Steelers LB James Harrison defends embattled coordinator


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Recently returned Steelers linebacker James Harrison has a message for those who claim that NFL offenses have passed defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau by: "Bull."

The Steelers have struggled defensively all season and some believe the current unit is soft. Harrison, however, strongly disagrees.

"A lot of people are saying he's old," Harrison told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "That's bull. The defense works. Players have to play the defense. Period. It's on the players.

"Let's be plain and honest: let's cut out all the bull -- it's about you dominating your man, period. That's all there is to it."

The Steelers are yielding 23.2 points per game, which ranks 19th in the NFL. But they have given up 26 points or more in four of their six games.
