Talking "Just how intimidating is James Harrison"?

brilliant observation and analysis from craig wofley in one of the best blogs out there-

Everybody’s Got A Plan

http://craigwolfley.com/2011/01/everybodys-got-a-plan/

Quote:
During the Browns game last Sunday, a play began to unfold in front of me as i watched from the sidelines with a great deal of interest. Browns WR Mohammad Massaquoi was split towards the Steelers sidelines and began with much verve to go in motion towards the outside LB of the Steelers James Harrison.

Harrison, from his two-point upright stance outside of the Browns OT Joe Thomas, was looking into the backfield of the Brownies. Obviously a crack-back block was about to be initiated by Massaquoi on the apparently unsuspecting Harrison.

Just heartbeats before the snap of the ball, as if with Samurai-like sixth sense, Harrison suddenly turned his head towards the sidelines and his eyes locked on the approaching attempted blindside hit by Massaquoi.

When Massaquoi saw that he was “outed” on his blindside hit, all the conviction that was there just seconds ago to go in and drill the Silverback apparently ran like water out of Massaquoi.

The confident stride of Massaquoi turned to a bumbling, stumbling last few steps under the glare of Harrison and Massaquoi got called for illegal motion because he mis-timed the snap count. It was like watching a confident Fred Astaire dance turn into a “Nutty Professor” Jerry Lewis toe-tap.

Do you think at the start of going in motion Mohammad thought about the October 17th hit at Heinz Field and was looking for a little payback? And is it also possible that James’ hit on Massaquoi left an “impression” that won’t soon be forgotten by Mohammad?

In the immortal words of boxing great George Foreman, “Everybody’s got a plan until they get hit with the right hand.”

James fed Massaquoi the ”Right hand” at Heinz Field, and in the re-match at Cleveland Browns stadium, he didn’t even have to do that.
= OWNED!

Great read! Amazing how Harrison had the instinct to look MoMass's way. I love the break down and would really love to see the film on that one! Thanks for sharing.

i agree with you. I thought Porter was over-rated and was glad to see him go...i didn't want the team spending big $$$$ on him

How Intimidating ?...enough to slap around a 125 Lb woman! But yet, he, even though PROVEN Guilty was never suspended by the Rooney's. But Ben, who was never charged, Inticted, or even questioned was suspended,,and ridiculed by the Rooney's!



Can you all say MAJOR Hypocrites ?

Dude's pretty intimidating but at the same time is cool as hell and is a big joke-ster.

Over the past couple years, he was one of the biggest names at that Steelers basketball event communities hold. He had so much fun, lifting all the small women basketball players on his shoulders so they can dunk and laughing and having a great time. I was walking in and he was going in the locker room. I gave a "Silverback!" with my high five extended. He glared at me, lifted up his hand and gave me a good one. Made my night haha.

Ben was never suspended by the Rooney's either.
