Well, he's got a point. We have a franchise QB. But the front office hasn't given him a competent running game, or a for real # 1 Wide Receiver. If they are not going to surround a franchise QB in his prime, then what's the use?
Colbert is as imaginative as a rock. K-Train, Coldrolled, myself and a lot of the Steeler nation knew how much the Vikings and Dolphins want Mike Wallace. Why not franchise him and force one of them to give up a 2nd round pick for him? This front office and Rooney live in the stone ages when it comes to football maneuverings and strategy. It's a crying shame.
The Steeler way...is the only way.
They don't have the cap room to franchise him
However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!
Now, i will say i dont belive Miami has the offense or the talent for Wallace to succeed/surpass the numbers he put up here in Pittsburgh. Tannehill IS NOT Roethlisberger and they dont hve any WR's to take advantage of the double teams Wallace is gonna draw. My opinion is based PURELY on the contract he's about to sign!
Not to mention Davone Bess working the slot. He's a good slot who will be able to take advantage of the coverage Waalace warrants.
Brian Hartline is a servicable WR and i think HIS numbers may go up. But, the Dolphins were towards the bottom of the league in Passing and in the bottom half of the league in rushing. Those rushing stats were WITH Reggie bush having a pretty productive year and he's on his way out in MIA. Miller and Thomas combined didnt match the stats of Bush. As for the passing game: I dont think Wallace will be enough for them to even crack the top half of the league. Hartline wont draw coverage away from Wallace. He just int an IMPACT type player. he had 70 recs last year and 1 td. He may have 100 catches and 3-5 tds with teams constantly doubling Wallace and we all know what happens then!
