    He is ridiculously fast and you cannot teach that, but teams started to gameplan against it and his production went down.
    And Brown's production went up.

    The notion that Brown is better than Wallace confuses me. Although he may someday prove to be better than Wallace, Brown's success can be directly correlated to other teams gameplanning against Wallace. You can gameplan around one but not two good receivers. If you take Wallace out of the equation, Brown's production will drop unless you replace Wallace with someone equally scary to opposing DCs. Sanders is not that guy yet although I can see him becoming him someday.

    its just taking what the defense gives you. Brown came up big for us but his success is a direct correlation to wallace being across from him, especially since brown is a horrid route runner. He legit makes a living off being welker-like in catching underneath passes and running very unusual routes to get open when a play breaks down. its going to be hard to evaluate him as an outside WR until he plays under haley...he could be a stud again but he could be out classed by sanders too who is a brilliant route runner.

    ive loved brown more than sanders since day one, but sanders could be poised for a breakout year and it wouldnt surprise me to see brown not match last years numbers

    I really don't care who is better or who I prefer.....I think we can agree that Wallace, Brown, Sanders gives the Steelers young talented WR's that offer different things ability wise.......All three should be kept together as long as possible......

    Agreed but is it realistic? Sanders and Brown become RFA's after this season (I believe). Wallace will be an UFA after this season if no long-term deal is agreed upon. That will be A LOT of money spent on the WR position, more than the Steelers traditionally spend. The team has some important decisions to make and I doubt that all three will be with us after this season, maybe next.
