Wow. Amazing take. What I saw was that the D began to play well about the time that Harrison rounded into form. The last quarter of the season, he was making plays. And a "vet min" player? You will soon see that NFL teams don't agree. Now, as to whether the Steelers should keep him, different story. We are in cap hell and face some tough decisions...and unless James is willing to play for a drastic pay reduction, I think we will (and should) cut him loose. We almost have to, in order to have any chance of building a competitive team going forward.
