Default Gerry: Colbert defends Harrison

Gerry: Colbert defends Harrison

Several members of the national media asked Kevin Colbert about the style of play exhibited by outside linebacker James Harrison, who has been fined numerous times by the league for illegal hits.

One of the questions from a Cleveland-based writer who remembered the hit that knocked out Browns quarterback Colt McCoy and gave him a season-ending concussion.

Colbert didn't hesitate with his defense of Harrison and said the team has not reached a "breaking point" with their four-time Pro Bowl linebacker.

No. Absolutely not. James Harrison is a great player. He tries to play within the rules. Sometimes, the penalty is unavoidable and he ends up getting a suspension out of it. He served his time. Weve all moved on. We know James Harrison plays the game very hard. He plays it within the rules the best he can. Sometimes, circumstances happen in the course of a game and you have to live with the consequences. But in no way are we ever going to be disappointed with that player.

Colbert was asked if Harrison is treated fairly by the NFL:

Hes treated within the rules. The rules are the rules. We all have to abide by them and follow them. We try to do that. Again, sometimes circumstances lead you outside of it. But if its not intentional, I dont have any problem with the player. And I know its not intentional.

Well at least the GM backs his guy, unlike Tomlin.

yep, sadly, Tomlin and his "fish-spine" didn't "Defend/Protect" James at all.
