The Patriots are prepared to face Steelers WR Mike Wallace on Sunday. They have watched him on film, they know his skills, they’ve seen him average 20 yards per catch and reel in a 95-yarder against the Cardinals.
But stopping the speedster is a whole other deal. Every team knows Wallace will get deep, and he still does it. Yesterday, Patriots CB Devin McCourty talked about the challenges.
“He’s probably the fastest (we’ve seen),” McCourty said. “I know there’s a couple guys in this league and it’d be interesting to see them line up and race, but when you watch him on film, he’s definitely the fastest guy.”
