Default Harrison doesn't want to talk about the weather

Harrison doesn't want to talk about the weather
http://www.timesonline.com/articles/...4173807664.txt
By Mike Bires, Times Sports Staff

PITTSBURGH — James Harrison may be an all-star linebacker. But he’s not an all-star talker.

He just doesn’t enjoy talking to the media, even when he’s being asked about how well he’s playing for the Steelers.

And when he’s asked a question that he deems “dumb,” well, the NFL’s 2008 Defensive Player of the Year can be downright ornery.

He was at one point Thursday during an interview while talking about Sunday’s playoff game against the San Diego Chargers. He didn’t appreciate fielding questions from a Pittsburgh sportscaster about how the weather might affect Sunday’s game.

Question: “Did you hear the weather forecast for Sunday?”

Harrison: “No.”

Question: “It’s going to be 18 degrees. Coming from San Diego, is that an advantage for you?”

Harrison: “We both have to play in it, so what’s the advantage?”

Question: “But they are practicing in 75 degrees doesn’t that …”

Harrison: “We can go practice in the heated indoor facility so what does that matter? That’s a stupid question. I’m done.”

With that, Harrision walked away from a huge contingent of local and national media types.

Yes, Harison was right about the Steelers practicing in their indoor facility the past two days. But that field is not heated.

This week in San Diego, several Chargers were asked about the weather. After all, when the Steelers beat the Chargers in Pittsburgh on Nov. 16, it was 35 degrees at kickoff. With snow flurries and 14 mphwinds, the wind chill factor was 26 degrees.

It just so happened that Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, who led the NFL this year with a 105.5 passer rating, played his worst game of the year. He threw only for 159 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions and had a 44.4 passer rating, easily his worst performance of the season.

After practice Thursday, Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said that the Steelers don’t mind playing in wintry conditions.

“It’s like a walk in the park for us,” Arians said. “We love it.”

The weather will not be a factor. The Chargers have trouble playing on the East Coast PERIOD. Most of these guys have played in bad weather in college, high school, etc. When it comes time to crack heads, they are all football players and will adapt immediately to the play on the field.

Tempo and intensity will determine the winner. It wouldn't matter if it was played in San Diego, Pittsburgh, or Siberia.

Harrison is right. it's a stupid question.

I love how it says that Rivers had his worst game of the season against us implying it was because of the cold. It couldn't possibly have been the #1 defense in the NFL that made him play lke that, huh? Jackass!

Harrison should pick that guy up and slam him like a Browns fan.

Of course.........James knows the deal. Hes smart. It wont be long until a reporter from some major media outlet baits a player into guaranteeing a victory.
