It is pretty clear Mike Wallace has taken over the #1 receiver spot for Hines Ward in Pittsburgh, but regardless of what you think about Ward personally, he is a money player.
A lot of people wondered out loud why when the Steelers needed a 4th down conversion to keep their hope of being Super Bowl champions alive that pass went to Wallace instead of Ward.
Here is what Ward had to say:
“I’m thinking deja vu, here we go again,” said Ward, who caught seven passes for 78 yards and one touchdown in the game. “Two minutes, let’s go down there. I really felt like I was in a zone, that anything that came my way it was going to get caught no matter what. I didn’t get an opportunity. I would like to have gotten opportunities [on the final series] but it didn’t happen.”
