Wallace was benched for the second half of that game after a sideline incident. During the interview, Wallace was not mentioned by name.
“First of all, in my opinion, he's a coward," Maurkice Pouncey said. "I never want a guy on my team like that to walk out on your band of brothers. Forget the things that don't happen in the game. Say, you don't get the ball a lot, or you mess up and they pull you out. Forget all that. It's about playing for your brothers."
Maurkice Pouncey and Wallace were teammates with the Steelers for three seasons from 2010-2012.
