Wallace can be replaced also, but it would be hard. Speed guys can be replaced but not as easy as some think. Look at Heyward Bey coming out of college. Speed guy who never panned out.

    Also, Lewis will not be a ton of money as people think we cant sign both. Its not like we are going to be paying Lewis, Revis type money.
    First, who are you to decide my opinion is a joke? You may not agree with it, but its not a joke. Lewis has excelled under Lake's coaching and there is no reason to think he wont continue to get better. But, as I have said before, we are at the cap with 35 guys under contract. Wallace makes this offense better, but so would a stud FS, or Revis type CB or 4 Pro Bowl WR's. The problem is we have this thing called a cap. So, does Wallace make this team better, yes, is he worth 8 percent of the total cap, no. He doesnt make the team that much better. So as the Steelers figure out who is coming back, Mendenhall, McClendon, Lewis, Mundy, Allen, Sanders, Foote, Foster, Legs, and Dwyer. Then we have guys who are free agents at the end of next season we have to consider, Cotchery, Hood, and others. It may mean we can only sign one guy, maybe even have to franchise him. For me, I think Lewis will give us more bang for our buck.

    Trying to a make playoff run lets see who steps up before we start jumping off and on wagons, lewis first year and wallace somewhat struggling it seems but I think hes learning an offense that doesn't consists of him blowing the top of the coverage 50% i f the time

    Lewis has really opened my eyes. I didn't think he was ready. But he's shown me that he's ready to more then hold his own.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Im sorry but it was laughable in my opinion. Lewis has only started 9 games for the Steelers his whole career. Let the season finish out, and go from there. Like I stated earlier. He will be a cheap contract. Only Miller has more Td's than Wallace. 5 td's from a receiver is pretty damn good so far. If you combine Johnson/Brown/Pope/Sanders/Mendenhall reception td's, they only combine to Wallace's 5. Wallace puts points on the board, period. Also, noone knows if Wallace will accept a contract from the Steelers if it doesnt meet his demands. He is in a very good offense, a team who makes the playoffs almost every year. We will see what happens but lets see what happens with Lewis from now till the end of the season.

    Blah
    That was still a riduculous call on him. The NFL is getting to the point where you're not even allowed to cover the receivers.

    If the steelers had to choose, it's possible Lewis is the better option from a CAP perspective.....Theirs Nobody in this forum that wouldnt love a Revis for Wallace straight up trade....meaning Corners have much more value. Not to say Lewis will ever be a top 5 Corner, but he could be a Decent #1 corner, I like what i'm seeing and letting him go would be a mistake as Ike is on the bad side of 30 and we have nobody else and we dont know how to get one

    Thats what I dont understand why some people are already coming to the conclusion to Wallace and Lewis. Wallace has 3 1/2 seasons of work proven that he is a threat compared to Lewis's 9 total starts. Is Lewis playing well right now? Hell yes, but lets him get some more starts in first to see who would be the smarter signing for long term.

    Nobody should be ready to crown Lewis is the greatest things since sliced bread by any stretch but you have to admit he's stepped up his game so far this year. He's batting down passes, playing solid coverage over all and seems to have a nose for the ball. He's young and still has room to grow but I love his potential. He'll cost more than a typical 1st round tender in 2013 but he's worth the money at this point.
