Harrison thinks he was victim of cheap-shot

J. Harrison feels like he was cheap-shooted during last Sunday's game with Baltimore (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

For once, Steelers LB James Harrison is playing the victim card, and he might have a point.

As the Pittsburgh Post Gazette writes, his teammates think Ravens G Chris Chester – a guy not known as an especially dirty player – tried to cheap-shot Harrison during last Sunday’s Baltimore win.

During an extra point attempt, the Ravens were flagged for a false start, but Chester fired on Harrison anyway, leading to both teams pushing and shoving each other (Harrison wisely backed away from the tussle).

From the story:

"Of course it was deliberate," Harrison said today in the Steelers locker room. "There's no way that happens on an extra point because [offensive linemen] don't shoot out. It's obvious it was blatant. It was on purpose."

Asked if it was a cheap shot, Harrison said, "Yeah it's cheap, but when it comes down to it, it's only a 5-yard penalty, they move back to the 7 and re-kick. It's not going to hurt them."

"It was a dirty play," said inside linebacker James Farrior.


Chester Chester might have been upset, because Harrison ran him over earlier in the game. though it sounds like the Steelers think this was planned-out on the Ravens side. After the near brouhaha, Harrison said he later ran over Chester again.

One interesting part of this equation is the fundamentals involved. Offensive lineman are taught not to fire out on extra points and field goals, because it leaves gaps in the blocking wall that could allow a defender to sneak through and block the kick.

So, maybe Chester forgot that he wasn’t supposed to do that. Or he wanted to teach Harrison a lesson. Or he’s got a nasty twitch.

Harrison thinks he was victim of cheap-shot

The Ravens guard did appear to lunge for Harrison but the silverback has got to shut his mouth and just play. Plenty of folks have his back and speak for him pointing out the inconsistencies. Let Steeler fans whine, let Goodel fine, but the black and gold just has to knock their opponents supine.

Yeah - he was after something.  Something not right about that.

I think I believe him, even though I'm sure a lot of other people don't.  I wouldn't be surprised if nothing happened to Chester.

The action speaks for itself, Chester fired forward which even in high schools, a lineman doesn't do on a PAT or FG, and he went low at Harrison's knees.
