Harrison's 100-yard dash will go down in Super Bowl history

Full story: Orlando Sentinel

James Harrison gave that play everything he had, leaping over defenders, cutting to miss would-be tacklers and running as fast as he could from one end zone to the other.

Yes, it was a great run. Too bad he didn't display great character and sportsmanship throughout the game. Shame on the press for ignoring the fact that he used an opponent who was on the ground as a punching bag. The man's a thug, intereception return and player of the year or not. He should have been ejected and I hope he's heavily fined. He belies the integrity of the Steeler organization.

You’re right he is a peace of shit. He will follow in the same footsteps as OJ Simpson
There is no reason for the attitude he showed on the field.

Supposedly he got bagged on the play where he clotheslined the other player, although I didn't see it on replays.

While there is no excuse for that kind of behavior, there are 2 sides to every story and my actual first thought was, "What did Francisco say/do for Harrison to unleash the wrath on him like that?"

I'd kind of like to know that, too. I've got the game taped, so I'll see if I can pick anything up. The way that guy's been held all season (usually by the facemask), I'm not surprised he has an anger management problem. But peoplshould calm the frig down with the OJ comparisons--if every player who'd ever been in a fight in a game turned into OJ, we'd have an army of giant mass murderers threatening the country.

It was the greatest defensive play I've ever seen in a SB. For an LB to cover that much ground, with that many people trying to tackle him...

I was amazed at how big & beefy of a guy he is, to have taken that field by storm, & no one was stopping him. I did think he was going to trip at one point. His action later was pretty crappy, & I don't support that. I've seen many a football player over the years do shit like that, & worse, & actually keep on doing repeat stunts like that in their career. He did that, but it doesn't make him a thug. C'mon!
I would like to see what happened for him to act that way. It kind of soured that beautiful play he made into the end zone.

hmm...I don't get the comparison, OJ with two homicides (allegedly) and Harrison with a few punches on a special teams play. First of all this is football and things happen, and emotions run high. Should he have punched Francisco? No, I wouldn't condone it, nor would I want it to cost my team 15 yards. Having said that, on the previous special teams play, he got blindsided on a return by Francisco.

Again...he shouldn't have been punching the guy once he had already got him to the ground. But to compare him to OJ is utterly irresponsible.

Plus...anyone knows, when you go into the jungle, and see a family of gorillas, you never mess with the one known as "Silverback."

GO HARRISON & GO STEELERS!!!

OJ was actually a pretty mild-mannered guy on the field, which is another reason the comparison is retarded. On-field passion and off-the-field psychosis rarely have much to do with each other (unless it's Greg Lloyd we're talking about).

I will give you this--it was a really stupid move, and it could have cost his team dearly. I can't imagine why he did it. Fransisco claims he did nothing to provoke it, and he doesn't seem to be one of the agitators on the team. As I said before, though, they start holding Harrison when he steps out of the tunnel, and maybe it was a season's worth of frustration building in him. Doesn't excuse it, though.

Do you still say he is mild-mannered? come on now.

I can answer that question for you. Apparently the televised broadcast didn't show it, but when Francisco was going down for that low block, he delivered the stun punch of death right to Harrison's man-parts. At first I thought I was seeing things, but a whole bunch of other people I talked to thought they saw the same thing. So it was either a mass hallucination, or he got socked in the balls.
You mess with the bull you get the horns!
Damn straight. There's rules about these things. You don't mess with a man's family, you don't mess with his money, and you don't punch him in the nuts when you think the ref isn't looking. Francisco was lucky to get off with just a couple of shoves and punches.

Looks to me like you're the sorry piece of sh!t there douchey. just another masshole from assachusetts who hates life due to the dismal failure of the pattycake's and their marquee QB Tom "hop-a-long" Brady. Why not go kick the dog dude, don't take your anger out online against the best defensive player in the NFL!

LET'S GO BLACK AND GOLD!!!!

The cards are lucky they didn't have any players carted off the field IMO. You play the Steelers on
Sunday and you are limping on Monday! Black and Gold rules the NFL with a sledge hammer D. Can you say REPEAT??? Let's go for 7!!!!

Geez! Friggin' media showing that clip just to make Harrison out to look bad! That definitely answers the question, as well as why he wasn't thrown out - somebody down there must've seen the whole thing. Still, there are many who would rather believe that Harrison is a beast and that the refs were biased, blah blah blah.

Thanks for shedding the light on that.

My point exactly. You can't predict what a player will become based on his on-the-field behavior.
