Harrison rips Roethlisberger
Leave it to James Harrison. The Pittsburgh Steelers outside LB was interviewed recently for an article in Men’s Journal. He was asked about a ton of things, including the 2004 season when they lost to the Patriots in the AFC Championship game and he said that they stole their signals.
“They got busted for it later, but, hey, they’re Goodell’s boys, so he slapped ‘em $500,000 and burned the tapes,” Harrison said. “Was he going to rescind their Super Bowls? Man, hell no!”
But the quote that is going to stand out from this interview is the one he gave when asked about Ben Roethlisberger’s performance in this past Super Bowl against the Green Bay Packers. Big Ben threw two costly interceptions early, and Harrison isn’t thrilled about it.
“Hey, at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again,” he said. “Or hand the ball off and stop trying to act like Peyton Manning. You ain’t that and you know it, man; you just get paid like he does.”
Mike Tomlin won’t be thrilled about this and we have a feeling that Big Ben won’t love it either. And we’re sorry, but…what did Harrison do in that game? Yeah, we don’t remember either because Chad Clifton basically had his way with him.
