Former San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison works as a studio analyst for NBC Football Night in America. He sized up the NFC North division yesterday on conference call. And Rodney Harrison is not expecting much out of the Chicago Bears. He’s not very high on Jay Cutler either. “I would almost have to say at this point I wouldn’t fear the Bears. Just too much inconsistent play at the quarterback position,” Harrison said. He was asked who he thinks could stop the Green Bay Packers from winning the NFC North for the third straight season: “I would say Minnesota. You know Detroit is a very undisciplined team. They’ve been up and down,” Rodney Harrison said. “They’ve got the best receiver in football, but from an injury standpoint on the defensive side, they’ve been inconsistent. They just have a lack of discipline. We’ve seen it the last couple years.” Rodney thinks the Vikes are the Packers biggest threat: “Christian Ponder, he’s good enough – not right now, but he can improve. He has so much room for improvement. With Adrian Peterson coming back off that ACL a year healthier – Leslie Frazier has done a wonderful job. I think his defense and the secondary have improved. I just think this team can stay healthy, if Christian Ponder can just be good – he doesn’t have to be great – I think this is a team that can beat Green Bay.” We’re just a few days away from seeing if Rodney Harrison is right or not. We’ll soon be able to stop our pontificating and speculation, and talk about actual football. Oh, whom am I kidding? People like me, and Rodney Harrison will keep pontificating and speculating, all year long.
