STEELERS' HARRISON: PENALIZE BROWNS FOR LETTING MCCOY RETURN

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison believes the Cleveland Browns should be disciplined by the NFL for how they handled the aftermath of Harrison's helmet-to-helmet hit on Cleveland quarterback Colt McCoy .

Harrison practiced Wednesday for the first time since being suspended one game for his collision with McCoy on Dec. 8.

Harrison says he understands the hit was illegal but wondered why the Browns let McCoy return to the game so quickly despite the severity of the collision. The 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year says if he was suspended, the Browns should also face penalties from the league.

Harrison adds he doesn't believe he'll have to change his playing style to be effective and thinks he's done a good job playing within the rules over the last year.

He has a valid point. The Browns coaching staff has already come out and said that their medical staff on the sidelines didn't see the hit McCoy took. Well the coaching staff and anyone else on the sideline did. Once a player gets hit like that it doesn't matter if he's showing concussion like symptoms or not, that player needs to be tested. Cleveland failed to do this and showed a total disregard for player safety. They should be fined or reprimanded somehow. Goodell preaches player safety, he should be having someone's head on a platter over it (I know, won't happen).

Legit point, considering the severity of his punishment for the hit.

Curious to see, if Elvis gets fined for the helmet to chest hit on Brady last week.

You must be wrong about that, to quote Goodell, " our main concern is player safety".

Ignorance is no excuse for breaking rules. I agree with you all the way.

Harrison should say whatever the hell he wants . WHY? he played well this year, in fact, he played his tail off when Fat Woodley was out. Wait, Woodley is out again.

Harisson, say what's on your mind man as there are not too many players like you on that team...

It may sound like sour grapes but he does have a point. The Browns trainers and staff clearly did not do their job thoroughly enough. When you get hit like that there's no way you should be allowed back into the game until you sit out long enough to run through all the tests.

Harrison's tends to lash out when he's under scrutiny by the NFL for something he did in a game, I'll give you that. He may not come right out and say it all the time but things like this can seem like he's just whining but league should have probably fined the Browns for letting McCoy back in the game.

Let Harrison talk, most of the time the stuff he says is pretty funny. He may have a point but it's like the NFL can fine him again for making that comment... can they???? :evilshake:

Not saying he doesn't have a point, all I'm saying is for someone who calls BS on the NFLs fining system, he sure bitches and moans for a lot of other people to get fined.
