Thanks for the Memories Silverback

Well I guess James Harrison has been let go. I can't say I blame the Steelers, (he will be 35 soon) but at the same time it's going to hurt them for at least this year.

In my opinion he had the best defensive play in SB history and I do not think it will ever be topped.

Don't know about you guys, but I am starting to get a little nervous about this upcoming season.

We are definately due for a couple down years. They've been too good for too long.

Where have you been?

It's a shame to see him go. But, you never know the market. Several salary cap casualties around the league. Some good players are out there. Shame the B&G have no room.

Upon hearing the news of Harrison's release, Roger Goddell fined him $75,000.

Re: Thanks for the Memories Silverback

I know it's business, but this really stinks. I echo the best play in SB history. In fact, I think it was the best play in NFL history. After that SB, at my old job, I had the newspaper pic of that play hanging on my office door. James Harrison came in to the business one day and I got to talk to him for a while. He was a very soft spoken and NICE guy. From that day forward I bought his jersey and his book and was a James Harrison fan. He autographed that pic for me right across his leg and also autographed a huge "Zero Tolerance" Steeler's defense banner for me. Business is business, but I'm gonna miss him. I would love to sit around, have a few wings and beers and talk football with him and Joey Porter.

Re: Thanks for the Memories Silverback

I have to agree with the best defensive play in NFL history.

My heart still goes to Jack Lambert though as my favorite.

Great player. Just a hard-nosed blue collar work ethic and you didn't dare mess with him. No fanfare. After retirement he's stayed out of the limelight and went on to do his life's work.

Re: Thanks for the Memories Silverback

I'm not sure it was the best move at this time, however Worilds is a lot cheaper and he is a decent OLB......

Since they are putting people on the chopping block, how about we get rid of Troy, since he makes an awful lot of money to play 2 games a year....

I agree on Troy....I'd rather take his cap hit and sign a young guy like Keenan Lewis with it.
