Jeremy Conn: James Harrison Suspended
This may not a popular opinion on James Harrison, but I don’t think he should be suspended.
The hit he put on Colt McCoy wasn’t a clean hit, but I don’t think you take the man out of the playoff race for a game. It wasn’t a malicious hit or a cheap shot, but it was illegal. He should be be fined and it should have gotten a penalty flag. I don’t think he should be suspended for doing his job. He made a tackle. Sure, it was too high and I do believe Harrison is a dirty player, but for me the question is “Does he deserve to be suspended?”
I think its great for the Ravens that he is going to miss the 49ers game. I just really question the league for suspending him for play on the field. It’s my opinion, even though it wont be a popular one.
