Harrison Sounds Off

Read the complete article of James Harrison sounding off against .. well, everyone.

Calling Roger Goodell the devil... check

Calling out teammates... check

Calling out the New England Cheatriots... check

Calling out Brian Cushing... check

Calling out league policy... check

Harrison should have a "shut up" clause in his contract for real.  The guy is a great player and he's even better at channeling his anger to the playing field.  But come on now Harrison, just stay away from the microphone.  Your not a good talker and you can easily be taken out of context.  The result of this is now the Pittsburgh Steelers will have a greater target on their back this year.

Roethlisberger Getting Married: Updated


The following has been provided by ESPN Pittsburgh. Take it for what it's worth:

Is this Bens Fiance?

We have a very good source that tells us that this is Ashley Harlan from New Castle PA. The media circus started when the Executive Editor of Golf World, Ron Sirak, tweeted today that “word that Roethlisberger is going to tie the knot in July is great news. That and charity work show he's a changed guy."

Reports of the engagement are still evolving/changing, so check back here as we will be updating you with the latest news about this situation.

If it is true, we could not be happier for Ben.

Here is his official official statment on the matter: “You guys know that I’m not going to talk about my personal life. My own singular focus right now is on the playoffs and trying to get to the Super Bowl.”

Steelers clinch 2nd seed

The Steelers clinched the division 2nd seed in the AFC with a 41-9 victory over the division rival Cleveland Brown.  The Steelers dominated in every phase even after the Steelers took out their starters beginning the 2nd half.

Notable Game Notes:

  • Troy Polamalu played for the first time in 2 games and intercepted a Coly McCoy pass on the third play of the game.
  • Bruce Arians called a good game with several short passes to take the pressure off Big Ben and the struggling offensive line
  • Eric Mangini was fired after the game.  There is rumors that Mike Holmgren, the Browns GM who had a say in the firing, might take over for head coach.
  • Big Ben and the o-line quite possibly had their best game of the game
  • Jonathan Dywer looked good in limited playing time

Ravens fined for illegal hits

Jameel Mclain was fined $40,000 for his illegal hit on Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller.  Mclain was not penalized on the play but league officials contacted NBC to inform the announcers that the play should have been penalized.

Shop Heath Miller Jerseys

Haloti Ngata was fined $15000 for his hit on Ben Roethlisberger.  Obviously unintentional, Ngata's hand sneaked into Roethlisberger's face mask essentially breaking Big Ben's nose.  Roethlisberger never missed any snaps the rest of the game.

Roethlisberger to Undergo Surgery for Broken Nose

According to reports, Ben Roethlisberger will undergo surgery to fix his broken nose that he suffered in the first quarter of a hard earned 13-10 victory over the division rival Baltimore Ravens.

During the game, the Pittsburgh Steelers sideline reported Big Ben did NOT break his nose but all reviewers including the announcers could see Roethlisberger’s nose and it most certainly looked broken regardless of the sideline reports.  After the game, Roethlisberger confirmed that he had a broken nose.

Roethlisberger broke his nose on Pittsburgh's first series when Baltimore’s Haloti Ngata fist hit Roethlisberger in the face.  Ngata was not penalized on the play which again begs the question on whether the league has targeted the Pittsburgh Steelers and don’t apply the same standard to other teams.

"Someone just came through and a hand got through my facemask," Roethlisberger said after the game. "The next thing you know, I feel blood running down my face."

He spent much of the following series trying to stop the bleeding, and his jersey was soon spattered with blood.

Roethlisberger, already playing with a broken bone in his foot, still went 22 for 38 for 253 yards.

Steelers Disagree with Seymour Fine

Several of the Pittsburgh Steelers had some words to say about the $25,000 fine for the punch that connected flush with Roethlisberger's jaw.  Hines Ward and Randle El told reports that players would be fined more and possible suspended if such a hit occurred on Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. It's true that the National Football League protects the 2 golden buys and the punishment for Richard Seymour would have been much steeper.

Steelers receiver Antwaan Randle El told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Seymour's punishment would have been stiffer if he had hitTom Brady or Peyton Manning.

"It would have been a little more," Randle El told the Post-Gazette. "Or if one of our guys did it, there would have been more."

Fellow wideout Hines Ward went further. The Post-Gazette reported Thursday that Ward said on his local radio show Tuesday that Seymour would have been suspended if he had struck either Brady or Manning.

Ward would not comment on his radio show comments when asked by the Post-Gazette but told the paper that the NFL isn't "being consistent with all the fines and the calls."

Roethlisberger, asked if the ruling would have been different if his name were different, was frank in his response.

"We all know the answer to that one. Easy," Roethlisberger told the Post-Gazette.
