The Mike Wallace Effect?

This thought just  came to me: could mike wallace have played an extremely vital role in the team's success? Sure Troy Polamalu is our best and most important player; but consider this. In our first 8 games (when we were 6-2) wallace was tearing it up while accumulating 25 catches for 437 yards and 3 touchdowns. Pretty substantial numbers for a rookie if you ask me (especially in pittsburgh). Since then -during our 5 game losing streak- he's been held to just 7 catches for 93 yards and no touchdowns. Just a thought: but could it be that having wallace as our secret weapon gave us a significant advantage on offense? And since then when teams have started at least accounting for his big play ability, we've been shut out; even by defenses as bad as the chiefs, raiders, and browns.
