So Harrison is allowed to criticize coaches?
 
Everyone crucified Ben for the comments after the Dallas game, but here's what Harrison said:

Quote:

James Harrison spread the blame among all.

"We have to do a better job as players playing the game, individually and collectively. We have to do a better job as coaches, coaching the game, and putting our players in positions to make plays.

"We have to do a better job as players of playing, and a better job as coaches of coaching."

I expect several threads about how Harrison has an ego now.

he's allowed to say anything he wants. Seriously, would you want to be the coach to tell him to shut up?

Seriously though, I'm surprised to have not heard anything about this either. Maybe it's because he's on his way out, who knows?

yeah, i saw that earlier today and was like "uh-oh........Harrison's stirring the pot again" lol

Hard to figure who that is directed at. Tomlin or LeBeau. Or both. But i like the comment. Someone's showing some passion. And he's right : we have done a good job of playing OR coaching.

Because in Pittsburgh, it's only bad when the star QB does it. Anyone else and it's swept under the rug. Which is odd, because his comments can be taken as a shot at LeBeau.

yeah - it just gives you an example of the unbelievable scrutiny put in every single word Ben utters. If he said this (or anything that ANYone on this team has said about.....well....anything) - oh my - the s**t would be hitting the fan today all over the city and on all the sports analysis shows as well.

Given his price tag, he's likely to be gone next year. Problem solved.

well what he says is true, they need to do a better job all around

teams with good players + good coaching do not go 8-8

he either restructures or he's gone or I if we keep him at his current price, I don't know who this front office is anymore. The Steelers of old had no time or money for guys who are incapable of living up to their contract value.

James Harrison?
Who is this guy you speak of?
I thought he was on IR or something. I don't remember hearing his name called this year.

No one cares what the crazy OLB says because no one takes him seriously.

Harrison made threats about Goodell.

If anyone has a quote where Harrison calls out coaches specifically on his side of the ball I'd love to see them.

Harrison blames Ben and the offense for the Steelers woes. He always has.
