    I agree with you. I am very intrigued by Wallace and what his speed would add to our offense but I just have the feeling he wont even be brought in. I think they are locked in on Jennings and will do what ever they have to sign him.

    i also don't agree with any tannehill can't throw the ball deep stuff...that's not what i saw this year...mike wallace would do murder in pa would bang the opposition for chunk yardage on comebacks and deep outs and catch quick slants screens and posts with more big play ability than anyone we have on the roster...

    design ways to get wallace clean releases off the los either by motion or by stacking the wrs etc and he'll do murder...and when teams do try to press him he's so quick and explosive they usually go to press bail and he gets into his route and off the los efficiently...
    100 percent true.

    Thanks, hooshoops.

    GREAT post -- and what Wallace brings to the table is rare for a team. RARE. And RT's throws that are incompletions for scrubs like Hartline, Bess and Co. would be TDs and long gainers w. Wallace.

    Ah setting yourself up to be angry at jeff if we pay wallace, and if we don't pay wallace. Very Mando-like.

    While everyone is screaming for Wallace, nobody is mentioning that the Steeelers offense was almost as pitiful as ours.

    If Wallace opens it up so much why did the Steelers only score 21 points per game the last 2 years.

    There offense isn't much better than ours and Wallace is supposedly their big play threat.

    They score 3 points more per game then us but have the best defense in the league.

    The fact that their defense allowed 47 less first downs than us would probably end up amounting to 3 offensive points per game easily.

    I'm just not convinced that getting Wallace is going to make this dramatic change. Just look at Pittsburgh's offense.

    Well the Steelers lost two starting offensive lineman and Big Ben missed some games and when he did play he was not 100%.

    Do you think the Bears thought that since Miami's offense sucked that they should not sign Brandon Marshall?

    We could sign Jennings Wallace Bowe Bush Hartline Keller and Cook all for the league minimum wage this summer and some people would still attack Ireland.

    Good excuse for 2012, but the Steelers offense sucked the year before also.

    And the Marshall signing didn't really improve their offense, you are proving my point.

    Cutler had a bad year and was injured after a concussion. And it doesn't help that the Bears had one of the worst Offensive Coordinators in the nfl with Mike Tice. And the fact that the Bears had the worst Oline in the nfl and most injury plagued Oline in the nfl doesn't really help the Bears any.

    And I don't think you can say Marshall didn't improve the Bears offense since he did demand double teams constantly, the Bears just didn't have anybody else to throw to, Knox was out for the season, Hester sucks, and Jeffery was inconsistent and injured throughout the year. Their next best receiver was Forte who was also injured for a good part of the year.
