Don’t get me wrong, Cleveland’s passing on Wallace to select two other WR’s was not nearly as bad as when they selected Kellen Winslow II in The 2004 N.F.L. Draft over future Hall of Famer and Ohio native Ben Roethlisberger.
The worst part for Cleveland regarding their passing over of Wallace is that their colossal mistake not only harmed them, but helped their biggest rivals in the process. In 5 career games against the Browns Wallace has put up 14 catches for 313 yards and 2 TD’s and earned his first Pro Bowl berth in 2011. Robiskie is in Jacksonville and Massaquoi is still in Cleveland trying to get his career kick started.
Every Sunday when I turn on my t.v. to watch the Steelers and I see #17 streaking down the field on a 9 route, I just sit back and thank my lucky stars that he is wearing the black and gold instead of the brown and orange. I’m sure many of you Cleveland fans wish it was the other way around.
