The James Harrison backlash from teammates depicts a mirage of what fans saw in ‘Deebo’

New, comments

Were Pittsburgh Steelers fans all hoodwinked?

On Wednesday the bottom fell out of the James Harrison story. When the Pittsburgh Steelers players were available to the media after practice, players didn’t hold back when it came to telling their side of the story in this seemingly endless saga.

Throughout the day different members of the media took to social media to give fans some comments, quotes and insight on Harrison leaving the team. When all was said and done, it seemed as if the persona of ‘Deebo’ fans grew to love, was nothing more than a mirage.

Nothing will every take away the unbelievable plays Harrison made for the Steelers, but the way things are unfolding upon his departure certainly leaves a bad taste in fans’ mouths.

Rather than quote all of the news and information which has come out about Harrison’s departure, and what his now-former teammates think about, I felt it would be best to just leave a running list of social media posts telling fans what is going on inside the locker room.

A huge shoutout to the members of the media for sharing this information with the fans, and websites like BTSC.
