Steelers WR Mike Wallace Says He's Moved On From His Contract Squabble
Mike Wallace has put together some impressive numbers during his career. But his career-high four drops against the Bengals nearly got into his head.
Wallace is convinced he remedied the situation in preparing to face the Washington Redskins on Sunday at Heinz Field.
“I’m upset it happened, but you can’t dwell on it too much because it’ll roll over to the next game,” Wallace said. “I’m good about it now because I caught everything in practice this week to get it off my back.”
Wallace has gone back to the basics, polishing his routes and using his eyes to the watch the ball in before tucking it away. He challenged cornerbacks Ike Taylor and Keenan Lewis to help sharpen his focus.
Still, he’s perplexed about his uninspired performance against the Bengals.
“I don’t know what happened,” he said. “It was kind of a snowball effect. I took my eyes off the first one, and I had hard time shaking it off.”
