    This guy is just a motor mouth. Part of me likes that he pretty much says what is on his mind because I find it "train wreckish" and I think people like Goodell need to hear a little criticism but overall who can take him seriously when he talks so much. His good points get lost in the yapping.

    Harrison is a punk and a cry baby. Now he is attacking his own team-mates? He won't be around much longer.

    Attacking the teammates won't work in Steeler land. He will be gone

    He's not going anywhere.

    But if he does, I'd love him here.

    I wouldn't. Dudes got a one way ticket out of the NFL. At this point he is one sack away from Goodell giving him a year suspension just b/c he can. Goodell would probably even whisper in his ear to go play flag football.

    Aside from the fact that he's probably right about Cushing he's really picking fights that he can't win. Going to war with the Goodell is just incredibly stupid. The man can end your career with the stroke of a pen.

    That would be hilarious if Goodell did that and winked at him afterward.

    What the hell is with Harrison? Has the guy gone bonkers or is this some pathetic attempt to mirror the behavior of Chael Sonnen?? I can't believe he chose to blast two of his teammates that are both great players. That was just stupid and he will probably be traded.

    I think we are just seeing the results of doling out too many viscous hits in the NFL. Obviously it has imbalanced the juices in his brain and causes him to make stupid statements.

    James Harrison is great. He's an asshole and a psychopath and I can sit back and laugh at some of the inane shit he says (Although that crap he said about the Pats is all true) and I don't have to actually interact with him.

    Just out of curiosity re his comments about Cushing, has he ever been in contact with Cushing, played against him or is this just a statement based upon rumors, gossip, I guess what has been established and is now common knowledge from Cushings rookie season in 2009 ?

    lol. What a moron. Dude's a beast of a player, but he's obviously been receiving the brunt of the impact from tackling.

    Yeah, BoBBy wouldn't want a mean, smart playmaking OLB on his team.

    BTW, he's spot on wth his comments about Goddell and players hitting high to avoid knee injuries. Even though he's probably the wrong messenger.

    Goddell is a joke of a commish.

    Disagree with both comments - vehemently on the second one.

    Not the most appropriate way to express one's feelings, but I bet a large amount of NFL players feel the same way about Goodell. As for the Cushing remarks, I think he's probably saying the truth.

    I would find it funny if Goodell either suspended him for making these comments or fined him for it. While Harrison may be right on some things, you don't bite the hand that feeds you. Especially talking crap about your OWN teammates.

    Widespread sentiment #1 - Houston has crappy coaches, and don't have the leadership in the locker room to compensate for it.

    Widespread sentiment #2 - Pittsburgh is pretty much the opposite of Houston as it relates to widespread sentiment #1

    So what sense does it make to pick up a player that Pittsburgh wasn't able to keep under control, and deemed to much of a problem to keep around?

    Don't want him. I've got standards for the teams I root for, and as great of a player as he is, I wouldn't want this guy to have the privlidge of being spoiled by Uncle Bob. I wouldn't mind having certain players here who have had certain issues and what not, but not this guy. Not after all of the stuff he has said where he takes being a moron to such high levels. I wouldn't want any LB that would come out of nowhere bashing a great QB like Big Ben who is one of the best in the league or Mendenhall who is a great RB as well. Then he's calling the Commish names like devil and saying he wouldn't save his life if he was burning? The guy is just plain stupid. No way I'd want ta team cancer like that over here. Pittsburgh should trade him to Oakland.

    The players just hate Goodell because he was the first commish that actually had some balls and started fining them when the conduct level was outragious in the NFL. As great of a commish as PT was before Goodell, he was soft as hell on the players as far as how they were punished and Goodell's been very inconsistent with a lot of his fines and his suspensions, but at least he came in and wasn't afraid to drop the hammer. He came in at a time where players were being arrested like every day practically. A lot of the resentment is based on the fact that Goodell doesn't let these guys act however they want to in public by getting arrested without consequence. I like Goodell for those reasons.
