The Pittsburgh Steelers are off to a 1-2 start and already find themselves a game behind the Baltimore Ravens who play Thursday night and the Bengals who play this weekend. The Pittsburgh Steelers have to be misting the play of their big line backer James Harrison. The good news is Harrison was able to practice for the first time Tuesday and it seemed to go well. Since getting a procedure done to his knee in mid-August this was the first full practice Harrison has participated in. I’ll go out on a line here and say if James Harrison was on the field this season, the Steelers may not be 1-2 now.
James Harrison is a guy that makes huge plays with his huge hits. There is no telling how many fumbles James Harrison would have caused if he was out there with his team. Harrison has the ability to change the outcome of a game with one play. The Steelers will be glad to have him back. There could be a possibility of seeing Harrison when the Steelers take on the Eagles in week five. This could be bad news for Vick who has lived on the edge all season. Harrison could be the guy that finally knocks him off. Pittsburgh is a better defensive team with James Harrison on the field.
Tell us if you think James Harrison still has what it takes to make a difference in the outcome of a game. Just leave your comments below…
