James Harrison affected by new rules

J. Harrison had to watch himself last week against Miami (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Steelers LB James Harrison, a few days after playing his first game in an NFL world in which devastating helmet-to-helmet hits can get you suspended, admitted he backed off at times during Pittsburgh’s win vs. the Dolphins last Sunday.

That’s what he told Showtime’s Inside the NFL, via Pro Football Talk, and he said it caused him to be extremely unproductive.

"We can still play the game, but it's not the same,” he said.

During the broadcast, producers showed footage in which Harrison appeared to be less aggressive than normal. Harrison said that was a true assessment, because he was worried about facing a suspension.

He also discussed the fact he’s not worried about permanently hurting himself with one of his explosive hits.

"If that happens it's going to suck, but hopefully I'll have made enough money and put in enough time that my kids don't have to worry about it," Harrison said. "If I've got to go through a little bit of hell so they don't have to, I'm fine with that."

Losing $75,000 a pop for illegal hits wouldn’t help his bottom line either. Perhaps that’s another reason he won’t permanently injure himself with an excessive hit and will, once again, back off the next time he has a chance to blow up an opposing player. If so, good on the NFL.

NEWS FLASH
James Harrison graduated with honors from the Mike Tyson school of DUMB THUGGERY. Mark my words, he's less than 3 off seasons away from the BIG house. FULL STOP!

Wow.

That was an extremely meaningful post right there....

Considering that he is already approaching his mid-thirties, he probably won't be playing for 3 more offseasons.  Also, not sure why you think he is headed to the "big house"-- he has no criminal history, except one minor domestic violence incident that was dismissed since he was already attending anger management and his girlfriend did not want to press charges anyhow.

Nice try though.  I give an A+ for effort, F for forethought....
