Steelers WR Mike Wallace won't be ignored after drop-filled Week 7
Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace had a Sunday night to forget as he dropped four passes, including a tipped pass in the end zone. But quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Monday that he won't think twice about targeting Wallace often in future games.
"I don't shy away from them even with drops," Roethlisberger said of his wideouts. "I will always have confidence in them no matter what. These guys all hold themselves to a really high standard, and it just shows how valuable these guys are to our attack."
Wallace caught just eight of his 15 targets for 52 yards and obviously could have had a much bigger outing. Still, the sheer number of targets he saw is a good thing, and since Wallace dropped just one pass in the first five games of the season, feel free to write off what happened against the Bengals as a fluke.
