He had 3.5 sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, and A LOT of big hits. I'm trying to find a link to the one on Ed Reed. I know that he's had some great games before the Ravens one. Why wasn't he starting before Porter left?

Players develop in time, I guess. I think he has been known as a solid player for a little while now but I imagine during Porter's final season where he struggled they gave him the benefit of the doubt as most coaches do for vets.

Answer.

He is a system player just like any other Steelers linebacker.

And for the person who said he is just a system player, he flat out bull-rushed Jonathon Ogden all night (and beat him 1 on 1 all the time)...That is not scheme. That is techinique and hard work...and plus there is no such thing as 'Scheme players', that just means that the whole Defence is doing their job...and players are making the plays they should be, i.e a team effort.

Crowded LB with starting talent, there just wasnt a spot for him until Porter left. This is still the case we have Timmons and Woodley on the bench. Bottom line is LB is our strongest position.

I believe it was 3 forced fumbles, but who's counting, right?

If you had talked to the Knowledgeable Steeler fans last year, you would've heard them calling for him.

He's more in the mold of Lloyd.. Undersized, but quick and tenacious.

Porter, Haggans and Gildon were "scheme" Players, I'd put Harrison in with Lloyd and Greene moreso.

He's more of a violent type that's undersized. He's beaten Jason Peters, Jon Ogden and He had a couple TFL's against Cincy's LT as well.

He's playing great ball and I hope this is his breakout.. 2 more performances like this he's DPOTY.

The thing with Harrison though, He's not fast enough to cover TE's. He's quick enough for zone, but not man coverage. Thats where Porter had him beat.

Though he's a much better run stopper and pass rusher.

9 Tackles, 3.5 sacks, 2FF, 3TFLS(the one who took McGahee down at the 1), 1 FR, 1 INT.

yes they are. Porter was one of their more sensible decisions.

I remember I was blasted by the Dolphins' fans when I criticized that awful signing. I still cannot believe they gave him a massive contract.

I knew he was good when I think last year he got a pick and just Sam McGuffie'd a guy.

many steelers fans tried to say he would be good but everyone was to busy saying how much our defense would suffer without porters leadership.

I'll post the links of why steelers fans love Harrison eventually. He always seems to turn it up in division games.

Joey Porter was only able to get sacks in one of two situations:

1. He was playing an inferior OT
2. He came completely clean and merely had to avoid a RB chip.

Last year's opener was a prime example. He had two sacks and an interception, but he really didn't play well. He came completely unblocked and sacked Culpepper (who couldn't get rid of the ball last year) and then Culpepper threw him the ball as if he was the primary receiver.
