Some of that decision is in the hands of the Steelers worst position coach... which leaves it up for debate.


So you're saying it was Porter's call not to play JH against the Bears?

Position coach is the one who generally decides which guys play, especially rotations and backups. You can blame the DC or the HC for not saying, "Why the hell is Deebo not going in the game?"

My whole problem with James Harrison and how they are approaching his situation is how stupid the coaching staff are.

Hmmm. They make excuses for Bell and say he is a bit 'rusty' and out of sync because of his time away from camp and not playing the preseason.

They make excuses for Bryant not being fully up to speed and dominant because he was suspended for a year, it will take time for him to get reacclimatized to the speed of the game, etc.

So, now they are, by choice, refusing to give Harrison any snaps at all, keep him sealed in this ziplock bag, and only bring him out when they really need him?

And he is supposed to be able to make any sort of difference at that point, expected to be dominant, a playmaker?

It is obvious that a player needs to be active and getting snaps, be in there with his teammates, have a comfort level, communication, have meaningful reps to be able to step in and contribute.

Last season Harrison after the first 4 games had 128 snaps counts on defense, this year he has 7 snaps. And for all of this talk of how Harrison does not play special teams, well last season he had 38 snaps on ST. Moats does not really play all that much on special teams just as a blocker (the LT?) on punts? You are telling me that Harrison couldn't do that in place of Moats and be the active 4th OLB?

All I know is that Harrison is probably going to go deep into the season then be called up and then probably pull a hamstring because of a long stretch of not playing. They see what no activity did for Bell and Bryant and yet they are on purpose doing it to Harrison, it makes not sense at all.

The Steelers have a greater chance of finding a Unicorn, or a Sasquatch, or the Loch Ness Monster than they do in finding another great 3-4 OLB.

They believe the other guys are better...hmmm

Harrison will get 20 snaps our first playoff game.

They’ll work him in more in the second half of the season. They're giving him the first hlf off.


Then why bother dressing him?

JH is 40.

I think some of you may be overestimating his impact at this point.

Watch Chickillo playing the run vs Chicago. Seriously. 40 or not. Even in his limited preseason snaps I know all I need to know.

I actually think the snaps are going to Chickillo so they can see what they really have (and Porter REALLY liked Chickillo).

That's no excuse and no explanation for why Harrison didn't play against CHI when Chickillo was struggling. Especially when you realize guys were gassed at the end of the game in which Harrison had 0 snaps. Knowing Tomlin, he didn't even realize Harrison didn't get in.

Harrison had the 2nd highest pressures per snap in the entire NFL last year.

The fucked-up retarded decision to play Chikillo over JH is the reason we lost in Chicago.

James has got maybe 8 games left in that body- want to waste it on what is basically the warm-up part of our season? Last year the Dude spent over 300k just so he could get his body right to play last year. If we need Silverback to come in and save the season- then we have bigger problems. James is fine, the decision is the right one, and by week 10 we will all be asking (foolishly) if James can play another year- er half a year
