Dolphins WR Mike Wallace says to ask coach why he had one catch

The Mike Wallace era in Miami began a lot like the Mike Wallace era in Pittsburgh ended: Without a whole lot of productivity. The Dolphins outlasted the Browns, 23-10 in the opener but Wallace, who signed a five-year, $60 million contract shortly after free agency began, caught only one pass for 15 yards.

After the game, he wasn't super-pumped about his debut.

Wallace's "anger" led one Dolphins fan to tweet what should be obvious (but apparently isn't):

So the most predictable offseason storyline is playing out: Wallace, who had a substandard 2012 season with the Steelers, might not be worth $60 million.

Is it too early to call Wallace a bust? Of course. But remember, he has admitted in the past to losing interest when he's not involved.

"I've never been a guy who dropped balls or just lose focus," Wallace said last December. "The first three years I was always involved, so you just warmed up in games, and were just into it.

"But when you don't get the ball for two-and-half quarters, you lose focus. But that's the type of offense this is. We're spreading it around, so you're not going to get as many targets. When you get them, you have to make the best of them."
