Just Wallace + Hartline is just not going to cut it.
1) Grab Wallace (and/or Jennings)
2) Grab Finley or Jared Cook
3) Draft Patterson in the 1st
4) Draft the best WR available in the 2nd or 3rd.
5) Draft O-line and CB's with the other picks (2 - 4) (depending on Long walking or cutting Incgnito)
So we end up with Wallace, Patterson, Rogers/Bailey/Austin/Swope, Hartline (or not), Matthews, Bess, Binns....at WR.
...and Cook, Clay, Egnew at TE.
We basically need a whole new WR core. Let's stop playing around folks...we were 27th in scoring offense!
Look at Wallace beast on an end-around at 3:30.. stoked ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSOlJCoZmTI
At the end of the day I'm happy with any of the 3 WRs. All 3 are #1 talents in my opinion.
Some may argue that Wallace isn't, due to his production this last season but like I said in a post on another thread - The Steelers have been on a steady decline since the end of the 2011 regular season when they lost 3-4 and then put up the snoozer in Denver that I don't even want to think about. And 2012 was even worse with all of the injuries they suffered, they looked like **** to say the least...
They are old and injured at most positions and that affects the WRs. It's not fair to give Wallace a total pass but it needs to be taken into account. He's a #1 WR and not as one dimensional as some people here think. I've watched loads of highlight videos and he runs more than 2-3 routes like some here claim he does...
Fin fan till' the coffin slams!
Pass on both. Otherwise it will be severely overpaying for over-valued players. It'll just keep us down the path of mediocrity.
Just say no to the path of mediocrity!
As I have said, I would have no problem with any of the big three (Even though I hear Bowe may never get to taste FA), but again, IMO the best scenario is to bring in Jennings, draft 2 receiver in the 1st 5 picks to slowly learn from Jennings, and try to sign Hartline to a sensible contract. Miami needs smart reliable receivers, not receivers that are explosive but not as reliable.
Gase was asked by one executive if he knew his personal record against Dan Quinn, the Seattle defensive coordinator who became the head coach in Atlanta. "It's 0-2," Gase responded, "and I'm going to tell you something right now: He's never going to f---ing beat me again."
Could all this mike Wallace talk be a smoke screen?
