James Harrison is not showing remorse in a post game interview published by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. I will let you read it and decide for yourself. However here are some quotes from him;
“I thought Cribbs was asleep,” said Harrison, the 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. “A hit like that geeks you up — it geeks everybody up — especially when you find out that the guy is not really hurt — he’s just sleeping. He’s knocked out, but he’s going to be OK. The other guy, I didn’t hit that hard, to be honest with you. When you get a guy on the ground, it’s a perfect tackle.”
Well James, you don’t just go to sleep playing football unless you sustain a brain injury. Now Harrison speaks on the Massaquoi hit:
“If I get fined for that, it’s going to be a travesty,” Harrison said. “There’s no way I could be fined for that. It was a good, clean, legit hit. He came across, I put my head across the bow. I could have put a lot more into that hit than I did.”
I am going to say he will be fined 20 large or more. And in the NFL, you do have to have the warrior mentality, but one should know that lowering the head to use the helmet as a weapon is not only dangerous to the other guy, buy yourself.
