    And this stuff of, " We don't even know what Wallace asked for" is also hog wash. The 49ers talked to his agent. And his agent was asking for the moon (Fitzgerald money). So stop trying to make excuses for Wallace. Wallace is responsible for what his agent does. That's why he's his agent!!!

    Again, there is a way of going about getting your money and Wallace has not exercised the proper course in getting his money. And Steeler management isn't fazed a bit. There is a reason they took another WR in the draft weather you want to except it or not. Finding WR;s right now for this organization is not a hard thing to do. Obviously they know how to develop them.

    I don't think management is really pissed off with Wallace as of yet. But if he tries to do anything other then sign that tender in the next couple of weeks, he will see the fangs of the front office come out. And he doesn't want to see that. Ask Santonio Holmes.
    Proof of the 49ers talking to Wallace's agent please?........Its all hear say..........Ok so what the Steelers drafted Tony Clemons in the 7th rounder and that really doesn't have anything to do with Mike Wallace....If the Steelers were so concerned about replacing Wallace then I think they would have spent a draft sooner on a WR........Again I like Clemons but the guy has to make the team first.......Fred Gibson was a former 4th round pick and flopped so the Steelers don't hit on all their WR picks......

    ok...lol but that did make me laugh.........Point is we really don't know what Wallace and his demands are unless one of us on this site has access to the contract talks going on between Wallace and the Steelers......

    I'm going to assume that you somehow managed to block out the memories of this forum when Ben was accused of rape.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    No, while some crazy talk went around (I was a part of some of it) atleast it had SOME merit. People talk about Wallace like he got a DUI, while beating his girlfriend after leaving a chick in a night club bathroom... Smoking a joint!!!

    It's all good.

    It's hearsay for you because it deflates your argument. We have the rights to Wallace so the 49ers had no reason to lie. Second, the Steelers front office is supremely confident in their player assessment. Just because a guy comes in the 7th round doesn't mean that they don't think he has the talent to make the team. If that were the case, then most of our WR's wouldn't have made this team because they are not 1st round picks.

    We can all name dozens of late round picks that haven't made it. But very few teams can name late round WR picks that have made it as much as the Steelers.

    Wallace is not worth 12 mil. He is not Larry Fitzgerald. He is not even in Fitzgerald zip code! He is worth 5-7 mil and I'm sure he'll get that. I just hope he's happy with whatever the management deems fair. Or there will be a new chapter added to this saga. And it's a chapter that Wallace won't win.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.
