Dirtiest player in the NFL to join NBC analyst crew

Postby spodog » Wed Jun 03, 2009 3:57 pm

Rachel Cohen, of The Associated Press, reports retired SS Rodney Harrison and former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy have been added to NBC's pregame program as analysts.


I have to wonder if Chris Collinsworth says something that Harrison disagrees with if Harrison will charge across the studio and try and take his knees out? :-*

I found it very hard to feel sorry for this cheapshot merchant when he got hurt. Karma,....... coming to a sports field near you.

I loathe Harrison almost as much as Sapp, and that buffoon got a gig in TV land so anythings possible.

Now as far as being a TV pundit, well I disliked Herm Edwards, Irving and Keyshawn when in the NFL, but all were very good on NFL shows imo.

The best are Tom Jackson, Jaws, Dilfer and Stink

Kudos to the uberdesigner 'soty' for the sig!

I don't remember him ever trying to hit someone's knees. Someone is exaggerating. Head-shots? Yes. But there have been a lot of those in the NFL, Ronnie Lott included...

Fact is, he has a great personality for TV and should do well...

I thought he was good in the booth last year in the playoffs for NBC. I heard he is replacing Bettis, and personally I think he will be an upgrade.

Let me help jog your memory, Royal Cheese . . .

Preseason 1999. St. Louis Rams acquire Trent Green as a free agent from the Redskins. All through camp, Green looks amazing. During the 1st 2 preseason games, Green goes 28 of 32, and the Rams offense looks stunning, scoring at will in the 1st quarter of these preseason games when the starters are in.

Then, in the 3rd preseason game the Rams face the SD Chargers. Rodney Harrison launches himself into Green's left leg, shredding EVERY ligament in Green's knee. Green was put on IR, and a former grocery store stock boy was inserted into the starting lineup at QB for game 1 of the regular season. This guy then went on to lead the greatest show on turf, and win the NFL MVP award that year.


Sound familiar?

By 1999, Harrison was already well known around the league as cheap shot artist, and a number of other current and former QB's phoned Green after the injury that summer to express their sympathy to him regarding what looked like a career ending injury, and to share stories with him of how they had either been hit by Harrison in a similar way or narrowly avoided having him take their knees out.

This is great news. NBC really needed another couple of bodies on the Football Night in America broadcasts.
