Just wanted to check the temp in the room on Mike Wallace.
Me personally... I don't see him as overpaid or a bust. I see him as a guy who is being vastly underutilized. When we signed him we knew what we were getting. A burner with so-so hands. But we signed him anyway. We said we are gonna turn this guy into a number 1 wr. We have done nothing to accomplish this goal. I look around the league and I see a bunch of teams who have a #1 WR. A guy who everybody who has ever seen a football game knows they are gonna throw the ball to. And yet someow that guy still gets 8 or so catches for X amount of yards. I look at our team... all I hear are excuses. "He was double teamed" "It wasn't the right coverage" BLAH BLAH BLAH...
Do you think it's a surprise when Calvin Johnson is in double coverage, Or AJ Green and so on and on. Every other respectable passing team finds a way to get the ball to their playmakers. Instead we call 50 plays to Rishard mathews. Where is the motion? Where is the attempt to create a mismatch. The use of a bunch set. Mike Wallace is a good player. Ryan Tannehill is a good QB. This offense lacks diversity and creativity. It plays not to lose. Good teams play to win. Increased risk but increased reward.
Fire Ireland, Fire Sherman, force Phibin to call the plays. If next year there is no improvement fire Philbin and start all over. I'll be here
