When Will Harrison Learn?

       Here we go again … another vicious and illegal hit from Pittsburgh’s James Harrison. I’m surprised that we haven’t heard a comment yet about how the league is out to get him.  When is this guy going to learn? Yes, football is a violent sport, but there are rules that must be followed.  Harrison has been fined more than any player in the league over the last few years, and yet he continues to land these hits with the intent to injure.  This guy just does not get it.

The thing that bothers me most about Harrison is that he feels he is right and everyone else is wrong. He gets upset after getting a personal foul called for the hit. Newsflash: because of you, the league has been cracking down on helmet to helmet hits. 
  If you watch the video from the Thursday night game, you can clearly see Harrison lower his head as he gets set to hit Cleveland's Colt McCoy. This is clearly a violation of the new rules. Steelers fans will argue that since McCoy left the pocket, he was no longer covered by the “protect the quarterback” rules.  My argument is that this was clearly a helmet to helmet hit on a defenseless player. 

It’s obvious that the flags and fines are not teaching him a thing. If the Steelers care at all about their image they will kick him off the team. He is a liability. At the very least he needs to be suspended. If Ndamukong Suh was suspended 2 games for his Thanksgiving Day stomp, then Harrison deserves at least 5.
   Message to James Harrison: stop being selfish and embarrassing yourself. You are hurting your team and need to grow up or get out.
