    Exactly! Regardless of how good he is or isn't he isn't worth the BS. Hopefully all of these prima-dona's who think they can hold the NFL and it's fans hostage for their personal ***** sessions will all go away.

    we can’t get into that on here, i’ve already gotten a yellow card but i just think by looking at his stats and the words Rivera spoke about him, he could
    be a talent we could use. he is certainly better than Sean Davis. we need to use the last years with Ben the best way we can and not let off field distractions cloud our judgement.

    the prima-dona’s are the league, like it or not. there are other sports you can root for like hockey, swimming or diving. they have no controversy.

    Is the cancer you bring in the locker room worth the cost to the cap (which we do not have). No to both.

    I get it that he could get better, but this isn’t a developmental league. when he signed a first round contract, there are expectations. A first round contract is a serious cap hit and a team cannot win trying to allow for baby steps. I know that’s ruff but this isn’t HS or College. He advertised himself as a first round talent through his agent, you gotta back it up.

    you have no idea if he is a cancer, you are speculating about things you do not know. Coach Rivera, who is well respected, has a different opinion of the kid. I’m going to speculate that he knows more than you.

    Big Al went against the rest of the locker room Monday night because he had a certain set of values he wanted to live by and wanted to display that, does that make him a cancer??? I don’t think so, i respect him for doing it. You can’t respect a guy for going against the grain just because you agree with him and not the other guy because he is saying things you don’t like. Everyone has the right to express themselves.

    The Steelers DO allow for baby steps, & it payed off with Stud Dupree (a little late). & the rookie caps are fixed, no?

    The advertising bit is a reach but I applaud the effort.

    Tomlin is responsible for 1st round status not Terrell.

    not all first rounders make the same research the QB at Arizona. Bud was slow to develope because he was forced to play on the opposite side to allow Harrison to keep his position. since Watt arrived and they switched, it has been like night and day.

    More like they benched Harrison to allow for baby steps. Why do you think Deebo was so upset? He knew (along with everyone else) that he could outperform Dupree every year they both were there.

    Harrison was at the end and everyone knew it. he had to be allowed to skip practice and do his own thing so he could keep up. Basically he couldn’t run anymore, he still has all the strength anyone could need. you saw what happen when he went to NE, they used him sparingly and let him go. he was great but it always has to come to an end. it’s just sad the way he went out. AB went out sadly in a different way and it’s a shame because they were both beloved here.

    Agreed. He was still a step above Dupree at the time.

    harrison was mainly a weakness in pass coverage at the end. he got so big and muscular it seemed to slow him down to the point he couldn’t cover tight ends.

    I hope I never post something foolish and then try to defend it with 22 other posts (and counting). But hey, I’ve done more embarrassing things.
