It’s been a good week for James Harrison. By his own admission, Harrison has come along slowly since coming out of “retirement” in the wake of Jarvis Jones injury. But each week he appeared to get closer to the quarterback.
- Still, Steelers Nation wondered, is this all Debo has left?
- James it appears, still has something left in the tank.
Harrison was quick to admit that the Steelers have issues on defense which needed to be fixed, but he minced no words when it came to the issue of “the game passing by”Dick LeBeau, commanding:
It's nothing about Dick LeBeau is getting too old. You've got a bunch of idiots that don't know what they're talking about when they say that so I do take it a little personal. [Emphasis added]
Thank you James, thank you very much.
Let’s concede that there are kernels of truth behind the arguments put forth by the “Fire Tomlin,” “Fire Haley,” “Fire LeBeau,” “Fire Colbert,” and “Fire the Rooneys” crowed that has dominated Steelers Nation during the 5-3 start to the 2014 season.
- Until the Colts game, the Steelers offense has preformed under par
- Ben Roethlisberger has perhaps had too much autonomy in the Steelers offense
- The Steelers have again “played down to the competition” an unsavory Tomlin trait
- Some of the Steelers draft decisions/methodology does deserve greater scrutiny
- Perhaps LeBeau is trying to do too much with the talent he has
Dick LeBeau could decide to hang it up after this year. The man is 77 after all, although he doesn’t look it. But if he does, he’ll be doing so while stepping down as one of the game’s greatest defensive geniuses ever.
