I think most of Steeler Nation is pretty happy that Tom Brady did not win his 4th Super Bowl.  Some of the players also joined in on the fun and are catching heat about it this morning.

The AFC North Blogger called Harrison “rude” for his comments.  It’s an absurd article for a couple reasons.  First off, it’s the truth.  Second, it was rude of the Patriots to cheat.   Third, why are you making a big deal about this?   Here are some excerpts from the article:

James Harrison has been called the dirtiest player in the NFL. The Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker added another title Sunday night: rudest player in the league.

This is just poor timing by Harrison and Clark. It’s also poor taste.

It was a low blow, and Harrison should know better.

The funny thing is people low blow the Steelers all the time after they lose.  No one ever defends us.  But I suppose such is the way these days.  I have no problem with Clark and Harrison saying this, because I probably talked about it at least once yesterday.  Would Tom Brady have those 3 Super Bowl wins if they hadn’t of cheated?  No one can say really but no one ever talks about it.  Why doesn’t their 3 Super Bowls or at least the one against the Rams have an asterisk next to it?  I think it’s a fair question.  But it’s the Patriots and Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.  God forbid someone say something bad against them.
