler mentality.

I'll be honest, I'm kind of a Mike Wallace band wagon jumper. I love him if he produces and I hate him if he doesn't. Just because of the circumstances last night and having Byron Leftwich throwing him the ball, I would defend him. However he fumbled in his own territory. And therefore he sucks.

I would be 100 percent fine with those three as starters. Add Heath into the mix and I think we'd be pretty good still, I may be wrong, but that's my gut feeling. Heck, last night Manny was basicially a one-man show, he was the only reciever worth a d*mn. Wallce did nothing, and Cotch did nothing.

I do think you are too quick to bash Cotch, he's played his role well thus far and he's been pretty
consistent when called upon. IMO he's better than many other 4th string WRs. He just had a bad game. So did Wallace.

My main problem with Wallace is his lack of heart and his timidness this year. Oh, and I do agree that the Steelers (if they let Wallace walk) should see if they can get any young WR in the draft to groom next year. But in the meantime, I think AB, Sanders, and Cotch would be fine.

Cotchery is an aging 4th WR and on the decline of his career....lol I like Manny Sanders and I keep waiting for him to show more but really he is nothing more then a slot WR at this point.....I agree he made some plays last night but he is good for a couple big catches a game.....He needs to show he can be a legit 16 game starter in this league and he hasn't yet.....

Ok those three as our top three WR's next year then our so called number 1 WR Antoino Brown only has 5 career TD receptions......Yea will be just fine at WR next year....lol I really don't get the love affair with Cotchery......He is nice for depth purposes but I don't head into next year with Cotch as the third WR......

I think Manny would be good for a little more than a couple big catches a game if he got his chance. AB and Wallace are obviously one and two and with the huge mix of receivers that the Steelers have been using Manny has kind of faded to the background a bit. And once he gets the chance to start he gets Byron Leftwich throwing him the ball. Coming into their first season I thought Manny would beat out AB for a higher spot, but then he got injured and everyone forgot about him. Give him a little more PT and I think he can prove to be extremely effective.

SnakeEyes43
11-19-2012, 12:54 PM
I don't disagree with anything you're saying. AB and Sanders aren't proven starters yet, Cotch is older, etc. But I think we'd still win with those three guys at WR. To be honest, if you let Wallace go, I don't think the production drops off much from this year to the next. And with Wallace gone, AB will get more redzone looks; we'll just have to see how he does with the opportunity given.

And I don't have a crush on Cotch, but he's played his part and done everything asked of him up to this point. He's been a very servicable back up.

I have a 3.4 GPA so only if I was clever huh ... But this is a Steelers Website none of this actually matters

Your the biggest joke on the Site and everybody knows it ...

putting effort in... he's going to get a big contract after this year no matter what (as long as he produces and makes it out injury free, which he is doing...now if he gets hurt is he going to get a big contract? probably not)... his stats are just fine ... his stats are better/ on par than/with your precious AB

and Adrian Peterson fumbled the most in like his first 3 years ... he was the best running back in the league then, and he fixed that problem and is still the best running back in the league...

as far as Mike fumbles vs Fitz fumbles ... check out his other stats vs Fitz through the first 3.5 years of career , Mike Stats match up with Fitz through the first 3.5 years ... not saying Mike is as good as a reciever as Fitz but I mean production wise, he's up there numbers don't lie...

and as far as this 100 mil dollar contract ... I've yet to see any interview with him , where HE HIMSELF is actually saying that ... reports are blah blah blah ... his agent maybe trying to get one, but why not try?? ... No I would not pay him that much, I've stated many times I think he worth about 7mil a year type of contract ... but hey what the heck why not try to get the most you can??

I have always been a Sanders fan and said his rookie year he would be the better of the two but still I want to see more....No doubt Lefty effected Sanders production last night....But even when Ben is in there I still want to see more from Sanders......He runs the best routes on the team and has so much potential....But at some point potential has to turn into production.....

Sanders has been plagued with injury is the only issue. Give him some time like we gave AB and I guarantee he'll produce.

But what have we seen from Sanders that suggests he is a 16 game starter in the NFL?.....Yes he does come up with some big time catches at times and runs silky smooth routes......But there is also periods when he is a ghost on the field....Not just injuries holding him back......He is usually matched up with a defenses third or fourth corner and at times he doesn't produce at all.....I want him to succeed big time since I do think he has the potential to be the best WR on the roster....

But back to my point....You really would be comfortable with a Brown, Sanders, and Cotchery as our top three WR's heading into next year?.........Cotchery is in his early 30s and really offers nothing more then a 4th or 5th WR at this point in his career......

With Haley's offense he runs, he needs a BIG receiver. I wish Wes Lyons would have worked out for us, dude was a freak of nature if he added on some more muscle. We have the 2 quick guys in Brown/Sanders. A good 3 receiver in Cotchery. We just need a big bodied receiver. It needs to happen soon before Ben is to old.

I agree in a sense. He didn't quit on the team. The Ravens made sure he wasn't a factor, just like we did with Torrey Smith. He was doubled on almost every play (which Collinsworth pointed out). As usual he's being overly criticized. He deserves some criticism after last night, but not the lynching he's getting. Calling him a cancer and all that is absolutely absurd but it's clear that his head wasn't in the game last night. The fumble and lack of effort on that pass are worthy of criticism without question, but let's not act like he's the reason we lost. Hell, if it wasn't for him completely owning the DB on the first play, we may not have ever scored a TD in that game. That's 40-something free yards. Again, his performance is worth some criticism, but with the line pass protecting horribly, Byron being hurt (and just absolutely horrid), he honestly doesn't deserve the all the hate he's getting right now.

You've got to be kidding right? He fumbled the ball away; he didn't even attempt to step up to make the catch in the 4th quarter. And this excuse of him being double teamed all the time is getting old. Andre Johnson, Reggie Wayne, Megatron, Larry Fitzgerald are all double teamed too.

The guy is a 3/5 wide receiver. Period. And now he has a nonchalant attitude because he didn't get the money he wanted. He shows NO INTENSITY WHATSOEVER and he was an embarrassment to this franchise considering how guys where out there busting their asses to win that game! The guy QUIT ON THIS TEAM with his nonchalant attitude against our biggest rival. And your still making excuses for this guy????????? Really?????????????

If I was one of those players who busted their *** last nite, I would seriously go have a talk with Tomlin and tell him how unfair it is to have Wallace on the field with the rest of the guys who seriously want to win and be a part of this team.

It's not fair and it's not right what Wallace is doing.

kinda hard to catch balls when your double teamed all the recievers you mentioned are above 6'3"except wayne and larry fitz had only 1 catch for 11 yrds yesterday so i guess he's lazy too? and that is the difference so know what your talking about before you say he's not trying he did make a mistake carrying the ball like a loaf of bread.

I agree in a sense. He didn't quit on the team. The Ravens made sure he wasn't a factor, just like we did with Torrey Smith. He was doubled on almost every play (which Collinsworth pointed out). As usual he's being overly criticized. He deserves some criticism after last night, but not the lynching he's getting. Calling him a cancer and all that is absolutely absurd but it's clear that his head wasn't in the game last night. The fumble and lack of effort on that pass are worthy of criticism without question, but let's not act like he's the reason we lost. Hell, if it wasn't for him completely owning the DB on the first play, we may not have ever scored a TD in that game. That's 40-something free yards. Again, his performance is worth some criticism, but with the line pass protecting horribly, Byron being hurt (and just absolutely horrid), he honestly doesn't deserve the all the hate he's getting right now.

This.

Oh, the Ravens made him a non-factor?

No.

The Ravens didn't make him not go after that ball that was bounced in front of him. That was all Wallace.
Yes the Ravens stripped him for the fumble but it was Wallace's job to secure the ball. Especially against the Ravens who constantly go after the ball.

There was no sense of urgency in Wallace's play the entire evening. And the Ravens had nothing to do with that.

Sorry..........Wallace is responsible for his own actions. We need to stop trying to make others responsible for the actions (or the lack there of) of Wallace.

I have a 3.4 GPA so only if I was clever huh ... But this is a Steelers Website none of this actually matters

Your the biggest joke on the Site and everybody knows it ...

putting effort in... he's going to get a big contract after this year no matter what (as long as he produces and makes it out injury free, which he is doing...now if he gets hurt is he going to get a big contract? probably not)... his stats are just fine ... his stats are better/ on par than/with your precious AB

and Adrian Peterson fumbled the most in like his first 3 years ... he was the best running back in the league then, and he fixed that problem and is still the best running back in the league...

as far as Mike fumbles vs Fitz fumbles ... check out his other stats vs Fitz through the first 3.5 years of career , Mike Stats match up with Fitz through the first 3.5 years ... not saying Mike is as good as a reciever as Fitz but I mean production wise, he's up there numbers don't lie...

and as far as this 100 mil dollar contract ... I've yet to see any interview with him , where HE HIMSELF is actually saying that ... reports are blah blah blah ... his agent maybe trying to get one, but why not try?? ... No I would not pay him that much, I've stated many times I think he worth about 7mil a year type of contract ... but hey what the heck why not try to get the most you can??

what players interview have you seen where they stated their contract demands?

We have a number one wide receiver. His name is Antonio Brown. Far and away a better receiver than Wallace.

Wallace has great speed and OK hands. If I have one criticism of Haley this year, it's that he hasn't taken advantage of this mismatch. On the other hand, it looks like he's trying to turn Wallace into a complete receiver, and from what we've seen, that's just not him. Once his speed goes, this guy is toast.

With Brown, Sanders and Cotchery, not to mention Heath, it wouldn't be a big time need. Big time needs are safety and a defensive play maker. A mid-round pick for WR would be warranted though.

I guess I see more in Brown than you do. Like a guy who can go over the middle and get that big time reception. In Wallace, I see a guy who doesn't seem to want to be here and is lacking focus and concentration. I can find another Wallace, but getting another Brown isn't nearly as easy. Antonio Brown is a receiver in a different class of Mike Wallace.

And big time need. Not even close. But the Steelers have been good at getting WR value in the mid-rounds, so I'm confident that they will again. Upper rounds, we need defense, defense and defense. Defensive playmaker is the #1 need on this team; that's a big time need. OLB and Safety are big time needs.

Wallace, at this point, is offering us nothing. He plays without any kind of passion. He makes NO attempt to adjust to the ball on deep routes, he don't catch the football. He is not getting open a lot, and he generally seems like he don't like being out there. Its starting to get a little ugly if you ask me. This is a guy who believes he is one of the best WRs in the league, yet right now he plays with less intensity than Limas Sweed, and he catches around the same amount of balls too.

Hopefully all the Wallace lovers around here can finally start seeing the light with this guy. He's been completely outplayed by Hayden, Flowers, and even the Ravens defense kept him in check. If you're going to call yourself elite then you better start winning those battles.

Don't gimme this underthrown ball crap either; all he has is his go route and the occasional slant pattern. You're down to your 3rd string QB, you can't just take off and expect the ball to be there like Ben does it. You have to be smart enough to realize that you may have to come back and help out; perhaps go up for a jump ball now and then?!

Don't just stand there, look at the sideline and put your hands up like you're not to blame.

I'm so over the self absorbed body language he gives off every week when he doesn't get 10 catches per game. Get overself, STFU and just play like everybody else.

Look at it this way, with every week of subpar play, his value goes down. I haven't given up on him at all, but it seems he doesn't do a good job adjusting to the ball in the air if it is off target. Like he doesn't know how to come back to the ball or something. I still think he is an awesome talent, but as I said prior to him reporting this year, if he goes somewhere else next year and that team's QB is not elite, he will be an average receiver at best.

He just doesn't seem hungry to me lately. IMO, he puts the ball on the ground too easily and doesn't go after the ball hard enough if it is not thrown right at him. These are coachable / correctable issues.

That said, I still want him on the team next year.
