I think Wallace is a better route runner than he gets credit for. Not great, but better than some say.Nah don't agree. He's stiff as a board and rounds off his routes. He gets very little separation on the shorter routes because he telegraphs them. Same thing when he catches the ball. He's very poor after the catch unless it involves running a straight line. His change of direction ability is very poor which makes me always shake my head when they use him on end arounds.
They will prepare for it as best they can, but until the Steelers make it a commonly used weapon and not an aberration, it is what it is.
HIRE BRUCE ARIANS!!!!!Nah, Andrew Luck attemtpted just 94 passes over 20 yards for the season, or 5.5 per game (including playoffs). Not all that impressive when it comes to talking about stretching a defense with your deep threat. KC can keep him and his predictability.

I read somewhere he led the league in passes downfield.He also led the league in int's.
Andrew ended up 26th in the league with a passer rating of 75.6% 627 attempts which is double what RG was asked to do.Can't deny first statement, and whole heartedly agree with second.
I'm glad Arians is out of Indy, he was going to throw this kids arm out way before his time.
If $10 million a year isn't good enough for Wallace then let him go. If it came down to Wallace at $10 million a year or Brown at $8,I've said this several times and apparently no one finds it credible but the Steelers don't release information on contract negotiations. Someone loosely reported the Steelers offered Wallace $10M per and ever since it's been treated as gospel. I don't believe it and Peter King reported they offered him the A. Brown contract and he turned it down.
I've said this several times and apparently no one finds it credible but the Steelers don't release information on contract negotiations.Nah, I believe it also. I can't remember the Steelers, or any team for that matter, actually coming out and announcing the full details of any deal. Most contracts are incentive laiden, and rely heavily on bonus cash coming for performance incentives, as you stated.
There was a lot of talk that Wallace wants Larry Fitz money. He never came out and said that. I do believe he wants top 5 WR money though. Gregg Jennings, Dwayne Bowe, and Wes Welker will all be getting new contracts this year. I think Wallace will wait to see what those guys get and want the same if not more.If Mike Wallace would have reported to camp on time, and performed to the money he wanted in 2012, I believe he would have forced the Steelers hand and made it really tough to justify not keeping him in the city. Unfortunately for MW, he held out and his performance was sub-par, thus sealing his fate. e'll get paid and my guess by one of the following teams:
Wallace didn't do himself any favors this last season. Honestly I wouldn't want to see the Steelers pay him more than 5 million per season. He lacked concentration and quit on routes many times last season.
