Man this thread certainly exploded!! I was at work yesterday and couldn't add my 2 cents, LOL. This is total B.S. But I stop short of calling out Tomlin for his "public" stance. As some have pointed out on here, he has no choice, no sense in making the issue worse, especially with us going to national T.V where inflammatory comments from our HC might bring more game flags on us.
I have left my message with the league office but (I know this might be an odd statement to make) I think this might just bring this team together even more if that's possible. Watching the fire and intensity we played with when Ben came back on Thursday and now this. This will make us an even tighter unit, make us play with the mentality of us against the league again , as it did last season with all the b.s fines against James. This could be the very thing that vaults us to our 7th championship.
A final thought on the great Steelers posters here arguing with Ratbird fans. What's the point, they only come here to troll when there is controversy against us to stir shit up. They simply aren't the effort. Ignore them and maybe they will go away.
I see us totally devastating the niners Monday night.

Beware NFL, the Steelers are coming!!!!!!!!!

Certainly did not see this opinion coming (which is shared by Peter King)

The TV analyst Cris Collinsworth, a longtime advocate for player safety, said he probably would not have suspended Harrison at all, even though it was a foul. McCoy appeared to have turned into a runner as he scrambled out of the pocket, Collinsworth said, leaving Harrison little time to change course once McCoy quickly fired a short pass.

Appeal by phone? At least Harrison and his agent will not waste the cost of plane fare on this charade.

And I'll say it yet again: Pat Shurmur put Colt McCoy in far greater danger than James Harrison ever did. Will he get suspended? Don't hold your breath.

Quote:
Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren says quarterback Colt McCoy was not checked for a concussion while he was on the sideline after a helmet-to-helmet hit by Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison.

"Was Colt examined on the sideline? No, he was not," Holmgren said in a wide-ranging news conference Wednesday during which he maintained the team followed proper protocol.

Holmgren said Browns trainers did not see the hit and did not realize the impact because they were treating other injured players.

Holmgren said the team's medical staff, which he called "the best in the NFL," felt McCoy was "lucid and talking" when they treated him on the field. He said trainer Joe Sheehan told coach Pat Shurmur McCoy "was good to go."

Holmgren said McCoy did not show any concussion-like symptoms until well after the game. He said McCoy was tested for a concussion in the locker room by one of the team's doctors before returning to Cleveland.

Holmgren also clarified that the team had spoken with Brad McCoy, Colt's father, who was outspoken following the loss to the Steelers.

"We want to be, and we have been, and we will continue to be, at the forefront of good medicine," Holmgren said.

McCoy was sent home with a headache Wednesday and Holmgren said the team is following protocol to treat him. Holmgren was involved in the meetings on Tuesday with members of the NFL's medical staff and union members.

Holmgren took exception to the idea that it's just another frustrating chapter for a team that's appeared in only one playoff game since returning to the league in 1999.

"Another irritant to me? 'It's business as usual around the Cleveland Browns' ... It's not."

I'll tell you why he wasn't checked for a concussion. He didn't have one in my opinion. The force that sent him to the ground was mainly Harrison's arm push. The flag is warranted in today's nfl, any fine or suspension is ludicrous.

C'mon man. There's a difference between a little ribbing from an opposing team's fans and just straight out douchebaggery. I mean hey, our team was dumb enough to cut the guy, seems only reasonable for us to be pleased that he's apparently not going to play in what is probably the last regular season game you guys have a realistic shot at losing.

Is it really that bad to come on here and make the point that, yeah, the NFL is getting ridiculous, but for crying out loud, shouldn't Harrison have seen this coming and changed at *least* his attitude if not the way he plays? I mean really I think this goes back to how the way you conduct yourself can come back to haunt you.

And say what you will about Ray Lewis - if anything, Harrison should learn a little something from the guy about how to rehabilitate your image to stop from hurting your team. You are right - Ray has plenty of fines for hits, but the way he has carried himself since the Atlanta incident has a lot to do with why he hasn't been suspended.
