Woodley had the same amount of sacks, and 3 or 4 of those were coverage sacks. Let's get rid of him too.

Come down from the emotion a tad bit and realize what you're saying! We will get EVERYTHING out of James Harrison before he calls it a career. He will be here for 2 more seasons and call it a career. Until then, he's our best backer on the squad, by far.

It is NOT time to move on from Harrison. Ridiculous comment. At 33 he is entering the last few productive years of his career, I grant you. However, to understand what Harrison means to the defense you have to look past the stats and to the disruptive force he is on the field. Defenses have to account for him on every play. This helps to create opportunities for the others.

Some of my posts are stupid, but this one takes the prize, lol

Its not about stats, and if you take into the fact all the stats, than take out the 5 games he played, also factor in Woodley being out.

Harrison will probably be fined for hitting below the thigh, lol Has Decker gone back and picked up his knee yet?

I'll say it over and over again until you people get it: other teams' fans are peeking in on these boards peeing their freaking pants over us "eating our own" after a tough loss.

Get a clue, people. Let's assess who we're getting rid of so far this off-season: Ike Taylor, William Gay, James Harrison, Lamarr Woodley, Dick Lebeau, Bruce Arians (my pick, admittedly), Mike Tomlin, Ben Roethlisberger, James Farrior, Larry Foote, Casey Hampton, Brett Keisel, Aaron Smith, Hines Ward, Rashard Mendenhall, Max Starks, Chris Kemoeatu, Doug Legursky, Shawn Suisham, Daniel Sepulveda.

Did I forget anyone? I'm hoping Antonio Brown can play every position on both sides of the ball, as well as coordinate and coach, because you "Steelers" fans won't have anyone else on the team.

As much as I always hated this emote...

Harrison's a monster. He's going nowhere until his contract is over, then I could see him walking away.

Most of those are extremely stupid...but you can make a point for Arians, Smith, Kemoeatu, and Suisham. Actually I think all of those are pretty much common knowledge among us Steeler fans, but as you pointed out, if we cut everybody that we wanted to cut after a loss then we would be pretty thin all the way around.

I think it's time for you to put down the crack pipe....

He had back surgery before the season started. He still wasn't 100% when the season started. Then he gets a fractured orbital bone. He still amasses 9 sacks, 59 tackles and 2 FF.... Yea, you're right, let's can him...
