Is it time to suspend James Harrison?

Yes.

He has been fined multiple times this season for illegal shots to the head of other players and leading with his helmet.

The latest incident was Sunday:

"Harrison made helmet contact to the chest of Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was in a defenseless position at the time the contact was made."

So, this guy doesn't seem to learn or doesn't want to follow the rules of the game. He has already stated that he wants to hurt people. There comes a point where fining someone $25,000 when he is making millions and millions a year doesn't get through to a guy.

Taking him off of the field will get the message across. This is the 4th time this season he has been fined for illegal hits. He has already thrown his hissy-fit where he "threatened" to quit playing football because he couldn't hit players in the head with his helmet, nor could he lead with his helmet.

"I'm not expecting a fine," Harrison said Monday. "It's the exact thing as last week. It was the same exact hit. I hit him [Fitzpatrick] the same way I did the quarterback from Oakland and I got the same flag but I didn't get a fine. ... I'm expecting the same thing on this."

Send a message.

Did you spend hours working on that response or did it come to you naturally?


Forfeited Turn


Here's the latest from Harrison:

"It angers me, of course, that they're taking absurd amounts of money from me for plays that I consider to be clean and legal hits," Harrison said.

Looks like this clown hasn't bothered to read the rulebook where it states exactly what he is doing is illegal. He is going to keep leading with his helmet, keep trying to hurt people, his words, not mine, and keep doing illegal hits.

Where's the coach in all of this? Tomlin must endorse this dirty play, since he refuses to do anything about it. Perhaps Tomlin likes the idea that he has a player that is trying to take out the opposing players?

It isn't the "Big, Bad, NFL" that is doing all of this. The NFL has no reason to target a specific player, unless that player is constantly stepping over the line and is proud of the fact. If that player throws illegal hits and jumps up to celebrate like he just won the Superbowl, then perhaps he is bringing the attention upon himself.

Quite simply, if Harrison is stating he won't stop what he is doing, more drastic measures must be made to get his attention.

A 2 game suspension would get his attention.

C'mon. You are always talking junk, now back it up.

IRONMAN, the leader of the conspiracy crowd, has already declined my offer. Guess he doesn't feel as though his point of view can be backed up.

Direct challenge to one of the "NFL hates the Steelers" group.

I think hanging should be reignstated as the form of capital punishment.

Or we could just take them rascals out in the swamp, put em on their knees and tie em to a stump, and let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest.

Out West we'd just drag them down Highway 101.

True that.
