Sounds like sour grapes to me. Some one give this D bag a tissue. :lol:





BEREA, Ohio -- Browns center Alex Mack says Steelers linebacker James Harrison led with his helmet on more than just the two plays that sidelined two of his Cleveland teammates with concussions.
Mack said Harrison, who was fined $75,000 for his hard hit on Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi and knocked out Joshua Cribbs on a running play, speared running back Peyton Hillis when he was on the ground.
"The helmet-to-helmet with Cribbs is a little more innocent, to some extent," Mack said Thursday. "You're still leading with your head. It's a dumb move no matter what you do. If you watch the game film, [Harrison] was doing that to everyone on every play. People would be on the ground and he would try to spear them. There's a play on film where Peyton Hillis is tackled and he comes up and spears him. It's like you're being cheap, you're being dirty."
Mack said he is pleased with the media attention being given to the helmet-to-helmet hits and believes the league should do all it can to protect and educate players.
"A lot of the arguments right now are people are taught from Pee Wee football that this is how you play," Mack said. "Well, we need to change that. You can't be breaking your head. There are better ways to tackle. We're taught you're not supposed to spear with the top of your head."
Shortly before his hit on Massaquoi, Harrison blasted Cribbs, who ran the ball out of the wildcat formation. Neither Cribbs nor Massaquoi has practiced this week. Harrison returned to practice on Thursday, one day after he threatened to retire because of the league's crackdown on dangerous hits.

Cribbs himself agrees it wasn't a bad hit, but it's the Browns after all. They're mad, they suck, their team is craptastic, so why not whine :evilshake:

Peter King clearly describes the hit and plainly states it is not Harrison's fault. I am glad someone sees the light! For the life of me I have been trying to see why the NFL claimed the hit on Mass was a violation--clearly to me it is not, it was the receiver who changed position, not Harrison. He is being penalized for someone else's movement. That is not right! :cursin: :imho:

Thank god we didn't take this whiny little maggot in the 2009 draft, a lot of mock drafts had us taking him...i rarely like taking one of the fighting deadheads...i think you have to be a whiny type of person to attend UC Berkely in the first place....thank god we waited a year and got pouncey who will anchor our line for the next decade plus... while this clown cries about contact in football...fighting deadheads and steeler football are not usually compatible
