    Steelers’ Ryan Clark hopes fans cheer Bengals’ James Harrison

    On Sunday night, Cincinnati Bengals‘ linebacker James Harrison will return to Pittsburgh for the first time since joining the Bengals before the season.

    Harrison started his career with the Steelers in 2004 and was a fixture on their defense for nine seasons before the team chose to part ways with Harrison following the 2012 season.

    Steelers’ safety Ryan Clark believes Harrison should get a warm reception.

    “I hope they show him the respect he deserves for what he did for this team, this organization for the way he approached football, the passion he played with, the passion he worked with in this building,” Clark told Scott Brown of ESPN.com. “Was he the nicest guy ever? Not really. But what he was paid for he did exceptionally hard and exceptionally well and I hope the fans here recognize that and understand that him leaving was just business, nothing was personal.”

    Miami Dolphins‘ wide receiver Mike Wallace returned to Pittsburgh after leaving the Steelers for the Dolphins in free agency during the offseason last week and was booed by Steelers’ fans.

    I believe the Wallace and Harrison situations were totally different. No reason to boo Silverback.

    sure about that?... Wallace left because he didn't get the offer he thought he was worth. Harrison left because he didn't get the offer he thought he was worth....

    Harrison gave everything to the team and was a leader. Wallace was a distraction and complained a lot.

    Harrison was one of the modern great Steelers. Wallace could have been I suppose...

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    Yup, he was Peezy-Greg Lloyd-Jack Lambert. You don't boo that ilk.

    When did Wallace ever complain? The Steelers got his production on the relative cheap for years. Can't blame the guy for getting paid.

    Yes, Harrison was a leader. Heck, he's my favorite Steeler all-time. Hopefully the the fans do treat him right. Even if they do, it doesn't make booing Wallace any less douchey.

    If you can't see the difference between Harrison and Flipper Wallace, your Steeler Nation license should be revoked.
