You need top tier talent to run elite offenses in the NFL.
    This is complete bs. I find it amusing that you would start at thread like this and take someones sensible opinion and claim it to be "silly." Please name one...just one high priced free agent Reciever that Mike Sherman or Pholnin brought in during their time in Green Bay. You can't name one because they didn't bring in anyone high priced, they developed their talent just like they developed their offensive game plan.
    Jets suck, Bills suck, Patriots suck.

    Let me ask you a question ..... Mike Wallace feels he deserves Top WR money (think Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson contracts). You actually in your right might believe we would offer that to him? Really?
    I never said you started those threads. You misunderstood.

    It's a discussion. Bowe will clearly be the smaller priced player, as he seems to really want to come home. Wallace appears to have true elite ability. It's a discussion board.

    You're misunderstanding. They certainly "developed" their own talent, but they also give large contracts to players who are worthy. Jennings gets paid $8 million a year. Shouldn't they have just let him walk if it's so simple to develop true #1 WRs?

    Did they sign someone to a huge "free agency" contract? No, no they didn't. But is there really a true difference between a free agency contract and a re-signing that is of equal dollar amount? You need talent. Tell me, who on our roster seems to scream talent and top flight capability? I know, I know, we all love Gates (we being Madden players) but there's very little ability flashed.

    I completely agree that we have to see what is on our roster, but a very real possibility is that Miami goes after one of these two. They made a contract offer to Vincent Jackson. That alone kinda destroys your theory.

    Crazy likes saying whatever comes to mind and ignoring pertinent information. He's in good company.

    Bowe fits the West Coast prototype more, but seems like more of a headcase of the kind Philbin seems to disdain. Wallace is less of a fit, but seems like his head on at least relatively straight; he just wants to get paid in a manner that's difficult to achieve in Pittsburgh.

    Does anyone have the drop stats on Wallace? Bowe is one of the more notorious pass droppers in the NFL, but I don't know where Wallace stands.

    Anyway, if Gates can fulfill his potential, then Wallace becomes less necessary (though it never hurts to have multiple touchdown makers). But if it doesn't look like Gates is going to "get it," then a guy like Wallace is to me personally more valuable.

    My guess, though, is that Philbin would prefer a Dwayne Bowe, or at least someone of the Bowe prototype.

    I think it is really too early to say. If our D plays great and our one glaring hole is WR i could see us going after a Wallace AND using a higher pick. Who knows. Why would wallace not fit the west coast? From what ive seen hes a fine routr runner..and he eats cushion like nobody else. He opens up everything for everyone else...hes great at the 9 route..but lets not act like thats all he can do.

    mike wallace is what miami envisioned clyde gates being when they drafted him...i'm not sure i see miami spending the money on either guy to be honest but if i had to pick one that i think they would be willing to give a 5 year $45 mil or so deal to it's bowe...if mike wallace is looking for $60 mil he can pound sand...

    while we're at it i hear another vertical deep threat stephen hill is tearing it up with the jets so far...making plays even on darrelle revis...gulp

    as others said mike wallace eats up db cushions like there's no tomorrow he can run deep outs and comebacks til the cows come home cause dbs are DEATHLY afraid of his vertical speed and acceleration...
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    If D.Bowe has a big year this year, I think the Cheifs will resign him.

    I don't buy that statement at all, not one bit. CJJR has trouble with Revis, so does Andre and Larry. So for a rook to come in who isn't anywhere near those guys, beat up on Revis sounds like a crock of bs to me.
