Coach Rivera hints at signing Mike Wallace (edited to include link)

No one could have predicted Jimmy Clausen would have been that big of a bust. He was one of the top quarterbacks rated in that draft at that time. They say Hindsight is 20/20.

He was always a risky choice.

Yes you could.

If he was a top rated QB....he wouldn't of had every team in the NFL pass o him and some doing it twice (while needing a QB). That doesn't happen in today's game with good QBs. That is evidence he wasn't a top rated QB. A bad QB who the media bs'd about.

So I guess the scouts were right to pass on Tom Brady as much as 6 times in the draft, to pass on Tony Romo altogether, to let Russell Wilson sit for 3 rounds, etc?

I don't see a downfall in signing the guy. It's not our money... we need to make a splash now. We could draft positions of need other than WR....

I think it makes all the sense in the world and I have little faith in it happening.

Brady is an exception...

You can you an exception to disprove just about any standard. The league showed in the draft Jimmy wasn't highly viewed.

Russell Wilson was viewed as a much better college QB. There are some questions about transitioning to the NFL that only playing will answer. If Wilson was 4 inches taller....he would have been a first rounder

Yep and he was a pitcher before too, that usually helps QBs a lot in terms of arm talent (I hate that term, but it works well in regards to this)

Us getting Mike Wallace is not the point. The fact that we are seriously considering him is.

There us really nothing in Rivera's comment that means we are even considering Wallace.

The warm comment could very well mean we are considering a FA WR and not Wallace.

We could go after him, but don't get your hopes up. You will likely be disappointed.
