Are you talking to Rocco or me? Rocco is attacking Colon, but I get "jammed up" when people attack Ike Taylor.

I write what I see. I see a penalty-taking, momentum-killing, block-whiffing anchor. Seriously, he has 8 of the team's 30 offensive holding calls. No one else has more than 3 holding calls and Colon's missed 2 games. Heath has 3 holding calls and Stevenson Sylvester has 3 on special teams. The rest of the line is either blocking without holding or not getting caught.

http://www.nflpenalties.com/team/pittsb ... ?year=2012

Read whatever you want. I really don't care. Just ignore the fact that the line seems to mysteriously get better every time he's out and you'll be fine.

and I suggest you see what you're predisposed to see. Anyway, I don't know how you square the line gets better when he's out with the line's improvement this year.


You're right, my mind is inventing the team-leading 11 penalties, or that the team's rushing numbers are the worst they've been since the last time Colon played regularly. The line has been better at pass protection this year because they're getting better play out of their tackles. This has allowed Miller to be used as a receiver more than in the past.

Mike Wallace is apparently... bored

http://triblive.com/sports/steelers/3090560-85/wallace-yards-ball#ixzz2EO091Glt

He says he "loses focus" because he doesn't get enough targets...

“When I don’t get the ball for a certain amount of time, I lose focus sometimes,” he said. “It hurts me when it’s time for me to make a play.”


This has to be a joke right? I mean, really? Worried about your numbers?

“We spread the ball around more than we did in the past,” said Wallace, who missed all of training camp because of a contract dispute. “So it’s not one or two people with yards. Nobody’s numbers just jump out.

“If there’s been a play that I haven’t made this year, it’s been in the second or third quarter when I haven’t been getting too many passes ... and I’m losing focus. I get a little frustrated, and that’s the main thing.”


Writing his own ticket out of town, unless someone looks at him mean before he gets on the plane, then he'll just curl up in the fetal position.

I stole this from someone else:

Mike Wallace has 52 rec, 93 targets, in 12 games (according to ESPN.com)

extrapolating his 2012 #s and comparing to his 2011 numbers:

2012 - 16 games, 69 rec, 124 targets
2011 - 16 games, 72 rec, 113 targets

So he is less productive because he isn't being thrown to enough, yet he is averaging MORE targets this year... Well Mike, you gutless puke, have fun being a Raider.

He won't be a Raider next year...he'll go to a contender...hopefully in the NFC. I've been utterly disappointed with his play and attitude on and off the field this year, but I really don't want to deal with him as a Patriot, Bronco, or even Colt.

His speed can change the game, but Haley's offense isn't designed to take full advantage of what he can do...or rather what he wants to do. Wallace wants to run by guys and have the ball land in his hand 5 yards past the defender so that he walks into the endzone. He has no interest in quick posts, slants, and crossings that, IMO, can be even more effective (or at least efficient) ways to use his speed against a defense. Clear the LBs with Heath, or catch them in a blitz, and Wallace catching a 10 yard cross turns into a huge play...I think I've seen that somewhere before...

He is, right or wrong, frustrated. He feels as if he's being slighted...in a contract year no less...and his words reflect that frustration. Frustration can be a great motivational tool, but he's showing himself to be a total 'me first' guy that isn't willing to admit that he's been part of cause of his own frustration. If he doesn't realize that he's playing with a top 5 QB in an offense designed around Ben's strengths (not his) by now, he never will.

It'll be very interesting to see how the team reacts to these quotes.

I will continue to say I told everyone so since everyone made fun of me when I scoffed at Mike Wallace's importance in a Todd Haley offense.

well, he would be very successful if he decided to be a man and look for the ball every once in a while. it's more about him being too cowardly to play the system rather than his skill set not being a good fit for the system

Wallace has been a non-factor with BRoeth out. His numbers usually go down when BRoeth is out. News flash- he needs a QB playing that can get him the ball downfield.
