Mike Wallace was clearly displeased with his performance on Sunday after hauling in one pass for 15 yards, and for good reason. Wallace was given a $60 million contract this offseason to make more plays than he did last week. Much was made of his post game disappointment. His mother’s advice? “Smile”
While Wallace said earlier this week that his perceived displeasure with the game plan was really displeasure with how own performance, Wallace’s mom told him that people aren’t going to see things that way. She advised him that he should “always smile” after a win in order to avoid any future issues. – NBCSport.com
As always a mother giving great advice. The fact of the matter is that Wallace is getting paid to play better than he did last Sunday and his performance wasn’t up to his standards. He should be disappointed with how he played but wearing those feelings on his sleeve will leave him open to unnecessary media criticism.
