Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace certainly is aiming high this season. He had 1,257 yards receiving last season, but in 2011 he wants more. A lot more.â†µ
Still, the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver insists he wasn't kidding when he told reporters last week that he planned on racking up 2,000 yards receiving this season.â†µ
That's more than Jerry Rice, who holds the single-season record at 1,858, ever put up ...â†µ
"I'm not saying that I'm better than any of those guys, but I feel like I'm Mike and I'm my own person," Wallace said Sunday. "I don't care what Jerry Rice did. I don't care what Randy Moss did."â†µ
Hey, why not? I think that's awesome. You go, Mike. Sure, he's probably not going to top Jerry Rice's best season, but if a guy with Wallace's talent who's heading into his third year in the league can't set a ridiculously high goal for himself, then who can?â†µ
Wallace already averaged 21 yards per catch last year, so if he's going to add appreciably to his 1,257-yard total in 2011, he'll probably have to catch more passes. That's the key.â†µ
