Associated Press

Even if it might just be his greatest asset, Mike Wallace does little to help his own cause.

The Steelers third-year receiver just can't help himself. To him, hey, "An apple is an apple. You know what I'm saying?"

Wallace tells anyone who asks he's the fastest player in the NFL.

"I've always been feeling like that," Wallace said, matter-of-factly. "I'm still feeling like that, and I don't see anything changing."

Opposing cornerbacks who have faced him won't argue. After an electrifying five-catch, 144-yard performance in a 23-20 win in Indianapolis on Sunday that included a career-long 81-yard touchdown, Wallace is second in the NFL in receiving yards and tied for third in receptions.

The secret might be getting out on Wallace emerging as one of the league's best receivers. And Wallace does little to keep his 4.2-speed quiet, either. The irony is that it's the surprise factor that some say has helped Wallace run past so many defensive backs in his first three seasons as a pro.

"We know it because we play against him all the time," said Pittsburgh cornerback Bryant McFadden, who concurred Wallace's assertion he's the fastest in the league. "A lot of (opposing) guys, I think they get into a situation where they see it on film and they say, 'Oh, we play against fast guys all the time.' No, not Mike Wallace fast. And they really don't respect it like they should until 80 yards later ... it's a touchdown.

"He's a tremendously super, super fast guy."

What's almost more impressive than his speed is his ability to catch the ball. Whether he is in a dead sprint, dead stop, or he's trying to keep his feet in bounds, this guy is pretty darn good at catching the ball (I'd say 2nd best behind Hines).

Yep.
I said this during last season ... all anyone talks about is his speed, but he's got great hands as well. The more he improves his route running, he's going to be unstoppable.

A few weeks ago, I wasn't concerned if we lose him next season, because we still have Brown and Sanders. But my opinion is changing quickly.

I could see Hines taking a pay cut to try and keep Wallace around.

I could also see Ben doing the same. If Ben keeps getting Wallace the ball the way he is, the chemistry the two have would be hard for Wallace to walk away from.

I'd be surprised if Hines doesn't retire after this year. Not shocked, but surprised.
And Ben restructured his contract this year so they could re-sign Woodley, Timmons, and Polamalu. So I'm not sure he'd be willing to mess with his contract again.

I think we're going to lose a number of veterans after this season, so money will be there. But I don't think they'll be able to give it all to Wallace ... cause he's going to want top dollar. We'll have too many other needs. If I was a betting man, I'd put my money on Wallace leaving. But of course, I hope I'm wrong.

I hope you're right, effyou. Wallace is exceeding my early expectations for him this year after his quiet preseason. The FO needs to find a way to keep him somehow, but I'm afraid he's pricing himself out of their range with his stellar play. Get it done, Colbert! Wallace flying past opposition 1426860608

I hope he starts playing worse so we can afford him. He needs to start playing like ... what was his name again? I think it rhymes with speed. Wallace flying past opposition 1664291743

Sweed and Holmes Wallace flying past opposition 2164293255 but Wallace trumps them both, build the future WRs around Wallace.

Weslye Saunders this TE can be Heath Miller on HGH.

at 270lbs and fast for 270lbs great hands. now if he wants to block for the running game? build the passing game around Saunders and Wallace.
