Default Re: James Harrison cant generate pressure anymore

If he wasn't held every play he would still be a top pass rusher. The official stance of the NFL evidently is to ignore the obvious as long as it puts Harrison at a disadvantage, so he is going to continue to struggle till he can get as low as he used to when running around offensive tackles. He's always been held this much, in 2010 he might as well of been pulling a plow, yet he's so bad ass that he still overcame it. He will generate a good pass rush again as soon as his knee allows it (if it ever does again). He is used in pass coverage a lot more now and it's likely because he is struggling in the pass rush. Either way he's better then Carter/Worilds, at least the run D is better with Harrison back. What I wonder is why Woodley is in pass coverage so much. He should be unleahsed on opposing QB's IMO.
