Harrison ponitificating about dirty hits is like John Wayne Gacy talking about child rearing.

+1

Harrison spoke the truth.  That's why he's being villified.  We love the barbarism of the game, but we don't want to admit it.

Who doesn't love it?  It's just about the only benefit of living in a declining empire.

So many outstanding quotes.

This might be my fav....

Another realization hit Harrison when Cribbs walked slowly to the Browns' sideline, then to their locker room, done for the afternoon.

"That ends the wildcat, It's out the window," Harrison said.




I liked this one.

Quote
Said Harrison of the Massaquoi play, "I was in the right place at the right time. It was zone coverage, and he ran through my zone ...

"That was a good, clean, legal hit. I put my head across the bow. To be honest, I laid off him a little bit. I could have put a lot more into him."

Harrison isn't even saying that stuff to be funny either.  He is one serious cat.

I'm definitely not wearing his Jersey within 100 miles of any place he could possibly be.  I think Cribbs and what ever the other guys name is had a tea party compared to what he'd do to someone wearing "his jersey".

Michael Lombard (NFL Network) was just on my am sports radio and the topic turned to hits.  Several were discussed then he said that both Harrison hits from last week were clearly leading with the helmet.  Really?

James Harrison Injury Hits against the Browns (Steelers vs. Browns)



Yes really.  He got away with it so thats good, but he lead with the helmet.  I love on the Cribbs hit they say he was the QB for Kent state just as Harrison pops his ass.  IIRC Harrison went to Kent State too.

The Cribbs shot was a helmet to helmet.  The Jamiroquai hit wasn't. 

Still, I'll take 53 of him on my team.

Man, that is Virtual Insanity.

 
Jamiroquai - Virtual Insanity


Anyone who has ever played the game knows that is the sound of 2 helmets colliding.  Sell crazy somewhere else.  We are all full here.   Grin

Id take 53 Harrisons on my team too.

Thanks for the link.  Yeah, the Cribs one was clearly helmet2helmet while the other wasn't.  The WR should have a talk with McCoy, there was only one way that was gonna end.

I was talking about Harrison, Rodney, not Harrison, James.

Yeah, I got it.  I just shifted to Harrison, James in my comment without clarifying.  The +1 was for your comment regarding Harrison, Rodney.   B)

I honestly don't have a problem with punishment for guys leading with the head because it risks serious injury to both the hitter and the hit-ee.  Got no problem with punishing a guy for "launching" himself in order to hurt a player.  But the league is trying to regulate something that is nearly impossible to regulate.

What if a player is launching himself to knock down a pass and ends up hitting the receiver?  What if a guy hits a guy in the numbers, then rolls the hips (proper technique) and catches him under the chin?  Some guys take cheap shots, but it all happens so fast that it's nearly impossible to determine a cheap shot from a clean hit that just hurts really bad.

Two points that I think the NFL should address in regards to this issue:

1.  Equipment. 
Rather than making rules about hitting, how about requiring players to wear better helmets that can help with the concussion issue?  How about making them buckle the chinstrap and wear a mouthpiece?  How about investing a few million with the ole R&D side of things?

2.  Rule changes.
Heard it suggested today that perhaps they should widen the field or make other such adjustments that might make violent hits less likely.  I have no idea if this is the answer, but maybe they need to consider some changes that aren't punitive.
