    Mike Wallace's "knee" touchdown catch the best of his career?

    I know a lot of us get on Mike Wallace for not laying out for the ball, not being able to catch it in traffic, and what have you. I'm the first to admit I do it from time to time.

    That catch tonight though, while in good coverage, laying out catching it with one hand and trapping it between his knees while staying in bounds was a highlight for anyone to be proud of .

    Update: videos of catch in following posts.

    Might be the best catch we've ever seen him make?

    Nope. He's terrible. He's a one-trick pony that can only run go routes.

    Brilliant grab...

    A great EFFORT but the actual CATCH was pure luck. It is not like he was trying to catch it between his knees.

    Im a supporter of Wallace, Yes the td was nice. 14 yards receiving though. They need to get him more involved. Somehow, besides bubble screens and long shots.

    Luck? Huh? Maybe he catches that 1 time out of 10 but I think it was more skill than luck. Sure,there was a certain element of luck, but you can't do that with pure luck. I bet he did not say to himself "I am going to catch this ball between my legs this time." The throw developed the way it did and it looked to me as he reeled it in and begin to bobble the intentionally trapped it with his legs, rolled, and gained control while aware of the out of bounds line. That sir, is skill.

    It's definitely just a flat out sick catch. That being said, there had to be some luck involve on that one. He is still a good receiver, not a great one. I like AB more than Wallace.

    I thought his best one was the fingertip catch he made last year when it was like a 40 yard pass, if anyone remembers what one I'm talking about

    Don't take my word for it. :-)

    "I just tried to make a play on it," said Wallace. "I got lucky."

    I would add though, that it does take skill to put yourself in the position of being lucky.
