05:31 PM ET 10.08 | Not many things scare Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison. He does fear the NFL commissioner and the fines that often accompany his rough style of play. Harrison told 105.9 The X in Pittsburgh that it changed his approach when hitting Michael Vick in the Steelers' Week 5 win over the Eagles. "I was nervous. I thought he might duck his head, and I might hit him, and I can???t take no fines. I was worried more about the fine. . . . If at the last second he ducks his head, ducks down and we make helmet-to-helmet contact, it???s the fault of the defender."

Someone should knock him out and pay the fine.

Totally agree............

He doesn't care whether he hurts someone or not. He just doesn't want to pay the Commish.

Hard to feel any sympathy for Harrison.

Hence letting everyone know he's a changed man

James think the Steelers faithful would have wished you didn't let up against the hated state rivals from Philly coulda waited and said you held up on Hasselback

Just saying

I know right.

It only took him how many years of fines, penalties and suspensions for him to make a clean tackle?

Every one of you wish he was on your team!

Would anybody be truly upset if he took Vicks head off?

the ref's are making this the new lingerie league-- linebackers cannot hit the QB anymore, might as well play flag football== great job Goodell....

Why knock a turnover machine like Vick had been this season out or the game?

Another dirty player.

Stand still Michael, so I can hit you!

Watching that Pittsburgh game over the weekend, it seemed like the whole defensive backfield was leading with their helmets on tackles. They were getting flagged for it, too, but they kept doing it. Does the coaching staff encourage that?
