    Simple question. Jennings or Wallace? Assume they demand the same contract value.

    Gimme Jennings, I want our WR Corp to get some Veteran Leadership. I just dont see Wallace having that impact. Plus having Jennings to help our our WRs since he already knows the system. Wallace is also only a downfield guy.

    Edited: 1/7/2013 - Im surpirsed that Jennings won this poll. I was sure Wallace would have more votes.

    Both demand the same?

    Wallace.

    But that's not gonna happen, Wallace will want more than he is worth and he'll go to a team and be a bust FA signing while Jennings will come here for his worth and be a 1000 yard WR for our offense.

    Wasn't this a poll a few weeks back?

    Same value it's a no brainer .... Wallace. Wallace will be more expensive though.

    I love both players, but I'd much rather invest in Mike Wallace. The reasons being that A.) he's younger. B.) He doesnt get injured as often. And C.) His production wasn't as great in Pittsburgh because he wasnt targeted as much, in Miami he'd be our #1 go-to receiver and he'd perform a lot better.

    He kinda was but not really, because the thing about the Steelers and Ben is they spread the ball around to different receivers such as Emannuel Sanders, Antonio Brown, and Heath Miller. Over here he is by far our go-to receiver so he'd get more targets.

    You could also say the same thing for Jennings amiright?

    GB has Nelson, Cobb, Finley, Driver, Jones. Wayy better weapons than Pitts IMO.

    If everything is even, I like Wallace just because of his age. However, I like Jennings too because he is "Joe Guy". Philbin needs more of his guys in the locker room.

    I would like to see the FA signings be guys in their mid twenties. However, I can live with an exception.

    You could that's why his production has gone down, but I never said Wallace would be better than Jennings. But I do think Wallace will be good for a longer time than Jennings, because of age and Mike doesnt get injured as much. Either way I'd be happy with either player, but Wallace warrants a big contract more than Jennings does.

    Well if we go by TDs last year he only played 13 games but still had more TDs than wallace despite all that talent around him.

    What will the reaction be if the answer is neither? LOL.

    By the way, if they signed a Jared Cook or if Jermichael Finley was cut and he was picked up along with Hartline being re-signed, I could live with that until draft day. On draft day, I would look for a burner in the 2 to 3rd round. I still think that would be a much improved passing game.

    To be fair, both teams have a lot of talent on the team.

    We have the money and Ireland could do it if he really wanted to. But previous actions suggest he'd never spend that much money at a skill position. I'm all for being frugal, but it's rare to have this much money to spend, and this would ensure we'd have one of the best WR corps for a number of years. Could you imagine this finally being a non-issue? I'm fine with the 'sign one or the other and draft another' approach, but let me dream dammit.

    Why isn't anyone talking about Dwayne Bowe? He's a free agent too.

    Get rid of Brian and Davone. Both are mediocre. Jennings and Wallace together would be amazing.

    How much would we have to pay if we cut Bess? Imagine dropping Hartline and Bess, and replacing them with Mike Wallace and Greg Jennings.
    Then we could pick up Swope in the 3rd-4th round to fill the slot.

    I'm worried that they won't both be on the market, if one of them gets resigned, the others price will go way up.

    I would much rather take a guy who may be older but runs excellent routes and is a fit for this offense.

    Amazingly poor idea.

    You FIND the talent, you COACH the talent, you KEEP the talent and then you ADD to the talent!

    I'd like to have a 12 inch **** but I'm stuck with this 9 inch one.....

    (I still love your off season plan although you took off one cornerback)

    Jennings does it All. I would take him. Wallace is not as consistent.

    Wallace is not a #1, we already have a #2 in Hartline and a slot in Bess

    Well first they would have to hit Free Agency, but if money weren't a factor, I'd want Wallace.

    That said, I think Jennings would be available for a bit less and would be nearly as effective as Wallace.

    Jennings... Doesn't seem like Wallace has the IT factor... Just seems like another fast guy.

    Jennings all day! He knows the offense and he has a great relationship with our coach. HELL, he was coached by our coach. Wallace is a great talent, just to many question marks. Jennings can walk in day one, and know all the lingo in the offensive play calls and might even help coach Tannehill in the process.

    Wallace has game breaking skill. Period. No one can cover him one on one downfield. Zero.

    Put Wallace in the line up and instantly the D must loosen somewhere else.

    Wallace. First.

    Jennings... er, ok. With the most accurate and highest rated QB throwing to him... he complains??? Get real. He's a good WR but he's not a one-man game-breaker. AND he can be covered one on one downfield -- at least much more easily than Wallace.

    Both. Although Wallace would help the offense more just by spreading things out a bit and making defenses respect the deep ball.
