Although former Pittsburgh Steelers‘ and current Miami Dolphins‘ wide receiver Mike Wallace expects to be booed by the Steelers’ crowd when the Dolphins travel to Pittsburgh Sunday, he says he has no ill-will or hard feelings towards the franchise.
“I’m fine with the organization,” Wallace told Scott Brown of ESPN.com. “I love those guys to death. It’s all love.”
Wallace also explained why it was believe he and Steelers’ offensive coordinator Todd Haley had a feud.
“It was coach’s first year and I wasn’t in training camp so he got a chance to see other guys and the things they were able to do throughout training. For me it was just looking at tape and then coming in and playing so I think it was a little bit of a challenge for him being able to use me,” said Wallace, who has caught 56 passes for 743 yards and three touchdowns. “With BA (Arians) it was more vertical I think than with coach Haley and obviously that was my strength. I think coach Haley is a great offensive coordinator though in his own right. It’s just a different game plan.”
On the season, Wallace has 743 yards and three touchdowns on 56 receptions.
The Dolphins and Steelers will kickoff at 1:00 pm EST Sunday.
