Good!! Actually, I think this guy should have had more than one game suspension. He's a dirty player with no regards to other players. Yes, this is football, but he purposely goes to the extreme. There are many many players out there that could fill his shoes without being an ass. Besides, he not all that great..........

I would respectfully disagree. I think in the recent course of history, we as a (football)society have changed the definition of 'dirty player.'

Harrison has not won many backers with his ill-timed quotes, but all of his (hits) fines, were during the course of a football play. The linebacker has not hit anyone out of bounds, kicked or stomped on someone, taken it out on a ref, et cetera.

Should he have gone a tad lower on Colt McCoy, most likely. But when Harrison engaged, McCoy was technically a runner.
