Bengals isolation booth

By Jay Morrison - Staff Writer

Cincinnati CB Terence Newman vs. Miami WR Mike Wallace

The rejuvenated Newman is having a solid season, but the fact remains that there is a lot of wear and tear on his 35-year-old legs. And that doesn’t bode well when it comes to covering Wallace, who is one of the fastest players in the league.

“He’s a legitimate guy that can obviously go, and go fast.” Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said of the 6-foot, 180-pound Wallace. “Mike Wallace is an excellent receiver, and they’ve got to try and work him the ball.”

The Bengals are familiar with Wallace from his days in Pittsburgh. In eight games against the Bengals, Wallace has 36 catches for 463 yards and three touchdowns.

But Newman held him to one catch for 13 yards in their most recent meeting in December, and Wallace has yet to really take off in his first season with the Dolphins, catching just 30 passes for 398 yards and one TD.

“I want to make the most plays for my team and for one reason or another I’ve only been able to make a couple,” Wallace said. “This is a little bit frustrating, but I’ve got to stay positive, keep the faith and know something is gonna happen.”

Newman and the Bengals are just hoping it doesn’t start tonight.
