Why is so many People PRESSED on James Harrison And Larry Fitzgerald being an ELITE Players right now?
Harrison started his career in 2002. He started games since 2003. So over 5 seasons he has 28.5 sacks. That's an average of 5.7 sacks a season. He has 3 picks. WOW real impressive if you ask me. He gets used as a pass rusher almost every down w/ the steelers of course he will put up good stats. ANYONE WOULD. Its what the 3-4 defense is about. He has 14 forced fumbles over 5 seasons.
And when he has a really solid defense make opportunities for him easier then yes he will have a good year. But saying that he is a great elite linebacker and among the best is a JOKE! Why do some people base One or two seasons them being the best at their Position?
As Far as Fitzgerald
He has averaged over his 5 seasons of play 1,195 yards a season. He averages 9.2 touchdowns a season. Plus he has Boldin who draws away defenders all day which leaves him open most times.
Oh and those jump balls. He only had about 6 of those during the season.
Im not saying these players are bad, but there not elite's yet.
Oh and jerry rice. He actually only played 17 full seasons. If you take those stats he averaged 1253.52 yds per season and 10.05 tds a season. And thats over 17 seasons NOT 5 with Fitzgerald. And I didnt include one season when Jerry Rice only played only 12 games and had 22 tds and 1078 yards. But sure if you want to add those games when he played for the raiders and seattle then sure.
Fitzgerald is not being able to be marked as HOF bound nor with James Harrison. Fitzgerald is good but not ELITE. Randy Moss is ELITE. He has proven it. T.O is Elite and he has proven it. As much as you hate it he is.
