Once again, James Harrison, All-Pro LB for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is running his mouth. It was one thing last year when he was complaining about the fines being thrown his way by the league. I know the rule changes upset a lot of defensive players, so I didn’t pay a lot of attention to it. Now, with no actual playing going on, his ranting is making him look like a complete tool.
In an interview with a magazine called the Men’s Journal, Harrison continued to bash Roger Goodell, this time using a gay slur. Real classy, Harrison. I understand that you don’t like him, but give it up already. We get your point. Just let it go.
Also, in the interview, he openly bashed his starting quarterback, blaming him for their Super Bowl loss. He also called their starting running back, Rashard Mendenhall, “a fumble machine”. That’s funny, considering Harrison only had one tackle that entire game. Looks to me like Ben and Rashard did more to help the Steelers win than you did, James. You could’ve missed the whole game and it wouldn’t have made a difference.
It’s also never a good thing to publicly bash your quarterback, or running back, even if that’s how you really feel. That’s the kind of thing you keep in house. All you’re doing with your big mouth is hurting the team. You want to get back to the Super Bowl, Harrison? The first thing you have to do is shut your @#$%ing mouth.
