You have probably heard alot of things about James Harrison and the way he plays. One thing you probably did not know is that James Harrison does not bite his tongue for anybody. In the August issue of Men’s Journal, which hits newsstands Friday, Harrison gave a tongue lashing to the NFL and a lot of the players in the League. Had the Steelers beaten the Packers in the Super Bowl back in February, Harrison would have told Goodell on the podium “Why don’t you quit and do something else, like start your own league in flag football?'” Not stopping there, Harrison had this to say about his meeting in November with Goodell, NFL executive vice president Ray Anderson and the league’s director of football operations, Merton Hanks “They take 10 plays out of 4,000 snaps and want to know my thought process on each. What I tried to explain to Goodell, but he was too stupid to understand, is that dudes crouch when you go to hit them. With Massaquoi, my target area was his waist and chest, but he lowered himself at the last possible second and I couldn’t adjust to his adjustment. But Goodell, who’s a devil, ain’t hearing that. Where’s the damn discretion, the common sense?”
He also had some choice words for Clay Matthews, stating “Clay Matthews, who’s all hype — he had a couple of three-sack games in the first four weeks and was never heard from again — I’m quite sure I saw him put his helmet on Michael Vick and never paid a dime. But if I hit Peyton Manning or Tom Brady high, they’d have fucked around and kicked me out of the league.” He also took time to vent about his hate for the Patriots saying “I hate those motherfuckers, especially those two clowns [Rodney Harrison and Teddy Bruschi] who talked about me after the fines. … Sayin’ I’m dirty — shit, Harrison was the dirtiest player ever, a steroid cheater who was known by the whole world to be a headhunter and late hitter. And Bruschi’s an idiot, straight-up simple. I’d like to meet them both in a dark alley.” I would really hate to get on his bad side, but i respect him for speaking his mind. I just hope he sticks to his words once the heat gets turned up.
