Without knowing the full story I wont condemn him, even if he did break through the door. I mean honestly James Harrison has the capacity to put a grown man let alone woman in the hospital if he was ill intended.

Look I don't want to come across as defending spousal abuse, because it's a hideous thing. But at the same token people make mistakes, particularly young people. And assuming he went no farther than one open handed slap and there's no prior history of it then I think you've got to give him a second chance.

That is a question...

If this is a reality. . . do we pick up a LB before a OL? Or do we pick up a LB in the second round?

Of course. . . this is ALL contingent on it being true.

Time will tell. As others have said, if you lay your hands on a women - no excuses. However, I note, it was simple assault and a pretty wasteful second charge. If they were to drop the simple assault charge, or he pleads to the otther charge as sometimes happens, then I think he could survive on the team. If he is convicted of the Simple Assault charge, then I think his days could be numberd in the burgh. He could also face suspension by Goodell.

Mr. Timmons may indeed stay at outside backer.

Unless this is only the tip of the iceberg I predict this will have blown over by the time camp opens up. We may never look at Harrison the same way again, but he's not going anywhere. Maybe he'll be ordered to undergo counseling, but I can't see the Steelers not giving him a second chance.

How long have you been following the Rooney's?

Do you remember Bam Morris?

True ... I think it is a misconception that we cut every player that gets in trouble. They stuck by Fats Holmes after his incident with the helicopter. Still, I got to think the image of Harrison hitting a women just burns Dan Rooney's britches.

Probably longer than you. Do you remember Ernie Holmes? Or even Santonio Holmes for that matter.

Providing it gets no worse than has already been reported I'll all but guarantee James Harrison will be a Steeler in 2008. That's not saying you have to like it, but I'll stand by that prediction all the same.

I'm sure it does, and it doesn't sit well with me either. But at the same token we have no right to be judge, jury, and executioner here. He at least deserves a chance to present his side of the story before we go drafting his replacement.

No argument there.
