Exclamation James Harrison: Iíve lowered my target, now I hit guys in the knees

Sounds a helluva lot worse than what the Saints are accused of!!!

Any player that has his career ended by one of these hits should sure Kommisar Goodell,and not the league!

************************************************** *******

Unfortunately for the Steelersí opponents, that message isnít necessarily one thatís going to make them any safer. Harrison said on Mike and Mike in the Morning that now instead of trying to hit players in the head, heíll hit them in the knees.

ďIíve really lowered my target area to where itís down around the knees,Ē Harrison said. ďSituations come along where you could tackle the guy high. I donít do that anymore. I tackle the guy low.Ē

Harrison said, however, that he doesnít think that makes life any easier on opposing players. Harrison referenced his hit to the knee of Broncos receiver Eric Decker in last yearís playoffs, a hit that caused Decker to suffer a sprained MCL, as the kind of hit he makes now that he wouldnít have made before he was suspended last season ó and a hit that Harrison doesnít think makes the game any safer.

ďI could have tackled him high, but if I had hit him high, I probably would have gotten a helmet-to-helmet or something and gotten fined,Ē Harrison said. ďSo I hit him low and strained his MCL. . . . Theyíre saying itís a life-threatening injury to hit a guy in the head and he gets a concussion and so on and so forth, but I think a life-threatening injury is to go low on a guy and blow out his ACL or whatever, and heís not able to come back the way he was before. Now he canít make a living, he canít feed his family, he canít do what he does. Thatís life-threatening to me

He'll be in jail 2 years after he leaves the NFL, likely sooner.
