Quick Hits

*Ed Bouchette has a feature on OLB James Harrison. The gist of the article is that Harrison has some might big shoes to replace in Joey Porter, but Harrison certainly seems to be embracing the opportunity. I've liked what I've seen from him this preseason.

*Hines Ward had minor surgery on his broken nose Tuesday afternoon. Ward sustained the injury during Sunday night's 27-13 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. It appears there's nothing to worry about though. Ward could potentially even play Thursday against Carolina - he won't, but he could if the coaches needed him to.

*Hmmm, for some reason, I think there may be more to the Lance Briggs story than what SBN's Chicago Bears blogger is saying.

*Jeez the NFL is a monster. Sunday's Steelers-Eagles matchup drew around 9.2 million viewers, putting NBC ahead of the pack this Sunday.

*We're not the only ones who have taken notice of Willie Reid's shoddy performance as a punt returner. Mike Tomlin apparently called him out in front of his peers on Tuesday. Opportunities don't last forever in this league. I hope Mr. Reid can get it together in time to make this football team.
