A number of members of the Steelers believe Ravens guard Chris Chester was intentionally trying to injure linebacker James Harrison on an extra point attempt last Sunday night.
“It was a dirty play,” inside linebacker James Farrior told Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
On the play in question, Chester “fired out” on the play, which is atypical for an extra point. Chester was called for a false start and the teams got into a scuffle afterwards because the Steelers felt it was a cheapshot.
“Of course it was deliberate,” Harrison said today in the Steelers locker room. “There’s no way that happens on an extra point because [offensive linemen] don’t shoot out. It’s obvious it was blatant. It was on purpose.”
Harrison said the play was “cheap” and a number of his teammates agreed.
“I think it was a designed play,” said defensive end Brett Keisel. “He just took off and kept driving him. I do think it was intentional.
It ticked us all off. . . . We had the last laugh.”
Man, we’d really love to see these two teams play again in the postseason.
