After the dust of Super Bowl 52 has settled, where does James Harrison stand with Steelers fans?

After the dust of Super Bowl 52 has settled, where does James Harrison stand with Steelers fans?

With the Super Bowl now in the rear view mirror, it’s time to re-visit how Steelers fans feel about James Harrison. In the lead-up to Super Bowl 52, James Harrison was a hot-button topic with Pittsburgh Steelers fans. Some had no problem with him leaving. After all the Steelers didn’t use him. But others saw his departure as a sign of treason, never to be forgiven. But a lot has happened since then. Yes, Harrison played in the Super Bowl for the Patriots, but New England lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. This shouldn’t matter in how the black-and-gold fan base views Harrison, but it...
The prospect of the Patriots tying the Steelers with 6 Super Bowl titles shouldn’t bother fans

The prospect of the Patriots tying the Steelers with 6 Super Bowl titles shouldn’t bother fans

The prospect of the Patriots tying the Steelers with six Super Bowl titles doesn't concern me as much as I thought it would. Judging by the reaction to my James Harrison playing with the Patriots article, I know what you might say: "Oh, 'I'm not sweating it, but I'm going to write an article about how I'm not sweating it.'" Or, "Gee, must be a slow news day, so let's post some click-bait." Anymore? I think I got all the snark covered. Anyway, unlike my disconnected feeling on Harrison joining the Patriots after getting cut by the Steelers and then ascending to the cusp of his third...
I got 99 problems, but James Harrison playing in the Super Bowl ain't one

I got 99 problems, but James Harrison playing in the Super Bowl ain't one

You might care about James Harrison playing in the Super Bowl with the Patriots and possibly earning a third ring. But that ain't my problem. I'm not going to lie—the Steelers quick elimination from the playoffs this season has brought me down to Earth a bit regarding the team, and my life in general. It's amazing what you start noticing when the music stops, and your favorite football team is no longer dancing to that Super Bowl beat. I knew I had some problems, but man, a February electric bill that's more than double what it was a month ago? And the 27-pounds I lost, why has it...
James Harrison expands on his departure from Pittsburgh, and his Steelers legacy

James Harrison expands on his departure from Pittsburgh, and his Steelers legacy

The Pittsburgh Steelers all-time sack leader opened up more about his departure from Pittsburgh while preparing for Super Bowl 52. Divorces are ugly in any relationship, and that includes ones within the National Football League. If you don’t believe me, just ask any Pittsburgh Steelers fan what they think of the organization’s all-time sack leader, James Harrison, being released, and then going to the New England Patriots where he will be playing in Super Bowl 52. The reactions will vary depending on who you speak with. Everything from, “He is dead to me.” to, “Good for him...the...
James Harrison says Super Bowl 52 isn’t his last game, wants to continue career

James Harrison says Super Bowl 52 isn’t his last game, wants to continue career

The Pittsburgh Steelers legend says Super Bowl 52 won’t be his last game. When James Harrison left the Pittsburgh Steelers and jettisoned to the New England Patriots, it stuck a knife into the heart of the Pittsburgh fan base. Watching Harrison advance to the Super Bowl was also difficult, but most probably thought Harrison was going to walk off into the sunset after the Super Bowl. Think again. According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, Harrison wants to continue his career, even after the Super Bowl. “I maybe want to play a year at 40, maybe 41,” he said. “But at some point in time, I’m...
James Harrison playing in a Super Bowl for the Patriots further twists the knife in Steelers fans’ backs

James Harrison playing in a Super Bowl for the Patriots further twists the knife in Steelers fans’ backs

The Pittsburgh Steelers let James Harrison walk, and now he’s walking directly to Super Bowl 52 with the New England Patriots. James Harrison wanted to play, and he also wanted another shot at a Super Bowl before he hangs up the cleats for good. He’s getting the chance to do both of these things, but not for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rather, for the hated New England Patriots. For the time being, let’s leave out how Harrison left. The fuming teammates letting their anger and frustration boil over for everyone to read and hear. Instead, let’s focus solely on Harrison leaving. For...
The greatest Steelers’ Super Bowl moment belongs to Santonio Holmes, not James Harrison

The greatest Steelers’ Super Bowl moment belongs to Santonio Holmes, not James Harrison

There have been many memorable moments for the Black-and-gold in Super Bowls, but my favorite still belongs to Santonio Holmes. It might seem like picking your favorite child, but when asked to write a ‘Best Super Bowl Moment’ article, the first criteria I gave myself were Super Bowls which I witnessed. As a man who will turn 35 next month, I’ve seen the Steelers play in four Super Bowls, winning two of them. Believe it or not, I have more plays to choose from than most NFL fan bases. But I decided to mentally run through the list of plays in my head, trying to rank them all in some...
