    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    The other day the percentage was in favor of Wallace by near 10%, seeing how it has drastically improved tells me people are finally coming to their senses...that quote from Wallace about having "big plans" for his free agency period has me thinking he will demand top tier money and that is out of the question...he is no where near an all purpose WR.

    +

    Actually the numbers for Wallace say different than your statement,"he is no where near an all purpose WR"

    Since Mike Wallace entered the NFL in 2009 more than 320 wide receivers have played in the league. Only nine of them have recorded more receiving yards than Wallace over that stretch

    Only two have scored more touchdowns, and only three have averaged more yards per catch.


    Only 20 wide receivers in NFL history have had more yards in the first four years of their career.

    He’s led the Steelers in touchdowns (or at least shared that lead) every year he’s been on the team, including this past season.

    Wallace has only missed 1 game in 4 years and is only 26 years old

    Reposted from the "Sports Science" thread:

    Both Wallace and Jennings are touchdown makers, just in different ways. Wallace destroys angles and makes huge plays, while Jennings with his elite quickness and route running is better in the red zone, imo. It just sort of depends on what you want and/or need. We have so many holes on the offense the smarter choice may be to go with Jennings and use the extra cash to try and get another guy who can score touchdowns (like Jermichael Finley, who after his down year is going to be relatively cheap, compared to his astronomical talent). When I look at this offense that's the glaring need right now. Guys who score. Bess doesn't do it, Hartline doesn't, Fasano is mediocre at it, Clay underachieves, Egnew is a mystery, Thomas doesn't. Miller is a poor man's Felix Jones (yes, a poor man's).

    Bush scores. And Tannehill scores. Those are the two guys we have. And it's no coincidence those are the two most physically talented guys on the offense, which goes back to an axiom of the NFL today: skill moves the ball between the 20s. But talent scores. We underachieve in the red zone because of talent.

    In a perfect world I'd rather have Wallace. He's the better choice if you're looking down the road and have a plan to create an elite offense. But right now Jennings is the better choice to me because he allows you to fix more things quickly. I go back and forth on it but that's where I would stand if somebody burst in and told me I had just been named Dolphins GM.

    Should be interesting to see where the rumors come down on the contract discussions for these two. That should clarify the puzzle pieces on the board a bit.

    I'd go after both, bigtime. But WALLACE is the better choice for MIAMI. The WHOLE STINKIN' LEAGUE knows that we have no true deep threat--no "burner". HARTLINE is as fast as we have, and he's a lot better than some of the dimmer bulbs on many sites give him credit for. But he is no true "burner"--he's "sneaky fast" at best. Both he and BESS would GREATLY benefit from WALLACE's presence. So would our running game. As things stand presently, opponents are crowding the l/o/s, knowing that MIAMI can't punish them for it. Have any of you noticed that our rushing attack has been getting less and less threatening? Well, IT HAS, and there's a simple reason for it. It's called "8-In-The-Box".

    So, I'd go after WALLACE first, and JENNINGS closely thereafter. I could then live w/a legit CB and an athletic G, and that's just about it for F/A. And MIAMI can do it! In fact, MIAMI probably could do more, such as a pass-rusher like AVRIL. MIAMI already has c. $47 Million in "cap" space, and e.g., just 2 cuts (MARSHALL and INCOGNITO), neither of whom is what MIAMI needs at their respective positions, net MIAMI c. $10 Million more. MIAMI could re-sign just about all of its own F/As except J LONG, and do some real "heavy lifting" in F/A. And THAT in turn leaves us w/a great # of Draft Picks, for the first time in a long time!

    Why is there this sudden obsession for either of these guys?

    Neither one is that great, but most importantly, neither one will make Tannehill any better.

    We need several receivers and dominating offensive line players, to compliment Pouncey.

    Maybe we should make Pat Devlin our alpha reciever? Do you agree? Maybe you should start a thread about it halfway through our next game.

    If both contract demands are equal? Wallace.

    But...they won't be.

    In my opinion, the monetary difference between signing Wallace and signing Jennings will be far greater than the disparity in production. I view them as 1 and 1A in this offense. Heck, the monetary difference would probably pay for the salary of our second-round picks.

    He is the best DEEP THREAT in the NFL, which is why he has scored so many TDs. This does not mean he is an all purpose WR, he can do it all but not to an elite degree. He is without a doubt elite downfield, but it's known Jennings is the better overall receiver.
