Default LaMarr Woodley: Steelers’ opponents fear James Harrison

Posted by Michael David Smith on February 1, 2011, 8:38 AM EST

Steelers linebacker James Harrison wasn’t happy that the NFL docked his pay by more than $100,000 during the 2010 season for various on-field infractions. But at least one of Harrison’s teammates sees something positive in all the attention that Harrison’s brutal helmet-to-helmet hits generated.

Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley said he thinks all the attention that was paid to Harrison laying people out made some of the players on other teams a little hesitant when going up against the Steelers’ defense.

“It wasn’t going to stop the way James goes out there and plays football,” Woodley said. “But then again, it sends a message across the league for other guys that are on the opposite team playing against us. They’re worried that James Harrison may be knocking them out when they come across the middle. Now they’re thinking twice, so it kind of works in our favor as well.”

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin echoed those comments, saying he doesn’t believe the NFL’s fines changed the way Harrison approaches the game.

“He’s still James Harrison, and he still plays high-quality football,” Tomlin said. “I don’t think that will change.”

And even though Harrison’s fines have totaled more than the Super Bowl winners’ checks, Harrison will take that trade.
