What is it with Harrison this year?
The guy played Houdini once again and went virtually invisible? How many times has he done that this season?
I like Silverback as much as the next Steelers fan, but this year he's been a shadow of his former self for whatever the reason. I want to believe its because of the injury to Aaron Smith (teams are now able to give his side of the field more attention), but to be honest .... I haven't witnessed this to be true. I want to believe Harrison gets held on every play, but I haven't witnessed this to be true.
I just hope that Harrison isn't hitting the age wall that Farrior has hit. I don't think he has, but I'm just say'in ... Harrison isn't exactly a spring chicken.
Thinking ahead to next year, I wonder if any thought has been given to moving Harrison inside to play the "mike LB'er spot that Farrior is playing? Harrison has the strength to play the "mike" and would be perfect considering he plays mean (with attitude). This would allow us to move Timmons outside so that we could utilize his speed and athleticism a lot more than he is today playing inside.
In any event, I hope that the coaches see the current vacume that old man Farrior has left us with and elects to go LB'er in the 1st, followed by either a "S" or a "CB" to round out our first 3 picks. I'd love to see a Brandon Spikes or a Rololdo McClain in black & gold.
