See James Harrison...

Pitt parts with there old superstars...on their own accord. Makes a difference. Harrison being cut creates comparable room as cutting DeAngelo with the same type dead money.

We selectively follow the Steeler model

What kind of cap hit are they taking for cutting Harrison?

Who, by the way, hasn't been very effective the last couple of seasons.

Funny that part was left out.

One thing you never hear about in Panther land is players holding out or making contract demands. Why? Because Hurney didn't make the players work for anything and would open negotiations with top dollar contracts (exaggeration).

I'm guessing he was finally caught for juicing and had to stop.

Having nine sacks in 2011 is being ineffective? Hmmmm

They created 5.5 in cap space....will eat about 4.9

Harrson plays the run just as well as always...declined some as a pass rusher only in 2012.

Didn't leave anything out....watch Williams' 2012 season and he is declining as well in areas. All anyone wants to do is talk about his performance against the worst D in history. The rest of the season wasn't just Chud and the OL.....Williams use to simply run better and not go down when the wind blew.

Steelers have a long history of parting with guys....we leave that important part of there model out. Which pretty much means we don't follow the Steeler model

His performance against the Saints is still indicitive of what he can do. I don't think he's any less effective than before, I think the change in the OL and Chud going full retard with the scheme is what hurt him and Stewart alike.

Harrison was good against the run, but not as good as he used to be. He had dropped off significantly as a pass rusher. However, they created space and got younger at a position vital for their defensive success whereas cutting DeAngelo would have only hurt us.

Comparing the two is stupid - which was really my point
