Default Flacco on fines: Steelers’ Harrison is doing his job

Rivalry week for the Ravens and Steelers has brought us the latest example of Joe Cool being Joe Cool.

Flacco joined our Randy Moss for an interview Thursday to discuss the emotions involved in facing the Steelers, and he was asked if players have to guard against getting too hyped for the game.

“I guess some guys,” Flacco said. “I think we have a pretty mature team. Guys who know how to go out there and take care of business. I don’t really run into that too much because I like to stay pretty level-headed. Ray Lewis does a pretty good job of taking care of all the emotional stuff for us.”

Speaking of emotional, James Harrison will be lining up across from Flacco a little lighter this week. Harrison was fined $25,000 for a helmet-leading hit on Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, running the linebacker’s tab to $125,000 this season for four separate violations, which has drawn scrutiny of the policy as well as accusations the league is targeting the Steelers.

Flacco, one of the players the rules are designed to protect and thus one of the most likely to condone them, sided with the sentiments of many players when he said he doesn’t fault Harrison for his aggressive style.

“I wouldn’t like to get fined, so I don’t like to see fellow players get fined,” Flacco said. “He’s out there playing football, and he’s doing what he’s been taught to do his whole life. This is a vicious game … you’re out there not to hurt people, but to hit people pretty hard. If they get hurt, that’s what happens. It’s kind of tough to see a guy get fined that much money for doing his job.”

I really think the Ravens are supporting Harrison because they are scared that one of their own player might get targeted because the Ravens are as physical as the Steelers. Or they just found their brain.

More Ravens support for Harrison? Ugh, It makes me shiver. Two Teams that hate each other agreeing on the same thing.

Joe's off the cuff remarks don't mean much to me. He's a good player but he does not decide NFL policy.

Harrison was fined because he deserved to be fined.

It's funny how probably more than half the Ravens agree. How much longer till the Ravens get fined for playing dirty? The NFL wants that 18 game season and the two toughest teams are the Steelers and the Ravens.

The Ravens haven't been fined because their defensive players have not delivered the kind of hits the Harrison has. Harbaugh teaches hard hitting but not dangerous or illegal hitting.

The NFL isn't out to get any team or player, the policy holds for all teams.

Then you missed the ridiculous game when they played the Oakland Raiders... However, despite being penalized for over 100 yards the Steelers still won...

I got a bad feeling the reason the Purple Browns win is because of the biased refs being paid by Goodell...

i saw a Houston Texans player put the crown of his helmet square into the middle of Michael Vick's stomach after he threw the ball and nothing was called. the hypocrisy of the league is pure disgusting.

You guys may not have been fined (not for illegal hits on the field from what I can recall at least)...but shoddy reffing in this regard has pretty much cost you at least one game.

Quote:
The NFL fined Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh $15,000 on Tuesday for impermissible verbal and physical contact with an official.

During the Ravens' 15-10 loss at Cincinnati on Sunday, Harbaugh made contact with line judge Ron Marinucci in the chest while demonstrating where outside linebacker Terrell Suggs hit Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer during a questionable roughing-the-passer penalty.

"While referees are instructed to err on the side of safety when it comes to protecting the quarterback, I feel the call was incorrect," Pereira said on FOX. "Suggs made a form tackle on Palmer. And while he did land on top of him, he did not appear to unnecessarily or violently throw the quarterback down and land on top of him with most or all of his weight, which is what the rule states. I can see why the referee made the call that he did, but to me, it was a normal tackle and not a foul."

Harbaugh reiterated that he believes All-Pro middle linebacker Ray Lewis, who was flagged for tripping Palmer when he appeared to be blocked into the quarterback, and Suggs didn't deserve to be penalized.

Both penalties led to Bengals field goals.

Suggs, who was flagged last year for grazing the leg of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during a regular-season loss, said he doesn't intend to change his approach to the game.

Suggs said after the game that while the NFL is going to "protect the guys that pay their bills, which is the quarterbacks," he's not going to change the way he plays. He even questioned that if wasn't Palmer, but "a lesser quarterback," whether the flag would have even be thrown.

"I'm a physical player, and I was already engaged in him," Suggs said. "If I had to do the play again, I would do it again."

Take that for what you will. I think your homer glasses are blinding you from the fact that this will be a league wide problem in the near future. Tough hitting defense is on its way out. Goodell wants score! score! score! and money! money! money!

Lockout, then no cap and all offense = the imminent death of the NFL. Welcome to the NBA on grass.
