NBC’s Rodney Harrison joined the show to talk about Super Bowl week and more.
Harrison said you have to be careful as a player during Super Bowl week and commented on Ray Lewis’ approach. “Ray hasn’t said anything,” Harrison said. “He’s been humble. He’s taken responsbility. We don’t know what happened, but at the end of the day, he’s redeemed himself.”
Harrison said that people shouldn’t focus on Lewis so much: “The media … they’re lazy. Everything’s about Ray Lewis.” He said there are so many players that should be talked about — for example, Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith.
Harrison said the toughest thing to deal with Super Bowl week is family and friends. He said that he wanted to focus on football, but it was tough sometimes. And he said when he looks back at the Super Bowl, he thinks of the losses first — especially the David Tyree catch.
Harrison said that he’d probably rather play against Joe Flacco in this Super Bowl since you know he’s going to be in the pocket and he’s easier to prepare for.
Harrison said he respects Flacco, but he wouldn’t be as scared of the Ravens QB as he was of Peyton Manning.
