I'm so thrilled for this guy!! He's played his heart out and he's such a nice guy to boot!

(My Harrison autograph just got worth a little more...........I still have to get it framed along with the picture of him and my and hubby below it)

You're making me feel even worse about this pick. FSU has turned out a few good players along the way, even though we haven't had much luck with any of them. Heres to hoping he's the next Derrick Brooks.

How about waiting until Timmons actually plays regularly before we toss him in the trash, hmmm?

IMO, the pro bowl means zilch. it's great to be invited, but really doesn't mean much anymore.

now where are those fans that said harrison could never replace porter or be a starter in the NFL? i would just like to say "i told you so"

Good season, from Silverback, with a couple of great games! Very deserving of Pro Bowl honors!

Tonight is the night to bring that pressure and tally more sacks.

Congratz to Silverback, he deserved it! Here's hoping he plays his A++ game tonight in honor of his selection!

that was a great pre-game piece on james harrison, recognizing him as the next in line of a great history of linebackers. it was pretty much video clips of his highlights mixed in with those of past backers. add in his commentary and dick lebeaus, and it was really good.

i thought this little nugget was pretty funny-

on being called "silverback" being more reflective of his strenght and not his looks:

im a very handsom guy and a gorrila's ugly.
lebeau said he was a "best of both worlds" combination of greg lloyd and kevin green, and has the "mean streak" a great steeler linebacker should have.

they had a clip of him miked up vs. the bengals, telling chad johnson they were gonna find and keep his "grill" if they knocked it out his mouff again.

who needs a bounty?

lol, I would have loved to watch that. who says Silverback doesn't trash talk? he just does it in a cool way

I bet CJ didn't have answer and was like....oh....um....we suck
