Does Mike Wallace sound like he might be back with the Steelers next season? Or that he wants to be?
Wallace has looked more like his deep-threat self late in the season, catching 12 passes for 220 yards and two touchdowns. That’s an average of 18.3 yards per catch, which is more in line with his career average than the 13.1-yard average he has for the 2012 season. Included in those 12 catches are receptions for 40 and 60 yards.
Wallace is tied for the team with lead with eight touchdown catches, but he also knows he failed to make several big catches in games that could have made a difference in some of their close losses.
He said he and the other receivers, Antonio brown and Emmanuel Sanders, want to work on that for next season. This is what he said.
“We missed some plays we usually make. When other things are not going well, we have to be the ones to step up and make plays. I don’t think we did that consistently enough this year. We just got to get better.
“I think we’re going to be a lot better next year, as a crew and individually. I know me, personally, I’m going straight to work and give it my hardest grind and just try to get back and focus on the things that you weren’t able to accomplish. Plays that we made, we expect to make those. So we just got to go back and look at the ones we didn’t make.”
