    Time to Examine Wallace

    Mike Wallace in many eyes had his worst game of the season last night with one huge drop and another that would have been a great catch but it hit his hands nevertheless. In his last 8 games, he has only 1 100+ receiving game and at times completely disappears from the game.

    What Gives?
    It's clear that defenses are now putting a safety over the top trying to limit Wallace's ability to go deep. As is typical, Arians has been unable to adjust on the fly. After halftime, Ben was able to get him on a couple of routes.

    Last night, KC also put safety Jon McGraw on Heath Miller and he did an excellent job limiting Heath to one catch. So where is the adjustment? If you essentially have two guys on Wallace and a safety on Miller then common sense tells you Brown and Sanders have to be open right? Brown and Sanders were targeted a total of 10 times combined last night while Wallace was targeted 6 times. AB had a nice game as did Hines who had 4 catches, but somewhere adjustments just aren't being made.

    Perhaps Wallace is getting caught up in the hype surrounding his big start to the season, who knows? Bottom line is that they need to get him the ball more or at least take more advantage of two guys covering him.

    Wallace was catching early everything for a while, I think he`ll be fine. But Antonio Brown may be No. 1

    I think his press clippings are stuck to his facemask. He will be fine, he is just pressing for that big play that he hasn't gotten in a while.

    Steelers did a horrible job of softening up the D for him. The corner was playing 10 yards back, so we should have thrown some quick passes to him to bring that corner up so we could exploit him for a deep pass later in the game.

    Instead we used old slow Hines Ward to do this early on! I want Hines t get 1000 but late in games when we have the win locked up, not until then

    Another thing is that he VERY rarely gets single coverage no more, and Wallace is not the type of player who'll go up against Double Coverage and come down with the ball, Megatron style. It does give all the other WRs so much more room to roam in though.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!
