Pittsburgh Steelers Linebacker James Harrison was penalized for another questionable helmet to helmet hit this week. This time it was against Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buffalo Bills. It might have been a borderline hit, but officials ruled that it was a helmet to helmet hit, and called the penalty. You have to wonder if Harrison’s reputation influenced the decision to throw the flag here. You can see a replay here, about :25 into the video. What do you think? Is Harrisons reputation as a big hitter influencing the officials, or was this really an illegal hit? Let me know in the comments.
