Deebo had a great run. No doubt he was a great Steeler....But...
It's not the Steelers fault that he was so friggin stubborn with pride, and frankly, over-valued himself at age 35. The Bengals are not and never will be the STEELERS!!!
He can say its great there, and all that for the camera, but deep down, he's got to be hating life. Bengals have the ugliest uniforms, and havent won squat in years. Bengals
have a monster schedule, and will be very interesting how they start the season...
I watched the Facons v Bengals, and I know its preseason, but Deebo looked slow, and out of place. What I'm looking forward to, is Decastro blocking him when we run the
stretch-play to his side.
That is gonna be a collision of a huge magnitude!!! Go get him David!!
The down-fall for the Bungals is Dalton. I just dont see this guy getting them thru a deep playoff run...let alone a Ring.
What seems to be a bummer, watching "our" player play for a division rival, will soon change to elation when Jarvis Jones starts balling out like
I know he will. We got a steal in the draft, and I can't believe 16 other teams passed on him!!!
Hey James, after this year is over, I won't mind if you retire a STEELER!!! Trust me, I understand how fast you"ll want to trade that Kitty-Kat jersey
in...for Back and Gold!!!
JH looks great standing or sitting. He's still a rock and has that perpetual scowl. If he weren't showing the age with the Steelers the last year or two, I would be bummed. The Bengals seems to have a nice group of talented players. If James can infuse some attitude, they could be dangerous. I don't wish ill for him, but I hope he doesn't make any miraculous recoveries and have a good season.
Bengals' James Harrison rips into HBO's 'Hard Knocks'

The premiere of this season's "Hard Knocks" was a reminder of the show's range and power, but no one stood out quite like Cincinnati Bengals linebacker James Harrison. It was awesome to get a peek behind the curtain at one of the league's surliest players.
I wouldn't complain at all if the entire show was built around Harrison, precisely because he seems to genuinely hate being on television so much.
"I don't feel they deserve to be here," Harrison told Joe Reedy of The Cincinnati Enquirer on Monday. "They did nothing to be here, other than want to be here. They didn't put no blood, sweat and tears into none of this. All these men in here, they did that. They (the cameras) did nothing. No one deserves to see this, to come inside of this unless you're a part of this. That's why."
Harrison is wrong on this point. NFL Films founder Ed Sabol, his son Steve and countless others put in the work for decades to help promote the sport to where it is today. But Harrison's reluctance to embrace the show partly is why he's such a compelling figure. At one point during last week's episode, Harrison jumped in an unsuspecting car to avoid the cameras. Harrison isn't sure if the driver even knew who he was.
"It's kind of like this: Everybody knows I'm getting into the car with him. There's a bunch of cameras watching me get in the car. It wouldn't be too smart," Harrison said. "They've got his license plate and everything else. And plus, I think I can kind of handle myself. He's driving and I'm behind him, so I think I'd be all right."
It's unclear what that all means, but I read it as a warning to Cincinnati motorists this month: Be ready.
LOL at the above story. Ill miss Silverback. One of my favorite Steelers of all time. A note to all Cincy fans. If James Harrison randomly gets it your car, its probably best that you take the man where he wants to go.
