When the Steelers came out for the game, I saw Sweed in uniform, and couldn't believe it. The only pass I saw Ben throw to him looked like a pretty poor one.
It's true, but it's also true that Wallace is making those catches. Don't know what Sweed's future holds, but after his rookie contract it's probably not in Pittsburgh.
I'm still not ready to count him out, but then again I'm still holding out hope that Willie Reid will pan out for us.
Yeah, one of many reasons Wallace is impressing is that even when he has to make some big adjustments, he seems to do it pretty easily: going to the ground on low throws, e.g.
I mean, check out our receiving stats to date:
Holmes: 36-590 (16.4), 1 TD
Ward: 49-464 (13.2), 4 TD
Wallace: 25-437 (17.5), 3 TD
Miller: 43-371 (8.6), 4TD
That's a nice group right there. Wallace is creeping up on what I though his end of year totals might be.
He also has 4 runs for 43 yards, which is almost exactly half of Mewelde Moore's rushing total so far. Of course, I think we under-use Moore, but that's another story.
