Ken Weinman: Will Harrison Ever Learn?
The Pittsburgh Steelers have a huge game this Monday Night against the San Francisco 49ers and they will be without the services of former defensive player of the year James Harrison. Harrison has been suspended one game for his helmet to helmet hit on Cleveland Browns QB Colt McCoy.
Whether you like what the NFL is doing or not, the rules are the rules. Harrison is either going to have to adapt to the rules or continue to get fined or suspended. Sounds to me like Harrison will resist change, citing the fact that he’s playing the game he’s always played. Well, the game has changed. Hits that used to be textbook are now fine-able…and suspend-able.
The good news is that the Steelers loss is usually the Baltimore Ravens gain
