Is this the begining of the end for Mike Wallace?

Antonio Brown got paid by the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday night.

Mike Wallace hasn't.

And maybe he won't.

Brown got the long-term deal Wallace wanted.

Brown's five-year extension is worth a reported $42.5 million. Wallace currently is sitting out, wanting some big bucks that likely won't come from the Steelers.

Wallace can earn $2.7 million this season.

It looks like it will be his last with the Steelers.

Brown, the team's MVP last year, is the better choice for the long-term deal.

He clearly passed Wallace at the end of last year and looks like a legit No. 1 receiver in the NFL.

They've had either Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich for what seems like ages now.

And when the Steelers really needed a backup, Leftwich couldn't deliver.

Leftwich rambled 31 yards for a touchdown Sunday against the Ravens, but other than that burst, the Steelers couldn't do anything on offense in a 13-10 loss that puts them in a bad position in the AFC North.

Leftwich, with his long delivery, looks better suited for the Pirates' bullpen than behind center.

He went 18-for-39 passing for 201 yards, but couldn't help a Steelers' offense that looks lost right now.

The Ravens came into the game with a weak defense. The thought was Leftwich could manage the game, the Steelers could find a running back to rely on and they'd escape with a win.

It didn't work out that way.

And it looks like we could see Batch at QB this week -- or someone else.

The Steelers are worried about Leftw…
