Rodney Harrison Is Done Playing With Balls...

Yes, folks. Everything you've heard is true.

Rodney Harrison is finally retiring after 15 seasons of fun and moral turpitude with the San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots.

In honor of this momentous occasion, I'd say he was one of the best Safeties to ever play the game. That is, if he wasn't a big time dickhead and a steroid user.

I hear he holds some records like most sacks by a defensive back in NFL history.

I guess they conveniently forgot to mention that he also holds the record for biggest cock sucker.

Go figure.

All I've got to say about this clown is that it's awfully interesting that after being suspended for four games in '07 for steroid use, he only made it seven weeks through the '08 season before suffering a season ending muscle tear. And now, he's retiring.

But hey, I'm just being a dick.

The fact is, he missed just over half of the games over the last four seasons due to injury (and suspension).

Plus, I mean, at 36 years old, who really wants to destroy their body week in and week out when you've already got millions of dollars in the bank?

Besides Brett Favre, of course.

So anyways, good riddance.

Enjoy retirement.

10 bucks says you get fined at some point this season anyway.

Hard to keep a good man down, you know?

In other news, Ben apparently limped off the practice field today.

Before we all shit ourselves in fear, let's remember who we're talking about here...

And also that it's June 3rd.

Not to downplay this development, but we don't know anything about the extent. For all we know he could've stepped on one of the nails Silverback chews during practice.

Let's just hope for the best.

I'll update you when I know more...or you can watch NFL Network at 7PM if you're one of the lucky ones who can actually get NFL Network.

In conclusion, eff Cablevision.

Thank you, and good afternoon!

UPDATE: It sounds like Ben is fine and there will be no further updates. So you can all back off the ledge now.

After a Superbowl winning effort in the 2008 season, we prepare to see what is left after the offseason took hold. This is the time of year where teams get rebuilt, made, or broke, depending on who's contracts are up and/or who goes for the big money after a great season. Surprisingly, the Steelers are in excellent shape, and should be just as good or better than last year.

Rodney Harrison is also one of the dirtiest players of all time. 'Roid rage?

Noah said...

I second Grumpy's notion.

Despite how much I didn't like him, he was a force in his prime. I'd have him up there with Dawkins who is also on the decline.

Go Pens!

And yes, I do get the NFL Network...

Grumpy said...

Oh yeah, I get the NFL network too. Must suck being you.

Well, that goes without saying...

Cablevision needs to get their shit together. If Comcast can get NFL Network, there's no reason why Cablevision shouldn't be able to...let's be honest.
