What's everyones take on the Harrison "meltdown" in the 4th Qtr?Does it taint his great INT return? I know at the very least that he apologised for it,but I wish it had'nt had happened.It just wasn't necessary.

That guy hit him in the groin and also tried to take out his knee's a few times, I'm glad he did it, this is the Superbowl.

Thank you James has never in his career given out an cheap shot:nono:, i would have done the same thing if an guy tried to take my knees out:yesnod:, the Cards were pissed so they are the ones who resorted to cheap shots, re watch the game.

Yes he should have kept his composure and technically it was a bad decision that could have been even more costly than it was...having said that, James is this generations tough ***, flat out mean, Steeler linebacker so it doesn't surprise me that he went ape **** on him. Frankly Im surprised he didn't go after him more than what he did. Honestly there was alittle part inside me that was like yeah go get em Silverback! :reddevil:

he hit him in the pads a few times but the dude held on so harrison threw him on his back, he deserved it. i got all pumped when i saw him abuse him like a little bitch, its not like he hurt him...even though he should have

I would put him on my punt team! This is what every player is taught to do when they play football (minus the punch). It is a thing of beauty. Notice that the player getting owned is FRANSCISCO! The player who later played a key role in the Cardinals demise. I mean he was probably still scared.

He went a little over. If we were up by three scores, ok, give him the cheap shot, but when you can cost the team a game like that....bad move. However, because we won, and it didn't hurt us, I'm ok with all of it. These guys get pissed off at cheap shots and Harrison has kept his cool all year about the holding and all the no calls, and it just came out.....

So he pushed him down. Big deal. I think it is overblown. What is he suppose to do? Let him get up and get back in the play? You can see these fat *** OL lay on another player so they can't get up and there is no flag.

Harrison could have done this to him...........

i think it was just a little roid rage, no big deal, he cost us 9 points (his fault we were a yard from the end zone or where ever teh hell they placed the ball and being that close cost us the saftey and made us punt them the ball and gave them good field position to score agan), but in the end it didn't matter

I think the play was over before he punched him in the back. not sure. if so, then the push came way late...

The flag came win when he pushed him over. The play was still going on as you could see players still running towards the ball in the background.

Oh, then it should not have been called. Players do that all the time. You sure it wasn't the punch? I only saw the replay....

Here's a better video where you can see the flag come in after the shove but players still running around like the play is still going on.

What is it with these people it's not like he punched his lights out, suffice it to say had he done that the dude wouldn't have been getting up. Im sure they exchanged words at the very least and Harrison gave him a good hard shove...get over it he wasn't going to be ejected for that!

Tomlin went on to say in the post game that he was planning on telling Berger to just take the Safety so they could punt it away from a decent starting position and put their defense in a better spot to make plays on the upcoming drive.

I could care less what the other teams think. I like the Steeler's reputation as the bullies of the NFL.

Here's how I saw it and still do when watching the replay.
If that was a punch Harrison punches like a little girl.
He didn't punch him!! You can clearly see that when Francisco went to stand up Harrison gave him a good shove to put him on his backside. The play wasn't over and James didn't want the man he was supposed to be blocking to get back in the play. James had his back to the play and didn't know if the ball was being run back or not.

Oh yeah.... and F*** you John Madden!! You're just a big bag of air! Take a better look at the play before shooting your mouth off!

The officials would have been well within their rights to throw him out...

No they would not have.

IT WASNT A PUNCH -- Dude stood up and got blocked right back on his ***.

See this is how they block inthe NFL now... this isnt the 70's anymore, You can use your hands to push them an thats exactly what he did.

Was it unnesessary ? Yes and thats what the refs called.


Glad to clear that up fer ya :yellowthumb:

I just finished watching the replay about a dozen times. Harrison anticipates a chop block and gets on top of the guy. Then he delivers an open handed blow to the shoulder pad and keeps his hand there to keep the guy down. I guess that could be construed as a punch but it's not what I saw and it's certainly nowhere near a kidney. When the guy gets up he knocks him back down with a perfectly legal block - open hand to the pads. Then he does it again.

To me it looks like one aggressive football player out-hitting someone who wasn't ready to rumble. It was almost like the Card was saying "what are you doing?" and Harrison was saying "keeping your *** out of the play if my guy is returning."

My 2 cents

i think when JH put him down the first time he probably said something on the lines of...don't get back, dude replied with something nasty he started to get up, he got put back down & JH repeats himself & so on.

If that dude went after my knee's like that I would've done the same thing Harrison did. Good job man!

I heard it confirmed today on Sirius NFL Radio that before any of the action that we see between Harrison and the Cardinal player James was struck in the groin by the same guy.

The part we the fans see is the mere aftermath.

Harrison holding him down is not a penalty in itself, that's his job but hell yeah if somebody punches me in the groin you better believe I'd go after him too. You can say "yeah yeah James should have just let it go" but with Harrison that's not something he's going to let go. As good as he is you can live with the occasional personal foul for something like that because all the other things he brings to the table more than outweigh a random outburst.

He does not do this ever. And for Madden to say that he should be kicked out of the game is just dumb. Why would you even say that? He didn't even push him that hard. The guy is just a pussy and cant take a hit.

They won't do anything other than a fine if that, something like that isn't warranting of a suspension by any means.
