First Call: James Harrison has noteworthy extra to reveal about Steelers previous ‘the envelope’ – TribLIVE

In Friday’s “First Call” we peek at everything James Harrison acknowledged in that interview with Willie Colon in addition to the inferred price for his hit on Mohamed Massaquoi.

Also, that fable isn’t sitting successfully with Saints coach Sean Payton. Faux crowd noise on NFL announces? And but another “Lemieux” has No. 66.


That ain’t all

Inclined Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison made headlines by implying Mike Tomlin paid no longer decrease than some of his ravishing for his execrable hit on conventional Cleveland Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi.

He didn’t enlighten that directly. Nonetheless that’s what he was attempting to get us to mediate. The Steelers lisp it, by the fashion. So does Harrison’s agent.

Nonetheless that was gorgeous scratching the skin by blueprint of the beefy interview with conventional teammate Willie Colon on the “Going Deep” podcast.

Whereas that was the fable that purchased numerous the distinction, Harrison had loads extra to reveal in the 90-minute Q&A. As transcribed by PennLive, listed below are any other things he discussed:

Kevin Colbert sticking up for him for the length of his discipline hearing with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell: “They ship me with Kevin Colbert, honest? What I ain’t know was Kevin Colbert was an murderer, OK? He don’t like them both.”

How he and Mike Tomlin came to loggerheads over his playing time in 2017: “His phrases had been ‘I’d be a dumbass to launch you and regarded as the kind of dudes get trouble and creep down.’ I acknowledged, All honest, that’s what you wanna originate, frigid. Effectively I’ma teach you this honest here honest now. I acknowledged ‘If I ain’t playing, I ain’t staying.’ So if the game came, and he didn’t own me dressed to play, I left. Yes, I went dwelling.”

Almost battling conventional offensive coordinator Bruce Arians after a minor bump into Ben Roethlisberger at note: “He goes ‘You tiring (expletive).’ I acknowledged ‘Man, who the (expletive) you suspect you’re talking to, man? I’ll whoop your (expletive), enlighten but another (expletive) be aware.’”

Beyond that, Harrison explores why he refused visits to the White House after Gargantuan Bowls, how noteworthy the crew partied while Bill Cowher was the coach and the procedure in which he appears to be like encourage at his days in Pittsburgh.

Click on the PennLive hyperlink and likewise you’ll get the total … uh … transcription.

Effectively, it’s shut. I mediate.


Pouty Payton

Since we brought up the alleged Mike Tomlin repay of James Harrison …

… successfully, anyone brought it as much as Sean Payton.

The New Orleans Saints coach purchased suspended for a one year thanks to his crew’s execrable BountyGate reveal of affairs.

When it involves issues of gamers getting paid for noteworthy hits, you presumably can also mediate Payton has an acute sensitivity.

Sure sufficient. He’s purchased sensitivity. And it is acute.

I like when stuff like this happens.

So, what does Payton desire? Does he mediate that his crew purchased mistreated, so Mike Tomlin and the Steelers settle on to, additionally?

Or is he furious that the NFL may per chance per chance also retroactively overview one thing like his case once more?

On fable of, theoretically, if his Saints had been wronged by NFL investigatory maleficence, then he shouldn’t desire the Steelers to be victims of the identical wrongdoing.

If the Steelers did it, then he may per chance per chance also serene desire the league to be as probing in the direction of the Steelers as they had been in the direction of his membership. Although, that’s one thing that also appears to be like to be making Payton upset.

Correct let me know when the unbiased posts stop inviting, Sean. And teach me which side you presumably can also be on.


It had to be, honest?

Masses of folks wished the Steelers to draft Oregon offensive lineman Shane Lemieux.

Why no longer? One other Lemieux in Pittsburgh? That’d be colossal, honest?

One field. David DeCastro wears No. 66. He wasn’t going to supply that up. Particularly after Alan Faneca had it sooner than him.

No such field in New York, the put aside he was drafted by the Giants.

Gargantuan. Now let’s hope Adam Graves doesn’t serene stay in New York. Or else this kid greater be distinct that that his wrists are guarded at all conditions.


It certain is composed in here

Fox Sports actions broadcaster Joe Buck says that his network is having a peek into a fashion to artificially mix in crowd noise if fans aren’t in the stands for NFL video games.

Unfavorable notion. We all comprehend it’s false entering into. It’ll sound false when it’s going down. And it’ll sound (and peek) even worse the first time one thing fluky happens for the length of a sport.

Also, is the NFL going to permit booing of the refs when a depraved name goes against the dwelling crew?

C’mon, this goes to sound phony. It’ll be like a video sport from the 1990s.

What is that this, the WWE? It’s all pretend. We all comprehend it’s pretend. And we pretend it’s no longer pretend anyway. Is that how this goes to work?

Be proper. Here’s what we are going through. It’s truth. Let’s depict what’s in reality going down.

What’s worse, there’s even talk about of by some means streaming in fans through an app on their telephones. Apparently, they tried it for the length of a Tunisian soccer sport or one thing.
