Default Re: James Harrison cant generate pressure anymore

I wouldn't worry too much about Silverback. He was in contain this game - probably in part because he's not at 100% in drive and flexibility. But there's one hilarious play I think in the 3Q where Washington just clear out the blockers in front of him and he just stands there on the line with his arms out wide like he's playing British Bulldog (Red Rover do you call it in the US?).
I for one am glad he was under instructions not to rush, even in extreme situations like that. In the past he would have just bulled in and they'd have popped a short pass over him to the RB.
It's part of a theme I've seen on D these last few weeks as we improve.
In the past we've been ruled by the raw talent of the likes of Troy and James.
But now we have to get more clever and disciplined.
