James Harrison is getting no love from the officials this season. He is getting held a lot with no flag. It's one of the things I've noticed this year... especially after re-watching the games sober. I've heard there is holding on every play I just didn't know they held the same guy.
When I re-watch a game I like to keep an eye on Silverback because he's such a beast for his size. He's being held a lot and sometimes it is so obvious when he comes off the edge I'm shocked there isn't a flag. I don't know if it is becuase of his lack of size or because he doesn't have the reputation to warrant a flag. I think a more proven pass rusher might get the benifit of the doubt on some snaps.
He's just gotta keep bringin it most coaches would tell him... "dont let them hold you."
It's not an excuse for either loss, just something I've noticed that I don't think has been brought up.
