    Joey Porter or James Harrison

    As a Steelers fan it has been great seeing outside linebackers dominte on the defenseive side of the ball for so long. I wanted to start a thread on which of these two linebackers you would pick in there prime. I want to compare Porter and Harrison. I'm not saying either one is worse but one of them in my opinion was more dominate. Porter had a longer career but dont take anything away from Harrison on that. I have some stats here below so noone really has to go doing homework before they decide. Keep the thread civil and no bashing on other's opinions. Keep it classy. I would have to go with Porter. The guys had such a nastiness to him every game. Fast explosive and played his *** off every game and ran his mouth off before every game at midfield. I miss watching Peezy play in the black and gold. Im glad he retired a steeler. Im just glad I got to watch Porter and Harrison follow up right after he left to keep the dominate pass rush coming from the edge.

    Stats off of when they started a full season.

    Harrison 2004-2010 seasons

    488 combined total tackles
    49 Sacks
    18 Pass def
    5 Int's
    25 Forced Fumbles

    Porter 1999-2006

    448 combined tackles
    60 sacks
    43 Pass def
    10 Ints
    18 Forced fumbles

    I loved the way Peezy talked, and backed it up. But Harrison is just nasty....such a tough call.

    Both great blitzers.
    Both pretty good agaisnt the run and pass.
    Both very intimidating to the opposing team.
    Harrison hits harder, no question.
    Porter had the speed, no question.
    Harrison is the "big bad wolf" of the NFL.
    Porter was the vocal leader of the team.

    I would go with Peezy, just based on his ability to fire up the team with his vocal leadership, all the while intimidating the opposition. Plus you gottta love the half-rolled up jersey pre-game routine, haha.

    That's a really tough call, both guys in their prime were as good as it gets. I loved Peezy's trashing talking attitude and emotion that he brought to the team. I miss those rallying cries; WHO RIDE..WE RIDE.


    Stats wise they are pretty similar, but Peezy has been able to stay healthy for more of his career than Harrison has.


    Harrison has the swagger of "I'm going to kill your family while you watch and then kick your *** for watching". He just plays mean, similar to how Greg Lloyd used to be.

    They were very similar against the run and sacks. I'd take Porter because he seemed better against the pass but harrison had the biggest int in Steeler history.

    Jack ham was the best OLB I ever seen for the Steelers.

    You can't because you weren't around. Us old timers can. We take into account different systems and eras.

    Hello from a fellow old timer. I don't include the 70s guys because I don't think that team could ever be replicated. It was a once in the NFL that will never happen again. The other so-called dynasties can't even begin to compare.
