View Full Version : Harrison vs the Pats?

Is there any chance James will be back against the Pats? We could really use the extra pass rush. From what I've seen Timmons has played okay at OLB, he's stopped the run decently and I haven't seen him beat on any passes, but he definetly is not a pass rusher like Harrison. I think it would benefit us extremely to get Harrison back and being able to put Timmons on a TE again instead of Foote.

i dont think so.

i would rather see my steelers miss the playoffs than see one of my favorite players go permamently blind in one eye.

but thats just me (and the coaching staff/FO). im sure other fans feel differently. :hunch:

I think he's coming back for the Baltimore game. I don't know about Worilds though if he'll be back.

Timmons is playing way too timmid on the outside, 0 takles last week and a whopping 2 today! Many games last season llaying in the middle he led the team in tackles.

I thought I heard them say during the game another 2-3 weeks before he comes back?

He's not going to go blind from a broken orbital.

But he is going to re-break it if he comes back too soon

Yeah I'd rest him up in hopes he'll make it back against Baltimore. I'm sure he's licking his chops to get another shot.

We're getting no pressure from Timmons but our D is playing surprisingly well regardless.

Whatever the medical staff and coaching staff decide we have to trust them,

I'm sure he'll be lobbying to play. You know he wants a piece of Brady worse than anyone on the team.

Though that could work against us, in-fact, if he doesn't play we should have him up in the booth rather than on the sidelines so he doesn't get flagged for the ol' "Extremely menacing scowl within 100 yards of Tom Brady or Peyton Manning,, on the defense, 15 yard penalty," from the sidelines.

When he sees Tom Brady: "Ahhh, a girl with GREEN EYES!"

i would love to see him back on the field and healthy but he should rest till that orbital is fully healed.

I agree, I just don't know how his recovery is going and couldn't find anything on it. I definetly don't want him to rush it, but it would help us a lot against the Pats especially the way Woodley and Keisel are already getting pressure.
