New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers usage, or lack thereof, of James Harrison has many—including Harrison himself—scratching their heads.

Coming into this season, fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers were looking forward to seeing James Harrison extend his franchise-leading sack numbers in 2017. But what they’ve seen so far is James Harrison standing on the sideline, and the past two weeks he’s been standing there in street clothes.

With Harrison inactive the past two weeks, his frustration level is rising. While he’s toeing the company line in front of the media when answering questions, he’s using social media to show his frustration with not playing. After all, at 39 years old, Harrison didn’t come back and work his butt off every week, to not participate on game days.

Here’s what Harrison has had to say on social media regarding his lack of playing time throughout the 2017 regular season:

Harrison is a prideful person, and he’s been patiently waiting his turn for a chance to make plays. Now, it seems as if his patience is wearing thin, and maybe it’s time for the team to finally unleash Deebo to wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks and also to be a run stopper.
