Mike Wallace 2012 Full Season Part 1 and 2

We have looked at Brian Hartline’s and Greg Jennings’s 2012 Season thus far, our attention now shifts to Mike Wallace’s 2012 season.

Part 1

Part 2

Mike Wallace had a challenging year. Wallace lost his quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for part of the season, and he also had to deal with a newoffensivescheme by new OC Todd Haley. Roethlisberger’s backup Byron Leftwich also got injured which led to the uninspiring display of quarterbacking skills by perennial clip-board holder Charlie Batch, it was dreadful to watch.

Beyond that, new OC Todd Haley’s offensive style was a far cry from Pittsburgh’s aggressive vertical style passing attack of recent years. Haley has developed a reputation for a heavy run emphasis supplemented by high percentage short yardage throws. This change in philosophy took away from two of Pittsburgh’s main strengths; Roethlisberger’s ability to buy time by extending his pocket and Mike Wallace’s ability to stretch the field vertically.

The down season for Wallace was not a major disaster (Free Agents 2012 Stats here), however, it could not have come at a more inopportune time for Wallace being that hewasinhiscontractyear. The respect that DBs gave Wallace was evident; from the cushion he received pre-snap, to the everpresentsafety help overthetop. Wallace had many spectacular plays in 2012, but also had a couple issues with his hands that worried me a bit, dropping passes before initial contact and allowing the ball to get into his body on occasion. Yet he remains a threat to score on every play and must be accounted for at all times.Join us on our message board and share your thoughts!! Get started here!
