Linebacker James Harrison has continued to wreak havoc on opposing offenses so far this season, picking up right where he left off last year when he won the NFLís defensive player of the year.

Harrisonís efforts early on this year have earned him AFC defensive player of the month honors for October.

In four games in October Harrison has seven sacks, 25 tackles, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

Harrison opened the month by sacking San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers twice, while adding three quarterback pressures. Harrison sacked Rivers in the fourth quarter, forcing a fumble which James Farrior recovered.

His flurry of sacks continued against Detroit, taking down Lions quarterback Dante Culpepper three times. Harrison forced Culpepper to fumble early on, but the Steelers didnít come up with the recovery.

Harrison also was a thorn in the side of Vikings quarterback Brett Favre with two sacks and three quarterback hurries, while adding seven tackles.

This is Harrison's second player of the month award, winning it previously in November of 2007.

This is good to see. I know Harrison was beating the shit out of people lately, but I didn't fully comprehend how badly he was beating the shit out of them.

And with Woodley coming along nicely (finally) the Defense is going to be awesome. I can't wait for the 2nd half of the season.

And to think the only way to stop him is to hold him on a regular basis.If not for that he'd probably have twice as many sacks.Some guys have good leg strength and others have upper body but he has both and a great technique for the sack/strip that you don't see very often.A beast looks at him and says. "Damn that guys is a beast!"

The man is a beast and I am glad he is a Steeler. Hopefully he will continue to play at a high level this year.
