Default Is it time to move on from Harrison

I think it is.

9 sacks, but hardly was ever a game changer. It seemed like he was just pushed wide by the tackle as he tries to speed rush to the outside every play. Add in the penalties, fines, etc. and I wouldn't be too sad to move on.

It's hard too say really. He's still playing at a very high level and outside of the broken orbital he's been pretty much injury free. However, we're facing pretty big cap issues this year and need to inject some youth. If it comes down to being able to keep WAllace,Brown, and Sanders or Harrison then 2012 will probably be his last season.

No.

9 sacks is a respectable number especially when you factor in the injury and suspension. He got off to a slow start because he was coming off surgery, he was becoming a dominant force again right before he got the eye injury.

He's still got another few years in him.

9 sacks while missing 5 games and playing hurt in a few. Causing the fumble in Indy was a game changer. I know a lot of people agree, and I know a lot of people will disagree, but he is held EVERY PLAY that he rushes on. Harrison's style is the Steelers style and he's playing great IN SPITE of the constant holds. If you replace him with somebody else who can get sacks like Harrison, plays the Steelers style, and gets to the point where he's playing as good as Harrison, have no fear he will be targeted and held all year. It doesn't get better than Harrison.

He played great up until the time he got suspended.

Unfortunately, the legue's rules have influenced "his style" of aggressive play. Plus, he hasn't been 100% either, its easy to over look his injuries and bad back due to all the other highly publicized injuries to everyone else.

I loved when he went low yesterday and took that guy out of the game. I never want any player (maybe Flacco, Ray Lewis, or Brady) to get injured severely, but that must have really got Goodell's panties in a bunch. Here he is all year punishing every hit that was legitimate 2 years ago under the false premise of player safety, yet the man under the magnifying glass specifically goes low to cater to Goodell's rules and he hurts the guy he is hitting far worse than anybody he hurt with those alleged "illegal" hits. Yes I know he gave a few guys concussions, but I have had a concussion, and I much rather have that then my knee blown out and require surgery.

I fully agree with that. He pretty much demonstrated what happens if you force a defensive beast to go low all the time. Unfortunately, Goodell will likely have this in mind when he signs the suspension for the Tebow hit.
