Harrison has the athleticism to do this and had the time to do this. Instead, he chose to launch himself head high and to lead with his helmet. He should be suspended because this is the latest in a series of such choices.

    If Harrison had his head up, he would have seen that McCoy was no longer a :runner.
    WHat a dummy.
    Dock his pay.

    It was a cheap shot, pure and simple. Fines don't deter this guy, it's time to suspend him. He's going to end someone season and maybe even a career if the league doesn't reign him in.

    Re: James Harrison

    As I said last night, James Harrison could have easily speared McCoy in the chest and called it a day.

    After watching the a handful of times, I see it as a dirty play. McCoy didn't lower his head at the last minute, atleast to my eyes. If he did it was very slight. I feel the rule is unfair to defensive players because of the aspect of offensive players, especially recievers, a lot of times lowering their heads right before the hit. However, in this case the offensive player didn't lower his head, and thus altering the location of the hit.

    I feel Harrison could have held up as well. He just chose to hit him in the head.

    I'd be interested in what Harrison's explanation of the hit is.

    Looked like leading with the crown to me. Repeat offender. Time to sit.

    I know these guys have a lot of money. But you'd think that Harrison would get tired of paying these fines. I can think of better things to waste tens of thousands of dollars on.

    Dude spears on about 50% of his tackles. He has shown no interest in ever doing it differently. If the NFL actually had any interest in safety, other than protecting franchise QBs, he would have been suspended several times already.

    Why did Harrison lower his head at all? McCoy already threw the ball - Harrison had to have seen that happen right in front of him.

    I expect a fine. It should be a suspension, but it won't happen.

    Yeah, I think he's going to sit a game or two. He clearly isn't getting the message.

    Right on both counts.

    In any other city in the universe, Harrison would have spent the wee hours of this morning trying to make bail. That wasn't a tackle, that was clear-cut assault & battery, if not attempted murder.

    But he's a Stealer, so if the league even bothers to suspend him they'll find a cakewalk on the remaining schedule--oh, looky here, the Lambs at Heinz on Christmas Eve! My, my, how convenient. Five gets you ten he spends that day warm & dry at home wrapping presents (& the next morning trying to get his new Jack Tatum action figure to work)...

    Hyperbole perhaps?

    That hit totally changed the outcome of that game. The Browns were driving. Harrison didn't make any attempt to alter his course after mccoy threw the ball. Typical cheap shot that they do when they are in fear of being beaten. It seemed the crowd there was boo'ing the flag, until they saw it on the replay then got really quiet. Make him sit, but only after Tomlin tells his team thats a legal hit. They should suspend tomlin too.

    The attempted murder part, I'll give you. (Hey, if I can't wax hyperbolic about the Tar&Urine, what good is fandom?)

    But assault & battery? Understatement, if anything. Watch the replay a few times & tell me that thug didn't launch his helmet straight at McCoy's head with the intention of knocking him out of the game via injury, if not paralyzing him for life.

    Harrison is an idiot who compensates for his stupidity with viciousness. IOW, the quintessential Stealer, & the perfect bookend for The Rapist Drama Queen.
