    That is a really interesting question.

    James was one of my favorite Steelers and it was painful to see him with the Bungles. But if the tradeoff is a year or two of Harrison for Jarvis Jones, from what I've heard about Jones so far, I'll take it.

    JH leaves a great legacy, but this is 2013.

    Will we still miss him when he goes down with an injury?
    Will we still miss it when we watch the news every week to see if he will be fined or suspended for every hit?
    Will we miss seeing flags fly for hits that would go unflagged for most?
    Will we miss watching him get held to the point that he gets tackled out of the play with no flag?

    I'm guessing that at some point this season many will stop missing him. We have our memories.

    I will miss him to. But in reality, we had to move on. He was refusing to restructure his contract. And like it or not, Harrison was no longer then player he was in 2008-90, and 2010. He has gone down hill the past 2 years, and has gained alot of weight as well. Yes his experience will help Cincy, and their young LB's. And I hate that. But as is, we had to move forward.

    i'd say in the short term. It was probably better we go with someone like eifert, a WR, or a corner (Ike's age) and draft an OLB in the 2-4 rounds and see if be develops or even if worldis could show something.

    As for the long term, we'll have to wait and see

    I had to grin when he was telling the coach to F off when they were telling him not to contact A.J. Green in practice. The coach said his piece, and asked James "Do we understand each other?" then James essentially told him (in colorful Deebo language) that he plays his way and that means people get hit. He then asked the coach "Do we understand each other?" and it looked like the coach backed down. He always was avoiding the cameras at all cost like they were a nuisance to him.

    Yeah, that was a great scene - probably my favorite in the first episode.

    Not that I plan on watching any bungles games, but it will be interesting to see if he gets any more holding called against him now that he's on another team

    I thought the very same thing. Though I wont go too much out of my way to watch a Bungals game, I think the curiosity will get the best of me at least once.

    Even more so for the conspiracy theorists........when Harrison plays the Steelers, will the Steelers OL get penalized for holding against JH or will the refs not call the holding on JH?
