James Harrison Annoyed At Steelers' Poor Performance Against Texans

The Steelers' James Harrison has never been known for pulling punches - verbally, that is, off the field - and he has some choice words to describe his teammates' play against the Houston Texans on Sunday.

"Every man needs to do his job, take care of his responsibilities," Harrison fumed after the Houston Texans gouged his defense Sunday. "It's not the scheme, it's not other BS; it's each man doing his job, and, right now, every man is not doing his job, period."

How's that?

"People are getting beat. You have to come out there and work the man who's in front of you, and we're not doing that right now."

Harrison didn't say who he was talking about, but it's easy to understand his frustration. He also pointed out that he hadn't "seen it like this," except maybe in a random game or two in the preseason. The Steelers were thoroughly beaten, particularly in the first half. This isn't the brand of Steelers football we're used to seeing, and it's not surprising to see Harrison express his dissatisfaction. In fact, it might be a good thing. Let it out, James.
