Default James Harrison is a throwback

i just wanted to throw it out there that james harrison is probably the closest we've seen to the mentality of greg lloyd on the football field. he isnt out there chatting it up and making friends with the opposition like we see so often.. he isnt going to help his opponent up and pat him on the behind after a tackle. he doesnt run his mouth for intimidation, his presence alone is intimidating enough. the way he recovers fumbles by standing over the pile and ripping the ball away from everyone is pure badass. i really enjoyed watching him play this year.

LOL

Whatever.....Harrison would have never made the two deep when the Steelers have Lloyd and Greene playing OLB.

I'll agree with that. But he's not in the same league as Lloyd or Greene.

that's for sure, but he's the one that comes closest to

tell me another OLB in the NFL right now that has that kind of attitude and who's presence alone intimidates people( roids merriman doesn't count )

And it was common in the 70s too.

greene was strictly a pass rusher. he wasn't so good against the run or pass. greene was basically one dimensional, but he was good at that particular dimension

harrison is a different type of LB than greene. he is more versatile. don't get me wrong here. greene was a very integral part of steelers' defense. he was our best pass rusher in a very long time, if not the best ever. harrison will never be the pass rusher that greene was, but he does other things better. well at least this past season it appears so. consistency is the key. i hope he will be even better in 2008. perhaps woodley will eat up the left side and alleviate some pressure on harrison's side

one thing is for certain. the steelers need a stellar LB corps, not a group of LBs solely making plays as a result of the zone blitz scheme.
