James Harrison has once again  pushed the envelope when it comes to head hunting, once again he took a shot at  a Cleveland Browns player, this time was Colt McCoy.

Once again the NFL  has been slow to hand out a penalty , this time rather than the reported 50,000  dollars in 2010 for hits to the head of Cleveland Browns players , they should  give Mr. Harrison a season ending suspension.

The alternative would be to  wait until he puts someone in a wheelchair or worse yet  kill someone.
Here  is an article I wrote for the Bleacher Report in 2010, nothing has  changed:

PITTSBURG STEELERS: WILL THE NFL STOP HEAD HUNTING
By

(Senior Analyst) on October 18, 2010

I guess someone has  to get seriously hurt or killed before the NFL puts a stop to head hunting trend in this league.

There wasn't a better example than James  Harrison's hits on Joshua Cribbs and Mohamed Massaquoi, the Pittsburgh  Steelers linebacker pounded on both of the Cleveland Browns offensive players and took them out of the game.

Was that the intended consequence, it  could have been, they are two of the best offensive players on the Browns roster.

We can sit around and call Mr. Harrison a dirty player, but lets  be honest, that's the culture of the game, even at the high school level the  "knock out" hit is a big "badge of honor" for the deliverer.

Can  we agree on that ?

Maybe Mike Ditka has the right idea- NO FACE MASK-  maybe that way the pretty boys won't use their heads as a weapon.

Just  saying. (end of article)


You see, I guess nothing has changed, Mr. Harrison keeps on  challenging the NFL, here is a quote after last years fine:

"I'm going to  sit down and have a serious conversation with my coach (Wednesday) and see if I  can actually play by NFL rules and still be effective," Harrison told Fox. "If  not, I may have to give up playing football."

To take a quote from the  famous movie Gone with the Wind "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn" maybe Mr.  Harrison should just retire.


Enough said.

Maybe Harrison and those like him should do a shift at a convalescent home and get a first-hand experience as to just what the 'victims' of his type of football have to go through just to get through their day. I had two months of rehab relearning how to walk (non-football related) and seeing the struggle some people went through was enough to make me cry. I'm beginning to hate football.
