Default Steelers' Harrison fined $5,000 for QB bodyslam

Steelers' Harrison fined $5,000 for QB bodyslam
Wednesday, September 22, 2010
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Steelers linebacker James Harrison received bad news and good today from the NFL office.

He was fined $5,000 for body-slamming Tennessee quarterback Vince Young on a sack in the third quarter of the Steelers' 19-11 victory in Nashville Sunday.

And he was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher complained publicly Monday about Harrison's hit on Young. No penalty was called on the play.

"You say if that happened to [Tom] Brady or that happened to so-and-so or so-and-so there would have been seven flags on the field," Fisher said. "Why wasn't there one yesterday? I don't know. Maybe it was the heat."

Asked Wednesday after practice if the hit was worth paying the fine, Harrison said "No!"

Harrison was credited in that game with two sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one tackle for loss, one quarterback hurry and 11 tackles. His coaches, after viewing tapes, reduced his forced fumbles to one.

Why Harrison was the only one fined is beyond me...but whatever.

Harrison is the one who grabbed his leg and forced him backwards almost on his head. That is why he was fined. The other two just did what they were supposed to do. I am sure Harrison was thinking that Young is good at escaping and he grabbed his leg to keep him from getting away. He just kind of overdid it. But personally I loved it.

i say it was probably a deserved fine and just thankful it didnt draw a flag.

i gotta be real here. with some of the pu$$yfied flags refs throw in the wake of manning, carson, brady, i woulda been absolutely livid if suggs, gregg, and lewis did that to ben with no penalty.

It was worth the fine.....although, hard to say who to fine-- that was a gang-tackle, err, gang-bodyslam.

$5000? Really? Thats like an extremely small percentage of the salary he makes a game.

If all the steeler fans that enjoyed that sack donated like 25 cents he would have his fine paid and then some!
