    Harrison: Do not disturb, great PPG article

    They came at linebacker James Harrison in waves, and he flicked them aside as one might expect the NFL defensive player of the year to do. • One after the other, Harrison rejected them as if they were scatbacks trying to block his path to the quarterback. Only these did not occur on a football field, they were part of his swag for what he did on football fields last season. • They were offers of money in trade for his appearance or his autograph or his endorsement. It is the reward for the remarkable season Harrison had in 2008. • Yet, the two-time Steelers MVP was a hard sell, turning down "about 25, 30" such offers, according to agent Bill Parise. His reasoning: "James is James," Parise said. "James is not comfortable in a lot of those settings, and there's not a need to put him in them anymore."

    He's on a fast-track to becoming my favorite Steeler, always neat to learn more about him. Cannot wait for the book!

    Great guy. Just what you want in a football player. He's tough, nasty, and relentless on the field and works as hard as anyone, but off the field, he is quiet and shy, and doesn't need the celebrity persona most players look for.

    James Harrison is a freak period. I love this guy and wish he would have started for the Steelers when he was younger or at his prime when he was younger. I cringe every time I hear he's 31 years of age.

    you just gotta appreciate the pent up angst in this guy. the angst is for the game, everything else, leave him be. hard to believe a talent like him can keep his ego in check with the money he's making, rare breed indeed. nice article!

    He is in his 30's but his body isnt beaten up where his age isnt much of a factor.
