  • Wallace update...

    Found this interesting... my best friend is married to Vikings fan. Lol...


    While in Miami, Wallace started 16 games in each of his 2 seasons here. He had career highs in targets and tied a career high in TDs. In 2014, he was targeted 115 times and caught 67 passes for 862 yards, a 12.9 YPR, 10 TDs, 53.9 YPG. He was not a good receiver here, nor a good fit. There were heated debates about his practice habits and selfishness and effort in games and how his struggles were the fault of the QB. Anyway, he was supposed to be a stud in Minny with Teddy Tinyhands... instead, he was a disaster in Minny. He started 12 games, was targeted 72 times and caught a career low 39 passes for equally career lows of 473 yards and 2 TDs while being outplayed in every way by 5th round rookie Stefon Diggs.

    Yesterday, Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan were talking about Bridgewater and his deep ball "issues" - how much of a failure he's been with it, and the issues of connecting with Mike Wallace. They discussed Bridgewater's mechanics needing some tuning, then they moved on to Wallace. In their opinion, he's just not a good WR. They pointed out the fact that Pittsburgh offered him a take it or leave it contract and made no concentrated effort to keep him, then he went on to Miami and struggled like he did his last season in PB and now he's struggling in Minnesota to make deep ball connections.

    During their breakdown on Wallace, they pointed out how QB's struggle to adjust to his speed as he's an erratic runner as he never runs routes or plays the same way twice and because he doesn't "use his speed properly". He just runs... They talked about his poor routes. How often times on his deep routes he just runs down the field, and lets the DB's rub him off his spots. Kirwan was very critical of him running too close to the sidelines and not giving QB's a chance to hit him deep, because placement of the ball downfield like that is extremely difficult and when the WR is too close to the sideline, he's eliminated a good chunk of space to drop the ball in. They also pointed out his inability to adjust to the ball in the air, and discussed briefly whether that's because he runs undisciplined routes.

    And some team will pay him the big bucks next year if Minny gets rid of him....

    That's how it is....

      Funny story. What's even funnier is that if those guys are correct and Wallace is as bad as they say he is, and he still put up better stats then Kenny Stills, what does that say about Miami's "deep threat" receivers? AHA Also, Bridgewater, with his tiny hands, took his team somewhere Tannehill will never take a team he is STARTING for, the playoffs.

        There lies the mistake. Not to get political here but it looks eerily similar to a Left Wing mistake, where they try to divert attention from the real issues at hand. I did NOT read or hear ANYONE say that it was all Tannehill's fault EVER. Let me repeat that. NOBODY ever stated that it was ALL Ryan Tannehill's fault, EVER. What people did say, myself included, was that Ryan Tannehill has some serious issues throwing the deep ball and can't seem to get on the same page as Wallace. Mike Wallace was WIDE OPEN on MANY plays but Tannehill was terrified to throw to him because he knows he sucks and can't hit those deep throws. Just this season he TRIED to throw a HAILMARY, one of the easiest passes in football, and he sailed the ball OUT OF BOUNDS, TO THE RIGHT! AHAHAHA It didn't even go out of the endzone, it sailed to the right. I have NEVER seen anyone do that in all my years watching football. Is Wallace a great receiver? NOPE! Is Wallace a really good receiver? NOPE! Can Wallace catch the ball with his hands like most good receivers can? NOPE, Was Mike Wallace WIDE OPEN about 15-20 times and Tannehill couldn't get the ball to him? YEP! Sorry to be the barer of bad news and reality but everyone who isn't a fan of the Dolphins (or Tannehill) saw that Tannehill couldn't get the ball deep to anyone, not just Wallace. Hartline had the EXACT same problem the year PRIOR to Wallace coming to Miami. Wallace stinks, but so does Tannehill. :-)

        Wallace is supposed to be a #1. Stills is a #3 option on our team. Not apples to apples. But you blame Tannehill for Wallaces short comings so Bridgewater sucks too I guess. SMH As for making the playoffs, we might have too with Minny's defense this season since our was completely pathetic.

        Kenny Stills still had a better season than Mike Wallace and Stills only played in a fraction of the games Wallace did. lol...

      THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, I said for two years that Wallace was no good and others wanted to put it all on RT. While I conceded RT has problems of his own, Wallace did nothing but exacerbate the problem.
      While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

        If the Dolphins were in the playoffs I guarantee all the Tannehill followers would have their torches out ready to fight anyone who wants to give all the credit to the Dolphins defense, Lamar Miller, etc. Get my point? Yeah, it just can't go both ways for you guys. If you get Tannehill an elite o-line and defense the Dolphins still won't see the playoffs. I will let you guys have your Tannehill love fest in here while I go make better use of my time in topics that matter, like the coaching search. Have fun, boys. AHA

        I wouldn't expect you to say anything different. I would take Bridgewater over Tannehill any day. Does that surprise you? :-)

      Good stats Tannehill was much better this year throwing deep passes to Parker and Stills still needs slot of improvement. I reserve judgement till he gets an offensive line and a real coaching staff...I said before I would of rather have Ginn then Wallace ....,, cheaper price, spreads the field, and same production.

          Wallace was just a good fit with Big Ben. He throws a good long ball and Wallace was motivated early in his career. Wallace's stats in Miami were actually decent but he didn't really make any impactful plays and he didn't have good chemistry with Tannehill. It seems as though he has even less chemistry with Bridgewater. I doubt the Vikings bring him back next year. Wallace just does not have elite WR skills. All he can do is run fast and if his QB can extend plays and is very accurate with his long balls then Wallace can be effective. I just hope he doesn't end up back within our division since thats usually how these things go.

                No worries D2008, threads more often than not go off topic and you didn't the off-topic stuff. Hate I can't pull some of the stuff posted from the old forum over for laughs.

                  I would love to be able to pull posts over from the old forum. I would laugh harder then I did in this thread!! All the guys you wanted were failures. You had your pom poms out for Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas to be able to protect Tannehill all season long. You also supported Aikens, both McCain's, Lippett at corner and your incessant support for Tannehill. AHAHA

                  Yeah, that's a real shame we can't do that. Then you'd be able to re-read what I actually wrote about these guys instead of this BS you just posted. Problem with you is that everything has to be cut and dried. Hate a player or you're a supporter/lover/follower, yada, yada...

                  My stance on those guys was that the team would see what they had in both Turner and Dallas going into Turner's 2nd year and Dallas' 3rd year before discarding them both outright and drafting OL early - and that's exactly what Hickey and Philbin did. As for Aikens, there was nothing to do after Delmas' injury but hope for the best with Aikens and Thomas. The only McCain I was excited about was the rookie, Bobby. Of course I support Tannehill - he's the starting QB. Only thing ''incessant'' is your BS and thin skin.

                  In all fairness when this season started we all had our pom poms out for Turner and Thomas (fingers crossed was more like it). We were all intrigued by Lippit, who flashed a lot in TC and actually looked really good the final game of the season. We were all excited about Tannehill and the steps he seemed to be taking forward, including Freak. Tannehill had an amazing preseason from a statistical standpoint, unfortunately they only played a few dozen snaps so what we couldn't measure is consistency over 4 qtrs. I think if we went back to the beginning of the year most everyone was waiving pom poms.
