    We can use Rainey to take the top of the defense?........Yea since Chris Rainey has proven so much at the NFL level?.....lol I like the Rainey pick but man lets watch statements like this until Rainey actually takes an NFL snap.....

    wallace is the best WR on the team, and wallace does have more yards than a lot of great receivers did their first 3 years, its not easy to contribute as a WR early on let alone become a #1....the best is yet to come with wallace, its laughable you dont see that just because of a POTENTIAL holdout

    He has no choice but to sign or return. One way or another he owes the Steelers a year and maybe two if they franchise him.

    The F.O. Has him played like a cheap banjo and his only recourse is to sign or retire.

    I say he signs the tender (worth approximately 2.7 million) and the Steelers tag him the following year (worth approximately 9 million) and he averages about 5.85 million for the next 2 seasons. Game, set, match, F.O.

    That gives both sides enough time to work on a long term agreement ala Lamaar Woodley.

    Say away Mike. You can make the front office do what you want. You show 'em. Just stay away.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Thats the EXACT reason why IMO he hasnt signed! Look around the league: $5.85 mil/year is $1 mil less than Stevie Johnson money with ZERO job security. In comparison Vincent Jackson signed this season for 5 years $55 mil. In Jacksons BEST three seasons he totalled ~3300 yards 25 TDs - Wallaces FIRST 3 years totalled 3200 yards 24 tds! He deserves V-Jac money! He deserves more. If the Steelers arent willing to atleast give him $10-11 mil/year, then I cant blame the guy for holding out! I'd hate to see it happen, i dont think it will happen!

    I dont care as long as he makes it to the start of camp and they dont break the bank where we cant fit AB in next year. E. Sanders might be the guy left out in the long run but Id rather have Wallace than Sanders.

    We all know we have the offensive potential to be very, very explosive. I just hope we can get all the pieces into place at the start of camp so were all on the same page from the get go. It will take time for us to jell as a unit... with everyone in place hopefully the learning curve is sooner rather than later...

    He'll sign at some point when he realizes he can't bully them into more money than they are comfortable giving him.

    Thats about the worst idea I've heard all offseason!!! I have a hard time understanding why people are so upset with Wallace. If we're talking hold out come late August then by all means, take your shots! But its a lil early and hes too god to write him off when he hasn't done anything wrong!
