Default Harrison shows us how to avoid a crack-back block.

On this play, Harrison completely and utterly owned Roy Williams, and effectively tackled Choice with his own teammate:

So next time you hear a whiny Bungle or Ratbird fan complaining about Hines Ward's blocking, forward this little gem of our linebacker handling a blindside block attempt.

By the way, if you view this video from the actual youtube site, make sure you view it in "high definition" mode.

a decent block by williams

Get off the cowboys jock already!!

It's plays like this that make harrison the DPOY. The "splash" plays. It's not just the sacks, it's his overall performance

Harrison knows his head has to be on a swivel when chasing the play.

But really it was a good block, he did his job and got in the way - I'm sure he wishes he wouldn't have done that - but it was a good "in the way" block.

Default Re: Harrison shows us how to avoid a crack-back block.

It may sound like Im talking out of my ass, but when I saw that Hagans was sidelined 2 years ago and harrison was filling in, I said to myself man this guy looks more solid than hagans, and that leap that he made over Tomlisson on that Monday night game solidified it. ONce Joey porter was cut and Harrison was said to fill in, I knew he was gonna be just as good and man I was right. Hopefully we can re sign him

Bottom Line.

Silverback isn't going to have any of that. Bart Scott and Keith Rivers need to take notes.

It helps with leverage that James Harrison is so short. Most pass rushers are 6'4'' or 6' 5''.

except he didn't actually block him from doing anything...Harrison still made the play and used him as his b*tch in the process...
